Senior admissions counselor
Each year we carefully select and admit 100 talented students. Our application, much like our program, is rigorous.
We hope that if you do embark on our application, you will learn a lot - not only about yourself, but also where you see your future.
How do I apply?
After you request an application, you'll receive an email that includes:
- Step-by-step instructions on how to apply
- General program requirements
- Track-specific requirements
Only apply to ONE of the five tracks: art direction, copywriting, creative brand management, experience design or strategy. Check out details about each one on our program page. You can also attend one of our information sessions held throughout the school year.
- 10-12 percent international
- 20-24 percent minority
- Average age: 25
Some of our students are married. Some have kids. About 70 percent have at least one year of post-college work experience — anything from working at a college bookstore to several years of agency experience.
