*Accommodate. Man, I'm never fast enough to defeat this beat-the-clock post-editing system.
Re: [Zuleika Dobson] 2009
And I agree re: additional requirements beyond the MS. I was originally going to rework an essay I wrote during undergrad, but I don't think I responded to any collections of poetry written within the last ten years (as required by the Columbia prompt). I think I'm going to have to go with something brand-new, which isn't horribly difficult (1,000 words is, what, three to four double-spaced pages?) but still takes time away from editing the MS, which is what I feel I should be mainly concerned with.
Then again, Columbia takes 80 - 90 of the 600-ish applicants they get each year, so they've got one of the highest acceptance rates around.
