hi my name is evan mcgraw and i will be attending the cooper union for the advancement of science and art

my dad(who lives in anaheim,ca) phoned me on tuesday afternoon and said "i hope you're sitting down" and i've been kind of in disbelief since then.i'm in portland,ore(i live in vancouver,canada) and was at my friend's work and yelled "what?!" really loud and it's ridiculous because that morning i was freaking out about what i'm gonna do with my life,what i'm gonna do and where i'm gonna live for the next few months(i live in vancouver,but in a closet at my brother's/my old house),making sure all the schools i applied to had all my transcripts and materials,etc and then everything kinna became irrelevant.i totally was not expecting this.i applied last year regular decision and was rejected and didn't think i'd apply again,but then i ended up not being able to afford to go to any schools so i figured i'd apply again.
i might post my hometest later,but first i need to get a pro account on flickr so i can upload it.
oh,and since i'm staying with a friend here she had a 'lost' party every wednesday so we made/had a peanut butter mousse pie to celebrate.

aww,thank you for asking how i am!
and thanks for the congrats.
in terms of portfolio...well,i filled up an entire sketchbook with drawings and just about every page was something i put a lot of time and effort into that if it wasn't in a sketchbook would be a stand alone piece but was either too small or in a book,so i spent a lot of time doing that,and in terms of new portfolio work umm i should upload it because i documented it but i just did like 5 pretty big drawings that had water colours and one had lots of (my own...again) hair and they were a series,and were descending in size...and i built some bananas out of different papers,and made a book of dry point etching...umm a lot of drawing,though.i love drawing.

and yeah,they remembered me.well,some of them.i went to 2 open houses and at the second one after the lady looked through my stuff for 15 minutes and said nothing at all(i thought she hated my guts) she was like "i remember this from last year" about the series of people and cupcakes i did.and then she said she didn't know why i didn't get in because she really loved some of it,and then she said why she guessed that i didn't get in,which was porbably the reason i guess.
here's my flickr:
http://www.flickr.com/photos/11231765@N08/
i have some new drawings up in there somewhere,and last year's hometest.

Oh, I got it. I'm the same anoymous that congratted you above.
I heard someone else blagging getting in to arch - not art who was a reject from last year, and I hated that one's guts from last year and was ill wishing while wondering if I am the biggest dick.
But I am so happy for you, means I am nit total dick.
And I eat alot of baked goods knowing that's bad.
