    In an information session we were told that the reason animation/illustration were accepting so many more kids was because the government essentially 'forced' them to accept more.

    Sounds a little strange to me...

    Uh, well, my less than satisfactory portfolio submission has just arrived in Sheridan today....they've extended the dateline to today 12 march 04 so I think it will be a while before you guys get any replies from Sheridan.
    That's pretty idiotic... it's been nearly 3 weeks since my portfolio was due. I can't even imagine what another couple weeks would have made in the stuff I submitted, had I got the extra time.

    No offense... I'm glad your portfolio made the cut off date, but it's hardly a level playing field with such a huge difference in time.

    Hello, everyone!

    I find this thread very informative cuz I'm also in the midst of applying for Sheridan Canada. I've already sent my portfolio back in Febuary and they told me to expect a reply by April. Mind you, I'm applying as an international student so the requirements might be a little different. I know many of you here are Sheridan students, so I'd just like to know my chances in getting in and what were/are the standards of elligibity.

    Here are some samples of my work. I posted all around this forum, but here's a few links for convenient's sake.

    sample 1

    sample 2

    Pls tell me what you guys think; I'm anxious. Here's hoping!:chug:

    Kennygeeze, no problem. I was actually surprised they'd extend the deadline but I guess its meant for potential students who are submitting stuff from overseas like myself.

    For starters the Canadian Education Centre here advises potential students to apply for schools between Jan to March. They didn't take into consideration the specialised courses I guess. I didn't know Sheridan's original deadline was Feb 20 until I recieved the portfolio requirements on Feb 19, after a series of miscommunication with International Services.

    In any case By the time I heard they extended the deadline to March 12 (that was on March 8) by calling international services...I only had a few days to put together something. I'm working full time as a concept artist at a local CG studio and our teams are stretched to thin we work close to 70 hours a week. Had to take an off day just to dig out stuff to put in.

    They'll probably consider those who've sent the applications first....my guess is those who sent in on March 12 would only be given a place if someone pulls out or something.



    Endregan, thanks. OCAD portfolios for international students have an 09 Apr deadline I think. I'm sending mine soon to prevent any last min screwups that might happen. I got lucky with the Sheridan portfolio submission. Whether I get in or not is another story.

    Actually, that isn't true. this is straight from an illustration teacher at Sheridan. When they reviewed portfolios there were so few good submissions that they are hoping by extending it to get some better ones. They have more students to accept this year too and they didn't get enough quality submissions. If they didn't extend it the teachers are worried about the quality of the program. Kenny, I have heard that they might allow people who have already applied to send in an updated portfolio, not totally sure about that yet though

    Darth Massacre... thanks. That makes more sense. I guess wasn't considering the fact of the whole mailing in delay for the international students.

    PZ... that's extremely interesting. I can only hope that I was one of the few 'good' ones. My 2nd year illustration life-drawing tutor says my life-drawings were almost on par with the stuff they were hanging up in the hallway from the first years earlier in the semester. So, hopefully that means something. :confused:

    I'll either be really upset or laughing my ass off if I don't get in this time as I was looking at a couple portfolios that got in from a couple first years... and well... I'm not impressed. Half the stuff looked like it was done the night before and their drawing test was copied out of comic books.. :eek:

    Your drawings are very very good, however I know the requirements for illustration and i'm pretty sure animation? say specifically no fantasy, sci-fi, anime, comic book art, images of the horrific in any shape or form.
    THe your examples show fantasy subject matter? They want to see work from observation... that's all I really know. Life-drawing especially (apparently)

    The Golden Age of Sheridan is no longer

    Things have changed, drastically. Due to past success and its reputation, Sheridan's programs have grown a bit too fast (when in fact the industry's has declined).

    Don't get me wrong, Sheridan remains an excellent choice to pursue an education in animation or illustration.

    I wish those of you entering the programs much success.

    Regardless of whether you are accepted into Sheridan or not, remember that an artist's passion is his driving force, and it is that passion which will take you along the path to success, not a particular school or a piece of paper.

    Well, luckily I did send quite a number of my life drawing works. So, I'm not too worried; I just hope that they like it.

    Endregan, congrats on your acceptance.

    On an unrelated note I just heard yesterday that out of all the portfolios submitted to illustration at sheridan this year... around 800 or so... only 60 of those made the cut.

    I guess we knew already that they wanted more people to submit... but the numbers seem a little... well... surprising.

    Can anyone confirm or deny this?

    Epic, I didn't even know of any sort of entry test... at least... I didn't have to write one or anything.

    Is this still in reference to the illustration program?

    I thought they were increasing their numbers too, but everyone is saying something different and it's really annoying.

    :mad:

    I heard this as well from a teacher of mine. Something a person in faculty in illustration said. "Portfolio quality has been in decline for the past while"... and then something about them only lowering their standards so far before they sacrifice the quality of the program.

    And this is reason for them only filling 60 seats so far... quite lame considering they said not more than two weeks ago they're expanding the program to allow more people in.

    And anyone else find that all somewhat pretentious?

    yes, but i do understand the reason behind it...mainly to keep the graduates at a level worthy of international attention. This is where talent should play a huge roll in their decision making, but if it's a bad year i don't want a course to just shut down for the reason that the submitted portfolios were bad, if interest is there and the money is good teach em. But what i do think however is that fundies students should get first pick of things since they need to make a course decision on the fly and don't deserve outside interference.

    Thanks.

    On the sheridan website there's like this portal sheridan academic services link. You follow that through and you can check the status of your application.

    and my status was 'accepted'

    I know several other people that got into illustration as well... i'm pretty happy I'm going to be seeing them next year to some degree.

    The cursed site won't work for me!

    It keeps telling me that, "A serious error has occured in the desktop".

    I'll try again tomorrow morning, though it looks like the odds are against me. (60 out of 800!?!?)

    Yeah, my one friend was trying to log on during the evening and he kept getting the same error.


    Hmmm, you never know. I really wasn't confident that I'd get in, but I did for some reason.

    Are you in art fundamentals or anything?

    60 out of 800 is aproximitely what I heard... but I'm assuming they accepted more than that now. In my art fundies class alone... there were like 4 people that got in, so... 16 other classes, international students, magnet schoosl... they probably accepted more than 60.

    kenny, it's good to hear you were accepted to illustration! Wish you the best of luck, I'm still in 'waiting' for my response from them...took the testing and they mentioned it could take up to a week to hear back.

    I've logged in at non-peak times and the access sheridan login worked for me, just try it that way.

    Thanks everyone!

    Hexal, conditional acceptance means that you're accepted... you just have to meet the criteria they give you in the letter.
    Last year I got conditional acceptance to art fundamentals and basically they just wanted me to get my highschool diploma.

    Endregen, go to the sheridan site here http://www.sheridanc.on.ca click on access sheridan link.... it's one of the icons with pictures about halfway down the page.... log in, then follow the links through from SA services to learner services, admissions, and then check status of your application... and then it should tell you.

    That's great kenny, I got locked outta the site for awhile after i checked it once.

    I finally got back in but its still under consideration. At least they updated it a bit and now it says they recieved my portfolio. Damn this waiting!

    I have a question for you kenny, in highschool did you complete OACs or anything like that with the equivalent?

    Half my worry goes to if my portfolio was good enough, but the other half is that I skipped oac and only took this wierd college prep course that I think was an equivalent.

    Thanks, Red Mimic.

    No, although I took OAC courses as well as grade 12 university level course from the old curriculum, I did not get that specialized diploma from getting all six OAC's or whatever..

    However, at sheridan the certificate given out for completing art fundamentals is held in higher regard than any highschool diploma credentials.

    Since illustration is an applied degree program you might need that OAC diploma thingy... or that university level one from the new grade 12 curriculum. Or if you got the certificate from taking art fundies at sheridan... or waited until your mature student status kicked in... 4 years I think?

    I think illustration is mostly concerned about the portfolio over anything else... but these other requirements make you eligable.

    Did you submit option A or option B for the illustration portfolio?
    I had a look at your stuff on your site and I think your stuff is pretty solid..

    Good luck.

    EDIT: that college prep course might be equivelent... your best bet is to contact admissions at sheridan and find out. The specific E-mail link should be on your application status page.

    Endregen, how did you apply to sheridan? Was it through that OASIS internet applying service?

    If it was... it's the exact same pass and username as that... Well... it was for me anyways.

    I did the option where it isn't specific. I can't remember what one that is though.

    Anyways I took an art fundametals course at another college so I hope that counts like your sheridan one did.

    It would suck a lot if I couldn't get in because i'm missin an english credit, every english I took was advanced and I had an 80+ grade usually even though I spent half the time sleepin or drawin at the back of a notebook since I had the same english teacher for 3 years.
