I'd ask why you need to get a BFA ? I'd guess it's of little economic value long term. Are you looking to get deeper into photography? Expand horizons? I pursued a mostly non-art college education and study and practice photography at my own pace and interest (along with work, family, and other pursuits)

“Work needs conceptual and technical development” Get used to being misunderstood as an adult doing your own thing. It never stops if you keep learning and doing. Consider it matter-of-fact that nobody actually understands anyone real well, and it goes both ways. Consider their suggestion an opportunity that could either help you, help you understand other photography, or both. If they are wrong (which is unlikely as it's quite vague), nothing's new. If they are right, rise to the challenge.
