Hey there- (and whoa, calm down-)
Re: [asneth] New School Contact
So I dont know if this helps but I'll tell you how I was contacted for New School fiction. Well first, a couple weeks ago, I got this cryptic letter in the mail about specific loans/scholarships I would receive, with exact amounts and everything, but it said nowhere whether or not I got in. (It began "we are pleased to inform you..." - i got all excited, then realized it told me nothing. Grr.) So I called the finance office and they said, yeah, we have nothing to do with admissions, you may or may not be accepted, dont ask us. So I waited some more. Then on Mar. 27, I got an email from the "Assistant Dean of Admissions" congratulating me on being accepted, letting me know I should expect a general info package in the mail soon. When I called today to ask some questions (and yes, mentioned my name) , the guy on the phone (I think it was the same "Assistant Dean of Admissions") sounded confused that I hadnt yet received the package, and told me to expect it very shortly.
Okay, there you go - an abundance of probably irrelevant information, all relating to my New School fiction MFA acceptance experience. Speaking of New School fiction MFA, hey, anyone out there have any opinions on the program or know of anyone who does?
This thing on?
