  1. I'm actually in the exact same situation. This is why Columbia was never even on my radar and why many excellent students don't apply there. Being in my 40s, recently married, and with a fellow artist partner who is keen on starting a family ASAP, it's hard to take on that much debt. I often find I'm not impressed with the work of many of their graduates.

  5. I know it’s a bit early but I’m wondering if anyone has heard back about MFA directing interviews yet after attending IRTA? I sent a bunch of thank you emails and only got a reply from one school (Brooklyn College) and it was just a “we won’t be getting back to anyone for months” yet response.
