UCLA Design

<p>Would any current students/ alumni like to comment on their design program? I am considering it.. i hear it's really competitive :[! is it worth it?</p>

<p>I'm not in the design program - but I have been considering it for awhile (I'm a 1st year). I hear that it's a terrific program but it only accepts 40 something people/year. It's pretty tough, but if you're really into it, you should try applying.</p>

<p>I'm a first year in the design major. Unless your portfolio is really really good, it's going to be hard to get in. I think that only accepted 40 something people out of 200 who apply. Grades/scores count also! You might have a better chance getting in the College of Letters and Science than Design, but hey, what do I know. Good luck!</p>

<p>Hi, I haven't seen anyone do this before, but I was wondering if someone could give me some kind of portfolio review (critique). I am applying to other art schools such as RISD, ACCD, and MICA , but I'm applying to UCLA's program because I think it would provide be with a well rounded education; also, UCLA's Drawing and Painting program is ranked #3 according to US News. What is troubling me is that UCLA's gallery of art and design major looks like nothing I have seen before - their "art" seems totally alien. Does anyone know of UCLA art/design majors who have websites displaying their "stuff." SAT I: 2040 SAT II: 790 (Math IIC), 760 (Chinese), 690 (Physics). </p>

<p>Welcome to CC!</p>

<p>When S (who graduated last spring) applied, there were 55 accepted out of 600 applicants. He keeps thanking us for encouraging him to apply to UCLA, since he didn't think he had a snowball's chance of getting accepted. ;) Is it worth it? He thinks so.</p>

<p>thanks little mother! haha</p>

<p>yeah, everyone's been telling me it's soo tough, but it's worth a shot right? :D they have to accept SOMEBODY. </p>

<p>hypocalvin, you have really good sat's and VERY good artwork. i don't know anything about judging, but it looks like you have tremendous talent as well as smarts. </p>

<p>all i can say is good luck, and at I think you have a definite shot!</p>
