i've been reading this board for a while, but haven't posted until now. so, hello! i'm from brooklyn, and i write poems, and i'm applying to 12 mfa programs for poetry this year.
i'm trying to get my recommendations organized, and finding that certain schools make things a little bit tricky. one of the programs i'm applying to is umass amherst, and i was wondering if anyone else was confused about how many recommendation letters they want? on the general graduate application, it says "at least two, consult the instructions for your program," but (of course) on the mfa program site, i don't see any instructions about how many letters to send. if anyone knows what's going on with this, please let me know.
i'm also generally confused about how necessary the accompanying recommendation forms are, but that's another story.
