i go to a small, private school in Tennessee, and i'm the only graduating senior applying to MFA programs. its nice to read this and not feel so alone in the process. my professors are excited about my applying, but it scares the mess out of me... i'm only twenty-one, probably a thousand years younger than i'm supposed to be to go into these sorts of programs. and i have that secret feeling that i'm just good here in Tennessee, but my poetry is probably laughed at elsewhere. i do write about cottonfields.. oh god...i have a backup school in my pocket already, master's in literature, just in case i'm not good enough. i wasn't even going to try to get in, but then i just felt like i had to know, even if every one of the eight schools i applied to find my writing repulsive.

i applied at eight schools (is that less or more than normal? it was as much as i could afford)
Iowa, Virginia, Stonecoast, Boston, Vanderbilt, Alabama, John Hopkins, then my pocket school, Arkansas State.
my plans for rejections: a glass of wine, a bowl of ben&jerrys, a julia roberts movie
my plans for acceptances: a glass of wine, a bowl of ben&jerrys, a julia roberts movie with friends
good luck everybody
