Re: [Moonshade] MFA Programs Can't Post

Hello All,

I wonder if any of have had any experience with SCAD? I live in Savannah and well it is the only school that has an MFA program here. I am applying there but after hearing all your concerns about a MFA degree netting you a job I am a bit concerned. The MFA as I understand it at SCAD is not comprised of just writing in poetry, but rather it focuses on Business Writing, Writing for the web, Creative Non-fiction and if offers Fiction and Poetry only as electives. I was just wondering are there any graduates from SCAD on here?

not on grand conquests
to gather earthly things
they are little women contrived
to hover over spring.

34 fully funded programmes Can't Post

In the P&W article on 2011 rankings, it says that there are 34 fully-funded programmes. Is there a list of these? Or do I work my way through the P&W list to find them?

Re: [Moonshade] MFA Programs Can't Post

we are in the same boat.... I also sub here in california and it pays $105 a day...I truly enjoy seeing the kids and interacting with them. I started a credential program (here in california single subject credential programs are a year long, plus all the "pre candidate" course work one has to do--so it can take up to 2 years before you start student teaching) but realized that all the red tape that you mentioned simply killed my ambition of being a teacher. there are days, when i'm subbing, that i regret dropping out. those days get worse when i hear of past classmates that have landed teaching jobs, but i don't let them bog me down too much, but it does kinda sting. but the worst days are when the students ask me "so do you want to be a REAL teacher? or just a sub" it's those days that get the best of me

Funding Can't Post

Does anyone have any info about the size of stipends offered to graduate assistants at Cornell, University of Central Florida, and University of South Florida? Most MFA sites contain this info, but I can't find anything specific on these schools' sites.

Mercy is the mark of a great man.

I guess I'm just a good man.
