There's something amazing here.
For most art colleges...
You actually don't have to be that talented. They're going to retrain you anyways, they just reward you for having good skill and they want to know your atleast on not elementary level.
@_X Forgot that was only your backup. My brain is always stuck in visual arts, I was thinking about talking to my high school art class a lot today.
Well I attend a college that's pretty far away from me. I do get homesick but I'm surprised at how well off I can be on my own without a car. Even if I'm not "on my own", but I'm pretty close to it.
They think that they can fast-forward through the boring parts and then get into life and it'll be awesome, without realizing the skills you learn in your boring parts...ya know...ACTUALLY come back up again and you need to those skills you learned, or even skills you haven't learned and they expect you to figure it out.
