Sorry for the confusion
    Ringling doesn't a form for recommendations. If I remember correctly you just get the recommenders to send the recommendations directly to the college and it will be matched up with you application. (I actually had my recs sent in like november and filled out my app in the last week, lol.)

    Wee, thanks, this should pacify my mumsie.

    On another note, while I think my portfolio might be strong enough to get in combined with my academic stuff, I don't think its anywhere near good enough for some scholarship cash, so I'm doing some hard core work to boost mah skills.

    How do you guys feel skill-wise currently?

    Ah yes, there is that thread, but , I thought it'd be nice to make it a little more personal, so people don't have to shift through a lot of other school portfolios. Also, this will help potential Ringling students who want to ask questions directed at accepted portfolio's. Just a suggestion.

    As far a skill goes I think I am slowly but surely getting better. I really need to improve before I send out my portfolio though, when I visited Ringling a year ago I was told I needed to improve to get into CA, and since then I have been drawing everyday, which has helped.

    The past week or so I have been carrying a sketchbook with me everywhere that I go, just to try and observe people/things and quickly transfer their movement to paper. It has been difficult to get used to but extremely helpful and fun. I am also enrolling in a figure drawing class as I haven't drawn from a model all summer, and that certainly will help in banging out some pieces for my portfolio. Anyway, I got some work and studying to do before I am confident that my work will help me get in but I think it is possible.

    My portfolio reviews with Ringling have been pretty neutral, but if I can get to at least borderline level grades and extracirriculars will probably get me in (independent study with a freelance animator, pre-college for two years, founding an animation club at my school). I've been doing figure study twice weekly, two studio classes, and alot of independent sketching in order to get to a more comfortable level.

    copperfire: i totally dig your idea, i was thinking it myself why not make a thread called something like "Accepted Portfolios-RINGLING ONLY" or something? it would me really helpful....

    how is everybody doing with their work? my confidence in my portfolio is pretty low although i have received positive reviews with every university...i dont know just not a lot of self confidence in traditional art

    5coop: I know that sometimes the artwork on this site can make you feel very humble about your own abilities, it has happened to me. But keep in mind the membership of this site is mostly professional quality or very very high student quality. Unless you are going for the scholarships, I think you should take positive reviews from schools as a sign that you are right where you should be. I believe there are only about 6-7 posted portfolios in the other thread, which does NOT mean that everyone applying is at that level!

    Just look at some of the awesome portfolios/sketchbooks and use them as inspiration that with enough work you can be there one day, but don't let it discourage you or worse, prevent you from doing art.

    I hope this helped a little

    If it's a comfort, in the two years I've followed these threads, only one person has been rejected.

    does this mean i dont even send it myself??! It seems weird i even have to ask them to send it; shouldnt they give it to me and i send it with my portfolio? what if i decide to send my portfolio later and they already sent it? seems weird...

    It's common for teachers to send recommendation letters directly to colleges, especially if that college requires the letter to be received in a sealed envelope. However, you don't have to ask your teacher to send it. You can get it from them and send it along with your portfolio.

    Better introduce myself too. My name is Nilah, I am a junior Computer Animation major. I transferred as a sophomore last year, and I'm 26, so I hope to see some older students applying for next year!

    Next year I'll be 21, so yeah I'll fit into the older student category. I'm glad I waited to go to school. Out of high school I wasn't serious, I didn't even consider art as an option for me, let alone the total awesomeness of an education in computer animation.

    Do you know how many older students end up attending vs. straight out of high school kids?
