  1. I believe having diversity for diversity sake is the wrong approach. Each school seems to foster a different type of working environment, supporting different types of communities, and varying practices. In my opinion a school should continue to attract the most interesting artists, and accept these artists based on work, rather than background. One would think any engaged artist in the current climate has some consideration of these issues, regardless of their own background. Of course there is more than enough writing on the relationship between art and politics, and more than enough opinions as well I am sure being the only black student in an MFA program can be strange, and bring unnecessary attention, but that is also your strength! At the end of the day, research these MFA programs heavily!
  2. I believe you probably received my offer from Tyler that I had turned down. I don't know too much about Berkeley, but Tyler is a great school. It was a hard decision to turn them down, Professor Glahn was very kind and knows his stuff. I do think Tyler fits a certain type of painter though, so if you would like to message me to show or talk about your work I could give you more feedback... A fullride is very hard to turn down..Tyler is pretty costly tbh, you could also inquire about more financial aid. Let me know! Happy to continue this conversation.
  3. I have accepted a position at Bard for the painting discipline. This means a spot will open up at Tyler. I hope someone receives good news soon.
  4. Having a tough time deciding between Bard and Tyler. Tyler is offering more money, but Bard is..well Bard. I know I could make it work whichever program I choose, however a little background is I have not been living in New York so Bard might be a bit difficult leaving the 2 month residency to find a job and space to live/work right after. My undergrad professor recently told me she heard there was discontentment within Tyler. I want to study under Dona Nelson, she teaches at both Bard and Tyler. Thoughts on both programs? (painting)
  5. I was notified yesterday via. email. (I guess it's a great (stressful) problem, yes!)
  6. Anyone have personal opinions/experience regarding Tyler's MFA Painting program? I was accepted, however I am on the waitlist for another program and would like to have more time incase I am admitted before I make a decision. Tyler is asking for a decision by March 23rd, and I've been told the waitlist for this program may go on until the end of April.
  7. Waitlisted @ Bard as well (painting) hoping to get an offer
  8. Damn, that's unfortunate, how often does that happen? I'm lucky to have a friend drive me up from Philly. Are you by chance interviewing for painting?
  9. Welp, that concludes my notifications. Rejected from Yale and Rutgers Interviewing at Tyler and Bard
  10. I didn't apply to a "safety school" simply for this reason of "settling." I think it only adds toward self-doubt, but we all have different goals. If your goal is to just get into a school I think it's a great idea to have a safety school, however, if you want something very specific out of graduate study I think it's better to eliminate the idea of a safety school. Looking back on this process of applying, I've learned a lot. The schools I set out on applying during the beginning of the process has drastically changed, and even now I wished I had applied to other schools vs. the ones I did apply to. I think it just goes to show how much time/experience we should accumulate before pursuing an MFA.
  11. Just upon first impressions and some of the research I've done with schools outside of the U.S., Glasgow seems to be a much more interesting school. As far as painters go, I've heard RCA has very small studios. Of course funding rules over all. Congratulations though, not a bad situation to be in. Rejected from Yale as well (:

    Likewise, congratulations to everyone making the next step toward interviews. Would love to see work from painting applicants.
  13. Finally submitted my last application. In the end I feel the whole process of applying has negatively affected me in a way I'm not even sure how lol. Let's see how this all turns out
