Thank you for your thoughtful comment!

This is true! I concede that I am giving the MFA a tough time; I guess I'm the kind of person who cares a lot about what you get from the input to the output. For example, with my English degree, I learned a ton of Literary history/theory that I treasure until this day from professors who I deeply respect.

I think it depends on what works for you, and I'm the kind of person that likes to learn things from professors who put their blood, sweat, and tears into becoming their respectable positions and sharing that wisdom with students. That's why I said it's challenging to learn new things from MFA when it's already inside of you as the writer. MFA's are useful to help you unlock that potential but is the cost worth it?

Perhaps they should consider lowering their prices or have a trial run before you commit all the way through?
