MFA Musings: a poem

An MFA and me, at Chicago State
I believe would be the perfect mate
attending lectures and workshops all day
or in the library, reading Black, I'd stay
Oh, the poetry that I would create
I will not turn in the application late.

Sounds good to me! To answer your question from my blog: applied to 16, accepted to 6, waitlisted at 2.

5 schools may not be too low, it depends on which schools you are applying to. 5 schools with really low acceptance rates is risky. It's really about what you can afford and if it's really urgent for you to get in right away (it was for me when I applied). If you want to post the others you are thinking of applying to, I could tell you what I know from researching schools for myself last year.

I need to figure out which ones have the low acceptance rates. I know UVA is very low. I imagine Virginia Tech is along the same lines. I have no idea about Chicago State, then there's Temple, and then Fresno State.

Some others I have my eyes on, but haven't researched them enough:
* Kansas University
* Arizona State
* University of South Carolina
* Rutgers University, Newark
* Virginia Commonwelth University
* Pennsylvania State University
* University of San Francisco

You may want to check out Indiana University. They strive to nurture diversity. I visited and it's evident. They also offer a joint degree in African-American/African Diaspora studies with their MFA. Just another program to take a look at. Sorry not to subtract anything for you lol

Oh, I will check them out. I'll apply to as many as I need that seem to be a good mutual fit. Thanks. By the way I read one of your pieces. It was about a foster child. I liked it.
