I'm aware that it's nearly impossible, but some people manage to do it.
What exactly are they looking for in an applicant?
What types of students/portfolios are admitted? Or is there even a 'type'?
I've combed through countless threads and viewed all of the accepted portfolios I could find. The majority seem to come off as very academic/theory based and portfolios sees to be heavy on diagrams and text, and less so on 'design'
I know these are vast generalizations, but I'm wondering if any of you (who may be better informed) could comment on their accuracy or lack thereof?
I'm coming from an industrial design background (furniture) and trying to figure out how to present myself and my work for next year. I can't help but feel that I'm not exactly their type based on what I've seen so far.
Q: How would I get into Princeton?
A: In my dreams.
Seriously, not my cup of tea, but I would imagine that a venerated undergraduate school, an undergraduate major they consider intellectual, and a slick portfolio, none of which I had, would do the trick. Good luck.
If you have to ask, you ain't going to make it. Those who do, don't spend time browsing forums, obsessing over HOW to get in.
There's a difference between research and frivolous obsession.
Can you please point us to any accepted portfolios visible online.
be smart and be an individual.
harvard's for the ass kissers and conformists.
yale sounds cool though.
ass kissers and conformists? Someone's got a chip on his shoulder...
naw, I keep my chips in a bag for snacking. No dirt on these shoulders baby.
Nice try though.
