I like video games!

lol it's tough because i have many games to play and i never do. I figure any time i have to be playing video games i should be drawing instead. Ah, the sacrifice- gotta love it!

I have no college fund, sigh oh how well my parents plan. Their plan is, hey work hard and get scholarships! I love video games and movies and the only parties I've ever been to with tons of people are school sponsored games after a football game...at a Christian school. No beer or drugs there.

I don't know how to word this so I don't sound like a bitch, haha. But if you genuinely feel that something (in this case, Ringling) is THE thing for you, you'll find a way to go. Money is just an obstacle that you have to pass, but if you let something like money (which is always coming and going) get in the way of your ambitions, then to me it just says that you didn't try hard enough. OR, it wasn't as important to you as you thought.
*There are loans, scholarships, grants.
*You could wait and move down to Florida, live there for a year and be eligible for the state grants.
*You could get a full time job, or multiple part time ones and just save, save, save.
*You could set up an online store, get your designs accepted at Threadless.com for t-shirts and earn money that way.
*Enter contests, do commissions, etc. etc.
Ringling's 30,000 tuition (+housing) is extremely steep, yeah. For me, my family has literally NOTHING so I can't help but be worried how I'm going to pay for it if I get accepted, but there's ALWAYS a way if you look for one.
I just had to get this out of the way because, to be perfectly frank, it bothers me when people use money as an excuse :/ So what if you're 100,000 in debt? At least you're HAPPY and have a set of skills that NO ONE will ever be able to take away from you. To me, that is invaluable.

Yeesh...from seeing everyone's sample artworks, I really don't think I stand a chance with getting in this year. I've taken Saturday college courses in Philly for two years, but I don't feel like my art is all that great to make it this year. Still, I'm trying to keep positive! If I don't get in this year, there's always next year if another college I choose doesn't quite fulfill my expectations.
I just want to know already!! Haha

Nervous is an understatement! I get waves of nausea whenever I think about judgment day being so close...
To make my self feel better about rejection I already planned out the next year by setting up a timeline, general landmarks, and have even scoped out what classes I want to take at the community college I'm going to transfer over from my university if I don't get into Ringling. LOL.
Don't assume! Don't assume until you get that letter/package in the mail. Just be optimistic! and hope for the best! And the peeps here at Concept art are only sample. You don't know how the other hundreds of portfolios might be like. They could be utter crap? But yes, like Aresa said, keep your chin up C:!

Ahh. I just got a postcard from Ringling that said they don't have one of my transcripts, even though I sent it two weeks ago. I emailed them but obviously won't get a reply until monday. Trying hard not to stress out.
