  1. For those of us who plan to apply for a Creative Writing MFA in 2021 (start date 2022)
  2. Hello all you creative and interesting art people and MFA hopefuls out there! I decided to kick off the 2022 MFA application season forum, this morning, October 3rd. I saw another one that had some "Post-COVID Era" kinda title, and for some reason it was posted WAY back in July. I started this thread in keeping with the traditional "MFA XXXX Freak Out Forum" format. And our world is CERTAINLY not "post-COVID," by any stretch. (I also wanted to steer it away from that person who started it because I noticed that poster created last year's thread as well, and that poster is not
  3. I'm going to be applying to Creative Writing MFA programs this fall. I currently have a list of six fully funded programs (I am not in a position to afford grad school tuition, or to go into significant debt) and I am looking for some guidance as to whether my list is a reasonable one. I know that most of the schools listed are highly competitive, and I would really appreciate some insight on some less competitive schools (which I understand is a big ask, since I am looking for full funding). Here are the schools I have listed currently: Boston University Brown University Flo
  4. Hello, I'm a non-art major international student, and I'm planning to apply for an MFA in Graphic design at Yale upcoming January. I have a BS in Genetics and I've always been passionate in Graphic design. I've been freelancing for quite a while and most of the work I've done is commercial. When it comes to my portfolio....I'm super nervous and I do not know where to start. I would really appreciate if you guys can help me out in terms of what type of work should I include (poster, book, branding projects, 3d modeling, animation, ui/ux design, typography, packaging...
  5. Hey Everyone, Since it's the start of summer, I wanted to reach out and see if there were any lurking MFA Creative Writing students attending University of New Hampshire in the fall! Of course everyone who has been accepted or otherwise are welcome. 💙
  6. Yo everyone! What a wild year it's been already... Who's staying optimistic and applying to schools for the Fall of 2021? This'll be my first year applying and despite everything going on, I promised myself I'd dip my toes in the water this year and I'm sticking to that promise. The good news is that the pandemic has allowed me to really focus on getting some of my materials prepped ahead of time. The bad news is that I've rewritten and rewritten and rewritten....and will probably do so again many times before I actually apply! Are people applying this year? What do you even think th
  7. Hi! I've gotten funded offers from both Bowling Green State University and Old Dominion University. I've drawn up a list of pros and cons, but I'm still not able to choose between the two universities. Can anyone give me some input on the reputation of these two programs? I'm aware that BGSU has one of the oldest programs in the country and is quite reputed. The faculty list is pretty impressive at ODU. Please help me, I'm really confused!
  8. 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 neithe
  9. Hi Guys, I have been accepted by the following school: SVA - MFA Fine Arts program Pratt - MFA Integrated Practices program CCA- MFA Fine Arts program I am an interdisciplinary artist who makes conceptual artwork. I am open to all mediums but drawing and painting would be the least interested to me. Also, I'd love to take liberal arts class. I want to work in a gallery or a museum while making my artwork after graduation. I like the curriculum of SVA which are lots of interesting and fun classes provided; however, Pratt and CCA seem to be more conceptual.
  10. 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.
  11. hello hello! I have been trying to decide between SVA and Parsons MFA Fine Arts. I wasnt able to find a lot of information online for these fine arts programs. Has anyone attended these programs or have any info that could be helpful. Any help much appreciated since I am running out of time to register! thank you all!
  12. Hello everyone. This is a cross-post with a topic I made in the Humanities board. I'm currently a Junior in a BFA Creative Writing program; however, I studied English at my previous college. I need help deciding where to focus my academic efforts over the next 9 months so that I'm not applying to programs which are beyond my skill-set. I've considered pursing an MFA, but after speaking with my advisors I feel that a PhD program better suits my current interests. I'm much less interested in publishing creative work in literary journals than I am in understanding the rhetoric of artist
  13. Hello Everyone, Not sure if this will get out there to anyone, but I am posting in hopes to gain some information or advice for the Yale School of Art MFA Photography department interview. I have an interview for their Photography Graduate program next week and I am just looking for any helpful suggestions or advice anyone is willing to give, as this is my first grad school interview and I am not quite sure what to expect or how the dynamic of the interview is orchestrated. If anyone can help or can recommend someone to talk to, I will be forever grateful. Thank you guys!
  14. Hello! I've recently accepted an offer from the University at Buffalo for their MFA in Studio Art program. Anyone else accept any grad offers from UB? I'd love to get connected!
  15. Hello Friends! Anybody else need a support group for being a waitlister? I am currently waitlisted for the acting MFA at Brown. Anybody else know if they are on a waitlist? How is the...waiting...going? I feel #manic
  16. Hi all! Unbelievably, there's no Acting MFA thread for 2020, so let's get the proverbial ball a-rolling, yes? Where is everyone in the process? I received an official offer from East 15 today, and a rejection from Brown. (Womp, womp.) It's been a rollercoaster of a day. Ha. Also, I was rejected from USC at the tail end of January. Anyone hear from USD, NYU, or ACT? I know DePaul is still auditioning!

    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?

    Goldsmiths & RCA

    Hello, I was curious if anyone has any information regarding how the Goldsmiths MFA program compares to the RCA CAP (Critical practice program MA)? I am an international student and have not been able to visit because of the pandemic, but have been accepted into both. I am probably going to defer because of the travel limits/safety issues but need to make a decision beforehand. From what I understand goldsmiths has more space and is very conceptual, and the rca is very prestigious but the CAP program also seems to be very conceptual. I have looked through all their program specifications and p
  19. Has anyone heard back from Columbia for painting mfa?
  20. I am DYING to know whether UCI’s Program in Writing has notified the next cohort if they’ve been accepted. Has anyone heard back? Should I just assume I didn’t make the cut?
  21. I haven’t found any online threads discussing this year’s MFA audition experiences. Who else is waiting to hear back ?
  22. Hello everyone, Welcome to my pre-graduate educational crisis. I'm currently a Junior in a BFA Creative Writing program; however, I studied English at my previous college. I need help deciding where to focus my academic efforts over the next 9 months so that I'm not applying to programs which are beyond my skill-set. I've considered pursing an MFA, but after speaking with my advisors I feel that a PhD program better suits my current interests. I'm much less interested in publishing creative work in literary journals than I am in understanding the rhetoric of artistic forms and
  23. Hi! I applied to 8 MFA programs. I have been granted interviews from 4 of them so far, as a finalist. I have been accepted to two and am still waiting on the others. I have had 3 interviews so far, all skype. I am wondering how much weight does the 15 minute skype interview actually have? How much does it affect your chances? What are the most important factors in a school's decision? Is it the overall application (statement, portfolio, recommendations) or does the interview have a significant spot in determining the decision? Help! I'm freakin' out
  24. I am applying to an MFA program (CA, TX, RI, CT) and the application says works must be within a certain time period (e.g. within past 12 months). I have a few pieces that are among my best work that I really want to include in my portfolio, but they're older than the rules allow. The works don't have a date on them, just the sig. What to do? Will I be disqualified? It's my work, and most of the pieces I'm including are within the stated guidelines, but I think these really show what I can do. Help!
  25. What MFA program would you think is best for someone studying photography and video? I would love to know. Thanks!
