There is a printed statement on the software packaging that says, "The Software media is distributed on an 'AS IS' basis, without warranty." So, I guess I can't return it.
As other reviewers have mentioned, this is not an "insider's guide to MFA programs." Program descriptions closely resemble what is posted on MFA program websites, and little else. Also, costs for tuition are not listed consistently. Some are listed by semester, others by year, and some not at all. It would have been nice to compare apples to apples.
I was more interested in the writers' colony section, which posts an impressive list of national and international programs, but that's not why I bought the book.
If you buy this book to find an MFA program, it will point you to some websites. And unfortunately, it may leave you asking a few more questions than it answers.

This is the best book I've found on the subject but it's far from great. It gives one short page narratives of about 60 programs and general advice on the application process. Read morePublished on December 10, 2006 by J. Darby
