  1. 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!

    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?
  3. Has anyone heard back from Columbia for painting mfa?
  4. Hi I just applied to 2020 Yale painting MFA program. I forgot to check in the box for the representative work on my portfolio. Does anyone know if this would affect my application in any way? + Is is possible to apply to the same program to fix this issue? Please send help :(
  5. Hi I applied to the Yale mfa painting program just now, but i forgot to check the box for my representative image on my portfolio. Would this affect my application? +is it possible for me to apply again on the same program just to fix this problem? So desperate right now:(
  6. 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 i
  7. Congratulation to all of you who have been accepted into your MFA program. My MFA journey will continue in Florence Italy. What are the things you are doing now to prepare you for the next 2-3 years? How do you go about your thesis research?
  8. This is my second round of applying for an MFA in painting. Last round I was offered 3 Post-Baccalaureate. I decided against a Post-Baccalaureate as it would cost me a year and money I rather spend towards an MFA. As a serious artist I will not stop making art because I was not accepted in an MFA program. My portfolio organically will improve and change as time passes. My questions is how many MFA program have you applied to and who offered you an Post-Baccalaureate? Did you decide to take them up on it? If not why not? After finishing your Post-Baccalaureate year did that
  9. Does anyone know anything about the program at University of North Texas? I've heard some surprisingly good things and would love to get some more information.

    MFA in Germany

    Has anyone researched German University MFA programs? I have been on many of their website but can't find information on how to apply for their MFA programs.
  11. Hi all! I graduated in '16 with a Bachelors in Science in Business and IT. When I was first looking at schools, I was interested in pursuing an art degree but my immigrant parents heavily influenced my decision to pursue a technical/business degree. Long story short, my grades were barely high enough to graduate. After graduation, I miraculously landed a job with a large software company and relocated cities. After some time, I moved to New York ( a city I always wanted to live in) and began painting while still working my job remotely. The experience of being surrounded by like mind

    Laguna

    Is anyone here a graduate student at Laguna? Would you mind telling me more about the MFA painting program?
  13. I am looking into 2018 MFA programs here in the US and Europe. I keep reading that Germany does not have the same art programs as the US. Is anyone aware of a German MFA in painting or inter discipline studio studies? I have a dual citizen ship which would allow me to study here in the US or in Europe. Thanks Iris
  14. Hello, I know the forum doesn't have much activity during this time of the year, however I am getting all my things together early/researching as much as I can due to my limitation of not being able to travel. I'm planning on applying this upcoming fall to a few different programs, mainly with a painting focus. My question is for those of you who were accepted last year and have had a semester at your program can you give more insight? Getting most up to date information is important, rather than reading from experiences from lets say 2012. I'm interested in hearing everyones o
  15. Hi everyone, first off I apologize if this is not the right place for this topic or if it has already been discussed. I'm literally brand new, made the account today. A little about myself, I graduated from my undergrad this past december from Appalachian State University, a small school in the mountains of North Carolina. I moved to Albuquerque NM to take a year off and build new work in solitude. My plan is to apply for a graduate program in painting this upcoming cycle. I am a little overwhelmed with all the options, and need some advice on how to REALLY research a program besides read
  16. I rescheduled my mfa interview with SFAI. It is in a little over a week. Researching what to expect, I found a thread that said this (rescheduling or canceling) is a "horrible idea unless you want a rejection letter"..!? Can anyone comment on this? Anyone reschedule and get accepted?
  17. Hey Guys, I remember being in undergrad and sometimes feeling so distant from my peers because I was an international student. Well, here I am again on this voyage about to feel even weirder, this time as a grad student. I thought that we should have a space where we could be able to share experiences, answer questions, give advice, or just a space where you say what makes you feel ok about yourself. Good luck everyone! Disclaimer: I worked with International Services during my undergrad but this does not make me an immigration official. Although I can give my opinion on certain si
  18. Hello artists, I am now officially narrowing down my list of MFA programs, with a focus on painting/drawing. It is VERY important for me to get funding, and it is somewhat important that I like the location (my partner will be moving with me, and we both do not want NYC or Chicago). Adding to the list of complications, I'd really love to find a 3 year program. So far, most of my favorite choices on the list are 2 year programs. Does anyone know of 3 year programs that I might be missing? Or, if you know of any strong painting programs (that have good funding) to add to my list below,
  19. I"m torn between the two programs, I have to decide in a couple of days. I've heard some good things about Brooklyn College, but only by word of mouth. I'm having difficulty finding out any concrete information about what positives Brooklyn College offers besides the obvious like being in Brooklyn and affordable tuition. As for NYSS I feel it's a very specific niche that it appeals to . . . I do feel that I am in that niche but perhaps not where I want to go with my painting.
  20. I applied to University of Oregon and University of Washington for MFA in Painting and Drawing. I also applied to Arizona State and University of New Mexico. My top 2 picks are UO and UW, but I am torn between the two. UO is the average 3 year painting and drawing program and UW is a 2 year program. UO has printmaking which I LOVE! UW does not:( but it is 2 years instead of 3! Neither program looks to have much in the figurative style which is my concern. My work is all figure:) Any advice or personal point of view?
  21. Hi all, I am a first year MFA Student at Illinois State University in the Painting program. Unfortunately, since arriving at ISU I have come to see that the program is lacking in several ways and that sticking around for three years is not going to be OK with me. I'm in the process of re-applying but my profs are not able to write me recs because of conflict of interest ... Anyone have any suggestions as to how to present this/ explain my leaving to potential programs? Also, any ideas of potential programs to look at? I'm looking for programs that offer partial if not full fnding and stip
  22. Hello All! I'm planning to apply to several MFA painting/drawing programs for 2012. Needless to say, I'm quite terrified since the admission rates seem so dismal! I plan to apply to several of the selective schools like VCU, Yale, OSU, MICA, etc. However, does anyone have any recommendations for some good MFA painting programs that might be less selective (hence more likely to get accepted)? It would make me feel better to have some "safety" schools as well. Also, how heavily weighted is the resume in the application? I graduated with my BFA a little over a year ago and I have been mak
  23. I have a 2.2 gpa and i was wondering should i even waste my money applying to graduate school. My undergraduate professors encourage me to apply, but the application fees are going to add up. Most professors say it would be a crime for me not to go to grad. I hated undergraduate because i focused on my artistic courses and i would stay in the studio for hours, hence the sucky gpa. I would like for my focus to be painting and ceramics. In terms of art, i have over a 3.0 within my major. I've entered my paintings into competitions and I've won awards in my state, so i was thinking maybe that
  24. Greetings All, So I have decided to give applying to MFA programs a try. I compiled a list of 21 schools that I would consider applying to. I then narrowed down my list to 7: RISD, MICA, SAIC, IU, Herron, Rutgers, and Columbia University. I was wondering based on my work where I should consider applying or if there are any schools I should consider dropping from my list. www.adamporterart.com Any and all feedback will be much appreciated. Thanks ya'll! -Adam
