  1. Hi, I'm just looking for some realistic advice. I graduated this May with a BA in Art History and Anthropology. My long term goals are to become a curator, preferably for a mid-range college museum or gallery. I am looking to apply to grad school for Fall 2020 admission. I am in the fairly early stages of exploring programs though I have a pretty good idea of what I want from a program. I am focused on modern to contemporary art (basically 1960s onward). I haven't nailed down my specific geographic focus between African and Western so I am open to programs with focuses on both regions. I am leaning towards Western art simply because I am a white woman and the African art field seems to be flooded with people like me and that gives me pause. Regardless, the programs that appeal most to me are top ten to top 20 programs, however, I think it's important that I stay realistic with my goals so I don't end up wasting a bunch of time and money on programs that I have no chance of getting into. Essentially, I went to a low-level state school (in the UNC system) and had a really crappy first year so I ended up with a 3.3 overall GPA. Luckily I didn't discover Art History until my second year so my Art History GPA is 3.85. But I haven't really done any research outside of class and I didn't graduate with any form of honors. I do have 2.5 years of experience in the museum field and I am hoping to work or intern in the field during the intermittent year before I enter school. The majority of my experience is within registration however and I have no curatorial experience as of now. I haven't taken the GRE yet but I expect I will do well as I a fairly good at standardized tests. I know I have at least two very strong recommendation letters and a third that should also be fairly strong. The programs that really appeal to me are Williams, Columbia, Bard, NYU, CUNY, Tufts, and the University of Bologna has a very interesting program taught half in English and in French. The idea of completing a terminal MA prior to a PHD appeals to me for the chance to bump myself up a bit. Basically, how ambitious can I be? Sorry for the long read, I really hope someone gets back to me. Thanks in advance!
  2. hi Has anyone here applied for rowan williams scholarship?
  3. Hi all, Does anyone have experience with the financial aid at Williams' grad art program? I was waitlisted yesterday with the following email: "You are currently wait-listed for admission to Williams, including financial aid. Your chances for admission are pretty good." It sounds like, if a spot opens up, they won't be offering me a merit fellowship, but I will be eligible for need-based financial aid. For context, I'm financially independent from my parents (meaning I won't file their tax returns on my FAFSA and won't provide them unless Williams asks), and my income last year was just under $30k. It seems like a long shot to expect a full need-based scholarship, but I don't really have any money to pay for grad school, and my parents aren't contributing anything. This is definitely not a degree I'm willing to take out loans for. So can anyone vouch for the quality of the program's financial aid? I have a full fellowship at a good but less prestigious master's program, but obviously I would like to pursue Williams if there's a possibility it will be financially feasible. Thanks for any insights y'all can offer.
  4. Anyone else not able to create an application for the Masters program at Williams? On their application page it only gives the option to put in a preexisting PIN and password, but I never made an application. Tech support told me to click "create" and application on the far right, but I don't see that option anywhere on the screen.
