I too thought that originally lol. I like to think they'll contact for interviews before Feb ends if this is the month they say their reviewing all the applications. I'm applying to painting which seems to have already sent out interviews, so that's slightly disappointing ??

I'm sure there are multiple rounds of rolling out decisions, don't worry :)

Found out yesterday night that I have an interview with Cornell for the 15th of February

Congratulations! I gather it was a phone call invitation? Will you be traveling to Cornell to interview? Thanks for posting the info! We are all rooting for you! ✌️

I just got an acceptance email from UT Austin Photo! Still can hardly believe it!

Congrats! Did they email today? I hope that means they’ll be getting back to painting applicants soon too!

The MFA grad advisor attempted to call me, but instead received a UT Austin Painting acceptance via email!  Nominated for a recruitment fellowship through the University, which includes a full scholarship, free health insurance, and a more than a generous living stipend. The email goes on to mention that their decision was unanimous, which make me feel truly wanted at their program.

thanks! :-) 

It turns out I DID get an invite but it was low down in my spam folder!!! So thankful you posted or I may have never scrolled down my spam!

Good luck with your interview :-) `they've been pretty generous with the interview length their giving, which will be nice for us!

Hey guys! I wanted to know if MFA programs waitlist students as well? I haven't STILL heard back from SAIC regarding acceptance/rejection and I just don't know what the deal is. 

Somewhere deep down, I still have my fingers crossed though cause my NPDA Portfolio with them went well, back in the day.

That’s amazing congrats! That fellowship would be a dream!

Yeah, a lot of programs do waitlist people. I looked at some past year forums and people had mentioned being waitlisted. Not sure if all schools do though.

I wonder if they sent decisions only to people who were voted unanimously. Because my offer stated the same:)

It’s nice to meet you! Will you come to Austin in March?

Did anyone hear from UT Austin who applied to a department other than painting or photo?  I'm assuming I'm out since I never heard back and people are getting accepted but just curious!  Congrats to those of you who got accepted!!
