Low-acceptance rate schools with not much funding? What


Recommended Posts

There seem to be a bunch of rather well-known schools that boast low acceptance rates into their MFA programs, but that do not offer much funding to students... Like not even a full tuition waiver... and few TAs

So there are actually a bunch of people who want to take out loans to go there? Seriously? Why? What's so awesome about those schools?

The faculty, the curriculum, the facilities, network opportunities etc etc.

Like the schools I really want to get into, most of them are more affordable then some options but yes I will have to take out loans to go there.  But I want to because they have faculty that make work that intrigues me and I really want to work with, they have great buildings and resources, are in good locations, have heavy theoretical curriculum, have a lot of well known visiting artists and critics and all these people you meet can really help you become a better artist and start a career.  It just really comes down to the quality of an education you are receiving.
