We had a portfolio day in my first year of art school and in my class of like 12 people half of them had mostly middle school level work featuring mostly anime and furry drawings in their portfolio, I'm not joking. Before I entered art school an ex-friend once said, "Getting into art school is easy, they literally accept ANYONE." Although I was skeptical when he said this, I was shocked at how true it was when we had that portfolio day in class. Keep in mind, this wasn't one of those diploma factory art schools you have seen advertised on TV. This was an accredited 4 year art school in my city and is well known because Walt Disney took classes there Saturdays as a kid. And to be honest, I was shocked when my portfolio was accepted and I got accepted into the school (because it mainly contained mediocre nude life drawings and one really good self portrait.) Unfortunately, today I think most art schools will accept anybody with a portfolio no matter how bad it is because they are such money grabbing greedy bastards.
