loffyglu: A portrait view of Alphonse Mucha's "Moët et Chandon" (Champagne White Star) (Moët et Chandon)
[personal profile] loffyglu
So on Friday I had a portfolio review at MICA (for those of you who don't know, I'm a college freshman, but I plan on transferring to a new school; for a lot of reasons, like location and program and such, MICA's my top choice). I only had about 10 or so pieces at the time, a few of which weren't even "finished," so I was very nervous (especially seeing the competition, oh geez... all these awesome painters and sculptors and some of them weren't even 17 yet maaaaaan), but...

It went super well! I've been told that admissions counselors at art schools tend to be brutally honest--like, if they think you aren't good enough to be at their school, from what I understand, they'll tell you straight up. That was what I was afraid would happen; since I don't have a lot of art background at the college level, having started as a pre-law student, she didn't seem to have any confidence in me at all (even warning me I wouldn't be as competitive as someone who's been dedicated to an art career for a longer period of time). Then she saw what I've actually done, and she said she was actually very impressed! She mentioned I'd probably be a very competitive candidate with my body of work. And MICA, from what I understand, is a verrrrrrrrry competitive school, so :,D (Hell, I don't know how much they have to fluff us up and everything she said could be bullshit for all I know, but I was so glad to hear I'm doing fine! She also gave me some genuinely really good advice on what I should and shouldn't include that I hadn't thought of before ;u; )

And I didn't even have to miss classes for it, since I don't have Friday classes this semester 8,D
