Got an interview invitation from MICA 2-yr GD!

Congrats guys! Do you know if all interview requests have been sent out?

MICA was my only hope but have not heard anything from them, so probably it's a rejection in that too. Good luck for your interviews!

I got an acceptance letter from SMFA!!!!! And a $15,000 a year scholarship!!!!! If there was an emoji for fainting and then laying on the ground giggling with glee that would be me haha. SOOOOO much R

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 scholar

Just got accepted to Penn State via Email!!! I am crying, this is so incredibly validating because I wasn't even going to apply this year because I didn't think my work was ready or good enough. Also

I don’t know, it didn’t say in the email, but I just got it a few hours ago, so I wouldn’t fret yet they may still be sending them.

I checked last year forum and rejection letters were sent March 9. Last year a friend of a friend received interview letter last week of February and he had his interview March 15. 

 Hope it helps! Good Luck! 

 

 

Thank you! Seems like they get later and later every year there!

I got a rejection from Rutgers a day ago and got an interview invite from Hunter this morning. I haven’t heard from VCU (painting) yet tho a few ppl on here have mentioned receiving interview invites already. Anyone knows when UARK will send out their invites? 

Hang in there, friends! :D

Finally got a letter from SAIC, rejected. They offered me a spot in their undergrad BFA program as a "prior degree student", which is kind of insulting although my undergrad is a BA in Film and Video, so maybe that's going to end up being a hard sell for a lot of MFA programs. No one mentioned it negatively so far though and my Portfolio Day review with SAIC went very well, he even said "your work is exactly the language we look for in our students at SAIC"...Sigh 😥

Aww, Jess I feel for you. The second undergrad offer might just be something automatic they do, don't take it to heart. Lately SAIC's rejection emails have been offering post-bacs and such much too often. It's becoming a theme. I would not take it personally at all. A feedback on Portfolio Day weighs much more and is much more valuable. Chin up!!!! A BA in Film and Video is something to be super proud of!!!! and you showed tons of determination aiming for your MFA in Painting. Keep strong!

Thanks for the positivity 😊 I just finished my skype interview with SMFA and I feel like it went really well!

Thanks for letting me know! I didn't hear anything from them yet 😕 Is there anyone else still waiting to hear from MICA GD dept too?

I don't know about that. But two of my friends just received interview invitations at the same time with me.

I received my interview request this morning too. Looking at the available interview timeslots right now, all but 6 have been claimed.

Congrats Chauncey!

Hey, how many slots are there in total? I can't get around the fact that I didn't receive a Interview request because my NPDA portfolio day went super well with them. 🙈

Also, I had been in touch with the faculty and they seemed super positive!

Another classmate of mine just received an invitation. So there may be some remaining vacancies. Good luck!
