After all, MFA grads are fairly easy to spot. For example, if you have an MFA degree, you usually teach at the college level for at least a few years; you have an incredible support system; you’re well read in both the classics and contemporary work; and if you’re worth your salt, Stranger Than Fiction with Will Ferrell and Maggie Gyllenhaal means more to you now than it did before you entered your writing program.
[No to all of this. I hope this is sarcasm. Girl, please. Incredibly support system…where the hell did you go to school? Clearly, I’m bitter. It’s cool -d*]
