I'm no expert. I've talked about this a lot with my mentors. And I've attended and left a graduate program because my needs weren't being met. Ultimately it doesn't matter where you go to school. the

Got interviews with Goldsmiths and RCA. It's so weird... The American schools don't seem to like my art much but the British schools are very interested. What's up with that? Not that it's much of a problem though. Living in Europe for 2 years would be sweet. :)

This is my experience so far with the UK - same 2 schools have accepted me. RCA accepted within 2 weeks of receiving my application way back in December. Granted it was for curating, and they have absolutely no financial aid for me, but still?

figurative drawing and painting at Csulb my one and only choice, and you're welcome. I know that we are all feeling the same way, we all have mutant x genes, and  nobody understands us, but one of these days we'll reach paradise. Amen.

Hi guys,

longtime lurker here.

was wondering if anyone has heard anything about ucla new genres. I thought after nothing last week it was a no, but then painting guy got a call yesterday, so maybe there is still hope?

Also anyone else going to the Calarts interview day marathon? I thought I saw someone earlier but I forgot who! 

For those who applied, Calarts doesn't have genres (i.e. Painting sculpture new genres), it's all art so if you haven't heard something by now it may not be good :/ 

best of luck to those with interviews!

:)

Both my interviews with UW went really amazingly, it would be really disappointing if I'm not accepted. They did mention that I was one of 9 shortlisted applicants, and that they'll be choosing only three from that list which makes me really anxious.

Been lurking here for a while now, but I was just wondering if I could get an opinion from anyone?

Do you know if it's a bad thing to get your MFA from the same school where you got your undergraduate degree? I'm asking because I got accepted to my alma mater and rejected from everywhere else I've applied so far and I'm not very optimistic haha.

Has anyone heard from MICA about interviews? Specifically Mount Royal?

I just had an interview with Hoffberger yesterday, so perhaps they are still processing apps. Good luck!

Has anyone else heard from NYAA? I was accepted, but with little scholarship and NYC costs it's looking grim. I also wonder how many people are accepted each year there for MFA painting? And any comparisons to PAFA? Thanks so much!

Congratulations @gtakaoka!!! That's really exciting. How did you hear?

Thank headinspace and @MrBixler!

Headinspace, it was a little scary actually. I had a missed call from Josh Mosley around 6pm my time  on Tuesday night (which was 9pm Pennsylvania time) and by the time I got the message it was too late to call back. The message just said that he wanted to have a brief chat with me and to call him back. I did not manage to touch base with him until the following evening so I spent a whole day freaking out about whether I got in, or they were calling about an application error/missing transcript, or I don't know what.

But yeah. The "TL;DR" version is that I heard by phone.

@Madi1897 The last I heard was that the committee is still processing applications. In addition, I was informed that some applicants are automatically accepted and don't have to interview. Hope that helps!
