I had a brilliant portfolio and would of had a better scholarship if i was not rushed through the process. They bypassed telling me how to do initial portfolio reviews and said i could sign up for scholarships in april. they did not tell me these were not the same scholarships they provided for admitting students and i was left with nothing.

Anyone can get into SCADNov 25 2012Fine Arts - Painting/Sculpture/Photography/etc
Anyone can get into SCAD. Not everyone can pay for it, at least not after they graduate.
My advice is to take foundations courses at a decent community college. The quality is nearly the same at a modest fraction of the price. Then, look for every alternative to going to SCAD before committing to the decision to attend there.

Don't believe the hype of their advertising or campus tour.

Toured the schoolJun 03 2012Perfomance Arts
Toured the school. Filled out an application. Went to an interview. Got a better than average transfer of credits. Was told that it would only take about a 7 quarters to earn my degree. Sure did not want to go here for the snotty students.

Admittedly, it is a very easy University to getMay 13 2012Fine Arts - Painting/Sculpture/Photography/etc
Admittedly, it is a very easy University to get in which can be a good and bad thing. The bad thing: it doesn't filter out talent. The good thing: because of this, it gives every one a chance to succeed.

However, I feel that the effort that you have to put in here is enough that it filters out people who are not interested or does not want to put in the effort to succeed their dreams. It's a test of one's determination.

As it is an expensive school, I would highly recommend you to know what you want to do before actually applying for the school, after all you wouldn't want to waste your money on a bunch of classes that you don't need.
