  1. I eventually decided to go with RCA xD, since I like the location more. I didn’t email any of the alumnus in the same program yet, planning to find one to ask about the overall atmosphere at school and such. Thanks for your advices!
  2. Thank you xDD! And Pratt as well actually lol, so far only Parsons haven’t respond to me. How’s everything going for you? I’ve seen you’ve received two rejections so far, sorry to hear that , I think it is their lost to not accept such a supportive and cheering student..
  3. I'm tempting xD, bc I also got accepted to RCA painting. I know not much about these two programs, I can't fly there to have first hand experience, and I have limited resources online 😕
  4. I've been accepted to their painting program in March 12, hope the information helps ;D
  5. DuDE WhAt, I'm about to take their interview in Feb 18, I was quite confidence but now I don't know anything anymore xDDDDD''. Did they say any details of how the faculties questioned their works or their personality? And may I know which program they interviewed for?
  6. May I know how was the interviews went for them? I'm curious now because krvers said they can be arrogant... 😕 I'm an international student so I do feel anxious about my ability to express in English.
  7. One of my professors didn't reply for about 20 days, so I changed him to another professor, maybe you can do the same. Remember to tell the professor and the school though
  8. Congrats on the interview! I see you had an interview with RCA painting, may I ask which questions did they ask during the interview?
  9. rejected by SAIC via mail, the mail was sent by Feb 28, but I got the mail today, lol
  10. rejected by MICA illustration practice (MFA) anyone know how what to write to ask them what I can improve possibly in my next application?
  11. rejected by Boston U studio painting program, says they don't have enough seats for all the qualified applicants. received email today.
  12. congratulations!! They are both nice schools, I applied them as well, but I haven't receive any messages yet. May I ask how did SVA and SAIC contacted you? If it was through email, is it the same email address that they send random program ads?
  13. I applied to four schools for drawing and painting this year and so far my email has been silence from the programs I've applied. I saw a few people got interviews from SAIC painting a month ago, but I got non. Does the date I submitted my application matters regarding early or late I receive the result? I submitted my application near the deadline, fortunately in time. For people who received direct emails from school, do they send the email through the same account that they use to send ads or a different account? I'm wondering whether or not I blocked their ads or not, and I certainly don't want to block any information regarding my application, lol.
  14. these thread is so useful I'm pinning it down. Do you have any advice on how to write the first email to POIs? I have no idea what should I ask and what not..
  15. sorry for the late reply and thank you for the answer!! I tried your method, and the other user's, who's comment appears to be deleted... anyway it is quite right, the adcoms are not here to know what every little thing you do in your life, they just want to know why are you applying to the program anyway.
  16. I studied as a Visual Art student during my undergrad, and focused mostly on fine arts, but now I'd like to attend for MFA in illustration, which is not so related in fine arts. Do I talk about it when I mention my undergrad major, or should I add some sentences briefly to inform the viewers why I changed interests? and is it ok to say I'm interested in both and want to give up on neither?
  17. Hello, yes I'm considering SAIC as well! Do you have insights about this school? I'm pretty much reaching out for every bit of information I can get.
  18. Anyone here applied to SVA MFA illustration? I really like the courses they offer, but there is ridiculously little information I can get from the internet, and all the reviews about this school are not as nice as I expect-- since they have a relatively expensive tuition I expected more. SVA was my first choice but now I'm not sure. Then I considered Syracuse, but little information as well... Do I cold mail to the students that's in these schools? I'm mainly looking for illustration programs near NY but Fine Art programs that includes drawing and painting are good as well if I end up with no illustration programs to choose. Usually I include Psychological concepts in my drawings, and do not want to only draw in traditional way, so traditional school are off limits. I got a bachelor degree in Visual Art, and I'd like to be more professional in whatever I'm working on.
  19. yes thank you for the reply! some program I look into are based on traditional materials, like the one Syracuse offers, and SVA. Schools in which area are you interested on the most?
  20. Hello every body! Newbie here, I'm freshly graduated from university which my major is Visual Art, the long of learning more then I have taught has been bothering me for approximately 2 years. Plus Visual Art is not technically a specific enough category to stop at in my career, so I figured I'd like to apply to the illustration graduate programs on fall 2018. But here comes the question, I don't have any information for illustration programs besides the school websites and other internet stuff, I don't know what kind of portfolio to submit, I have oil/ acrylic/ digital painting/ watercolor/ charcoal, etc, but which kind of stuff I'd want to be in my portfolio in order to proof my skills?. What is the ratio of still life and actual illustration? My mind is full of questions that needed to be answered. So anyone is on the same boat or have been through all these can give me some advices/ struggle with me ? by the way, the schools I've came up so far are SVA/Pratt/Parson, is there any other great illustration programs around or inside NYC?, I've been heard a little about the illustration as visual essay graduate program in SVA. Do they actually that good? I wish I could go and check it out myself, but I live on the other side of the earth which is kind of inconvenient ; ;
