  1. Hello all I'm writing you as a second year of the UPENN MFA program. As you know, universities have begun moving classes into the online format. We're due to graduate in May and our thesis, the shows we have planned, and all of our work have come to a halt. We were asked to vacate our studios and not to return to campus for the rest of the semester. I'm reaching out to ask what other MFA programs around the country are doing. -how does your program plan to move your education forward -how does your program plan to compensate you for time and education lost -what demands ar
  2. they're also practically crumbling, the current students are suing the school.
  3. tbh post bacc is for people who need help getting into a mfa program or because people don't want mfa programs. i did the ssp at vcu to help prepare for an mfa but it was expensive to move to a whole new city for a short period of time (as well as the residency was expensive). canbrook is a great school, and if you're not happy with their program either do the post bacc to prepare for a more competitive program, do the post bacc and wait on the mfa, or accept neither and reply to programs next year.
  4. just my two cents, i don't think the price tag as well as the institutional and physical crumbling of the school is worth 120k in debt even if you peer group are super accomplished. even if you come out of school very 'successful'... you can get a good deal from VERY good schools with a smaller price tag
  5. thanks so much!!! sent an email about applying and getting some information but i haven't gotten any reply so! idk. i also spelled fulbright wrong so RIP for me
  6. tbh i think these programs are similar, if there's no one professor, student, facility, or location that's pulling you I would let the price tag decide.
  7. columbia is a great program but hunter is also great and less expensive. my goal with my mfa was to graduate debt free. it's great to go to an ivy league school but is 130,000$ of debt worth it? i'm not sure.

    Chicago vs NY

    i live in ny currently and it's not for me (i'm moving to philly for my mfa) i would seriously consider chicago, i think it's a better environment for emerging artists and ny is better for mid to late career artists who can afford a good studio practice and all. chicago is cheaper, has tons of accessible residencies.... best of luck
  9. hey thanks so much for this! is there any way I could get the application fee waived? would be a tremendous help.
  10. oh yes i would never ever say "i'm applying just to go!" that would be rude lol. where can i access the webinar? youve been so helpful thank you so much!!
  11. what is the funding situation from each like? both great schools, though cornell is ivy. However, living in Ithaca can be rough especially during the winter and rutgers has a great proximity to new york. both great! I'd let the funding decide.
  12. i wouldn't say EE is where my hear it but i've never traveled and I admittedly wanted the easiest acceptance. oy!
  13. i'm also considering EE! (Moldova)
  14. i'm really considering applying but might go for a place that isn't very competitive. is it true that once you get one fullbright you'll never get another, it's just a one time thing? i'm getting my MFA and was thinking about going to an eastern European country (probably Moldova since someone posted on another forum that there are 0 applicants as of now) to study jewish resistance during the Holocaust and Bundism. is this stupid (am i stupid)?
  15. hey! I'm really interested in studying in Moldova! Is it okay to message you and talk about it?
