What Students Are Saying

3.31 Average Rating
Practice, practice and more practice. At first everything may seem overwhelming, but remember the best of us started out as amateurs. Do not be afraid to fall, because when you do, you will stand up taller. School is meant to make mistakes, because if not, then you won't know whats right or wrong.

Go to the campus, talk to faculty. Making the physical connection to the place and the staff will give you the best understanding of the program and give the staff an opportunity to match your face with your application when it comes time to apply.

I applied for a graduate program and started investigating the curriculum, the staff and the students a year before applying. The caliber of work at graduate level is quite good, and portfolios and essays are required, so give yourself ample time to research before applying.
Aaron from Canoga Park, CA
Work on your portfolio and take it serious. Work hard but dont worry too much.
Alfonso from Panorama City, CA
Visit the campus and schedule a meeting with a counselor to go over your portfolio. They are very helpful and will let you know what you need to do to improve or if there's a scholarship deadline.
