    Hey man, I just wanted to let you know that a large part of being an artist is not thinking you're god's gift to art. I understand that you're irritated that you didn't get in, but you shouldn't look to blame the university for your shortcomings - use it as a learning experience and improve. Lots of love, me.
    Hey,

    I don't think of myself as the best, to any extent. I am actually chosing the path of architecture cuz I'm not even in the best 5 art students in my class - I'm leaving fine art to them. I don't consider myself an artist neither - I may will after completing an art degree, or maybe not even then.

    My hard feelings for the uni come from my interview experience, where I - and a few others, reportedly - have been complimented on my portfolio and got asked why I haven't applied for fine art instead. I told them my answer on why I think arch is the path for me blabla... and then they said 'well, ok then, but your portfolio is so strong' and they even separately complimented my work in ceramics.

    So my opinion, that the feedback I recieved was a uniform rubbish, is based on my experience and not my ego.

    I'm not aware of the quality of your work, but I know for a fact that UCL architecture dept are completely chaotic. So I would take anything they say with a massive pinch of salt.... This may be particularly acute this year, on account of their moving pains, but one senses that chaos is king at UCL!!!
