If it makes you feel better, New School was just ranked by "Poets & Writers" magazine as the #3 nonfiction MFA program.

Nah, it doesn't make me feel better, either. :)

The accolades are piling up. I hear "Delaying Reality" magazine ranked
New School's MFA program quite highly as a top place for trust fund kids
to cool their heels for two years.

In that fine publication, Columbia ranked even higher, though.

Yes. And I was only talking about MFA programs. In the review of all
graduate programs, "Delaying Reality" ranked 327 law schools before the
Columbia MFA at #328.

I have to disagree with that analysis. Certainly, law school buys more time for trust funders before they have to enter the real world, but at least most people graduate law school with some sort of job, even if they hate it and abandon it a few years later to get an MFA.
