Does anyone know when University of Delaware sends out interview invitations? Or maybe they have already been sent? Their deadline was on 2/15 so it’s probs going to take a bit longer. 

They seem to do it early. I know someone who got their UDel acceptance a few hours ago via email, plus all of the three GrdCafe results show notifications going out within a week or so after 2/15, assuming the deadline has stayed static.

Best of luck to you!

Edit: Also, there was no interview.

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

Good to know! Thank you! I’ll keep an eye out for it. :)

Hi everyone, been anonymously lurking and reading here the past few months through my application process. I applied to 7 schools and have only heard back from Yale (rejection) and MECA (acceptance via phone call last tuesday). 

Has anyone heard from the following schools? 

Columbia University (I think I read they all ready sent out interviews for painting)
RISD
UMass Amherst 
University of Oregon
University of Washington
 

Also, I am currently finishing undergrad at Pratt Institute. If anyone has questions about the school I'd be more than happy to share some info. 
 

There's a handful of us waiting for University of Oregon still.. Admissions office said interview notifications would most likely go out early March. One more week! :)

I've had several seperate interviews with faculty at UWashington. I think they're still narrowing down people on their shortlist.

I find that most of you here are fine art students? Like, sculpture and painting. I think I'm the only one from illustration major and trying to transition to slightly different major? I actually had an i terview on Monday with MICA Illustration Practice. It was about 25min long interview. I seriously don't know how I did it. I was too nervous and honestly did not look intelligent as I was speaking. I was lost as I was speaking for a few of my artworks. I don't know how selective and hard it it to get in MFA program, especially when you are trying to get in to the exact same major. I studied Illustration in BFA at Parsons. The schools I applied are illustration, fine art and digital arts. I'm just really insecured and anxious now. So far I got rejected from two out of nine I applied. Is anyone as anxious as I am?

Has anyone heard from CalArts (art) or UCLA (painting) yet about interviews? 

CalArts Photo and Art&Tech sent interview  invites around Feb 11 (a friend of mine and I got emails within a few days from each other). They want to interview all applicants on campus on March 7, so I imagine they must send all the invites before the end of February to let people make travel arrangements. 

I haven’t heard from UCLA (Photo) yet, but someone who applied for Painting mentioned they got a call from them a few days ago.

Does anyone know anything about SVA Computer Arts, FIT Illustration and Pratt Digital Arts??? The only thing I got back from the admission office is that they'll notify the final result on or before April 1st. Not sure about Pratt tho... Does anyone ever know about Pratt Digital Arts program?? (I know they don't conduct interview)

Just confirmed a Skype interview with UCSD.

So there’s supposed to be an interview weekend on March 1st and they sent me the invitation late January but only confirmed the actual Skype interview date yesterday coz I couldn’t make it to their campus. Even though they did offer funds to assist with travel reimbursement and hotel accommodations ➡️ So anyone looking at this post in 2020 here’s some information may be helpful to you :)

Not sure about FIT&Pratt, but I know lots of people receiving admission letters from SVA Computer Arts. What does your application status say? If it's not 'application closed', then there might be a chance!

Hey, has anyone had an interview with UIC yet? I have an interview with them tomorrow and guessing what the questions could be!?

Congrats and good luck on your interview. Do you know if UIC is conducting interviews for all departments? I applied to photo and this was one of the schools I really liked.
