  1. I got into CalArts's and SVA's MFA Photography program this year, but I'm struggling with the final decision. To me, New York seems to be a better place to study contemporary photography and has more chances to find a job, but overall CalArts has a better reputation on this program but is located in a relatively poor location (Valencia, 30mi away from center of LA) to develop photography as an art, have a lively social life and find a well-paid job after graduation (I could be wrong about CalArts, though). P.S., SVA offers me 3-year admission and CalArts is regular 2-year. And neither provides any scholarships, tuitions are quite similar but living in New York cost about 1/3 more and needs an extra half a year to a year. Any additional information or suggestion will be appreciated!
  2. Hey any thoughts/comments would be super appreciated! I got accepted into MFA Photo program 2021 at SAIC and CalArts. Does anyone have any impressions on either school in general or the photo program/faulty/student body specifically? Anything is worth sharing. Just trying to cast a wide net of opinions as I try to make this decision.
  3. Hi guys, Got 80% tuition-covered scholarship from SAIC and had already decided to go there.. but this morning, CalArts offered a full prize scholarship. I feel like in a struggle to choose any one.. Any suggestions on their photo programs? Many thanks!
  4. Hello all, Starting the forum a little early this year. May the MFA gods be with us!
  5. Hi, I'm currently in the third and final year of my Bachelor's Degree in something totally unrelated to Graphic Design, in India. I don't want to do anything related to my Bachelors in the future and want to do something related to Graphic Design/Illustration after I graduate. I've always been into art and design since a child and I was seriously considering Graphic Design in school. I even got accepted at an Art School with a Foundation year but I chose to stay in India as I got into one of the best colleges in Liberal Arts here. Even now, I find myself doodling in class all the time, have big ideas in my head and volunteer for small college design stuff. I don't have much experience apart from art classes in school, winning a few small college level competitions and designing invites, posters etc for college events. I thoroughly enjoy design but lack any kind of formal training and don't know any technicalities related to Graphic Design. I simply use a cheap knockoff of Photoshop to design stuff, which I am really passionate about. People praise my work all the time and a number of people have told me to pursue design in the future. I feel like I have the potential but lack any proper education in Design. I absolutely don't want to study further in India as the Design scene here isn't too strong and want to learn GD from scratch. I researched a lot and found the following options, but am not sure if i'll be accepted for an MFA at my level, being only 20 years old. OPTIONS: 3 year MFA in Graphic Design (schools like RISD, CalArts, CCA) Post-Bacc at MICA 2 year MS in Communication Design at Pratt 2 year AAS in Graphic Design at Parsons 2 year AAS at Pratt where after the two year AAS, I can transfer to the 3rd year (Junior level) of the BFA in Comm Design) Second Bachelors in Graphic Design It would be amazing if I could get some advice about this as I am thinking about this all the time and really need some direction and clarity. Also, if someone could suggest a few schools in Europe, UK etc, it would be great! As of now, whatever schools I researched about in Europe/UK, they require a lot of experience to apply at the Masters Level.
  6. Hi all, TLDR: Does anyone have any firsthand experience with the Interschool Program at CalArts? Or any general secondhand information? Orrrr maybe you know someone who is attending/attended in recent years? Or maybe you also have questions about it, and we can discuss? After I was accepted (for Fine Arts & Creative Writing Fall 16) I was told that, because I would be an Interschool student, I would have to share my studio space with another student. And considering the fact that my tuition would be the same exorbitant amount as everyone else's I was a bit peeved, to say the least. Wondering how other people have dealt with this? There's a conspicuous lack of information available about the program tbh and admissions hasn't been very forthcoming, so I'm worried that it's perfect on paper only. Also do please reach out if you're going into both/either of the programs this Fall! Would love to know my peers ahead of time. Cheers M
  7. What have people heard from calarts this season?
  8. Hello people! I couldn't find a current forum for folks treading the process of applying/waiting for a decision from Film MFA programs. Let's get the discussion going! I know I have questions about when schools contact you with their decision, which schools give the most funding, and the interview process. Tell later I bid adieu...
  9. I am pretty new to this forum, so forgive me if this question has been asked repeatedly. I am in the process of researching mfa programs for photography (starting Fall 2012). Does anyone have any advice as to what programs are good "fall backs". I am currently thinking about applying to 4 top tier schools, and 2 fall back schools. The 4 I know I want to apply to are Yale, SAIC, RISD, and CalArts. Also, any advice about interviews? (assuming I make the cut! haha)
