Its basic function is to track film schools’ rates of acceptance, minimum GPAs, accepted test scores, in addition to each program's many notification and decision dates.

How has the application process gone so far?

The application process was fine. Enjoyed the interview. Unfortunately was waitlisted but I would strongly consider the program, as the lecturers are very experienced and the program is rigorous and comprehensive.

Alternative schools to strongly consider if applying:

1. AFI
2. Austin
3. USC

Interview Questions & Notes

Conversational style interview. Nothing direct or catching you off guard. More about how you go about writing. Your motivations in storytelling. Mentioned the cost of the program which was slightly odd, as if you were applying as a graduate student, this would have already been considered.
