Applying only to Stegner. Last day, or rather, last few hours. Panicking as i try to mix and match tidbits of things i've written over the years to have something worthwhile submitting.

Any idea what format the files should be in while submitting online? Pdf or doc? and formatting tips would be HIGHLY appreciated.

Tom said...

quixilver,

don't those online forms usually let you browse and download files from your computer? Seems like most of my apps asked for .doc or .pdf files. It was pretty self-explanatory. Good luck!

Tom said...

So,

just finished all but 1 of 12 MFA applications! Other than sending a few transcripts, nothing left to do. I applied at these schools:

Minnesota (nonfiction)
Illionis-Urbana (fiction)
Iowa (nonfiction)
Northern Michigan (nonfiction)
Idaho (nonfiction)
Montana (nonfiction)
Wyoming (nonfiction & fiction)
U of Arizona (nonfiction)
New Hampshire (nonfiction)
Memphis (nonfiction)
Hollins (fiction/nonfiction/poetry)
Texas (fiction & screenwriting)

Feels good to be done. And now that I just finished my final SOP, I think I've arrived at my best version. Too bad the best one is only going to two schools...

Tom

Karissa said...

@Tom

Did you apply in all three genres at Hollins?

I said...

I'm only applying to 2 schools for fiction.

Arizona
I see people applying to so many schools, but I only want to be in Arizona. I would not enjoy being else where so I am sacrificing..we'll see. I know that it isn't safe applying to only 2 schools, but oh well! We never know...wish me luck!

Tom said...

Karissa,

I did in fact include all 3 genres in my application; the guidelines said to apply in a genre if you wanted, or to send 30 pages of any mix of genres. I think I'm strong in fiction and nonfiction, and I had 2 good poems, so I threw them in, too. I don't consider myself a poet primarily, but the compression and concentration and rhythm carries over to my major genres.

It'll be interesting to see how it works out. Hollins seems particularly open to crossing genre boundaries.

Michener Center
Virginia Tech
Boise State
Colorado Boulder
Colorado State
Old Dominion
Ole Miss
University of Wyoming
Penn State
Bowling Green State

The application process is taking over my life. My cats sit on my laptop in protest. I had a dream that I went to the hospital for a cat scan and I came upon a butcher's shop on my way to the test. In the butcher's shop were skinned calves, happily blinking. I wanted to rescue one; but I was forced to accept an intact chicken. Thus begin the stress dreams.

Adam Atkinson said...

@anthony

Consider keeping SIUC and LSU--they're later deadlines, so you might have more $$ by the time they roll around in 2011. Plus, either program's funding is well worth the app fee!

Laura Maylene said...

Where did I apply?

Nowhere.

I'm a writer without an MFA who's not even applying to MFA programs...but that doesn't mean I don't think about the degree and wonder what kind of writer I'd be with one.

I recently wrote a blog post about my current situation working as a writer without an MFA and the vague sense of anxiety that makes me wonder if I should hurry up and get the degree...or not.

As always, I'm fascinated by reading about other writers' MFA decisions, where they are applying, etc. I wish everyone luck!

Pauline said...

Ugh...This whole process has literally consumed my entire fall!

Ok, I will be applying in fiction to the following schools

U of Michigan
U of Iowa
U of Mississippi
McNeese State
U of S. Carolina
U of Memphis
U of Miami
U of Virginia
Cornell
U of New Hamphire
Emerson
Brown

Brian said...

NC State for fiction! That's the only one, so I hope it works out.

WanderingTree (Sequoia N.) said...

@ Anthony,

I'll second Adam's suggestion to keep SIUC and LSU on your lists and that's not just me tooting my own horn. Both programs are well-funded, provide various editorial/ professional development opportunities, and SIUC is just shy of the top 20 in poetry and LSU is just shy of the top 25. Plus, the app fees for those programs isn't bad at all.

WanderingTree (Sequoia N.) said...

(Cont'd @ Anthony re: Poetry list)

Additionally, you'll have a more well-rounded application list in terms of selectivity and funding.

Mendi said...

I'm taking the two-genre approach, but would probably go to a good fiction program over a good non-fiction one, all things being equal. Anyone else doing this?

Fiction:

Iowa (Writers Workshp)
Southern Illinois
Indiana
Montana
Kansas
Boise State

Creative non-fiction:

Iowa
Arizona
Minnesota
The New School

jreneecummins said...

This is my final application list...some are already submitted, others about to be finished:

The only Low-Res I am applying to is Warren Wilson

Putting all my hope into these 5 (for fiction):

UCSD
San Diego State
UC Irvine
UNLV
Iowa (my long shot, but figured I had to at least try)

Michael Adams said...

I look at these comments and I'm shocked at how many schools some people are applying to. Good luck to you all, though. Application fees had me limited to three:

San Francisco State (my top choice)
Portland State
San Jose State

Lots said...

I'm applying to these schools in poetry:

University of Florida
Florida State University
Florida International University
Florida Atlantic University
University of South Florida
University of Central Florida
University of Miami

Obviously I'm wanting to stay in Florida. Can't we just all find out already?

~Carly

Maryse said...

I'm applying to:

-Minnesota
-Guelph
-Iowa
-Arizona
-New Hampshire
-New School
-Victoria

... All in Nonfiction. I had Columbia on the list but figured it was pointless because, realistically, I won't consider going anywhere if they can't give me funding. I might take New School off the list for the same reason.

Anyone applying to or hear about New Mexico?

jreneecummins said...

My fiction workshop prof recommended I apply to between 10 and 15. I'm limited by my husband's relocation options, but I hit eight and feel fairly good about my prospects....

Urbanist said...

Am I screwing myself by only applying to five programs?

(Fiction)
Hunter
Brooklyn College
NYU
Michener
Unviersity of Florida

The first three are because I should probably stick around here (tho I think any of them would be awesome no matter where I lived). Michener is because I felt like buying 60 lottery tickets. UF is because I felt an almost-mystical pull.

Belina said...

Now, almost done, I finally feel ready to shary this. I am applying to these places in poetry. Good luck all!

Wisconsin, Madison
Michigan, Ann Arbor
Iowa, Iowa City
Arizona State, Tempe
North Carolina, Greensboro
Coloado, Boulder
Virginia, Charlottesville
Cornell, Ithica

Dave said...

Assuming all of my recommenders come through for me, this is where I'm applying:

Columbia College (Chicago)
West Virginia
Virginia
Va Tech
Penn State
Cornell
Minnesota
Western Michigan
Iowa State
Iowa Writers Workshop
UMass

Dave said...

oops, forgot to mention I'm applying to all these places in poetry.

Rupperswil said...

Fiction:

Brown
U Texas Austin Michener
Syracuse
Cornell

Yes, only four. Shoulda typed out the full university name of each one to make it look like a longer list.

Michael Adams said...

Dave, I have the same concern about recommenders coming through. I absolutely hate that we go through all the work of submitting these applications and then it's completely out of our hands as to whether they end up being incomplete. Why do they even need these letters of recommendation anyway? Does anybody ever give a bad one? The whole exercise seems pointless. Sorry for the off-topic rant, but this has caused me a fair amount of anxiety.

Amy said...

@Michael Adams,

Surprisingly, some rec letters are not good. I used to intern at the Iowa Review, and while reading rec letters for a poetry contest, I came across a fairly hostile one from a student's old professor claiming that said student was an immature writer and had a lot of growing to do, not to mention a bit of a pain in the ass.

Who knows if this is the case for graduate school. I would certainly hope not!

jreneecummins said...

OMG! That's scary...

WanderingTree (Sequoia N.) said...

Amy,

That letter sounds like it would say more about the professor writing the recommendation than the student. Generally, there's an unspoken rule that LORs (for anything) have to "recommend". A teacher/ boss/ co-worker etc. can always turn down someone's request if he/she feels that they cannot contribute anything positive (or at least spin words to sound somewhat positive). With that said, also think long and hard about who you ask to write your letters. Will famous person A that you barely know really write you a good letter vs. a neighborhood workshop leader that has known you for years? Is your recommender reliable? Does your recommender really care about you (and students in general)? Is your recommender professional when he/she needs to be? (translation: we're all writers here and we all know that can translate into some big time drama/ craziness).

Leitmotifish said...

So...I am not one to write on this type of site, but as I was doing my applications, I used it to procrastinate alot, and it was also helpful with answering some practical questions (thanks..)

AND I just finished sending my apps, and want to do something fun to symbolyze it.

AND there is something cool about sharing here.

All of this to say here I am being a dork and typing the list of schools I applied to. I am a proud dork...

(For Fiction)

Irvine
Iowa Writers' Workshop
Michigan
University of Florida
UVA
Houston
Arizona state University
Syracuse
John Hopkins

I know they are all super competitive, but if I don't get in this year I guess that's better than getting in somewhere I don't really want to go to.

Keep on posting interesting stuff.
!

Victoria said...

Oh boy, I have a question. For the others applying to UMich: did you have to send your writing sample early enough so that they received it by Dec 24th since they're closed between the 24th and the 1st? If I sent it after the 24th and I see a "notice" was left at their office on the USPS site, does this mean my application will arrive late and therefore not be considered?

Victoria said...

Yes, I just confirmed that I am screwed for Michigan...

Twin said...

Fiction:

UGA
Georgia State
University of South Carolina
North Carolina State
UVA
University of Miami

I'm obviously trying to stay in the South...any other suggestions?

kaybay said...

Twin - there are many good programs in the South, including: UF, FSU, Georgia College and State, Vanderbilt, Ole Miss, Virginia Tech, Virginia Commonwealth, UNC Greensboro, UNC Wilmington, NC State, McNeese, LSU... deadlines are approaching, though :)

Twin said...

Thanks for the suggestions, Kaybay. I got a late start this year, so I won't beat myself up if it doesn't work out.

arby82 said...

Victoria,

Hi, I'm new to the board. I have the same fear as you do about Michigan. May I ask what was on the "notice" that you saw at the office?

And why do you think your application won't be considered? Did you confirm that if a package arrives between Dec 24 and Jan 1 it will definitely not be received?

Sorry, I'm quite worried as well and would appreciate any extra information!

Thank you!

kaybay said...

hey, I hope this doesn't sound rude (or hypocritical, since I answered a question here), but questions about deadlines and schools should probably be posted in the mailbag to avoid confusion and clutter :)

Graduate Dissertation Writing Concerns said...

Feels good to be done. And now that I just finished my final SOP, I think I have arrived at my best version. Too bad the best one is only going to two schools.
