It's my first time applying to UCLA's screenwriting MFA, Feature Track. I applied with two full-length screenplays. One is a hitman feature, and the other is a drama that follows a director and author. Both are set in Los Angeles.

First time applicant! I graduated undergrad in June 2022 and applied for Fall 2024 entry. I was waitlisted and learned about the decision much later than other programs. I'm really bummed about it as Columbia was my top choice, but I'm going to reapply!
