If I hear of any cool and exciting news as well, I will also post it here. Thanks.

I heard that they are doing away with their transportation design. Do you know why?
I'm actually trying to get into the junior level there.
I'm starting to run out of time and haven't been able to finish my portfolio for presentation due to work and other responsibilities.
The trans program is an interesting story. They do not want to get rid of the trans program, but they are having problems filling a spot to replace a good teacher that has been trying to retire for quite some time now. Until they find the replacement, they are disadvantaged to provide a learning experience comparable to other trans programs or expanding enrollment. Nevertheless, BYU has excellent fascilities and tons of contacts in industry (Honda, GM, Ford, etc..) and an excellent program all in all, but as far as trans goes, students have to take a lot of personal initiative in order to excell.
If you want the department head for BYU's ID program, PM me and I will give it to you. You need to get your portfolio in as soon as possible or at least start a dialog with the department head to see what you need to do.

Will you be applying for the professional level?
If by professional level you mean masters, no. I am two semesters away from having my BS in nursing, and have been working as a nurse for several years, but I am ready for a change. I figure I will have at least three more years of school, but it will save me a lifetime of misery.

If you talk to the department head, he will be able to assess your ability to do this. Best of luck to you!

I would say that you want to include some of the following:
1. Something that shows that you can create good compositions (using the law of thirds, cropping, the grid system, etc)
2. Things that show that you thinkin terms of volume and space as apposed to just 2D. For example, architectural drawings or sample products that you have done on your own iniciative.
3. (Bonus Points Here) If you can show that you can draw things accurately in perspective, especially elypses, then you can go a long way.
4. Show that you understand basic color theory (like which colors go better with other colors)
5. Show that you understand the needs of potential end users of products. (For example, designing a solution to a problem that one of your friends or family might have)
Its not like they will have a checklist out when they look over the portfolios, and its not like all of these are prerequisites, but if you can include some or all of these ideas, then you will be leaps and bounds ahead of the game. And BYU ID will only get more and more competative.
If you have any questions regarding any of these points, just ask!
