To those on this board2009-08-09 08:49:27 by seeking_an_MFA
There seem to be a few people here who are thinking about getting an MFA and the advice given is often shoddy. So here is some from someone on the inside.
1. Cost: Don't let cost keep you from applying. The MFA is the terminal degree for studio art and many schools will cover your tuition and give you a stipend or TA. A lot of the time, programs won't even accept you if they don't feel that you are worthy of funding.
2. Where you go is important: There are many fine MFA programs in both state schools and private institutions but you need to make the right choice

Other than be a novelist of course.
Is this degree enough to get a job writing scripts for TV series or other forms of entertainment like video games?
Also, how difficult would it be to find a job with such a degree?
While the last poster makes some good pts, I think you should follow your passion while making sure you have an "out". What do I mean? Well, have a plan B should plan A not work out the way you wanted. If you ha …ing to do anything. There are a lot of people with writing degrees just like there are a lot of people with law degrees that don't end up practicing law. It's up to you to make the connections and make yourself stand out.
