Are we ranked?

I quote our stunning faculty member, Joyelle McSweeney,

“Fun as football is for all of us poets, can we maybe discard the idea that MFA programs are rivals trying to push each other out of the rankings, rather than allies trying to make as much space in this lousy world for writing and art as we can? Why let the rankings system (which serves only list-makers and list-publishers) make us fight like rats in a cage against each other when we should be fighting in tandem, and futiley, against the CAGE? (cue the smashing pumpkins here)”
Thanks, Professor!
