I'm applying to quite a few MFA (Creative Writing) programs on the west coast. I was hoping there might be a few of you out there who have tackled this dreaded process and would be willing to impart some advice. I'm currently staring down a blank sheet of paper in a vain attempt to make my "Statement of Purpose" write itself. So far it has not worked, in fact I think the obscene number of paper cuts on my fingers is a sobering indication I've lost many a battle, if not the war.
Any horror stories from the grad school application process? Anything at all, I just need some more fodder for my lil procrastination machine.
