    SVA VS PARSONS MFA FINE ARTS

    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!
  2. Hey guys, I am on the waitlist of SVA MFA Design. Do you guys know the chances of getting in? Although I got admitted into Pratt but I really like the program at SVA and still want to wait till April 15th. Fingers crossed!
  3. Hi guys, I posted a topic a few weeks ago, and now I am posting again because the decision gets harder...... Now I have got the following admissions, and all are STEM programs: Pratt - Information Experience Design (IED) Parsons - Design and Technology (DT) SVA - Interaction Design (IXD) NYU - Interactive Telecommunication Programs (ITP) California College of Arts - Interaction Design (IXD)* *= 1 year. The rest are 2-year programs. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ My goal is to become a UX / Interaction Designer because I enjoy the process of turning an idea into a usable/ helpful reality! So, I think Pratt, SVA and Parsons may suit me more than the NYU, which is very artistic and experimental, and the 1-year CCA may be too rush for me to polish my skills and establish myself in the field. Has anyone had any advice on choosing the program to get to my goal as a UX/IXD designer? Thank you guys for your patience! Please don't hesitate to enlighten me if you have any ideas!

    SVA Products of Design!

    Hi! I got into the following programs. My favorite program is SVA as it seems like the most well-rounded program and that is important to me as someone coming without a design undergrad degree. But the price tag is very high... Anyone else thinking of these programs? SVA Products of Design MICA Social Design with $15,000 scholarship Parsons Design and Technology with 20% scholarship
  5. I've applied to several Low Res MFA programs. I'm a returning student and did not expect all these acceptances. Additionally, two schools have offered funding ranging from one-third to one-half. The other 3 have told me that there are offers but they do not yet have numbers available. Commuting is possible at SVA. The others would require 6-8 weeks per year in a dorm which sounds more hellish every time I think about it. Should I put on my big girl panties and go to SAIC as it is my first choice? Should I go to SVA because it is almost as highly ranked and I get to sleep in my own bed and make local connections even though I hate commuting? Should I go to MassArt because it is more affordable and I really liked the professor who heads the program? If any of the schools that haven't given me numbers yet turn out to be fullride, should I just automatically go there? Are any of these schools so crappy as to avoid consideration? Any so wonderful that I should automatically forsake all others? Do rankings even matter? Thanks for your help!
  6. Greetings all. Any though's on SVA's Photo, Video and Related Media program versus the School of the Art Institute of Chicago photo program, or just the two schools in general? What about Pratt's Digital Imaging MFA? I think Chicago is great and would like to move there, but NYC seems to be the place for anything photo related--but don't want to fool myself. I'm more of a fine art shooter than commercial but I know there's crossover. Anyone pick a school and then regret it and drop out to try again the following year? Thanks

    pre-grad art program

    Hey all, Was wondering if anyone out there had any advice of input on a few post undergrad- pre graduate art programs that are specifically designed to help build a portfolio to apply to grad schools. I have recently been accepted (for the summer) into programs at VCU, the Tyler School of Art, and SVA. I'm specifically looking into the programs for sculpture which I know VCU has a big rep but I'm not sure about the other ones, so I'm reaching out to see if maybe anyone has done one of these summer programs or has any recommendations.
  9. Hi All - I just received my acceptance letter from NYU Steinhardt MA in Art Therapy (crazy excited!), but the letter indicates I will receive my financial aid package "in the next few weeks", and that I must accept by 3/15 for my spot to be held. However, I may not hear from the School of Visual Arts (the other program I am interested in) until early March and, if accepted, may not receive my financial aid package until well after 3/15. Has anyone else dealt with a situation like this and, if so, am I just SOL or are graduate programs (like NYU) flexible in these dates? I just want to have all the necessary information in front of me so I can make an educated and thorough decision - THIS IS A LOT OF MONEY I also plan on contacting NYU directly about this as well...but, am looking for for "street level" assistance! Thanks for any information/advice you may have!

    Scholarship Vs Dream School

    I have been accepted to two MFA programs and am facing a dilemma in deciding between the two. I would love to hear any advice anyone has to offer. The first program is an MFA in Interaction Design from the School of visual arts and the second is an MFA in Design+Technology from Parsons. SVA is my dream school and definitely has the upper hand in terms of quality of faculty, and student work. Parsons on the other hand offered me a scholarship worth 50% of my tuition. It is still a good program, but i have some serious reservations about it, namely its size (90 per class as opposed to 15 for SVA) and that i have been somewhat underwhelmed by the quality of the majority of student work. My current employer has been kind enough to offer me a part time position so i can at least count on covering a good portion of my living expenses while at school. Part of me thinks i should just bite the bullet and go for SVA. The prospects of landing a well paying job right out of school are very high, and the faculty there are truly some of the best practitioners in the field today. But then again, 40K in student loans sounds a lot better than 70K in student loans Any thoughts?
