I've got a tentative list of about 15 schools that needs some narrowing down; the list includes some of your top twenty, as well as a couple that I as of yet don't know too much about. Mainly, the programs at Boise State and the University of Idaho. (I really like the state!) Other then what I found on the program websites, they seem pretty mysterious to me. Do you--or anyone else out there--have any information?
CiC, I have a friend who went to Boise State, liked it a lot, then published her novel soon after her program experience. I like that town too. I wouldn't mind living in Boise. Lots to do in the outdoors, and I like that funky downtown.
I really don't know anything about the U of Idaho graduate program, but maybe some of our readers do. And perhaps someone will have further insights into Boise State.
