Visit the campus and meet with an academic counselor, bring some of your work to be reviewed. They may even waive your application fee (I was able to get mine waived).

You have to know what you are doing, knowOct 18 2012Fine Arts - Painting/Sculpture/Photography/etc
You have to know what you are doing, know your personal goals before coming here. They have many things here but you have to ask for it. You have to WANT to learn and they will teach you.
This place has a lot of freedom. So if that's what you are looking for ... then you will love it here. There are a lot of Artistic people as well as Art-weirdo ... They have got skills! But Attitude might be a bigger problem... Most staffs are very nice! All of the Instructors are very good as well. But at the same time you could get away with many stuff.

You will definitely get big body of works when you graduate here... people are nice and its more like a working practice rather than normal collages...

Not really that hard to get in undergrad (grad school is much tougher), but they expect a lot of students. People who give it the full push get a lot back.
