I was an intended graphic design major and soDec 20 2007Art & Design Department
I was an intended graphic design major and so I went through a long portfolio process, but they made this very easy compared to the other schools that I applied to, and were great about letting me know my status in admissions and got all my work back to me. I would highly recommend showing versatility, lots of different mediums in your portfolio. They like to see that you're not stuck in one mode of thinking and have experimented with other approaches. I would also recommend just putting it together as nice and neat as possible. Presentation is everything. Be sure to include everything, and it's nice to put everything in order as required on the requirements sheet.
Depending on the program SU is moderate-highly difficult toOct 24 2007Journalism
Depending on the program SU is moderate-highly difficult to get accepted at. If you choose to enter an Arts&Sciences major (i.e. History, English, Bio, etc) you shouldn't have too hard a time. Apply to get into Newhouse for any mass communications major, and you'd better be solid. Like a 3.5 GPA or higher solid.
SAT: 2200 Male
