  1. Got into Columbia! @Poodle-Doodle, I know you decided to go to SAIC due to the awesome full-merit scholarship you got (congrats!) but regarding Columbia, did they offer you any sort of aid?
  2. Also waitlisted at Columbia in New Genres...
  3. Wow, congrats! UCI is pretty nice as well.
  4. Thank you! Good luck with NYU!
  5. Sorry for the news... Had you interviewed for Columbia? Called them today and they said they would send responses by the end of this week or early next week.
  6. UCLA is a dream
  7. do you call the people teaching Professors, Tutors, Teachers, what is the right way to say it?
  8. Thank you!!! Eyerolling is my thang. Lol And: Did UCLA offered you any grant?
  9. Poodle Doodle, wow after wow!! Congrats!! Have you decided where you are going to go?
  10. Hey Gwhart1, I just mentioned Glasgow as a good school because I know people who went there and really liked it. But I'm sure Purchase is also nice! Wish you the best! For everyone else, thank you for these thoughts around the MFA itself, super interesting!
  11. Hey! I can quite relate to this self-care period after applications before getting back to the studio. Sorry for the no-nos. It sucks, but it has been a tough last year. From your old posts I can see we agree when it comes to politics. So yes, tough times, we need to make sure we can build a good mental space where art can exist. I have also been spending more time walking outside, reading books, going away from the hard ambition mode needed in order to keep going during the applications. The application process is expensive so I had to work more on my bread jobs to get money flow. Wish you a good year and hope you get nice residencies meanwhile! Also, if you could imagine yourself abroad, perhaps apply in Europe? There are some posts the last few pages with a bunch of schools that are still taking applicants, most of them don't have application fees so it is manageable to do it just to see if it works. Not a bad time to be abroad anyway. Take care!
  12. Well balanced acceptance/rejection news. Congratulations with Yale!!!!
  13. But that is great that you even got all these interviews if you are still in Undergrad! Waiting won't be bad at all, it will only make your work stronger. Hope Glasgow or Purchase will bring you good news anyway. Always nice with some confirmations. And Glasgow is such a great school! I don't know why UCLA is taking so long to distribute the rejections. I saw that Poodle Doodle got his acceptance a couple of weeks ago so in one hand I can imagine now they are sending rejections and at best waitlisted? If anyone has been accepted to UCLA, please share it here? So nervous here.
  14. Sorry to hear it. :(( These applications are such an intense process on dealing with self-doubt, don't put your self low for a rejection. It is like someone said in this thread, the admissions have a clear idea of the profiles they want for a class, which does mean that a lot of great artists can be rejected for the sake of group dynamic. Regarding the letter, did it arrive today? I called them yesterday and they said results would come until wednesday next week the latest. And it would be notified by email. So I'm confused now that you got it by letter?
  15. Congrats, totally deserved it!!!
