2 weeks maybe? That's what it took for mine to get a response.

I sent my portfolio yesterday (somewhat last minute), applying for admission to the illustration program, spring 07.

Great thread here, thanks for all the info!
I'm planning to transfer to AC for Fall 2007 and I have a question.
On the AC website they say that sketchbooks can be a useful addition to a portfolio. So, would it be wise to submit multiple sketchbooks in my portfolio or should I just keep it to one?
and how should I submit the sketchbook? Should I just put it in the front cover of my portfolio, or should I put it somewhere else?

Just got my acceptance letter on Saturday. Took about 2 weeks. Very excited, it is pretty much a done deal as long as I get some sort of financial aid or scholarship help. I have pretty much accepted the fact that I am going to take out some massive loans to get through... but I think I have come to terms with that.
@ document - I had a list of items/coverpage that I included with my portfolio, I listed my sketchbook and then just packed it in the case with everything else.

Can't let this thread fall to the second page....
After sitting on pins and needles for a few weeks I finally recieved my award/scholarship info from Art Center.
5000 - if anyone cares - I am just happy to get anything. I can't wait to start, now I just have to start the task of signing over my soul to lenders, hopefully I can find some who will let me get money with my credit.
Any recomendations on how to start the proccess(like go to a credit union etc?, I am farly clueless as to the next step.)
Has anyone done the federal workstudy through Art Center? I am curious as to what kind of jobs they have you do.
Does anyone recommend a good place to live? - I would love to be with fellow Art Center-ists
If anyone is looking for a place to live and/or roomates I'll be heading down the end of Nov. to look and would be more than happy to keep my eyes open.

Anyhow...getting private loans are pretty easy. In the financial aid packet there should be this sheet showing you all the financial ad portals. Through this, you can find a list of private lenders (Citibank, Chase, Education Finance Partners, etc). Pretty much anybody that breathes can get a private loan....but the interest rates are pretty crazy. Just do some research....most of the private loan rates I've checked are based on the prime rate, which is already at 8.5%. Of course this is plus or minus a percentage based on your credit score or co-signer. Anyhow, it's all pretty much self explanatory....just read the fine print!

Hi everyone! I'm a brand new member and I'm planning on applying to Art Center for the Summer of '07. My question is, what major should I apply to? Illustration? Transportation design? Product design?
I'm in the process of reading all 800+ posts on this thread (up to page 8) and there seems to be some controversy as to which major is the best fit for those interested in concept design. I know it really depends on the person, so I guess I should tell you a little about my goals and interests.
I would really like to be a really well rounded artist that can work equally well with organic subjects and harder surfaces. Although Doug Chiang and Crash McCreery are both incredible designers, I don't JUST want to be a "robots and spaceships" guy or JUST a "monsters and creatures" guy. I'd love to have the environmental skills of Craig Mullins, the figure/character rendering skills of Travis Charest and the vehicle design skills of the ILM/SW/ST crew. I prefer to work with graphite/colored pencil/markers, but I would like to learn to paint. I want to improve my ability to model objects and interiors from my imagination, which the ID majors seem to emphasize, as I'm really weak in that area right now, but I'm not super interested in just drawing cars. Nor am I interested in taking courses on model making, ergonomics, design ethics, etc.
Right now the stuff I have for my portfolio is more geared towards illustration, but if trans. or prod. design will be better for concept design, I guess I'll start over.
This thread has been a tremendous resource for me!

hambucker sounds like illustration would give you a more well-rounded education.
as for everybody else (and maybe you too mr. ham i don't know): for chrissakes learn to draw! every grad show on the entertainment side of things have been really depressing.
(i don't need to know how to draw anymore cause i'm all fine-art hohoho)
seriously though don't depend on ArtCenter to teach you the foundation you need.
i still like ArtCenter though.

Yeah man I got 5K a semester. Which I am pretty happy and gratefull to get. Looking at some of the previous posts it seems like it may be right around average for the Illustration scholarships though.
Right now my big debat is deciding weather to start in Jan, or defer enrollement for a semester and try and put away a little money, I qualify for loans but that is still money I have to pay back(with interest). If I really work my but off I can get enough scraped together for a semester, but I worry about starting late... I'll be 25 by the time I start in Jan.
Any thoughts are appreciated....
Are you attending Art Center now?
