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

Hello all. I'm a long-time (two year) lurker who has finally decided to apply to programs this fall, and decided it was time to come out of the closet. I've heard (from somewhere I, of course, can't remember) that your success depends more on your ability to get into a prestigious program, and less on going to one. By that I mean if you could get into Iowa, but chose not to go, you would end up just as successful (in the long run) as someone who did go. I'm not sure I completely buy that, but I thought I'd throw it out there nonetheless.

I went to the University of Montana as an undergraduate, and in addition to Hamlet (who gives great, enthusiastic Montana advice) I can talk about Missoula and the professors (who also teach us lowly undergraduates) if anyone has questions. So that I don't subject you to my obsessive parenthesis any longer I'll just go ahead and finish with: nice to meet you.
