Haha I'm scared. The rep from MICA, who I think is the counselor for incoming freshies, that came to my school liked my portfolio and accepted it, but when I went to NPD, the guy I got for my intended major didn't really say anything about my portfolio getting approved, what pieces were the strongest in terms of composition, color, line, form, etc. He only said I had a "strong start". So now I'm really nervous because I don't know who's opinion weighs in more
hm Ive heard the strong start term before, Im never sure what it means, I think it means you have a good beginning for your college art life, so dont worry too much about it, I too am sitting here just waiting for the pieces to fall together, but im sure you will do great!
If your portfolio is "accepted" it generally means you'll be able to get into the school so long as you meet their other admissions requirements (which can usually be found on their website). Of course, you'll still likely have to submit your portfolio to the school officially in order for them to "officially" say you've been accepted. But all in all it sounds like a good thing!

I was going to but they had other interviews so I had to ask a guy from a school I didn't get an interview from since he was the only one free. He said for his school it meant your portfolio would be accepted right on the spot, no troubles, but it meant different things for different schools. By the time I went back to them they had already finished the interviews and left my school.
I'll probably ask them on NPD but the lines are ridiculous and I could hold up someone showing the school their portfolio when I already had my chance.
I advise looking up the school's website, they should have an admissions number you can call for information, or an e-mail you can contact. That way you aren't interfering with any interviews or anything.
