  1. When I applied the priority deadline is in January. After that it is rolling.
  2. feel free to dm me happy to chat about courtauld
  3. I made a similar decision for college five years ago - although it wasn't local, I decided to go where I got a full ride over Barnard, which was my top school out of my acceptances. I loved my college experience and my art history department turned out to be amazing. Most of all, graduating not only debt free but with a lot of money that would have gone to tuition saved has been ideal-- it allowed me to afford to study abroad for a year and then move to the UK for a top MA program without debt. Where is your local school? NYC may have a lot more opportunities but it is also likely infinitely m
  4. Hey I am also currently doing the Courtauld MA so if you have questions about the program feel free to message!
  5. If you look in the results search for Hunter people often put in their GRE scores

    Medieval art

    Okay I see they have Medieval studies one so I guess that's what your profs are referring to

    Also the medieval prof at my alma mater, Deborah Kahn at BU, is super nice, if you're looking for potential advisors

    I've heard that Williams and Tufts both give major scholarships for their MA students
  10. Have you considered doing an MA elsewhere instead? Tufts, Williams, and Courtauld (one year) have the top rated programs. I'm going to the Courtauld and they do have a specialist in contemporary Asian art. You should also look into applying to fellowships such as Fulbright as an alternative. I would definitely hold off on applying for a PhD if you can't apply to your top programs (i'll probably be in the same boat) because you shouldn't compromise on something that is such a long term, career-defining commitment.
  11. I've lived in Boston for four years without a car; seems like it would be a pain esp with parking. The T (metro), bus system, walking, and sometimes lyft/uber are totally sufficient.
  12. Check out Allston-Brighton

    This is what they told me when I asked about it: "We do not normally grand deferrals for the MA History of Art applicants due to its unique structure-option based, and options do tend to change every year. The new options for the next academic year will be determined in the Autumn, so we are not able to guarantee your deferrals at the moment-having said that, on the assumption the option you have an offer for runs for the next academic year, I am happy to ask your option leader to see if he is willing to grant a deferral." So I guess this means that the deferral would not be guaranteed? w
  14. Does anyone have any insight on whether international students will be able to get visas for this coming fall to study in the UK? As far as I know there is currently no visa processing.

    Hi all, I'm considering deferring my MA this year and could use some advice/opinions. It would be from the Courtauld, where deferrals are particularly tricky, so if anyone has experience with the Courtauld specifically that would be helpful.
  16. Thanks for the info. I definitely don't plan on committing if it will be online, although I do think it is more likely it will be hybrid and mostly in person given the small class sizes. My biggest concern about it is the visa with the UK not issuing visas at the moment.
  17. Has anyone heard back yet about Courtauld Scholarships? We were supposed to hear back by mid-May.
  18. I'm about to graduate from BU undergrad and the grad program seems really strong. All of the professors I know really value professional experience post grad so I think you have a solid chance. Feel free to message me with any questions about specific professors at BU or anything else.
  19. Check out Boston University - I'm finishing my undergrad there rn and our Latin American specialist, Ana Maria Reyes, is really wonderful. She focuses on modern and contemporary but has a broad knowledge of the region.
  20. Yes but Bard CCS is on the Bard campus in Annandale-on-Hudson. The Bard graduate center does not give the curatorial MA.
  21. You are definitely more excited about Bard, even though the Courtauld would be great too. It seems like you might regret choosing the Courtauld if your heart is really set on Bard, which also has a great alumni network for contemporary specifically. Also, I don't know if you've visited Bard but you may want to keep in mind that Bard is in a very rural area not super close to NYC (as opposed to the Courtauld which is in the center of London). Another factor to consider this year is what the fall semester will look like at each school in response to COVID-19. I am personally waiting on depositin
  22. can someone add me to the slack? links don't work. DM me!
  23. go to the Courtauld - super prestigous/great alumni network and still supposed to be an amazing program despite the construction. Columbia is better for your PhD and you won't come out with any loans.
  24. following! I was accepted to an MA in London and would love any advice on finances/scholarships if any.
