How are the summer courses? It looks like anyone can get in. Do the people who take them generally know what they're doing?

That is, unless that money went toward the good purpose of study (good compared with buying a 60+ year subscription to Italian Vogue instead, plus the few extra years of longevity to ensure I won't be leaving it in my will--see, why prolong things? ), which I'm sure is an option many of you have considered... Loans, that is, probably student loans even heftier than those within my junk mail pile.

I was wondering.. is it actually possible to get into CSM without a foundation course?
Probably irrelevant but surely for BA Fine Art at CSM you don't need a foundation because the Slade, the GSA and the Ruskin don't require one...

i've gone to interview yesterday for fashion BA (internetional students only)
and there was like 30 of us
it's quite weird that we all leave our portfolios out at 10
and were asked to come back at 2
when we got back, they asked us to get in as groups,
the first group got nothing...
the second group got the foundation offers,
the last...should be all in for BA

don't know whether it's a good news or bad one, that i've got in the second group...
it's so weird that they don't even talk to u or ask u any questions i think

I feel it would take me awhile to build a semi-solid/diverse portfolio. Oh well, there's no time like the present to begin... Hypothetically speaking, of course

yeah you have to choose 3 places you'd wanna stay..they'll try to put you on your first choice, if it's full, on the 2nd, etc... it all depends on how early you applied for the accomodation
