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.

The admissions process is almost solely based on your essay and portfolio. They demand a decent sized portfolio in order to get to know you better. I forgot how many pieces mine consisted of, but it was hefty and I spent months assembling and editing it out. I later saw my score for my portfolio (shh! i wasn't supposed to. it was a secret) and I received a fairly average score. I believe a 3.5/5. This just goes to show you that a basic portfolio that isn't pushing the bar probably won't get you admitted.

You just need a good portfolio and/or a loose mastery of the english language depending on your program.
