  1. Thank you Artsy2017! 67 pages?
  2. Thank you Gwhar1! I did look up Post-Bacc programs, but you rightly guessed it's very costly. I can't afford both, an MFA and a post bacc. Your points have been very helpful
  3. Thank you Vespertine! I am trying to go through as much student work I can to assess whether or not I should apply. Apart from reading up on reviews, I haven't been able to find any essays that might help me convey the turmoil in my statement of purpose. How does one even write an SOP? Would you recommend interning with artists, or galleries etc?
  4. Thank you for taking the time to write back! I know this will sound incredibly gloomy, but seeing the quality of work people on this forum have done in order to get admitted into an MFA, I don't think I have it in me or stand a chance and I'm literally in tears. I really want to make this work, but I cannot think of practical ways of making up for the lack of a BFA. Will interning with people help, or is that going to be a waste of time?
  5. Hi! I'm 22 years old and I wanted to apply for an MFA to the US. I don't have a Bachelors in Fine Art, but I've learnt it informally. I'm scared as hell, and I don't even know if applying would just be a colossal waste of money and time or if I stand a chance. I studied Political Science and History, and then did a fellowship for a year. I'd appreciate any help from you guys. And all the best to all of you awaiting decisions xx
