Is there anyone else who hasn’t heard a single thing from a school? I haven’t heard anything from two schools and I’m assuming rejection at this point.

Anyone else who hasn’t heard how are you interpreting the lack of news? 

I'm in the same situation. Depending on where you applied, I think it's pretty late. I would send a nice email to the department contact asking for an update.

Until I get an official rejection, I hold a small hope for an emailing telling me I've been wait listed. Unfortunately I think I was passed over. So, I'll just get busy and next year I'll adjust my approach. Or go to school to become an accountant or programmer.

Has anyone received anything from Parsons, RISD, or MICA? 

People on here have heard from all of those schools if I am not mistaken—definitely at least RISD and MICA if you look through old pages of this thread.

I applied to Ohio State in painting and hadn't heard anything from them. I just checked my application status today and it changed to rejected which I expected but I'm glad to know for sure now.

I was just notified today via email that there was an update to my RISD grad application portal and it directed me to a letter that I've been waitlisted for Printmaking. Hope this info is helpful!

Note: I was not interviewed

Ok, this stuff is stressful: A school I had given up on (mostly) followed me on Insta. I spent about an hour thinking “ooh, maybe I’m still a candidate,” they then unfollowed. Um. My account is not private, so they could have checked me out without following...a bit confusing. And totes stressful.

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 received funding in my initial acceptance letter from Pratt for Com. Design.

Did they offer you any funding? I got a bit and I like the school a lot, but I’m not sure if it’s enough. 

They offered 20k (or 10k annually).

What decision did you end up making last Friday? I'm not looking forward to making mine next week.

Also, for what it is worth, graphic design may be different in outcome than other MFA programs, especially with less arty programs like SVA. Last year, I analyzed AIGA's census data and found that MFA's make $7,000 more per year on average. Of course, that is an average, but it is one reason that I decided an MFA may be worth the cost.

I heard that risd has sent out their 3 year GD offer ( not sure about 2-year one)  but I don't know if they don't send offer, will I still hear from them? it probably will be a waitlist or even rejection.
