Oh no, Padgett Powell is their director (or was, Jill Ciment is taking over soon I believe) and he's a very respected, well-published writer, as are all the faculty there. Anyway, I'm in for poetry, and the best programs for fiction are not always the best programs for poetry, which gets lost in these discussions I think. If I was a fiction writer, Michigan would be hard to beat, because yeah, there are some major names there, and yeah, as a fiction writer, you can actually sell books and make a living that way....which, frankly is never, ever the case for a poet, no matter how successful.

Oh well. It just sucks to have to make this decision in about ten hours. Even when I think I know my gut, I'd like to have time to listen to it a little more...after all, I am a writer, I specialize in brooding, right? :)
