Re: [HollinsMFAer]

Oh no! My list is out of control. I've tried and tried to narrow it down, but I just can't do it! I'm afraid the one school I decide not to apply to will be the one that would have been the perfect fit (or--eek!--the only one that would have accepted me!!) Now I have this insane list of 18(!!!) schools. I don't know what to do. Any advice is welcome. Please.

Here's my beast of a list:

Bowling Green
SUNY Brockport
UNC Greensboro
Illinois Urbana-Champaign
Michener Center
Notre Dame
UNC Wilmington

Then I have a toss up between Houston, Washington U. in St Louis, and Montana. I feel like I need to pick between those three. I hardly should even bother making a choice at this point-- I mean, what's 21 applications instead of 18??

Any advice besides good luck? My biggest priorities are funding, I'd like a longer program, and the chance to teach/work on a lit mag.

The worst part is, I think I could maybe afford it, if I was really good at budgeting between now and December. Oh dear...

Edit: Whoops, that would be for poetry.
