Hi. I am planning to start my MFA in Graphic Design this fall. So far, I have acceptances from a few colleges but the two I have shortlisted are MICA and ACCD(media design). Does someone have any information which might help me take a call on this?
I plan to work for a few years after my Masters before opening a design studio of my own, so the placement opportunities is the biggest factor I should be looking at. Art Center probably fares better n the rankings, but MICA is more selective and I really like the faculty there. So yeah, I am confused. >
Thanks a lot for the advice. I chose Art Center over MICA but now I have a bigger problem. CalArts accepted me too! I would do anything to attend CalArts but the problem is that I have been accepted to the 3yr program. So this is how it stands currently -
CalArts - with $150k in debt
Art Center - with $100k in debt
I will be applying for financial aid again next year(didn’t get much anywhere this year because I am an international applicant) as well as working on the campus, internships etc. Basically anything to earn money to fund my education. But yeah, CalArts or Art Center!
