    So yeah, it was pretty quick, but maybe because it was well before the deadline. Most people I know uploaded theirs just before this weekend and some will do it tomorrow, so perhaps there are more people to process right now and it might take bit longer.

    Thank you, you too! I applied for Fine Art what about you?
    Fine Art as well! I asked because i know that fashion courses are reeeeally popular so i wouldn't be surprised if it took that long but i guess for fine art is the same thing What was in your portfolio? I just put stuff from different projects in it but i've seen some portfolios on flickr and they all seem to be from one project and now i'm a bit insecure

    Monika, don't worry. No point looking at other people's stuff, because everyone is different. I also had stuff from different projects, because I haven't done any self initiated work for many months (just no time) and the tutors told me to keep the portfolio as recent as possible. The thing is, the projects forced me to take a certain route to respond to the briefs and it didn't look much like fine art at all, more illustration (collages mainly). I was rejected by Chelsea, but CSM strangely invited me in, so there's always hope that I can defend my working process during the interview.

    Yeah my friend is currently at CSM and she said their organisation is terrible so hopefully you'll hear back soon I did exactly the same, I just had odd bits from differnt projects, actually it was pretty unorganised! This was mine (https://www.flickr.com/photos/charlo...57650245783536)

    Yep. Also for painting at Camberwell, fine art at Slade, Chelsea and Falmouth.
    So far secured interviews at CSM, Camberwell and Falmouth. Should be done with them all by the 7th of March and then just wait for the decision. Bit stressful without a safe choice.

    I agree and thanks It's just the whole waiting, i can't focus on anything else while waiting for a respond from CSM I'm sure they will understand, in college i never had any project that i'd fully enjoy but finally i was just given 'self-directed' project so i started doing what i really enjoy but it's not enough to put in portfolio yet

    Same here. I'm itching to start painting studies, but need to write the brief first before Wednesday. Once I have enough work, it will be too late to include it :/

    I really like your portfolio! Can I ask how did you put the statement under your profile name on the page? Mine is added as a screenshot and it looks a bit odd
