MFA 2019 Freak Out Forum

Recommended Posts

Any painters here that interviewed at Columbia University yesterday or today? How did the interviews go?

Got accepted today to MICA's Mount Royal School of Art (multidisciplinary program) as well as Emily Carr's MFA program on Monday. 

Unsurprisingly Emily Carr's tuition is much less, not to mention the Canadian exchange rate helps me out a bit (as well as some grants/funding). Though MICA gave me a size-able scholarship, it's still expensive especially when compared to ECU. 

Not sure what I'll decide, though I'm excited! Can't decide if it makes to spend more, but I'm wondering if MICA will align my career better since I doubt as an American I will stay in Vancouver (though I'd love that). ECU though felt more aligned with my politics and general ethos though, so I'm feeling compelled and confused.

Anyone have thoughts on either program?

Oh and still haven't heard back from Columbia or Tyler... ( Columbia feels like a money-eating machine, and I'm apathetic at best at this point. )

Hello everyone, does anybody know about Pratt Institute? My application is MFA Photography and I had been given on the waitlist. Is there any chance of getting an offer? Thanks.

i’m currently finishing my undergrad in vancouver (as an international student from the us), and staying in canada is quite doable once you have a degree here! vancouver as a city is really expensive to live in though. i’m at ubc, not emily carr, but i’ve only heard good things from their students. feel free to message me any questions about vancouver or the immigration process!

Got an acceptance letter from Pratt Communications Design program! However, there's no mention of funding in the acceptance letter, Does anyone know if they give it out later or this means, I'm not eligible for a funding? NY is too expensive for me otherwise. 😕

But I'm really happy and excited for this! 🤩

I asked weeks ago when we’ll be notified and I was told early March 🙄 (which is now....) so hopefully this isn’t bad news. Do you know if they do interviews?

I just got a reply from MICA saying the MICA MFA Graphic Design will hear from them this week. If you want to know you can go to MICAs website and just do the chat feature and chat with admissions about the status of emails in general.

No, I did not get an interview request. That's why I went to the website and saw they had a chat with admission feature. They told me I would get it sometime this week?

I accepted UT Austin's offer yesterday. Really excited about the program's atmosphere, facilities, faculty, current, and incoming grad cohort. 

While there, I had a feeling 1-2 accepted people were looking for something different and might reject their offers.

Was this a campus visit for the incoming cohort? Do you know how many people are accepted for each area?

Did anyone apply to RISD 2 year graphic design MFA? Have they sent anything out yet? I’v heard a lot of people mention the 3 year, but haven’t seen anyone mention the 2 year, but I could just have missed the posts. I’m guessing it’s a rejection at this point, but worth checking. My portal has no update.

I saw people were rejected and not sure if I should get my hopes up because I wasn’t rejected yet... hmmm... figured I would have been called, emailed or received a letter either way by now? Aaaargh!
