Like I always say to each his own but do your research before entering this school.
They take anyoneSep 04 2010Art & Design Department
They take anyone. SAT scores don't matter nor does having an kind of portfolio. They will look at work you have done in the past so that you can bypass course that are irrelevant to you. Like intro to Mac. And make sure you are a decent artist, have some kind of talent besides being the creative being that you are. It really helps.
SAT: 1250 Female
Getting into the school is VERy easy, everyone getsJun 02 2010Interior Design
Getting into the school is VERy easy, everyone gets in...even this may not seem far if you are an amazing artist, but dont worry, by the end of the first semester a few people will be gone, by the end of the 1st semester A LOT more people will be gone. Many people going into art school think itll be easy, so wrong...
HAHAHHAHAHAHAHAH this was the eeasiest school to get intoMay 22 2010Interior Design
HAHAHHAHAHAHAHAH this was the eeasiest school to get into i didnt do shit to get in i showed up without an appointment and met some dude for 20 min and got in all u have to have is like a 100 dollar check for application and ur in.
I didn't do much other than applyApr 15 2010Design Arts - Industrial Design/Graphic Design/etc
I didn't do much other than apply. I do think they'll most likely take anyone willing to go which is why I'm sure they have a high drop out rate. But they are a business so attendance is a necessity as for any school.

Because I already had an AA from the Art Institute of Colorado, I did have some transfer credits. I was hoping for more. It would be nice if you could test out of more classes from work experience. Technology had changed too much since I was in my previous school which is why I only had a few classes that I could opt out of.
