    Yes, I'm planning to get these forums (especially for MFA ) going in the summer, but in the meantime, do you have any requests? Actually, there's already an LSAT forum.

    Re: New Forum Advised

    Well what about a catch all "Liberal Arts" Grad school to cover things like History/Romance Languages/Literature that isn't MFA...

    Then one for Clinical medicine (Med School, Nurse practitioners- I guess you could include Public Health though it isn't always clinical and now they have the MHA it definitely isn't clinical...)

    Maybe one for Education as that seems to also be somewhat specific.


    Ok, I think I've just displayed that I am not entirely brilliant, but those are some ideas of divisions that I think are reasonable. maybe

    Sidharthskumar- I think part of the problem is that there are not a lot of MFA people on this site. For example- if you were to post in the Grad school admissions- "Anyone going for an MFA" Probably everyone interested in the MFA would reply, but there still would not be as many as the ECE or what not...

    I think MsDemeanors divisons are OK. I'd put the Physicians in a different category as they have make the MCAT and whereby would have specific discussions about the test.

    The Phd in Education is a lot different than engineering.

    I think also that a catch all for liberal arts would be a good division.

    Okay, give me a couple days. Things are kind of busy right now (our summer programs start tomorrow!).

    FWIW, I will probably make more general categories as opposed to narrower ones; I think that works better for an exchange of ideas.

    That sounds great...a general forum would definitely be helpful . Seeing as there are so few of us, I really appreciate the fact that you intend to start a separate forum
