Re: [cecilpeoples]

CP,

Half-right. :-)

I make 8K/year working as a Project Assistant for the University of Wisconsin-Madison. My total annual earnings for all things MFA-related (consulting, freelance journalism, independent contracting as an author, donations, and [de minimis] online advertising) is around 4K. So I'm afraid I can't claim to make a living from MFA research (and to be clear, I collect data about MFA programs, not for them, I'm 100% a freelancer) -- it's a side project but one I do take very seriously. I know it means a lot to a lot of people.

And yes, sometimes (often) I take it too seriously. But it's been a steep hill to climb to get this data to applicants -- there are a lot of people with a vested interest in none of this data being made public.

Best,
S.
