hey. thanks for responding. im in accessories design. yeah, if the person who reveiwed you likes you, you're in. the professor i got, who is the head of my department was really nice and she said if for some reason i dont get in to call her and she will pull strings, so maybe you can do the same thing. but for the most part, the reveiwer makes or breaks you...they could care less about grades and stuff.
i found out exactly around this time(i was accpeted last year but took the year off).this is when they start sending out the acceptance letters so look out, it could be any day now. if you applied for next spring or something though, then dont expect it until at least the end of the summer maybe later.
