I like this school so far. There are plenty of things wrong with the school, but I believe that to be the case with all institutions/schools. The Staff and cohort are really great and supportive. There are a lot of art schools that are very competitive, and this is not one of them, everyone supports one another.
I am currently in the first year of the graduate program for Poetry. I love it so far. The only thing that's keeping me from giving it 5 stars is that there isn't much financial resources outside of the slim chance of being rewarded a scholarship that you can apply for until you're a returning student.
