Entitlement: A User's Guide for the Delusional

Well, if nothing else it would appear we have consensus on the general suckitude of the Columbia MFA program. But let's scratch the surface a little more deeply, and give a think on this:

Was the program really all that bad, or were we simply misguided assholes for participating in the folly that is the MFA? And wasn't it really the promise of that Ivy League degree--the perceived golden ticket to love, happiness & success--which gave us the mighty, mighty sense of entitlement that ultimately became our albatross?

To wit, the folly. Because at least to a certain extent, wasn't it precisely this sense of entitlement that we were paying for when we (or our generous "patrons")wrote those tuition checks?
