yay more college venting

Posted 12-09-2010 at 10:59 PM by Ascherit
So apparently early decision acceptances came out today, and according to facebook quite a number of my friends got accepted to the college of their dreams (so far it's been Cornell/Wash U/Columbia). Yay for them.

BUT FOR ME

APRIL 1ST

USC (Uni of South Cali)

UGH (no thatís not an acronym)

Looking back at my portfolio, I realized that I couldíve done better. Added more. Scrapped some. I stumbled upon a college help forum and there was this one topic involving a USC animation applicant who had okay grades (well maybe lower-tier according to USCís standards) but an amazing portfolio. I donít like comparing myself to other people, but in a competitive environment where there is an 8% (or less) chance of acceptance out of 150+ other applicants, I canít help it. I was already regretting my portfolio that I submitted this Monday, how I didnít have enough traditional works, and how the stuff I had wasnít creative or imaginative or original ó qualities that pretty much define the animation major. Hell, even my artist statement wasnít even creative. Just a bunch of facepalm-worthy cliches. Geh.

I know itís not the end of the world if I donít get accepted (I DO have back-ups), but itíll be a pretty depressing April 1st.

And I thought Ringling was bad with its ~90 out of 500 acceptances for its animation major.

PS - totally unrelated but calc test trolled me -- got an 87 but my average is currently 89. I HATE THOSE BORDERLINE GRADES.

    I wouldn't worry about it too much (for now), to be honest I completely BS'd one of my applications (LITERALLY sent it on the last day, crappy essays, etc) and I still managed to get in (this is UW Madison).

    Then again, I was totally denied by UoI, but maybe I wasn't, I never got a letter from them (lol). Eh, I didn't really want to go there anyway, they are like obsessed with their corn...

  2. Ack, sounds bad. But since it's outta your hands now, you should just try and enjoy yourself for the time being :B
