A Secret

I’m going to let you all in on a little secret: I judge MFA programs based on the quality of the printed materials they send me. I know, it sounds terrible but think about it. What does it say about a school that doesn’t take the time to put together quality materials. I know it sounds arbitrary but with so many programs…it helps narrow things down.

I received a packet from Ohio State University today. It was in the form of a comprehensive handbook. It’s large, has a clear typeface, table of contents, and a sleek cover. I’m impressed OSU. I plan on applying and hope to get one of the fellowships so my tuition will be waived. I also like that MFA students can take the literature seminar courses offered by the English department.
