I came in for a portfolio review and tookMay 04 2010Art & Design Department
I came in for a portfolio review and took a tour of the facility. I would recommend reading about the program before finalizing. I chose it because i wanted the diversity and the academics as well as the art factor, and i was not disappointed. I also recommend looking at the student work as well, so you can see what students are doing and the quality of work they are producing to see if you can see yourself producing similar quality and standard of works.

The university is paid more money for each programApr 04 2010Art & Design Department
The university is paid more money for each program it has, so I'm pretty sure the art program is the 'weak' point (as in you don't need excellent grades to get in). Half of your acceptance relies on grades, half on your portfolio. I've seen some students who are absolutely AMAZING fine artists, and I've seen people who are very weak drawers. I feel like if you apply and have a portfolio that is somewhat decent, you'll get in.
