Feb 14 2008Fine Arts - Painting/Sculpture/Photography/etc This school practically hands scholarships to people on a silver platter - they're desperate to get more new students each year to increase their profit margins.
Just follow the submission guidelines and turn in a portfolio of your work, and they'll probably find it in their hearts to lure you here with a scholarship. ACT: 24 Male
Feb 08 2008Video/Media The School is wonderful. Most Art Schools claim to be only be really good at one or two things. SCAD seems to claim that there the best at everything. And for the most part they really are the best or at a competing level.
Sometimes the School is knocked because of there expanding size and lack of the national accreditation for art. I heard this from every other art school I visited in making my decision and it really because the other schools are jealous. SCAD has done more in 30 years then these other schools have done in a hundred. SAT: 1630 Male
Dec 27 2007Fine Arts - Painting/Sculpture/Photography/etc If you're breathing they'll let you in. The acceptance rate used to be low, around the 45% are, but it's since raised to at least 85%. They want your money. Understand that. SCAD has the highest paid president (Paula Wallace) out of any other United States college/university. Wallace makes about 1.5 million dollars a year. Take that into consideration when you think that since it's a not-for-profit school they will be focused on educating you well. ACT: 25 Female
Dec 13 2007Fine Arts - Painting/Sculpture/Photography/etc It is not difficult to get in unless you are going for a graduate degree. SCAD seems to have the policy of "let anybody in but fail half of them by the 1st quarter" The freshman classes are huge and then one by one drops out. ACT: 30 SAT: 1280 Female
Oct 26 2007Perfomance Arts I was a very active member of my theatre department and I had a lot to show in a porfolio. I recommend keeping up a good portfolio and of course good grades and test scores. SCAD gave me a pretty good combined scholarship for my test scores and portfolio.
For people concerned about financial aid(which I was), be aware it's hard to get a lot of money out of these people. Really be aware of the specifications and deadlines for their scholarships so you can get the most money possible. ACT: 30 SAT: 2195 Female
