<p>wow. This room is practically dead!
likely that noone will read this.. but..</p>

<p>does cooper look at counselor's and teacher's recs if you send them?
or do they just look at the home exams and SAT scores ONLY? (for arch)</p>

<p>if the recs are of no use,, i guess there's no point in sending them so...</p>

<p>um... bump</p>

<p>the home test is <em>almost</em> everything for arch, but a good rec can't hurt
for engineering it's mostly sat's, sat II's, GPA and AP sciences</p>

<p>Is the home test difficult? What about the portfolio?</p>

<p>i thought arch didn't need a portfolio..
the home test is really hard....</p>

<p>What is the home test like, for the art school at cooper?</p>

<p>The first time I applied I had a really nice recommendation but didn't get it I think they kept it on file though, because I never got it back). The second time I didn't have one, and I got in. My SAT's were 1040. The test IS difficult, and you have to work on it every minute that you have. There is also a questionnaire. They really want to be surprised. You need to think out of the box. They also like self portraits a lot. In the questionnaire, tell them why you really need to get in, don't be arrogant. I made fun of some of their questions, one was misspelled. I hope that helps. Good luck!</p>

<p>btw, that was for art. You need a portfolio and a test for arch. too.</p>

<p>for art, you need a portfolio + hometest and quite possibly a sketchbook.</p>

<p>for arch, hometest, SAT scores, transcript etc.</p>

<p>i think you have to write an essay too, as a part of the home test.</p>

<p>wats the hometest like for eng.?</p>
