    MFA over 50

    This is my second round applying and after the NY Portfolio Review I will be changing my application approach. It was quite an eye opener. How many fellow MFA applicants are over 50? Have you been told Universities are concerned that they don't know how to handle mature students? Worried you are to stuck in your ways and not fit into their programs? How did you convince them that you are the kind of students they desire?
  2. Hey, I'm wondering if anyone has any advice on how to think through this dilemma: I applied for PhD programs this Fall. I've heard back from 2 of the 5 schools I applied to, and I got accepted at both (one of which is a top 3 school in my area of studies). So, it's safe to say I have good options in front of me. I'm excited about the prospects. My family (parents, siblings, extended clan) all live in the Middle East. I've lived away in the US for the past 6 years, while pursuing undergrad and a master's degree, and only moved back 7 months ago. If I choose to pursue a PhD, that woul
  3. Hello everyone, First time poster. I've recently earned my BS in Psych and was pretty sure on my path after this milestone, but things aren't quite as clear as they were while I was still in school. I want to work in a field where I am most needed, not in terms of position openings but service to the population. I love working with children and my feeling is that I can do the most good within a school, and in all honesty that's where I'd like to work. Teaching isn't quite for me so I've narrowed down my options to a school psychologist, counselor, or social worker. What would be most
  4. Hi, GradCafe! I used to have another account here when I was just starting to apply to grad school and I'm glad to be back on here. Grad school can be *SO* stressful, and I think that our loved ones often have no idea what we're going through or how to check in with us. We so often say "fine" when asked how we are, but that doesn't really get at how we're feeling. I made (with the help of a bunch of other grad students) this video to help people understand how to check in with the grad students in their life: I hope you all like it!
  5. Hi all, I'm in a bit of a (seemingly) unique situation right now and hoping you all may be able to focus my confusions a bit! This past semester, my spouse and I had our second child. Resultantly, I tanked in my courses hard and came out the other side with an overall 2.6 GPA, predominantly due to how much my attention had been divided. I still have two semesters left before I graduate, but that isn't enough to recoup the past, well two semesters really, of poor grades (2.95, 2.25). My major GPA is sitting right below a 3.0 and I still have 12 credit hours of major specific classes t
  6. Hi, Just wanna see if there are anyone out there who are applying for/have gotten into grad school with family/children in tow? I am a mother of one and decided to give grad school a go. I haven't heard back from any schools yet (I have only applied to Canadian schools), but would like to have a chat with people who are in similar situation, and hopefully we could gather a group of people here who can swap info and thoughts here? Cheers.
  7. Hi all! First of all, I'd like to thank all the users that have been helping me either by asking questions and getting feedback from other users or by responding to my own questions. I'm lucky to have this forum to support me. As the most of you guys, I've been preparing to apply to grad school for the last year of my undergraduate studies. I have done well in my classes, I've got good GRE and TOEFL scores and I've sent my complete application package to nine schools across the United States. There are some important information you should know before I tell you what my current strug
  8. Both my fiance and I are applying to graduate school this season. We'll be getting married in the summer and plan on starting school in the Fall together. The process has been difficult, we're applying to the same schools but different departments and I've been accepted into two programs and he's been rejected from 3. It's really hard to feel happy about acceptances when he hasn't had any. Is anyone else currently applying with a SO that plans to move with you or is applying as well? Have you started talking about backup plans? He's very supportive of me, and excited, but I just received my se
  9. Is anyone applying to or currently in an MFA program while simultaneously balancing a family? I, myself, have a 9-month old and a wife. I'm not sure how I'm going to do it. Any tips out there? Am I the only one?
