Stanford10052 years0bencoebigelow@gmail.comProgram comes with stipend with healthcare in addition to free tuition. stipend was enough to live on, about 2k a month in 2013. Giant studios, independt study model program. GRE was required since 2013. You have to submit scores, but scores dont count whatsoever. I clicked "next" on every question and was accepted. This place is the deal of the century, but isnt going to get you a NYC gallery right away, if thats your persuasion.36
