Applied, had a decent SAT score (just break 1000), and most important to the school, have $$$$. No portfolio required.

P.S. Don't beleive the brochures. Go visit, see the town and if you can, go out with a few students. Maybe it's the place for you. I put what I put here, because I felt like I was really mislead by the college, not because I think Scad isn't the right school for anybody. I still have friends who loved it. I came from the southfork of Long Island, so needless to say, I was used to somewhat higher standards of socializing and ...well cleanliness, and un-fried food......

Have a check made out to SCAD handy

Hmph. They let just about anyone in. Which is a huge problem. A ton of the freshmen are airhead film or fashion kids who think they're going to be the next Martin Scorsese or the next Cindy Crawford.

There is NO problem with earning acceptance to the College.
This is what NEEDS to be change--> Low quality students are being accepted, and are 'babied' through out the education process (thus holding quality students down).

I sent in the standard application and a portolio of electronic slides. To be honest, I've asked around and I have not heard of a single person who was rejected when they sent in their application (maybe implying they just moved on). My thought is that it is pretty easy to get into the school. They didn't even consider the portfolio in the application, but sent it over to be evaluated for scholarship, and I was awarded a $20,000 scholarship ($5,000 per year). They give out a few of those each year in various ammounts, 5, 10, 20, and i think there's a 30 in there before the full tution ride.

Assuming you get accepted, plan on your first year of school being more expensive as far as books and supplies are concerned. You'll have expensive art history survey books, paintbrushes, specific pencils and types of paints to buy. If you already have those, bring them, but don't be surprised if you're told you can't use them. If you don't have them, don't buy them before classes because the teachers have specific lists of what they want students to use; alizeran crimson or ultramarine blue or something, and if you get the wrong stuff, they may mark you down on the exercises.

I've added my email, but I don't know if it gets shut off some time after I graduate.
