The most prestigious program, hands down, is at U Iowa--called the Writers Workship. The alumni have won 16 Pulitzers, and alumni include Philip Roth, Jane Smiley, John Irving, John Cheever, Marilynne Robinson (Gilead), Michael Cunningham (The Hours), John Berryman, W.D. Snodgrass, Louise Gluck, Kurt Vonnegut (see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Iowa_Writers%27_Workshop_people). You re not guaranteed to be famous if you go there but.you chances are substantially higher. Other top schools for Creative Writing MFA: Boston University, UC Irvine, Cornell, NYU, Johns Hopkins, Florida State, UVA, U Michigan Ann Arbor, Brown, and Columbia.

There are at least 16 MFA programs in the state of New York, most if not all of which have a poetry focus available. There are also low-residency programs you might want to look into, where you only have in-person classes for a few weeks and then go off and write on your own. So if this is really the only option you ve been able to find, I think you need to talk to one of your undergraduate professors and get their advice on how you really need to be conducting this search. That said, MFA programs are designed to be hard to get into: they have to be small, so everyone can get individual attention, and you have to be really good (in a way that the instructors at that particular school recognize as good), or they re not going to believe that you can get editors attention and get published when you finish the program. So if you re imposing a geographical limitation, then you re reducing what are already very small odds. Also, to be perfectly honest, while I realize this isn t a formal application, there are grammar errors here that no English major should ever make, which makes me worry about the care you took with your submissions. Again, talk to your undergrad professors and get their advice. But I think you may need to reconsider just how realistic this plan is, and whether you can get what you need from an informal writing group instead.
