What Students Are Saying

3.85 Average Rating
Make sure you work hard and turn your work in. A lot of people think Art School is like high school. Or community college. Professors don't know how to get it across and become frustrated what part of 3 days missed, or don't turn in your work do people not understand. If you are not up for the challenge don't waste your parents money.
Veronica from Torrance, CA
Foundation year may seem kind of frightening from a perspective student's point of view, but the level of information you will retain and use for the rest of your life is not comparable to any experience I have ever had before. I would recommend keeping an open mind and having a very detailed schedule in order to manage your time most effectively as to not get overwhelmed by the heavy workload.
Natasha from Los Angeles, CA
If a class starts at 10:00 AM, be there by 9:15 AM. You'll thank me later.
CJ from LA, CA
If you plan on attending Otis, make sure you understand what you're putting yourself through. You need the drive, the passion, in order to make it here. I have not yet started officially, but I will in a few days. From what I heard, I have the biggest challenges ahead of me, but I'm willing to jump all those hurdles in the way.

Get ready to work hard! It's pretty easy to get in, but it's whether or not you can survive the workload.

Jessica from National City, CA
Time management, have supplies ready, try to get a lot of sleep and eat healthy.
Kurt from North Las Vegas, NV
Stay on top of your work. Do it ASAP because you WILL only get more. I find writing a lot of To Do lists help. Also I am trying out an app on my iPod called iHW and it has your class schedule and hw assignments for each class. Check your school email!!
