Re: [als02] Choosing an MFA Program (2008)

I too think that is a nice list. Have you checked to see how well the programs' aethetics match up with your writing? I know programs often say "We love all types of writing!" but what I've observed is that there do seem to be inclinations. Example: fiction at Brown seems to be largely experimental while fiction at Montana largely isn't. (I bring this up because I've been in a workshop where I was writing one way and everyone else was writing another before and it made for a fairly miserable experience--multiply that by 2-3 years in an MFA program and that can be hell). Just some thoughts anyway and good luck.
