So easy to get into the University, a littleJan 10 2012Art & Design Department
So easy to get into the University, a little harder for the art program/honors college. Make sure you apply early. I had a friend who was at a similar level as me artistically who did not get in. I believe it's because he applied only a few days before the art portfolio deadline. Honors college isn't hard to apply for as long as your GPA and SAT scores are high and you write a good essay.
I got into all my other schools (UVA, JMU) but came to VCU for the art program and financial reasons. Some people were surprised that I did not go to UVA. But let me tell you, college is college is college. I've met some people here who got into Ivy League schools. Choose your college for its degree program... I know when I was picking schools i was super stressed out but as soon as I made a decision I felt a million times better. If you are worried that VCU is too much of a.. I guess, not up-standing school, join the Honors college. But after a semester or two you'll realize, like i said before, that college is college. Don't go into debt trying to get an education at a fancier school when you could probably get the same or better education at VCU.
