The only program I know about is AdvertisingSep 29 2008Art & Design Department
The only program I know about is Advertising. I didn't have too many drawing pieces but mostly all of them were observation pieces. I'd say drawings made up half my portfolio and the rest was a mix between photography and adobe design/advertising pieces to show potential in the intended field. But they require you have at least 5-10 pieces you've drawn. Good Luck!

I applied late as a transfer student and they accepted me. All I pretty much needed was a portfolio sample, a personal statement letter and at least a C average. Obviously the money plays a big part in this too.
