You got it in the bag man. I suggest you apply somewhere better, like an art school because it seems that you have an awsome portfolio and that you are a really hardworking person. If you bust your ass and go to an art school, you’ll have tons of career options.
If you want to get into NYU you have no problem.
But know that it’s not the only school out there, I tried to major in fine art at a university, it sucked. Now, NYU is a much better school than the university i went to for a year, but I got into the Art Institute of Chicago, and it was much better.
maybe even UCLA?
