There is no way to calculate this: our admissions team contacts everyone who inquires, and through conversation, tours and information sessions we are able to redirect a number of possible applicants for whom we would not be a good fit. MTM is demanding, although suppotive, environment that requires passion, grit, professionalism.
We offer an amazingly good first year program that teaches basic traditional fine art skills, and are therefore able to accept motivated individuals who show promise through portfolio, essay, character reference and personal interview. MTM is small enough so that we know every student. It is a demanding course of study and students are graded on professionalism as well as course content.
We do not accept anyone unless we have the conviction that they are motivated, and that if they work hard, and we work hard, they will be successful. We have a Preferred Application option, giving priority to applicants for whom we are first choice.

Portfolio development is part of curriculum, and includes everything from preparing a website, to mock interviews, and a final interview with an industry professional. We host an "Industry Evening" attended by recruiters from many companies.
