MFA application writing sample Can't Post

I've been pondering what to send as a sample; i sure most people can relate to the nerve racking experience this can be.
Here is something i thought of doing one very late sleepless night: I thought about sending a sample in a foreign language, or maybe incorporating a foreign language into the sample. I don't know? Any feedback on this seemingly crazy notion would be most helpful; i still don't think it's entirely ridiculous but when i woke up the next day i wasn't so exited about the idea.
Again, any feedback/idea/comments/thoughts etc. etc. on submitting a writing sample in a different language will be greatly appreciated

Andy

There is a detailed discussion of this down in the MFA area. That might be a better place to put this question -- after you've read at least part of the thread.

It may be a lot of work, but it's better than demanding that everyone else repeat for you what they've already posted.

This is a community, and a friendly one, but it has its customs. Learning them will help make it a better experience.

Andy,

There is a lot of information in the MFA Forum and that's why it's pretty tightly organized.

Here's a link to the Directory of Topics in the MFA Forum. It will help you considerably when trying to navigate your way through.
