I'm currently a 19 year old male about to start my second year at a local community college in San Diego and I am looking to transfer to UCLA next fall and hopefully major in Design/Media Arts. I currently have taken about half of the 60 required credits required to transfer (most of them have been my General Education classes and now I need to take pre-requisites for the major) with a GPA of 3.9
I have heard that they weigh the portfolio much heavier then they do your GPA when determining admittance. I am more of a 3d artist then your typical 2d or drawing artist (however I am developing in that category). I have professional experience in the field, I have gotten internships at Sony Online Entertainment making video games over the past two years (this is what I want to do for a career). Would having this experience give me a little bit of an upper hand when applying?
Do you think I would get admitted into the Design/Media Arts major? Thank you!
