summertouch Posted December 21, 2010 Share Posted December 21, 2010 Hello all, I know this isn't exactly about 2011 apps but I really need some honest opinions at the moment. Have any of you had a chance to intern at the MOMA by any chance? I am currently out of the country and I will have to move to NYC solely for this internship for its duration, which is 14 weeks. I already have an internship experience with another really famous institution and although the internship wasn't exactly a curatorial work, it assisted me with my research project, which developed into my MA thesis. With this internship experience already on my resume, I wonder if it's worth going into another one given the high cost of living in NYC? I know it's going to be a wonderful experience and some of you might ask me why did you even apply in the first place, but all I can say here is that I've somehow started to feel very nervous about spending so much money on it. As for my career, I think I am interested in teaching but I am open to museum work, which is why I applied in order to find out. But then again, since I am starting my PhD in art history next fall (2011) I keep thinking I would have another chance if I really wanted to. I am so torn! I wonder if I am blowing away a great chance. I am trying to think hard about pros and cons here. Any honest opinion or advice? Thanks in advance.
