Re: [seemingmeaning] MFA General questions

Hi Guy,

I think you are definitely on the right track. Also, by all means, polish up and send out work that you generate while taking these writing courses. There is no rule you have to have an MFA to publish and getting into journals can only help your application. You picked some great programs there on your list. Know though that Cornell and Virginia have extremely low acceptance rates. (The others are just very low) =) I think what you will likely hear from folks on the board is to add a couple of more program to your list. The going rule of thumb these days is to apply to at least 8 programs with 12 being ideal (if you can afford all the application fees).

Good luck!

--Jason
