  • I am researching this school and have not visited the campus

    What I'm doing to get in is to work on the academics first, and one I have those requirements met, as well as testing that needs to be accomplished and whatever else have you; work on your art, your design, whatever you're doing, do whatever you can to make it the best you can offer pre-education. You want to show that you have the talent, initiative, will, and determination to succeed, not just in their school, but in life, and ultimately the work force that Otis preps you into.

    Save your money early or you will be graduating with a lot of student loans. Know how to manage your time correctly so you can finish all the projects. It's art school but the homework and in class work is far from easy. It's always challenging, but always fun if you really love art or design.

    Always draw, keeping a sketchbook builds up drafting skills. Do not be afraid to ask your professors to help. Your teachers are there to help you and they will be happy to spend some time to assist your concerns. Making connections in school is important. Your class mates after graduation will all go into the art industry so it is important to make friends and keep in touch. The same goes for your professors because all of them have or still are working in the art world. DO NOT PROCRASTINATE!: it is so simple to let work pile up because you meet once a week for every class. Even though school gets stressful and you feel you never have time for a social life, it is important to take a break from your work and then go back to is.

    A lot of work but it is totally worth it being here. Find somewhere else to live besides the dorms because they are very pricey
