Congrats! That is awesome. :)

FYI we just launched a new feature that is great for accepted applicants and that is our new private group threads feature which allows you to create private threads that only people you invite or grant access to can see. It's a great way to meet fellow classmates if you want to create a "USC Attending 2024" (or similar) private thread. The forum to do so is here:

Full instructions here:

Introducing Private Group Threads -  create private threads to meet your fellow classmates (similar to GroupMe)

Thanks to our wonderful Supporting Members we've been able to launch the new Private Group Threads feature. This allows you to create private threads that: Only FilmSchool.org members you authorize can see. (not even FilmSchool.org staff - unless content is reported as spam or inappropriate)...

Congrats again!!! 🎉🎉
