Re: [Aubrie] PhD programs in Creative Writing - Debating Between Two

What I mean is that one should keep in mind that variation within a group is almost always stronger than between groups.
Sure, said hypothetical writer would probably have a different view of the world than you. But so would another white american most likely.

But I really wasn't talking about the ethnic/age make-up. I think that is probably a good thing (not for admissions decisions though). The concern for me (which wouldn't be a concern for many other writers, no doubt) is the focus on issue/ethnic/political writing, which would mean less classroom diversity. If its as prevelant as it sounds its kinds of like going to Brown. Surely Brown doesn't force your writing to be experimental, but its probably a healthier enviornment for expermintal writing.
