Low-Residency MFAs

Thanks for checking in at this topic! I'm interested in hearing from
graduates and current students of low-residency MFAs. Specifically I'm
trying to identify the strengths of the following east coast programs:
Vermont College, Bennington, Goddard, Warren Wilson and Antioch
(although I know theirs requires a local "mentor"). If there are
transferees out there, who changed programs for particular reasons,
I'd be interested in hearing from you. Areas of possible discussion:
1) Applications sent vs. acceptances / reason you chose the school you
did. 2) Nature of residencies (layout of programs / workshops) 3)
Faculty / student numbers -- how many faculty did you work with? Were
they assigned or did you get an opportunity to choose? 4) Biggest
personal challenge of a low res program -- did you continue working?
Full time? Part time? . . .and anything else you'd like to mention. If
there are specific items you think are helpful but perhaps not
appropriate to an open forum (i.e. a particularly bad experience at a
certain institution) you may post to me directly at sjn2@psu.edu.
Thanks, Susan
