Got a phone call from SAIC today with an offer of acceptance into the ceramics program.

Hello All!  Since we're inching towards the end of this journey, I thought I'd share a tiny anecdote. I never went to art school and have been following this community for two years, hoping to apply

well guys I wanted to tell you thanks for all the support it has been such a great thing to have this forum during admissions period! I have rejected all other offers and will be attending Hunter in t

Accepted into Pratt, Industrial Design! :)

I emailed them a few days back regarding their admission schedule, and they replied saying that decisions will start being sent out mid-March onwards. Don't lose hope if you haven't received a reply yet!

Congrats!!!!!!!! 

Are you also waiting for Columbia?

Thanks!

I didn't end up applying there, since they do not have any design related courses.

What have you applied to Columbia for?

I applied Painting. I saw that some people already did their interview and.. the spring break of school is soon, so I'm just freak out :(

I know this might sound cliched, but try to approach the admission process with a detached attitude. If it works out, then great. If not,  then it wasn't meant to be.

I found this attitude helped me during really stressful times. Healthy distractions also work wonders.

Accepted to RISD Photo MFA. That was a mercifully quick turnaround.

Hey! Congrats on RISD- what was their turn around? I have my painting interview next week. Just curious... 

Again congratulations

Alsooo...would anyone mind to share if their funding for SAIC was described in their offer letter or if the entirety came in a separate package? Wondering if I received anything additional but perhaps haven't found out yet. Thanks guys!!!

Accepted to SVA for mfa fine arts. Also got excellent funding for SAIC and possibly more funding to come.

Downside is SAIC wants an answer by Mar 15th but it looks very likely Im heading to SAIC XD

congratulations!! They are both nice schools, I applied them as well, but I haven't receive any messages yet.

May I ask how did SVA and SAIC contacted you? If it was through email, is it the same email address that they send random program ads?

So I was told that the funding you were offered was given verbally during your phone call. Obviously don’t know if that’s completely exclusive to everyone but just sharing was I told!

I got accepted to two programs there. Both sent me a package in the mail and both called me. One program, when they called, told me of the scholarship they were granting me. And then in that package, I had a separate letter outlining the scholarship. Hope this helps!

@andreabengeart Awesome! I also got in and am waiting for some more info. I was told they only accept 9 into each cohort. Maybe we’ll see each other this summer! 

I reached out to a few current students for their perspective, so I’m hoping that might also help narrow down the decision. 

 

@cklos @chaosforte I also have an interview coming up with MassArt - mine is for their low-res program.

I am interviewing for photo. They set up a second interview day according to the e-mail.

anyone heard from columbia photo? thomas roma, the prof, resigned and that's the last i heard about the program. did anyone get calls for interview or got an acceptance/rejection email yet? 

they had an interview day last week. check your slide room app. if it says "2018 Photo" instead of "2018 Photo MFA" it is unfortunately likely that you are no longer in the running... or this is a giveaway according to past forums.

Yeah email at first for both, and then letter I assume to follow. Though for saic it varies more by program, some were informed via phone first etc

I got a package consisting of two folders; one had my acceptance letter and school paraphernalia and the other had my funding sheet and other info. It seems like different programs roll out things differently (my acceptance letter was dated february 23rd but i got everything March 5th, no phone calls) and I imagine you’ll get your packet soon. Could maybe email someone?

Thank you! I got acceptance exactly one week after my interview. Not sure how the other departments compare in turnaround time. Best of luck with your interview!

For anyone who is interested in MassArt: I called them and all letters were sent out on Tuesday, March 6th (at least for their first round interviews, I guess?). There was a large snowstorm in Boston on Wednesday into Thursday so I'm sure that has held everything up a day or so, but people should be getting letters soon!
