Grad Schools

I’ve just started looking at MFA grad schools and taking the GRE. I haven’t finished my BA yet, but I’m at that point if I don’t do my research and prep, I’ll be screwing myself over. The following are the schools I am the most interested in (alphabetical order):

  • Hollins University
  • North Carolina State University
  • Oregon State University
  • Syracuse University
  • University of Florida
  • University of Miami
  • University of Oregon, Eugene
  • University of South Carolina, Columbia
  • University of Tennessee, Knoxville
  • University of Virginia
  • University of Wyoming
  • Vanderbilt University
  • Virginia Commonwealth University
  • Virginia Tech

For my MFA, I’ll be focusing on poetry and if I can sneak it in, then I’ll try to do a little comic studies. The schools listed here are based simply on the parts of the country I am interested in living in (except University of Wyoming–a friend got his MFA there) and how much funding they have to offer. Over the next few months, I am going to be looking at the faculty and what they are writing and if they are people I am interested in studying under.
