  1. Does this exist? I felt like there should be a place where we can post on here (I know about the MFA draft facebook but that thing stresses me out.) So far I've been rejected by Ohio State and I still have pending: Michener, New Writers Project, Michigan, UMass Amherst, NYU, Brown, Houston. What about y'all?

    MFA Directing 2019- Let's Connect

    Hi all, I ended up lurking last year and it looked like the forum was helpful and interesting to those involved. So, since I've been chomping at the bit and waiting to take another swing at Grad school, I wanted to go ahead and get the conversation started. About me: I applied to several directing programs in 2015 and went through URTA. Schools: Indiana, Illinois State, East 15, Yale, Northwestern, Cal Arts, FSU, Brooklyn. I interviewed with Indiana, Illinois State, Yale, Northwestern, East 15, and FSU. I received offers from East 15 (couldn't afford it) and Illinois State (not a good fit). My wife applied to MFA Acting programs and was accepted into one of her top choices. So we decided to do that. Last year I applied to Yale again (we decided we could be apart for a year if I got into Yale because...it's freakin Yale). I made it to the first round again and was not selected for the final weekend visit. I can only afford to apply to programs that are fully funded so this year I am applying to Boston U, Brown, Northwestern, and Yale (again). I am seriously considering USCD. Maybe: Purdue and CMU. I won't do URTA this year. Not a great experience. This will probably be my last crack at grad school, so fingers crossed. What is everyone else looking at?
  3. MFA application opened up this month!!! Who's ready for 2018 freak-out forum?
  4. Hey dudes! I want to hear more about how your MFA Acting audition and everything for 2019 is going on! And, I want to hear from current MFA Actors or anyone that how do you think of PACE MFA Acting (the Actors Studio Drama School) among top MFA Acting programs in US? Absolutely Yale could be a one of best schools, I agree.. but how's the output or status of PACE in grad acting world comparing to others comparing to others? (ex. Calarts, UW or more) Hoping to hear from many of you!

    Sound Art?

    Hey just seeing if anyone else has applied to Columbia's Sound Art program. Or any sound art program. Haven't heard back yet!
  6. Hey everyone! I don't know why but I feel like the graphic design department of every college functions seperately, in regard to their applications and admissions roll-out, so thought of having a different topic about the same. Thoughts?

    2019 MFA Creative Writing Applicants

    Hi all, I am waiting on pins and needles to hear back from my MFA programs and I'm trying to put my energy into something worthwhile, so here I am. What schools have ya'll applied to? What are your top schools? What's your genre? How many times have you applied before? Has anyone heard back from anywhere yet? I know it's early in the game but I've had so much nervous energy just thinking about it. Anyone else? How's everybody feeling? Good luck on your acceptances!
  8. This section has been dead for a while... Any film/digital media/video/art applications for F19?
  9. Hey everyone! I am fall 2019 applicant for poetry MFA programs. I've seen that people have been getting acceptances back from Ohio State's program and I was just wondering... has anyone been rejected? I'm not sure how they do their send outs but I was just wondering why they wouldn't have sent out rejections if they're sending out acceptances! Thanks

    MFA - CREATIVE WRITING

    Why I am putting myself through this again? I do not have an answer, but I am here. Anyone else out there going through the portfolio/statement of purpose process, still? My first application goes out next week (University of Arizona). I am beyond nervous. How do you decide when everything is "done"? When is anything ever done, haha

    URTA MFA acting auditions

    So I did the acting auditions for URTA's Saturday. And I'm feeling a little bummed out. I only had one interview scheduled with a conservatory and two other programs to contact at school.

    MFA creative writing

    Hi! So I didn’t get in anywhere for an MFA In Creative Writing. I’m now trying to look into different options. Does anyone know good programs that are either online and still have open admissions or places with rolling admissions?

    Good School? VCFA??

    Hi Guys, thanks in advance for any takers. My sister applied and was accepted to the Vermont College of Fine Arts, MFA in Creative Writing. I'm very supportive of her pursuits, but just worry about her school selection. Has anyone heard of this school? is it a good school? I read that it sorta encourages distance learning. Is that typical? Or does that signify a cash-cow scenario? (i come from a very typical type of grad school-- Public Policy, so I am not accustomed to the idea of GRE not required, but open to it) any thoughts, ideas, opinions? Thanks a lot! DWD

    MFA Creative Writing

    Hi everyone! Can anyone let me know if they hear back for MFA Creative Writing? I’m waiting and it’s so hard. Some schools had December deadlines and I don’t know when the letters come in. Is it by mail or email? I applied to CalArts, SAIC, Columbia College, NYU, and Columbia University. thanks!!!

    VCFA Summer Residency

    Hi, all! I applied to VCFA (Vermont College of Fine Arts) back in November--and STILL have not heard back, even though they say they review apps on a rolling basis, and you should hear back in 4-6 weeks. Has anyone out there heard back?? I applied to Summer Residency 2019, for an MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults.

    Vimeo analytics and weird URL s

    I traced down those foreign URLs. They're spam.. Day trading sites mostly but a few online education vendors. Ignore them.
  17. Hi everyone! I saw that Ohio State started sending out acceptances already :0 but the rest of us still have at least a month or two to wait. It's my first time applying to MFA programs and I was curious––what do y'all like to write about? What kind of work did you put in your samples (because I'm pretty sure we all worry about sending in something too cliché lol)? I personally enjoy writing coming-of-age stories that are a bit surreal/whimsical ?and queer––of course.
  18. How do I ask a professor I haven’t talked to in a decade and didn’t know particularly well to write a letter of recommendation for me for graduate school? I took an extended break after I got my art degree due to personal issues.

    MFA for Graphic Design

    Hi all! I'm starting to research MFA's for Graphic Design, and I'm super lost. Most advice articles treat MFA fields the same, which is super unhelpful (graphic design and ceramics? totally the same! biochemistry and physics? sure, same thing!). My portfolio isn't incredible, I didn't go to undergrad for gd or any sort of art (BBA in Marketing), and I'm working currently as a Marketing Assistant and Graphic Designer for a theater company. When looking at school rankings, i feel like there's a huge gap - either the top of the top (RISD, SCAD, Ivys) or your community college. It's really hard to estimate where I could get in because there arent standardized test scores to go off of. Basically I'm looking for any and all advice. My boyfriend whom I live with is probably moving to Boston for a new job soon, so I'd love to look around there but I know the big ones near Boston (Harvard, RISD) are probably way out of my range. HELP!

    Big time error in my MFA SOP

    I just realized that in the last sentence of my SOPs, I refer to the programs as lasting "three years." Only one of my programs lasts three years....whoops! How bad is this?
  21. So I'm currently applying for an MFA in film production at UCLA and in the guidelines they don't indicate anything about a personal history statement, however in the application form it seems that we are required to fill it. There are no specific guidelines given and I'm very confused as to how to approach it. I feel like it will sound like my statement of purpose...

    Trans/anti-disciplinary MFA

    Hey everyone, First post Have decided to return to school this past year and just begun program searching(with sights set on matriculating in 2019). Read a few posts here, and am sure there's heaps of helpful information lurking in the backlogs, but am particularly curious about trans/anti-disciplinary MFA fine art programs. Really don't know that much about programs at large or even many individual programs, so any info is greatly appreciated! Also, if there are any forums that might be helpful for a beginner like myself, feel free to link these as well! For reference: I formally work in "scuplture", but mediums spans clay, fabric, sound, and light. Pretty interested in venturing into installation & conditional art. Looking for a program that'll allow/encourage me to explore all this and more both individually and collectively. Also for reference: I'm located in the USA, but open to looking both within and outside. Heard good things about Goldsmiths in London... Thanks again!
  23. Hi there! I'm new to this site so hopefully I'm doing this right... I'm hoping to apply to some Directing MFA's this fall with a fall 2019 admission. It has been strongly suggested to me that I reach out to the department heads to introduce myself and ask them questions about their programs. But I'm not quite sure what I should ask other than "what is so special about your program?" Any suggestions on what type of questions are good to ask, good vocabulary to use, ways to make myself look good, etc. This is my first time applying to grad school ever, so I am really learning as I go. I have a few schools picked out and have started gathering the application materials, but I feel like this is an important step I shouldn't miss. Thanks for the help!
  24. Hi Everyone, I am new to this site so please forgive me if I am ignoring any seemingly obvious protocol. I graduated from a reputable design school in NYC with a BFA in apparel design back in 2014. I have been working professionally as a menswear designer for the last four years, however I've slowly come to realize this is not what I want to spend the rest of my life doing. When I was in high school I wanted to pursue a degree in fine art but was dissuaded by my parents with the old "you'll never make any money" argument. In the last year I have developed an intense interest in art. Completely unlike the interest I had when I was younger. I found myself diving into theory, learning and reading about all sorts of artists I was not familiar with. It has been such a joy to rediscover my passion for art this way. I have also spent the last 6 months painting figurative and portrait work under a professional artist. I feel deeply that this is what I want to dedicate the rest of my working life to. This has lead me to begin researching MFA programs. I'm still not sure if an MFA is right for me. In the design and fashion world there is this perception that the art world looks straight down its nose at designers therefore I'm worried certain systemic prejudice may work against me while applying to programs. Does anyone have insight into the academic art world's perception of designers pursuing art careers? I've never met anyone who has made a move like this so I do not know if this notion is totally in my head or if there is an existing hierarchy of industries. I am hoping to use this forum as a place for advice as I do not know any working artists or other people who are interested in art in general, so I thank you in advance for reading and responding! Thanks - Jack
  25. Looking to get some advice from the folks here. I've just started at a 3 year MFA program and I'm not a fan of the location. This is definitely my fault, as I should have visited but it was by far the best offer I received and I felt the need to leave my home of 17 years. I feel I will most likely settle into the program itself but my feelings for the city won't change, and thus, I need to prepare to leave after a year. The primary issue, however, is how I would transfer back home. Only 1 out of the 5 programs I'm considering back home (NYC) is a 3 year program. The rest are 2 years. I personally don't have any qualms starting a program from scratch, but I'm not sure how to approach the application process for the 2 year programs once I have a year under my belt. I wouldn't receive credit for my courses but I'm okay with the value of a year of school/writing regardless. If you guys have any thoughts on how to handle the situation, it'd be much appreciated.
