    Hello! I’m an Alpha alum (from back in ’05 and ’06), and I’d like to chime in by saying that yes, it’s expensive. However, there are some partial scholarships available for students who can’t afford the entire tuition. I wouldn’t have been able to go without financial assistance. So don’t let money discourage you from applying! It was one of the best experiences of my life to date, and so worth every cent that I *did* have to pay.

    (Also, thanks for posting, Cory!)

    I’d definitely go if I got the money. $995 dollars ain’t cheap, so if you can’t attend like me you can still find online resources for free.
    I’m actually writing speculative fiction in blog format. Every weekday a new post. It’s postcyberpunk. Anybody doing similar things feel free to exchange ideas with me.

    I guess I’m not teen any more. But I wish i did something like it while in school.

    ATM I don’t edit much. They are more or less mental puke.

    Alpha offers financial aid, too! I went in 2007 on about a half scholarship.
