NVCC doesn't "carry over" applicants from one year to the next, so if for some reason you don't get in you just reapply the following year. Admissions are based solely on a first-come, first-in basis, provided all prerequisites are met. Don't know when you're planning on starting, but the application deadline for fall admission has passed (applications are accepted from Aug 31 to mid April). You may want to consider going to an informational session asap (I believe there's one this afternoon, as a matter of fact) just so that you can get all your ducks in a row and get your portfolio in early. Any questions just feel free to PM me.
