I applied, and I have not been asked to do this. So maybe it does mean something. What does the form look like? Is it different than the financial aid application form?

Also, I did my FAFSA kind of last minute, so that may have something to do with it.

Re: [bunnytutu] isis updates [In reply to] Can't Post

curious, how'd they notify you about having to fill in that financial aid verification form? (email? mail? phone? and when?)

I was accepted @ IWW last weekend with talk of a TAship and I didn't receive any financial aid postcard (though I did fill out the FAFSA).

Is the "FAFSA" that multi-page financial aid packet that asks about teaching experience, etc.?

If you need to take out loans or schools need to see if you're eligible for workstudy, you fill out the FAFSA (it's a federal evaluation).

It's the beginning of a pile of debt, essentially, especially if you move to New York!

Awesome, vmoore! I'm glad you called and passed on that information. I'll start freaking out on about Wednesday, then. I hope they do send rejection letters at the same time. The worst is the waiting! Good luck, everyone!

maybe everyone already knows this, but a friend of mine who knows someone who went to iowa told me that iowa offers fellowships to some of the 2nd yr. students so they can write during the year after they graduate, basically a full year of funding with no other responsibilities. do you guys know about this? sounds pretty darn sweet. i wonder if it's just for fiction writer or if they give $ to the poets too. any info???

Hi Caroline, I'm not sure exactly how many third year fellowships there are, but I do know they award them to both poets and fiction writers.

That's correct. These are fellowships set up by James Michener. Around 8 go out to Iowa students graduating that year (to be used solely to write during the year after they graduate). The fellowships provide full funding for an entire year, assuming you don't live somewhere that's prohibitively expensive like New York City. In addition, around 10 more Michener fellowships are given to students who have graduated within the past ten years. I knew a few people who got these a few years out, and I know they really appreciated having the opportunityto fully immerse themselves in their work again. This is just another nice aspect of the Iowa program, something that people don't often realize.

Just to be sure then regarding ISIS "Advisor" change: we all experienced this? I surely did, but took it as a good sign. Also, just noticed that my phone number on ISIS is incorrect. Perhaps an additional tiny glimmer of hope? Good luck to everyone in their endeavors!
Out of curiosity, anyone apply to SIUC or Northern Michigan for fiction? Those two are the only viable options left for me.


Thanks,
Richard

I don't want to quash your hope, but that ISIS notification was a universal change.

martis,

No, you can live anywhere you want. You get the money in monthly installments over the course of the year.

Re: [Taryn_S] isis updates [In reply to] Can't Post

I was accepted @ Iowa on Feb. 24th via telephone for poetry. They awarded me a fellowship, but I haven't received any follow-up regarding financial aid or anything for that matter (though I have been away on spring break since Friday). Its actually kind of scary because I cant read and reread a phone call; I wish I had physical proof.

i'm sorry to hear that, Liz, but I hope you take some comfort in the ridculous number of applications. i mean, we're talking lottery ticket odds with iowa. that's how i'm trying to look at it at least.

Just rejected via Isis, for nonfiction. They must have just changed the status this morning. Oh well!
