SQFunkis Posted June 11, 2010 Share Posted June 11, 2010 I've been lurking around these forums without registering for some time now, but application season is getting ready to strike and I'm starting to wig out. I was hoping I might be able to find some advice on the process (or at least find a few others who might cower with me). I'm sort of a non-traditional student (27 and working full-time through a second bachelor's degree), and I'm feeling a little under-prepared at the moment. I've been doing a some research over the last year and I'm closing in on a rough list of schools to check out. I'll be visiting the places that are close to where I live now, but I worry that I won't get to see some of the others before the next semester starts up in august. I've been keeping tabs on possible references, and should be able to get that settled around the end of the summer. I've also been working on a couple basic statements that I can use as outlines and tailor to each school/application as necessary. The portfolio is giving me some trouble, but it seems to be an issue of whittling everything down (I tend to do sculpture/installation work, so I'm working on getting the point across with just one or two images per piece) rather than theme and continuity. My basic plan is to finish as much of the administrative work as I can over the summer, then use the fall to clean things up and tie the loose ends. I've been going over this plan in my head for months, but I keep thinking I'm missing something big. Is there anything major I've overlooked, or another angle that's worth investigating? Is anyone else out there as terrified as I am? Thanks in advance for any advice. PS - This is pretty long-winded, sorry. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
