    hearing that some (all?) risd rejections have come out. i haven't heard a peep out of them, interview or otherwise. not sure what to be thinking at the moment!

    i interviewed with pratt a few weeks ago, but i also applied at their original deadline, which was 1/5. (my portfolio/essay tightened up by the time the others were due, so it was a little frustrating, but. i digress) when did you submit to pratt? perhaps that has to do with it, and the order in which they get back to people. additionally, does anyone know if UCLA always does interviews? i've heard the state system doesn't always. trying to gauge if i have much hope for that program if info is going out this week, lmao.

    that's good advice!! they're pretty vague in the acceptance email, though talked quite a bit about the ways i can visit the program to make my decision. unsure if i should expect anything else based on this phrasing tbh...i've only heard back from two schools so far, but they were quite differently formatted. the first outlined the funding options right away, and then this one makes no mention other than a guaranteed TA position and the deadline to accept the admission offer or not. i am local to the area, so it's easy for me to pop over and talk to them but phrasing a question for funding feels like something possibly more tactfully done over an email? given i'm also waiting to hear back about my options from other programs, i wonder if i should also wait to see if i have any leverage, so to speak. idk. it's where i'd really like to go, but def can't afford full tuition. 😕

    thank you!!! this is actually quite reassuring to hear. do you recommend waiting a bit to see what funding options come through, or asking sooner? was it also from cca, or another school? thanks again. also---i haven't seen anyone else mention emily carr here, but i did get an email from them today that they are having a delay in admission results due to "unforeseen circumstances" so...just an update if anyone was looking for it.

    was accepted into my ideal first choice today (location mostly! don't really want to move lmao) but there was no mention of funding in the email. a good moment and a sad one as well...this process is so up and down. cheers to everyone still waiting for more info!

    was accepted to pnca today! i was reading through the last board and saw some people mention there's a way to ask for more funding...obviously i'm gonna wait to see what some of my other options are in terms of scholarships but they're offering basically a third and it's still pretty expensive. 😕 has anyone done this yet? have any experience with it? would love love some advice on this.

    i interviewed with painting this week. not sure what department you applied to. apparently they extended their deadline till recently (? or so i hear, i wish i'd known that lol) so it's possible they'll be interviewing for a while! good luck!

    i applied to painting on 1/5, i believe. it was the earliest deadline and i do feel like by the feb deadlines rolled around, i'd really tightened my essays up and even added a few pieces, so....sigh. anyway, yeah, very different deadlines, that's interesting. sorry, i misread the IxD as like the old xD emoticon and didn't realize you were asking about a specific department. lmaoo

    i interviewed with them today. it was shorter than my other interviews and i'm not entirely sure how it went, which is an odd feeling to say the least. i hope you guys hear soon!

    a bit of an update/summary for anyone who may be looking for one about these schools: i interviewed with emily carr last week, they said they should be making their decisions in about 1-2 weeks. so...soon! ah! i haven't seen anyone mention this school---in my research of funding options, although i doubt to get scholarships bc i'd be international, canadian schools are often half the price, sometimes before exchange rates. so i'm surprised no one mentioned applying to any schools in canada! pnca was also last week and they didn't give an exact estimate, but implied it would be within a few weeks. possibly any day now, possibly much later. i saw pnca mentioned in a few different places on this forum. cca said they usually send out information mid-march. (interviewed with them yesterday!) anyone else applying there? pratt is next, i'll report if they give an approximation. based on my undergrad experience/what i saw mentioned about last year's season, it should be also about mid march. ucla i've heard nothing from, but apparently don't always do interviews? and are also a mid-late march deadline school. risd is also slower; i saw someone wasn't accepted until april. in my experience with them in undergrad, they were also the last school to get back to me. the last school i applied extended their deadline until a few days ago, so i don't really know what to expect at all, or if they do interviews. it may seem to not be as mandatory in the cal state system, like ucla? i'm starting to get a bit nervous in not having much more definitive information yet. but that's the waiting game! anyone else apply to some of these schools and hear something different or know anything?

    this is exactly what happened to me in undergrad too. it's really frustrating and heartbreaking! i know, for undergrad at least, the schools do sometimes communicate with each other about applicants so like, you would hope they could all stamp out a single offer date and single deadline so it would be less stressful....but. alas. what can you do. 😕

    maybe the interview relates to those who they want to sus out for scholarship opportunities? i don't know. interesting. thanks for sharing the info!!! this is reassuring to finally have some kind of timeline, lol
