Re: [jargreen] Stereotypes are fun and comforting

The funding issue is as simple as you wanna make it. For me, it's very simple: I will not pay for this degree. Why you ask? Simple, too. I don't think it's a good investment to going into debt for writing. And I know for a fact that a good portion of these schools use MFA programs as cash cows.

Shoot, look at Alabama. They just gave Nick Saban $40 million dollars. I love sports, but c'mon, Alabama doesn't seem to wanna shed that "dummy school" persona do they. Point is, these schools are swimming in money. I'll be damned if I give a billion dollar university like Columbia my money. I can write at home.
