    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?

    Hey everyone - My name is Rachele and I'm a freshman Computer Animation major. Not sure just how many older students we have this year, but I am 25 and I know of another CA major who is 28. It's not uncommon for older students to attend school here, but we're definitely in the minority. I feel so old in all my classes!

    Well, hopefully all the older students will stop feeling so lonely when I get in.

    I'm 23, but will be 24 if I get accepted into Ringling. I don't have much of a portfolio right now, only sketches and copies from pictures. I'm getting there.

    And I'm opting for either CA or GAD.

    My name is Tyler, I'm 18 and will be applying for Computer Animation at the end of the year.

    I graduated High School already and was accepted as an Illustration major at Ringling last year, but decided to wait a year on account of not being sure what I wanted to do, and also not quite comfortable with going to college yet. In some ways, it was a neccesary decision, but I feel like this extra year will be of great value to me.

    It's great to see this thread up and running and to see some potential future classmates.

    If anyone's interested, my sketchbook was essentially the portfolio I turned in last year to be accepted as an Illustration major.

    See you guys around!

    hi im justin, im gonna be a senior this year, and i see that figure drawing seems to be extremely important but im wondering if it has to be from real life because im pretty sure it would be impossible for me to get any nude person to pose for me while i draw for them

    im also applying for computer animation, ive gotten pretty good at blender 3d, an open source modeling program

    Basically summing up your portfolio: Wow.
