UO or UW MFA...Did anyone apply there?

Recommended Posts

I applied to University of Oregon and University of Washington for MFA in Painting and Drawing. I also applied to Arizona State and University of New Mexico. My top 2 picks are UO and UW, but I am torn between the two. UO is the average 3 year painting and drawing program and UW is a 2 year program.

UO has printmaking which I LOVE! UW does not:(

but it is 2 years instead of 3!

Neither program looks to have much in the figurative style which is my concern. My work is all figure:)

Any advice or personal point of view?

That is good to know...I heard that the program is at the undergrad level. As long as I can take printmaking, I will be happy. I emailed them but I haven't heard back yet. Thanks for the info

I believe that they actually dont have printmaking as a major for graduate level, but you can take courses and use the facilities as a graduate student. So you would still be able to do printmaking while getting your MFA in Painting and Drawing. The program seems to strive for interdisciplinary work so im sure they would love if you worked in both paiting and drawing as well as printmaking. I applied to University of Washington as well. Good Luck!

I applied to UO - it's my first choice and I'm getting quite anxious waiting for word! I did read on another forum that it's one of the last places to make decisions...late March...yikes!

Good luck to all of you!

I applied to UW, and haven't heard, but a friend of mine has already got accepted and offered a TA position.

What program was your friend accepted to?
