It was actually very easy getting into my program. You just have to be diligent with your art, and have a strong portfolio! I'd say the most important criteria is having good grades from High School, and LOTS of life drawings in your portfolio; however, make sure to be yourself and include personal artworks, and things drawn from fantasy and from your head! The college loves to see diversity, and potential in each prospective student. I was accepted a few days after submitting my online portfolio actually, and I'd say my works were amateur at best. Just remember that they are looking for these things in your art : diversity, some skill, life drawings, and that you are able to challenge yourself!
