Here's a question from brooklyn for you:
I've noticed a lot of group discussion and comparing of notes every March and April, as everyone's waiting for acceptances.
My question: is anyone else applying to low-res programs RIGHT NOW? I just put in apps for Bennington, Warren Wilson, and Vermont at the September deadline- to begin in the winter residency. I really have no idea when to expect to hear back from the schools, how the size of the applicant pool in Sept. compares to the number that get in March, etc.
Know it's a lot less common to apply this time of year (from what I see on the blogs). If anyone has experience with this, or is experiencing it NOW, I'd love to hear from you.
Hopefully we'll get some comments for you here. My other suggestion is to point your browser to Erika Dreifus's blog, over at The Practicing Writer. Erika's extremely well informed about low-res programs. Check her out.
Feedback for brooklyn, anyone?
