Sorry, I forgot to respond to you! Did you make your decision?
For me, personally, the decision was easy: I received a good offer from Columbia, and only one other acceptance, un-funded, from a school I was no longer really interested in. BUT, these are a few things I like about Columbia, that may likely have pushed me in their direction, if I had had a real decision to make: (1) I like the professors. (2) I love that they offer all those interesting seminars. I like that they're in the department, so they're geared toward writers, but that there are a ton of choices, so it's not like everyone is in one mandatory craft seminar. I like that we take a lot of courses. (3) I like recent graduates of the program. (4) New York!
Tuition for 2008-09 is $41,000. I think it will go up a little next year.
