I'm thinking of applying to PNCA, mainly becuase I love the location of Portland. I am concerned about a couple things, and would like your opinions.
The college seems really small, does it ever feel that way?
Not much selection of majors, but how are the fine arts at PNCA? Are people mainly fine artist of photographers/graphic design, etc.?
Also, how hard are admissions? Is it mainly the portfolio, or grades?

Nervousbride, you are the maintainer now. (Unless you don't want to be, in which case...someone else step up.)

Goodbye everyone, enjoy your time at pnca!

:( [19 Aug 2006|11:48pm]

[ mood | disappointed ]

couldn't get enough financial aid to go this fall! I had to call financial aid a few days ago to tell them i need to defer enrollment. I hope to go back next fall :/ i'm soooo disappointed :( they suggested i take some courses at pcc or another community college to get enough credits to transfer in as a junior which will give me more financial aid (I've already been through 2 years of art school back in NY and have an associates but had to transfer in as a sophomore because not all of my credits could be transfered).

sad times!

I recently moved to Portland (three months ago) and managed to find an apartment, a job and apply to school. I was just accepted three days ago. I amazingly registered and got all my classes etc. I'm attending for illustration.

Feel free to add me, I'll accept anyone, and if anyone wants, I have a website at:


Just go there and click on my name. (Terry)

Hey listen dudes, I'm transferring out of PNCA so I need to leave my community maintainer throne to someone else (I believe nervousbride has volunteered)... unfortunately I have no idea how to do this. Anyone know?

I realize there's like no one in here, but that's okay. Haha. [22 Jul 2006|05:35pm]

I know it's a bit early, but I am working on compiling a portfolio to send in and I am just sknfkdnfkvndf. I will be applying for Fall '07 and, well, I guess you could say this is my first choice school. I'm not entirely sure what it is about PNCA, but I really feel like I need to be there. Anyways, I will be applying for Communication Design, and I was just wondering if you guys had any tips for things to include in the portfolio to increase my chances of getting in. There aren't any portfolio days near me at all, so I'm out of luck with that. :(

Also - did you submit your SAT scores? Does it make any difference whether I do or not?

Thanks in advance!

apartments and such [12 Apr 2006|02:41am]

hi, so i was wondering.. to people who actually go to PNCA.
do you know how hard it is to get an apartment (with another person to live with as well) in downtown/NW, northern SW areas? basically anywhere within a bike-ride distance to the school (1 mile or so).

Is anyone going to be around tommorrow (Saturday) who wants to pick me up at the airport around 11 or a little after? I live around 65th and Woodstock, so it's not too long of a drive. I can give you like $20 for your effort/gas. I can't take the MAX because I'd have to take like three buses in order to get close enough to my house, and I'm going to have more luggage than can be comfortably handled by a girl of my size anyway. I can take a cab if I have to, but it's almost $40 for a ten minute drive (including the tip) and I'm broke so I'd rather not if I can help it, so I thought I'd ask. I'll be forever indebted to you (and if you ever need a ride somewhere, I'll owe you.)

erm... i don't live in portland, but i AM planning on transferring to PNCA in the fall.

i'm working super hard on gtting stuff together to have as a portfolio. i'm just uber picky about what to include, you know? i want stuff to be impressive/noteworthy. paranoia, much? *sigh*

but yeah. i love how there's almost no one in this community. that rocks.

anyone else planning on tranferring in the fall of '06?

Some of you may be signed up for PNCA's mailing list and got something in the mail dealing with the "National Portfolio Day". The only reason I'm even bothering to mention this is because I just got one myself in the mail. But I'm bummed out that I can't go. =( It's pretty cool, though, that potential students are given this opportunity.

Hopefully, if I'm out of here and finally living in Portland, then I'll be able to attend one of these. That would be teh awesome.

Now, if any of you happen to notice where I currently reside, you're probably wondering, "Why the hell is this girl joining a community that's for a college all the way across the US?" Yeah. It's kind of odd. But my mom and I have been planning to move out to Portland within the next year or two years, depending on the circumstances and I've been interested in PNCA for about two years now. So I'm really hoping I'll get a chance to apply and get accepted there!

I'm still a young'n, so I really shouldn't be thinking about college right at this moment, but it's still nice to make plans for the future, ya know?

Anyhoo, I was just reading the very last entry posted and I was surprised to find that not a lot of people apply to PNCA (?). I think that's crazy because, from everything I've read about it, it seems like an amazing art school.

Welp, I'm done. Until next time, take care everyone!

I know it's a little ways off still, but the sooner planned the better:

Is there anyone who plans to be around over Christmas break who might like to take care of two darling little rats for me? They're cute, they're hilarious, they're friendly...they do tricks on the ceiling of their cage (well, one of them does... the other tries and fails.)
I'll cover bedding and food and maybe a little extra so you can buy yourself a little somethin' somethin' for Christmas. The alternative would be me buying a travel cage for them, lugging them through ten shaky hours of travel each way (which means they'll crap all over the place, they hate being moved around like that), having to buy a new cage when I get home just for the month, and my dog and sisters scaring the shit out of them. I can do it if I have to, but if someone else is going to be around who wants some rodent company, that would probably be better. They're fun, you'll like them.

(They're both females, by the way... and to the best of my knowledge they get along swimmingly with other rats.)
