I, Max Carleton, writer/illustrator of the comic “magick?”, have been accepted to five colleges.

That's right! Drew University, Alfred, Kutztown, Tufts, and SMFA have all sent me the big envelope.

I know you guys prolly don't care that much, but it's a rather big deal to me, so I thought I'd let you know.

Congratulations and good luck!

I myself just got accepted into the uni I applied for, going in September.
Hey buddy, you should be a Russian Cosmonaut, and here's why.

Congrats! I got accepted to the two colleges I applied for Art Institute of Pittsburgh and Penn State. Off to Penn State I go, starting in July!

It is a big deal. I can't express the amount of relief I felt when I got the envelope from Penn State. Now your only problem is deciding where to go. O_o good luck.

Heh, I was told I was accepted right in the interview, so I didn't have to deal with the panic or stress of waiting for the reply. Had to put up with the rest of it though.

What courses you going for? I chose only one, animation. Because that's all I wanted to do.

I only applied to one college. For some reason at the age of 18 I was enough of a pompus bastard to assume I would get in no problem. Fortunatly I was right, but in retrospect I wouldn't recomend the strategy.

Depending on where I go, either some form of art (most likely animation) or Psychology.

Art or Psychology? They seem quite far apart. I could never really get used to having two drastically different subjects. I am jealous. You git.

i'd definately choose the psychology, than you can feed the world BS about your art and make tuns of money. Cant ask better than that. Well done!

It comes from having two drastically different parents. My mom is really literally and pretty verbal, while my dad is dyslexic, but a really good artist. (If you don't believe me, check out his website. http://www.richardcarleton.com/)

The fun part of it is, I can't spell that well and I've just started not entirely sucking at art…

My mother is more of the ‘encourage whatever the hell it is I’m doing' type, which is both good and bad.

I must have changed my mind about what I wanted to do dozens of times, when I was younger I was really good at things like maths and science, but as I got older I started becoming more interested in art, and then animation when I discovered at art wasn't a suitable creative outlet for me. My drawings still incredibly bad, but I started late.

Did your dad really draw those? Bloody hell, they look like photographs.

Yeah. They're prints, which means that he draws them backwards on copper before transfering them to paper. I guess I have good art genes.

Not that you'd know it from looking at my comic. (http://www.drunkduck.com/magick/index.php
if you're curious.)

Going to the University of Pittsburgh this fall (er, summer actually, considering how classes start in late August…)!

I was also going to apply to Drew, but I got accepted to Pitt before I sent the application out, and I wanna go there :O

Hmm, so, Tufts is letting people know by now? One of my best friends and his girlfriend want to go there, but they haven't heard yet…

Dang, copper plate etchings? That's old school stuff right there. Really cool.

I actually just got accepted into college today….

But there's kind of a joke about that college…that the main requirement for admission is that you have a pulse. :/

But the living conditions are jim-dandy!
