  1. Just rejected from CMU! Knew it was coming just wanted it officially. Looks like UIC is it! Who else is heading to UIC?
  2. Emailed the dgs at CMU asking for an update - will post when they get back. Hope everyone is almost done with this!
  3. Still holding out for CMU. I feel like a broken record, but has anyone heard anything yet?
  4. Seems like they went through their first round applicants and now that some of them weren't accepted or didn't accept their offers they are interviewing you. Congrats!
  5. New media but I heard back at the end of January.
  6. Any other accepted UIC applicants going to the MFA show / accepted student night this Friday?
  7. Any news from CMU for anyone? Was never interviewed, but hoping for some finality.
  8. I read this on the reddit /r/gradadmissions sub and it really helped my perspective - from the chair of an admissions committee
  9. Rejected this morning via email to decision letter on portal for UCLA DMA. Still nothing from CMU but expecting another rejection. Good luck to all those admitted!
  10. This is precisely what I have heard repeatedly (often from people who did take out tons of loans). MFAs have a high philosophical/personal/societal ROI but not a high financial ROI (typically). My goal was to put myself in a position to have a better practice and possibly teach without worrying about a mountain of debt I'll never pay off.
  11. I'm guessing if I haven't been a part of these successive waves of rejections or acceptances from UCLA DMA or CMU that I'm probably on a waitlist? Hoping something happens tomorrow but I really can't be sure. Even a rejection would let me make a decision with the offer I have, but still holding out so I can make a fully informed choice...
  12. I also haven't heard from CMU - although it looked like a lot of people were rejected right off the bat back in early February. Not sure if there's any possibility left, but I'm assuming rejection too at this point.
  13. It was from another school. Did they say anything about upcoming details/further information relating to your offer, including a formal offer letter? I might send an email thanking them for the acceptance and asking about next steps and they can tell you if you should expect any information about funding, deadlines, etc.
  14. My funding package took about three weeks to get to me after I was accepted - you might ask what funding is available. They know that this is a question you will ask and negotiate on.
