Columbia University MFA Fall 2019

Does anyone know how many applicants they interview vs how many they end up accepting?? I can't seem to find a clear answer online, but would really appreciate it!!! thanks!!!
They said they accept a total of 72people (24 for each discipline) in their online info session. I have no clue about how many they interview, but based on past spreadsheets and threads they seem to interview quite a huge portion of applicants in comparison to other schools.

If you're talking at creative producing, I think they interview around 75 and accept 25.

So this might be a really silly question but my anxiety about my interview tomorrow is making me a nervous wreck and would love your opinion...

I have my nose (nostril) pierced and usually wear a small hoop in it. should I put a stud in tomorrow for the interview? or will MFA professors not care?? is anyone in the same boat with facial jewelry???

[I feel like this should be the least of my concerns but I just can't turn my brain off but any words of advice will be immensely helpful!!!!]

Usually I go with.... Do what will make you feel more comfortable. I have gone to job interviews with green dyed hair.
Being comfortable is the most important thing. And usually teacher of the arts are more open-minded
 
Just got the email. I was asked to interview for the CP program! Anyone going to the interview in person?

I also applied to the MBA/MFA at NYU. I know that for the MBA(STERN) they need to interview you in person. Do you think it is a good idea to contact NYU and ask about their process? It would be amazing to get to interview in both universities in person. Any thoughts?
FYI, I haven't heard from Stern yet, but the Tisch interviews will most likely be on Feb 21 and 22 according to their email. If you haven't booked your slot for Columbia yet, wouldn't hurt to choose a date close by so you don't travel twice :)

I hope to hear soon from Stern and Tisch. The wait is killing me.
 
How is everyone feeling after their interviews? Mine is on 2/19 and I'm a nervous wreck! I'm researching and practicing my responses, but still nervous something will take me by surprise. Any advice on the questions I should prepare answers for?

Hey @Patrick Clement can you discuss how classes work? For example, how many classes do you take in your first and second semester? Also, I heard something about "blocks"....like having your classes during the "2-9 block" and films that are optional to watch on Sundays, but that will be discussed in your morning lecture. Can you expand upon this more?

I already read your discussion thread from last year about how much time you put into your week between classes and projects, but I was wondering the actual breakdown if you could relatively speak on it.

Thank you.

Thank you so much for giving me a time that I find it hard to stay up to! It's actually over 12:40 pm, the Beijing Time, due to the time difference... Can't stand the wait! I've been thinking of it the whole day... Hope I can fall asleep ASAP (⋟﹏⋞)...
