    Agreed so hard. I regretted that, but I don't think I was good enough at that point to be working on it the summer after grade 11. I ended up just bringing a pile of character doodles and skeleton + animal drawings, the kind of stuff I'd do normally to show them what I was about. It went wonderfully despite me being unprepared, the people I talked to were very helpful. Go to portfolio day, definitely. At the very least, it will give you that sense that you really aren't alone


    ....And it convinced me that OCAD was not the place for me. At all.

    That being said, do we only request certain pieces to be appealed and not our entire portfolio?

    Received my score sheet today. 60/100. The passmark was 59.
    But still no change on access Sheridan.
    I should receive an offer right? I hope they don't reconsider.

    You got your scoresheet before the results? That's odd..
    Which program is it by the way?
    Probably just wait a day or two, or e-mail them about it?

    Smile No score yet

    I found out I got into the animation program last week (huge happy/dorky grin) but haven't gotten my scores yet, probably because I live in the USA and it'll take longer to send. Hopefully I'll get them today, I'm curious to see what I got.

    Anyways, extremely excited to start school here!

    I know! This makes me crazy and mad at them!
    I emailed them about it, and Jennifer Crane (Admission Specialist for the Bachelor of applied Arts) replied that today (friday) is the final day of offers of admission. I just don't get it. If I passed both, how hard is it to change my status, why keep it to the last day, last minute. I'm from Montreal and this is a huge thing for me as I have to start planning the move as early as possible.
    It really has been a torture for the past couple of days... you know how it feels.
    I don't even want to imagine how hard the wait must be on the waitlist!

    For those on the waitlist, keep strong!

    Edit: I applied to Illustration btw

    Also, should we provide photocopies or something of the piece you want re-evaluated? I'm not sure how the score-changing process works here, but I'm guessing if they want to change the score, they'll need to see the picture? (Unless they have copies of it... somehow?)
    Hey did you request the "Admission Decision Review Procedure" from them? I called them earlier today and they sent me that attachment.

    According to Step 2 of the procedure: An applicant must submit a request in writing to the Registrar within ten (10) working days of the date of
    the original admission decision.

    I'm still under consideration damnit!

    Just sent admission a mail because i just woke up and it's obviously too late to call...Ain't night shift fun.

    I'm starting to think they make "out-of-province" applicants wait on purpose(from quebec too).

    The thing is they didn't even check my cegep transcript untill today! I had to call them and ask what was going wrong. She called me back in like 40 minutes saying that i met all the requirements. I suppose they leave the quebec transcripts for the very end, because...??? they're different from ontario ones? i don't know.
    you definately should call Sheridan. You will speak with Jennifer crane (you can dial the # which corresponds with person's name). She is very polite and easy to deal with.
    Good luck to you.

    Hey congratulations ufo264! That was a long wait. I guess i'll see you as a classmate then. Good luck with the moving!

    For others who are still waiting, I hope you guys get results soon and good luck!

    Well, I applied as an international student and I got my results about 3 days ago. I don't understand what order they're doing with the processing of portfolios, transcripts and results.

    Hey is anyone here renting off campus? I'm looking at the places4students website, are any of you guys just renting one room in an apartment or something? I think it's a bit weird to rent with other people, but at least they're students too!

    well i emailed them couple of days ago asking the whole appeal process and they replied saying i should contact the full time studies and dial ext 2962. I gave them a call and requested the entire appeal procedure and they sent me the pdf at my sheridan mail. give it a try!

    I've decided to appeal as well.
    I'm guessing they don't work on Saturday to Sunday, so I'll have to wait till Monday to call. By the way, where can I find the correct number to call? Is it in the access sheridan site?
    Also, does anyone know whens the deadline for appeal?
    And, do I hand in the letter and resubmissions in mail or can I give in person?

    Replies are much appreciated.

    A while ago when I got accepted to art fundamentals, I got a letter which said to register for a "Discover Sheridan" academic information session on April 24. For the people who are already in Sheridan, is this just like the Open House they had back in November where you get general infomation then tour the campus or is this session different? My father thinks it's a waste of time if it's the same thing, but it says it's exclusive for "successful applicants" so should I go? Is anyone else going?

    I guess if I go I could bring my portfolio and ask the faculty what I can improve on, but the travel distance is a problem...

    Anything 'Discover Sheridan' would just be a tour sort of thing, probably very similar to the one you already went on. There won't be any profs there or anyone who could give you feedback on your art.

    I hope this excerpt helps answer your questions:
    "An applicant must submit a request in writing to the Registrar within ten (10) working days of the date of
    the original admission decision. For purposes of this policy, applicants are deemed to have received the
    decision ten (10) days after the date of mailing by Sheridan to the address contained in the applicant’s
    application form. The letter must state clearly the reasons why the appeal is being requested, the facts
    that the applicant considers to be relevant to the admission decision review, as well as any previous
    attempts to address the situation."

    This is step two of the appealing process.

    Step one asks you to contact the Admission's Office to ask why you have been declined first, and when you're not satisfied with their explanation, THEN you can write them a letter.
    Hey, thanks so much!
    err... I'm worried about calling them to ask why I got declined. What if they give such a good reason that I'll have nothing to say back about. haha

    I showed my score sheet to my teacher and he agreed that I should'f been declined. Wow, what a teacher... and his job was to help me get me IN!
    I have so much corrections to make on my portfolio now.

    Your teacher's job is more so to make sure you aren't thrown in to an industry you aren't at all prepared for. Being preemptively rushed into a program you aren't ready for isn't going to help anyone in the long run.

    That being said, if you truly believe your evaluation was unfair, it doesn't hurt to call. If the worst case scenario is being told 'no' a second time, you wouldn't have lost anything. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

    Animation portfolio workshop info session at sheridan college

    Hi Folks.

    I posted info on the upcoming public information session at Sheridan in the lounge forum, but I figured that there are probably some Fundi's students here who will benefit from this so I've put the info here as well....

    This Wednesday April 14 we'll be holding an info session about the Animation Portfolio Workshop in the Art Fundamentals Department at Sherdan, Trafalgar campus.
    We'll be in room A-107 from 11am to 12pm.

    Vince Peets the Director of our program will be giving the presentation , and we'll have some former Workshop students on hand with successful animation school entry portfolio's for all to view.
    This will help some of you to get an idea of the type of portfolio that's getting a student into Sheridan these days.
    All are welcome.

    Gerard Sternik / Director
    Animation Portfolio Workshop

    hey to answer your question, they replied to me on both hotmail and the access sheridan webmail.


    Hey guys does anyone know when we actually resubmit our portfolio? do we arrange a meeting with them? is there a specific date in which everyone resubmits? do they call us after they receive our appeal letter? or do we hand in our appeal letter along with our portfolio in a given date?
    If anyone know the specific procedure for this, then please do share

    As for calling them to ask why you have been declined, I think it's a good idea to try anyways. There really isn't anything to lose; it might even give you ideas on what pieces you should appeal for. And it might help you for next time too. :>

    Plus, you can always ask for appeals on criteria like "believable character" and stuff. When I look under their criteria, some of it just kind of strikes me up as subjective.

    For me, I have a sort of weird situation... in my case, my room drawings' line quality was actually a mess, but they gave me a three. However, the line quality on my character were MUCH cleaner, but they gave me a two. I wanted to ask them about that. :9 If you have some odd comparisons to something like this, you might want to ask them about this too?
    Ya, it's worth a try. I guess it'll be a good chance to ask questions and to clearify confusion with marks as well.
