Hey all. Wondering if anybody has had experience with this one.
I'm applying to Iowa for their translation MFA (which is in the comp. lit. dept., not in the IWW). According to Iowa Grad Admissions, you can only apply to one department at a time. Now, I happen to have a poetry writing sample I've already put together for some other schools, and some extra recommendations, and a personal statement that could be easily modified... So I'm thinking, why not apply to the IWW for poetry as well?
I'm wondering if anybody around here every applied to the IWW and to another of Iowa's MFA's not housed in the IWW (translation, nonfic., playwriting), and am wondering how they did it. Right now I'm considering just sending the IWW my poetry sample, my rec.'s, a personal statement, some transcripts, the other forms, and just seeing what happens. (But no fee or grad. app because Grad Admissions told me they only accept one app., one fee per person--no simultaneous applications on their watch, I guess).
Is this worth a shot? Or am I just wasting my time?
