Re: [pongo] the application annotation

Your lives and careers do not depend on getting into the right MFA program, or on getting into one at all. Yes, an MFA program can change your life -- for the better or for the worse, and just as any other experience can change your life. You can be a good writer without the degree, and some people will be better without it than with it.

I think Pongo / David (what is the proper etiquette for that? Do you address people by screen names or real names?) is spot on, though I think - hope, believe - that all of the people who are applying here are pretty sure that they will benefit from an MFA program.
I'm actually feeling much more relaxed now that it is actually mailed. Not sure what my blood pressure is, but I think it is lower. I guess at this point, all I can do is relax and wait.
Though being a student again would be nice just so I could have late-night drinking-and-arguing-about-poetry sessions (which I would probably enjoy more if my children did not wake up every morning at 5:50 a.m.).
