December 5, 1933: Prohibition Ends
On this day in 1933, prohibition ended with the ratification of the 21st Amendment, which achieved the mandatory three-fourths majority of states’ approval with support from Utah, Pennsylvania, and Ohio.
Subsequently, the 18th Amendment was repealed after it was passed during the prohibition and temperance movements in the early 19th century. This activism initially stemmed from the concern about the effects of alcohol abuse.
Check out a video collection from Ken Burns’s Prohibition film to discover the rise and fall of the prohibition era.

Happy Repeal Day!
It all just depends if you were accepted to the program your first year. DAAP likes good grades and high GPAs. Im pretty sure the written statement also plays a role.
Oh, I guess I didn’t know Miami required a portfolio for the undergrad. I don’t know much about it aside from my experiences being the Grad Assistant to the undergrad graphics classes.
As far as UC when I started in 2008 I was in the studios right away as a freshman. Unless you get into the pre-architecture program in that case I believe second year is when you are accepted or denied. But things could have changed since then.
I would definitely apply to as many as you can, then you can weigh all the options and decide.
Best of luck!!
