Re: [fuzen] Starting this up again, seeking your thoughts..

 I was told the USM Ph.D. program is one of the programs I should avoid. A bad location, tiered funding, poor faculty, heavy teaching load (2 comp classes per semester) and heavy coursework requirements (49 hrs or something). Bad bad bad, this is what I heard from a USM graduate! Only apply if I’m really desperate…

Don't forget Southen Mississippi, which offers an M.A. and a Ph.D. for creative writing, and offers full funding, with great teachers.

My roommate got a waitlist notice for poetry at USC yesterday. I got a call from FSU last Wednesday for fiction Ph.D. I haven't heard yet from Houston, but I'm thinking I'll be at FSU come Fall.

Two more programs while I'm at it:

University of North Dakota
University of Connecticut-Storrs

Those (in addition to the list) were the only others I could find.
