<p>First, I'll tell you a little about my situation.</p>
<p>I'm homeschooled, so I get As.
I plan on graduating in the next couple months.
I took 4 years of independent Japanese study. I plan on taking the SAT II Japanese test to prove that I actually learnt something. That isn't until November though.
I got a score of 1870 on my first try at the SATs, with the lowest being math at 570.
I want to major in graphic design.
My parents aren't going to be helping at all, and I don't have savings for college.</p>
<p>I would like to stay in the southern Georgia area for college. The only colleges I know of that offer majors in graphic design around me are SCAD and Georgia Southern. SCAD, however, is very expensive, paying that off would be pretty hard for me. If I go to Georgia Southern, I'd be able to minor in Japanese, which would be a nice plus.</p>
<p>Which College do you think best suits me?</p>
<p>Should I wait until I take the SAT again, or should I go ahead and apply to Georgia Southern asap? As well as, should I wait until after I get my Japanese SAT II scores back?</p>
<p>Does Georgia Southern require me to send in a portfolio if I want to major in graphic design? Where would I be able to find their guidelines for sending them one?</p>
<p>Do I need to take a test since my homeschool isn't accredited?
I know GS says the SAT II, do they want me to take each subject? Shouldn't a good SAT score be good enough? [along with good transcripts]</p>
<p>Do all colleges require essays? and where do I find out what the topic should be?</p>
<p>I'm pretty sure that's all the questions I was wanting to ask.</p>
