    It's a very difficult school to most. I have seen many drop out and others transfer/take time off. People seem to come in with the idea that this is art school so it should be easy, but it's hard if you actually care.

    Make sure that this is where you want to go. Look up the classes, the facilities, the teachers and see if there is somewhere else better. It is true that there is a high acceptance and a low graduation rate, but when you survive through the first few months when you see other students falling by the wayside you feel incredibly sure in your art. This is a hard school for people who only consider themselves artists.
