  1. You might find some useful information from this thread I posted a few years ago. All the best to everyone.
  2. For those of you who are receiving offers you might want to check out this thread. If you haven't heard details yet, be patient as you might be notified via phone or email or letter from the person in charge of funding. This is a busy time for them. All the be$t to all!

    FUNDING OFFERS

    Some things to think about when considering offers: First and foremost get the offer in writing. Sometimes you will get an informal phone call from the person who deals with funding. They should follow up with either and email or a letter that outlines what you were told. Make sure that you get that and keep it. Schools are very busy at this time of year what with potential incoming students and current students who are finishing the semester so be patient. 1. You may have received an offer of full tuition. Does this include fees as well? Sometimes a school will offer a tuition

    FUNDING OFFERS

    Here is a link from a previous year that has some information regarding offers people received. I am posting it here to make it easier to find.
  5. Try applying to other MFA programs at funded schools (ie. not the ones that offered you the post bac). An acquaintance had a portfolio review and was a post bac was suggested. They applied to several other schools for MFA that year (not the post bac school) and had several acceptances into MFA programs with funding! Post bac seems like a money grab . Keep working on your portfolio. Get it cohesive. Look at current grads going to the schools you are interested in and their portfolios. Some MFA programs have instagram or links on the school website of current and former students.

    MFA over 50

    Not an issue or at least it shouldn't be. If your work is current ie you have a good knowledge of contemporary art you will be fine. You will have much to offer an MFA program. If a school doesn't know how to handle mature students then it is not for you anyway! You do need to have a thick skin as you will receive frank feedback on your work and have reviews. You need to be open, flexible and take suggestions. Your portfolio is most important in the application process. Be confident. Get along well with your younger classmates. Many will be 23-30 years old. You don't
  7. There are about 10 to 12 first year grads of all disciplines each year. Grads are doing well. One recent video artist is showing at a small gallery in NYC and showed recently at Art Basel MIami. Another attended Skowhegan last summer. Very strong visiting artists program. Some excellent professors. Interdisciplinary. Students of diverse age range from across USA and International students welcome and eligible for funding. Here is a thread for anyone interested in USF. I think the application deadline is January 15. All the best to everyone in their applications. p.s. don't pay
  8. Hey Lurkers...you should create an account and join this forum. You won't receive any spam. You can remain anonymous and do custom searches. There is a ton of great info hidden deep in here. You can also private message PM people. Share some info.
  9. I wouldn't worry about that. They will choose based on your portfolio of work. The faculty might not even all read your letter. Now if you had a different school name entirely they might notice. Once again it is about your portfolio of work. All the best to you!
  10. Someone posted this previously. Hope it helps and best of luck to everyone on their interviews! Here is a link to the thread and I pasted some of the questions below. How does your work fit in with the contemporary art world/scene? Why do you want to go to XXXXX? Why do you want to go to grad school? Why now? What resources of this program will be the biggest benefit to your development as an artist? What is your work about? What are your influences? What for you constitutes a good work of art? What draws you to a piece of work? What motivates your work? Who are your
  11. This site gives some idea of acceptance rates. It is not always entirely accurate. A few years ago I read somewhere that UCLA had over 700 applicants for only 20 spots. The number of applicants can vary from year to year. The top programs in NYC and LA do get many applicants. http://www.petersons.com/graduate-schools/university-of-california-los-angeles-school-of-the-arts-and-architecture-department-of-art-000_10036881.aspx
  12. Good to repost that to make it easier to find! The complete thread about programs with excellent funding is below. There are quite a few more programs that aren't in your post. Also, consider applying to programs that aren't in the top 10 and so highly competitive....you might be pleasantly surprised to receive funding and you won't have a huge debt at the end. In the end you make your own success. If you have any to add please add it to that 2012 thread as well. The info is still valid.
  13. you could write some answers to questions such as artists that you look at and have it beside you if your interview is by phone.

  15. I came accross this link which might or might not have some information on UK schools. I haven't browsed it myself. http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/forumdisplay.php?f=307
