"VCFA, at the time I attended (2010-2012) offered a low-residency two-year MFA program. Mine was in poetry. I was pleased with the organization and management of the residencies, and the professors are all top-notch writers. Their feedback was meaningful and well-reasoned. It made me a better reader, writer, and the intensity led to a lot of personal growth. Having my master's has had an incalculable effect on my career and earning, even though I now teach slightly outside the writing and literature field. All this said, it's an expensive program. All of my employers have cared that I had my master's, but none have cared that it was fancy and expensive. I'm working on an M. Ed. now and planning on an Ed. D. after that. Those two programs combined will cost less than my two years at VCFA. You get a lot and it's a quality program, but the debt to reward isn't in your favor unless you have some monumental grants and scholarships. I'm glad I went, but I wouldn't necessarily recommend you do it."
