Wow, congratulations! Getting admitted without interview must feel so cool!
Awesome, things really paid off, so happy for you! Feel like we've been on a similar journey but for my 3rd cycle I applied to 7 MFAs because I was at my wit's end.

I remember reading your work before too, you've kept writing and have improved for sure! Congrats again :)
Thank you so much for sharing on here and on your AFI application thread. It sounds like you had a wild experience. Your writing samples are incredible. The autobiographical character sketch is so good.

I would die to go to USC but I did work on several short film projects with AFI students in the past and they run a very professional, very tight ship. One thing that I love about their program is that your writing projects are definitely going to get made and not by you and a few friends with a DSLR. The productions are all top notch with professionals and the final products typically turn out beautifully.
