MFA applications – 2nd round

I’m writing. I’m reading. I’m reading about writing. I’m reading about writing as a writer. I’m writing about writing and reading. I’m doing the work. But I’m not MFA application ready.

I want to be so solid that I’m a shoe in. I want to spend another year thoroughly researching my programs and have a great manuscript ready for the applications. My spirits are lackluster in applying this time around and I’d rather not haphazardly apply in the hopes I’ll get in and then kick myself for not providing myself with more time to hone my work.

I’ve made my decision but am open to suggestions. Should I wait another year to apply or should I apply this year?

  1. You can apply this year and it you don’t get in, you can reapply to the same universities next year, right? I say try your luck! 🙂

    • I’m interested in applying this year but reapplying means more money for applications that I may not have next year. I am still unemployed. Thanks! I will think about it some more.
