Re:Progress in the process

Hi All,

New to this forum, and for that matter, to the whole idea of getting an MFA. I'll spare the details, but I'm hoping to transition from a teaching career (6 years in an English Dept.) to writing. That said, I've gone hard and fast and am just getting the application process started now. I don't feel very stressed about deadlines - Brown and NYU are the only two between now and the new year - but I'm just curious if anyone else is in a similar situation. After reading numerous posts, I wonder if I should be more anxious?!

I should add: I may not be anxious because I haven't had much time to mull this over. I really have NO IDEA what my chances are of getting into any of the schools I applied to (Brown, NYU, New School, Brooklyn College, Washington U, Emerson, Antioch), nor can I really afford to think about it much, being a full-time teacher at present. In terms of my "qualifications"...I've never been published; I'm not a part of a literary community; I haven't done any workshopping since my undergrad days 5 years ago. I just enjoy writing, and believe I have some talent and promise. Is that enough??

Thanks for reading. =)
