    Karisjns got a reaction from SocialKonstruct in MFA 2019 Freak Out Forum   
    Just had my interview with Portland State for the MFA in Studio Practice.
    It was scheduled for 15 minutes, but we talked for 30 minutes. Hopefully that's not a bad thing. 
    The questions they asked (for anyone with an interview soon and are wondering how it will go):
    Why do you want to go to graduate school? Why now?
    Are you open to experimenting and breaking out of your comfort zone with your work?
    Can you tell me about your current creative concepts?
    Where do you see your art progressing in the future?
    Are there any projects, books or films that have inspired you and your work?
    What contemporary artists are you interested right now?
    Why have you chosen to apply to this institution/program?
    Are you open to working on projects outside of the University?
    They also opened the floor to any questions that I had for them.
    Hope this is helpful!

    An interview means you're a finalist for admission. It's a great sign, most schools interview you when they are considering accepting you. Interviews are never a bad thing. 
    And many schools do suggest waiting a year or more between undergrad and grad school, but plenty of students get in to programs straight out of undergrad.

    My final results for MFA in Fine Arts:
    Colorado State: Rejected
    Columbus School of Art and Design: Accepted with TA ($3,000 stipend) and $10,000 scholarship.
    MassArt: Accepted with TA ($2,000 stipend) and $2,000 Dean's scholarship.
    Maine College of Art: Accepted with GA ($1,500 stipend) and $5,000 scholarship.
    Portland State: Accepted with GA ($1,800 stipend), $10,000 Laurel's scholarship and full tuition remission.
    SVA: Requested Interview, but I declined presuming I wouldn't get much funding. 
    University at Buffalo: Accepted with TA ($14,704 stipend), full tuition remission and the Mark Diamond Research Grant designated for my thesis exhibition.
    University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee: Rejected
    VCU: Rejected
    I think I'm set on Buffalo! I don't think I could ever come close to a better offer than that and I also connect very well with the painting faculty in their department. I'm excited and nervous for the big move! But I feel confident that Buffalo is the right decision for me. Upstate New York will be way different than Oklahoma, but here goes nothing! 
    Hope everyone is starting to relax after all the stress and setting sights on a plan! I'd love to hear where everyone is thinking of going! 😊

    I personally will take out a loan for school so that I can comfortably live while having sufficient supplies to work on my practice.
    But for me, I am extremely low income and could not have received a higher education without loans, so I really didn't have a choice.

    Okay y'all, I am absolutely confused/flabbergasted.
    I just got an interview invitation from SVA after hearing nothing from them since I turned in my application in January???
    They have already sent out waitlists, rejections and acceptances in my department (fine arts/painting) several weeks ago.
    This is weird and unexpected.

    Received a rejection notice the other day via UMass Amherst's online portal.

    All I've heard back from out of the 7 schools I applied to has been Yale, MECA, and UMass. Only acceptance was MECA, but their program is still unaffordable for me even with their scholarship and fin. aid package. Does anyone else think it's BS that these "TA positions" provide a stipend of only $3k per year?! 

    Anyway, I'm going to chalk it up as a loss for me.  I'll develop my work some more,  and perhaps apply again in a couple of years since I'm fresh out of undergrad; although I'm thinking graduate school may not be the path for me at this point. Congratulations and good luck to everyone accepted into their programs!
