I just posted this over at the MFA blog, but I received an email at around 6:30 accepting me into Western Washington's MA in Creative Writing. Very strange form email with almost no information from the graduate school. I know I should be thrilled-- this is my first offer after two years of applying-- but it seems extremely unreal. And with no information at all about funding... I don't want to get my hopes up. I'm almost scared to tell anyone. Maybe it just needs to sink in. Or maybe I should email the department... I don't know! :)
I guess I should assume that you applied to the program. If not, then that is frikkin' strange. Also, make sure it's not the Sierra Leone or Nigerian branch of Western Washington U. My inbox is full of spam from those two countries.
In any event, congratulations!
And, of course, there's the whole debate about MA vs. MFA, which I won't get into.
