I've contacted a lot of programs because I don't have a job, therefore do not have the funds for application fees. I also am only looking into programs that do not require the GRE. So far here is where I am applying :
Re: [motet] Choosing an MFA Program (2013)
University of Michigan in Ann Arbor
Hollin’s University in Roanoke, Virginia
University of Massachusetts in Amherst
Southern Illinois University in Carbondale
University of California (either San Diego or Irvine -- as I'm not sure if both would give me a fee waiver?)
I will probably also apply to Cleveland State University.
I'm kind of scared because I've lurked around on peoples blogs about MFA programs and have seen people go as far as to apply to all the fully funded, and only get accepted to one. I don't want to have to wait a whole year to do the applications all over, and really I'm not interested in trying to trying to apply to other schools for any major outside of the English/Writing hemisphere.
So I'm looking for some "safety schools", preferably that have a fee waiver and does not require the GRE. But I would be interested in MFA or even MA English/Writing programs safety schools as long as they do not require the GRE. I prefer a brick and mortar college, not online or low res.
Or if anyone knows any programs that help with application fees besides McNairs?
