Re: [NickMcRae] Choosing an MFA Program (2009)
i've pared down my list (again). i started out by only wanting to apply to a few programs, but unfortunately things have grown as i've done more research. anyway, you've inspired me to post what i have so far, in no particular order:
i'm applying for poetry. can anyone offer up any thoughts on the poetry programs at these schools, or on any programs i'm blatantly missing from my list? i'm on the hunt, specifically, for good funding. (it would probably seem, then, that i'm missing wash u -- but i've spent some considerable time in st louis and i'm just not that fond of the city. i might add it at the last moment, or save it for next year if this is a bust. and nyu has snuck onto my list for the opposite reason - i'd love to be in new york next fall!)
university of illinois in particular has been on and off my list -- any thoughts? i'm in-state, so i get a tuition discount, but their funding situation is a bit confusing, or maybe i've just read too many websites this past week. is there anyone from the program who can give me their take on it?
