  1. I've just been accepted into a Low-Residency MFA in Creative Writing program at Oregon State. It's great in theory, because I can spend most of the year working from home, while keeping my full time job, and then visit Oregon twice a year for intensive workshops. However, the FUNDING! Because it's not a traditional program, I can't be grad assistant or TA, there's next to no funding for it Also, I'm not in a traditional classroom setting every day, like I was used to in undergrad. Has anyone done this kind of program? Are you satisfied? How are you funding it? I'm applying to other universities too, so maybe they'll have better financial options, but the director of the Oregon program didn't make me feel hopeful.... Now I'm rethinking everything!
  2. I've been accepted into the MFA in Creative Writing at Oregon State University. (yay!) It is their Low-Residency program, so mostly online, which means they don't offer much funding, since I can't be a TA. I'm also applying to Anticoh and UC Riverside Low-Res. I am having a hard time locating funding for such a specific situation. I'm Latina, first-generation graduate, their must be something out their for me, right?? Please help!
  3. My freak out: How am I going to fund this? I got accepted to the MFA in Creative Writing program at Oregon State University. It is a Low-Residency program (these are fairly new) which means I can work from anywhere, do most of my writing online, and then twice a year visit the campus and spend about 10 days writing and attending lectures. (yay!) Most Low-Residencies while convenient, don't offer full-funding :( I'm dying to get my MFA, but have no idea how I'm going to fund the $32K - $51K bill. I know something must exist for me out there (Latina, first-gen grad) but I can't find it! Any suggestions??
