10 Jul What to do if you don’t get in – eBook
Studying this book following your art college rejection letter will help you to:
>> see the situation objectively.
>> reflect on your application process.
>> establish your motivations and if you want to re-apply.
>> make a positive action plan.
>> have the confidence to re-apply if that’s what you want.
Pat yourself on the back for applying, creating and presenting your art portfolio. Also, for attending what must seem like quite a daunting task – the art college interview.
It might not seem like it now, but it is good experience. Some schools have this thing about ‘there are no losers – everyone’s a winner’. But that’s just not true and you’ll be finding this out for yourself right now. Life is competitive and no-one is going to hand anything to you on a plate just for trying. Therefore, this is just the beginning.
So in a way, my previous question of what are you going to do is quite important. What ARE you going to do? I didn’t get into art college first time around and I was gutted. Luckily I had very supportive parents and some great tutors who helped me pick up the pieces. This gave me the courage to apply again. After art college I went on to teach and this eBook was written and compiled by a tutor who has interviewed 100’s of students at Edinburgh College of Art.
This short 5 page eBook covers practical advice on what you should do if you’ve received that college rejection letter. Also how to go about applying to art college again. We recommend that to get the most out of this eBook that you download it as soon as you hear that you’ve not been accepted at art college.
