Actually, Miss Esquire, there is. I emailed Tara Stamm several times about this, and she told me point blank that there were 30 people on the entire creative writing waitlist, MFA + PhD, and that so far they had made 17 offers of admission (12 for the MFA, and 5 for PhD). I also was told through email from another source inside FSU (that I'm not going to name), that among the Ph.D peeps, 3 poets and 2 fiction writers had been accepted so far, and that this was much lower than in years past, and that after the dep't had heard news about the funding situation from the Florida State Legislature, this would determine how many more offers they would be able to give. Could be 10, could be 0, but that's one of the main reasons for the delay, besides the 15 April deadline of course. Suerte Chicos!
