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

Tell us here! I'd like to put the New School back on my list.

Surely you read Peck's incendiary piece awhile back, though -- I think it was in The Atlantic -- where he said Rick Moody's the worst writer of his generation, and pretty much anything excessive, realist or no, pretty much sucks? And then he whined about how much that stuff's published, as if the majority of MFA'ers weren't still writing Carver imitations? If I were writing in the vein of Moody, or say, a Vollmann or a Foster-Wallace, I'd be kind of hesitant to say, Here, Dale, judge this! I just might suck more than Moody!

I'm all for strong opinions when it comes to art. I just think it helps to be selective in your school search.

His book of essays aside, I'd still love some more info.
