A poorly organized and non artistic student may not find this school ideal. Its workload is heavy and rigorous and focuses mainly on arts and business aspects for the work environment.

A person studying to be a doctor - there isn't a course for that field but everyone else is highly encouraged and recommended to apply . The school offers a variety of majors within the art,entertainment, fashion and beauty industry that can't compare to any other school.


If you are homophobic in any way this school is NOT the place for you. Most of the male students are gay and if being around people who are gay makes you uncomfortable this isn't the place for you.

Someone who is looking for the typical/ traditional college experience! There are no football games or greek life, etc....


I had a classmate who performed terribly in classes, because he didn't care about the class work. He told one of our professors that the reason for his poor performance was because he 'just didn't find the assignments interesting'. If you don't find assignments that teach you about design you probably shouldn't go to this school. If you aren't willing to put in the work don't waste the professors' time.


Anybody who is not sure about their future, and do not see themselves somewhere making a difference in the world competing with some of the top competitors in his or her related industry should not attend this school.
