Thanks again, Pongo. I did actually decide to talk to an American friend today, who's well acquainted with some of my writing, purely for some advice about the schools and areas she thought would be good/interesting... I realise now that my issue is that I'm starting from the very basic level of needing an interpreter for US state acronyms, let alone needing advice regarding the various application processes!

What I might do is just compile a list of MFA programs in which I might be interested, purely working from their websites, and then explore the forum from there. Once I know a little better what I'm asking about, I'll try and find someone a little closer to home to have a chat to about the whole thing. It was actually just a colleague that mentioned the course to me, as her daughter is planning on doing a similar thing.
It's funny that you mention the Rhodes scholarship, as I'm in the rather daunting process of considering applying for that, too... I feel like I need to dedicate a whole year of my life purely to research and applications. If only the world had a pause button!
Anyhow, thanks again for the warm welcome... realising it's possible to interact with you lovely helpful types is enough encouragement to get me going for now.
I am Sam. Sam I am.
