  1. MFA 2017 All Art ADMISSIONS freak-out forum!!!!!!!!

    hi Yetti, What did you major in? I want to do it the right way. In the sense, it doesn't matter if I don't have an MFA as long as I get the clarity and skill set along with artistic maturity. What I'm doubting is whether art is what I want to go all out for, and whether I have it in me to be an artist and lacking is conviction. I wasn't sure about doing another BFA, rather doing another BA. But I've done two liberal arts degree from India, and pretty much explored everything there was to except for art history and lietrature (in depth) as opposed to the other subjects that I studied. Not sure if MFA is in the cards. It's a choice between a post bacc year long degree or 4 years of undergrad.

    Hey Vespertine, I like being in the creative space but I felt I wanted something more challenging to chew on. I don't think I'm ready for graduate school, I want to learn more before a level of independence is expected from my work. I was honestly more focused on getting the undergrad experience that apparently shapes you brilliantly, not seeing it as a route to another degree, but maybe give more clarity. But I already have 2 liberal arts degrees from India, so I was being advised that my tendency to explore will be limited because I have done that already. I was looking at post bacc programs, but some are saying that a year won't be enough, and it'll be a compromise.

    Hey, I never went to art school for my undergrad and was considering applying for an MFA this year. I was torn between doing a second undergrad this time in visual arts or applying for a masters? How did the BFA help you, was the learning mostly skill based or was it more to do with developing the thoughts that go in the process? I'm really confused.

    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

    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?

    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?

    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
