There are “167 applicants interviewing in New Haven over the next two weeks before the final cut is made for admission to the Art School’s graduate programs…. The artists who made it to the interview round were selected from a record-high pool of 1,215 applicants, a 15 percent increase from last year. Of the 167 applicants interviewed, 56 will be admitted….
“Traveling from locations across the country, the Eli hopefuls must bring their work to New Haven, a process that can be arduous for students with large canvases or who are coming from far away. Yet Art School administrators maintain that the interviews, fairly rare among MFA programs, are vital to the admissions decisions, particularly in departments such as painting.”
