Here is a link to a great piece of information on MFA programs. It is the top 50 programs in the state and includes information such as cost, teaching load, GRE requirements, rankings, funding availability, selectivity, language requirements and application costs. It is an amazing resource.

Re: [Orgoglio] Editorial/writing [In reply to] Can't Post

Hello- New to Forum- Hopefully this is an acceptable forum to address my questions.
I just completed my first MFA in Children's lit. and would like to go for a second MFA in fiction/non-fiction. I am turning 24 yrs old.
Should I list my first MFA on my application to my second MFA? I have heard that some MFA programs won't even consider people seeking second MFAs. Is this true? Does it depend on the MFA program. My dream schools are Columbia and NYU. I am going for a different concentration. Also, my first MFA was a large part of what I have been doing for the past two years, and I feel like omitting it will give the impression that I have not been working on my writing. I also may need to use a professor as a reference. I just really don't know what to do! Whether I should list my MFA or not. I am eager to get a second MFA as I feel children's lit is so specialized, but I don't want to hurt my chances by either mentioning or not mentioning my degree.

What do you mean by "list"? Most (all?) schools are going to require transcripts from every school you have attended, so you don't have much choice with this.


Be regular and orderly in your life, that you may be violent and original in your work. -- Flaubert

You don't have enough debt? I would think long and hard before getting a second MFA, which will qualify you for a job that pays about the cost of one year in an MFA program.
