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.

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

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.
