Hey napk132! I've also been lurking for the past couple of years and have decided that this is my year! It's nice to know someone is in the same boat! Good luck! :)
I'm a fiction writer and have read Seth's blog, watched the Youtube videos and read the MFA Handbook. I think with that advice in mind, funding, is by far, most important to me, so accordingly I'm hoping to be able to afford to apply to 15 schools. I also think that I prefer 3 years to 2, but I don't want to discount programs at Iowa and Michigan, so I've included some 2 year schools on my list. I'm pretty open to location, but have eliminated places like Florida and Arizona as being too hot.
My list as it stands now (16 - need to eliminate 1, I think):
Indiana - Bloomington
University of Illinois
* I'm also considering replacing a couple of the 2 year schools with University of Minnesota and Louisiana State, as I've heard good things.
Any thoughts on additions, subtractions or the list in general, would be greatly appreciated! Happy Application season to everyone.
