  1. A friend of mine graduated from undergrad a few years back with her B.S. in Audio Engineering. Unfortunately, once she graduated, she realized she didn't want to work in her major field, and is considering going back to school. As an avid reader and someone who enjoys grammar and syntax, she's considering pursuing an MA in English, but unfortunately doesn't have the means to pay out of pocket for tuition. Are there any fully-funded MA English programs that accept students that don't already hold a BA in English?
  2. I've been looking to apply to some MA programs in English, but due to undergraduate student loans, I need to find fully-funded programs (that provide a stipend). I've found a few--VCU, Villanova, Utah--but not enough of a pool for me to feel comfortable. Does anyone have any suggestions for good, fully-funded MA programs? I'm mostly considering English Lit, but have also been trying to find if there are any fully-funded programs that also offer specializations in Publishing/Editing (either on their own or in addition to English). Thanks in advance, everyone! x

    Waiting for updates on waitlists provides me just enough hope that I'm slowly going mad

    In the same boat here. I was waitlisted for my top choice and although it feels nice knowing I almost made it, I know I can't get my hopes up because there's also a good chance I won't make it in after all of this. (Also waiting on three more schools for their decisions doesn't help ease the stress.)

    Has anyone heard from U of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, U of Virginia, or U of Arkansas? I'm assuming they'd have to get back to applicants soon....right?

    Hopefully good news will come soon! (or at least any news at this point.) Best of luck to you as well!

    Is anyone else in that awkward limbo where you've seen acceptances sent out on the results page, but you've yet to receive any rejections?

    I'm also assuming it's a rejection for me as well. But, maybe there's some hope that Michigan is doing waves of acceptances

    I feel like you're better off. I'm starting to see that there's little hope for me getting accepted anywhere, especially coming right from undergrad, so I wish I wouldn't have spent so much on application fees and waited until I had more "life experience" and more writing under my belt before applying to a bunch of places. But everything works out the way it's supposed to, so I suppose there's that. (Maybe I was never meant to have much money.) I hope your two applications send you good news!

    Is it me, or is has it been really quiet for MFA applicants? I know it's still early, but the suspense is killing me.
  11. Actually, I was hoping to work with Adrian Matejka! (Though Ross is a ray of sunshine.) Has anyone received any MFA rejections from Indiana Bloomington? It seems like most/if not all of the poetry acceptances were sent out last week, and I just think it's strange that no rejections have been sent yet (at least not that I know of).

    Received my first rejection from Washington University in St. Louis about a week ago. I applied to Indiana Bloomington and saw a bunch of poetry acceptances on the results page, so I'm assuming another rejection will be headed my way soon. Based on previous years' results, it seems like most programs don't start sending stuff back until around mid-February, so I suspect this upcoming week is when we'll start to see more activity.
  13. Looks like most/if not all of Indiana Bloomington's MFA poetry acceptances were sent out already, so I'm expecting my rejection letter soon

    Do you think all acceptances have been sent out already or they're just starting the process?
