Hi Abby. This is a somewhat random comment, but I think we went to Albany High together. I'm Katie Stutzman and I graduated from AHS in '97. I'll be starting in the MFA program at Penn State this fall. I'm glad to see that you'll be a contributor here--this blog was invaluable to me during my application process. Best of luck!

Well, abby, i think this page has become a billboard for friends who are looking for you. I graduated in '97 and am looking for a hand full of folks from those pre-internet days.

Hopefully you are the Abby I went to summer camp with over ten year ago. In any case, good luck with your MFA.

Best,
jen
