    While it's not strictly nescesary, I would definately reccomend it sometime before you make your final decision to attend any school. It's invaluable to scope out a school in person and see if it feels like a good fit or a bad one. Sometimes a "vibe" can tell you a lot and you won't get that from a catalogue or a NPD.

    Plus, it helps to alleviate some of that nervousness during move-in.

    Yep. Dito to what oddyti said.

    Plus... Any excuse to go to Sarasota is nice. If you do visit, make sure you check out Siesta Key Beach. It's about a 20-30 minute drive from campus, and it's super, super nice. When I visited, I wound up finding around 40 sand dollars in two days.

    Not that that should have any effect on whether or not you go to Ringling. Everyone knows that during their senior year, CA majors don't even see the light of day.

    Thatís why they call the CA labs "The Cave"(or at least thatís what it was called when I did my tour), the only tan you will get is from the warm glow of the Computer monitor.

    So when are you guys sending out your portfolios exactly? Sooner the better, right?

    I will probably submit for illustration around March; But I don't expect to go unless by some miracle I get a good scholarship.

    I'm actually changing my stance on "sooner the better", personally... I mean, if I finish early, that's good, but I don't want to rush things. I'll send in my portfolio when it's done... I'm hoping that's early/mid December...but who knows. I might have to overnight it on January the 14th.

    I'm exaggerating, but I really don't see myself finishing by December at this point.

    Yes! Make sure you don't stick a bunch of half-arsed work into a portfolio just to get it in early. As long as you get it in by the deadline you should be AOK. Quality is far more important than being the early bird for your application as long as it isn't actually late getting there!

    Is it just me, or is senior year completely full of drama?

    It's completely off topic, but I really can't stand being at my high school any more. I want to get out!

    I read somewhere that she was exorcised a few years ago. Some people believe that she was only weakened and isn't completely gone, though.

    hey guys, quick question about portfolio day. The one nearest me (New Orleans) isnt until January 28. Would that be pushing the deadline a bit (im going for illustration, so i have the March deadline), or would it be okay to submit in early to mid February? Just wondering, because i would REALLY like to have someone look at my portfolio, seeing as ive never had an art class and would like some professional feedback.

    Yes, that would be fine! I didn't send off my college portfolios/applications until three days before they were due (yay, overnight FedEx!), and I was fine. As long as it's in by the March deadline you're going to be fine.

    It's really not a race to get your protfolio in before everyone else people, so stop agonizing about getting things in early. Just make sure you meet the deadline and they'll be just as happy as they would if they had gotten it a month earlier. Really.
