If you are interested in an MA in Creative Writing, I am finishing mine at Northwestern at night, and the program has been great. Big name faculty come each year, Aleksandar Hemon, Stuart Dybek, Naeem Murr, etc, and they are still taking applications for Fall. The entire program is based on workshop, independent study, a few literature / craft stories, and thesis.

They don't fund, but most people are working professionals with day jobs. What I did was get a job at the university, which then paid 80% of my tuition, so I think the MA cost me about $3,000 total. I know at least six people in the program who work at the university, so that's a great way to go.
If anyone is interested in talking more about it, let me know! I am off to Oregon in the Fall and I'm positive there is no way I would've gotten in there if I hadn't done this program first.
