  1. I am currently looking at Cal State Sacramento's MA in Studio Art, but I may even put applying for a MA off for years and get remarried first?

  2. I tell people to drive around Lane County, OR, and do not even drive through it. I graduated from the U of O in 2017 late summer. I had turned in something like 58 police complaints in living there for 2.5 years. PSU is awesome, and I'd rather have finished my degree there if I had enough funding, but only 1/3 of my degree is from PSU. Just don't live in the dorms, there is a drug dealer on each floor and people get killed outside of Montgomery Hall. Look up police reports online for the last 2 years.

    I went to tour a certain school's studios and they were all joint. This means partitions, not real walls that go to the ceiling to separate the rooms. So the ink, and oil, and other very toxic chemicals get to mix and everyone gets to breath them all together. Do studios matter to you? The health of your lungs? Wouldn't you be concerned that you may develop cancer of the lungs at some point by or after graduation after all of that hard work? I'm going to ask for accommodations and work in a different bld. or I may not be able to attend if they accept me. It's my only reasonable choice given I
  4. I spent 6 years getting my first BA, I skipped a year in the middle to get residency back in my old state so I could go to that U. I don't even think of how the schools would focus on this. They don't really know if you had office of accessability support and took your classes slower? For all they know you had a baby or your mom may have died. Anything could have slowed you down even just temporarily.
  5. I decided this week that going to school and teaching or being an asst. in a school at the same time will not work for me. So I must wait and apply to a school when the situation allows that and I live elsewhere since my favored school is in Las Vegas and I'm still in OR. I must get in state residence in another state or my second favorite state(CA or AZ)? But I had already started an ap. and was just about done with it. And I sent the request for a recommendation a second time, since I had asked 4 years ago after only 6 mos in undergrad. studies(post ba), and post-8 years as a stock
  6. For a grad art program? I'm having the hardest time figuring out if I can apply anywhere for scholarships/grants for artist attending grad MFA programs? All of the so called organized websites to join and search from, give me SCAM like info. or nothing at all. How about ADHD? I'm Norwegian, Danish? I was born in MN? Over 45?
  7. I have almost always felt on the outside, with very few acquaintances in college at all! I consider myself 40% extrovert, 60% introvert.
  8. I had a ton of issues trying to get dental work done. It's still not done. The weather is FREEZING in oregon today. I really think I'm going to watch tv online all evening and go to sleep as soon as I can. I looked up astrology online and the date and it says, "Winter Solstice" USA today printed, "https://www.usatoday.com/story/tech/nation-now/2017/12/20/winter-solstice-worst-day-2017-astrologers/970249001/ Astrologist calls it Worst day of the year, 2017!
  9. Sigh, someone got an acceptance...........................ahhhhhhh sounds nice!
  10. Ug., kind of depressing. How would I look these things up exactly?
  11. I'm not sure how to get through. I want just 1 application to get successfully turned in. But finances do not exist. I'm simultaneously filing for SSI of all things. Maybe I cannot apply.
  12. I am an Artist. And I got through the second BA in late Aug. No PH. D., MFA is where I'm headed.
  13. Ok so 1 school in the state I wish to attend in states, "provide 3 Letters of Recommendation" and the other, "provide 3 professional letters of recommendation." Ok, I'm an artist, and this is about art. Am I really expected to have 3 professional letters from employers/art galleries, etc... for my art? I'm a stock artist, most of my art is sold self employed through websites. I cannot get professional web site mgr.s to give me recommendations. I really want to be accepted at this second school, but I'm uncertain they will accept professors letters of recommendations at all?
  14. I am confused. If there is no upload location for the letter of intent that is required for a school, do I include/attach it to my curriculum vitae pdf? It's U of Nev.
  15. Is there a federal page that explains this code for a grad work study program, #2326? I don't see any kind of reference to it through the U of Nev school, but there is one at Cal St. Sac.
