I figured it's around that time again - when the anxiety and consternation over applying to MFA programs begins to bubble slightly. For some of us the process has just started, and for others, it may be the middle of the road. Some folks have already taken GRE's (Grrrrr's) some, like myself, plan on going through that grind in November. Some are begging for recs, others have them in hand. Then we have the essays and finally the all important writing samples. Lordy, I swear every time I think I am done with those I turn around and find another typo!
Anyway - misery indeed loves company - so I wanted to revive this thread, and hopefully whip up a community of folks going through, or in the process of applying to and MFA already.
I am applying this winter to 11 schools. All of them top-notch and hard to get into (aren't they all?): Cornell, Syracuse, Michigan, Indiana, Wisconsin, Columbia, Hunter, Brooklyn, Johns Hopkins, UVA, Iowa - yikes! I know, but hey, got to aim big. Samples are being line-edited as we speak (how I wish I did more of that before sending to my recommenders!) Sneaking time in between a full-time job is never fun - but all the sobbing in the world is not going to change that - so
Let's commiserate, share some info, check each other out, encourage and get jealous later on when someone get's into a school you did not, all that good stuff.
Application Time as started!
