I got into the Graduate program for MFA in Writing, and I'd love to go but honestly I'm poor. I'm very poor. I just filled out my FAFSA and it was processed and sent to SAIC. How likely are they to try and accommodate me? Would it be a good idea to visit the school and speak to admissions and financial aid?
