However, according to the applications in our database, FilmSchool.org users have a much higher acceptance rate: 65% for Film and Media Art MFA students, 52% for Writing for Film and Television MFA students, and 100% for all BFA/BA* program students. (*currently only 6 undergrad applications in our database as of this writing)
Thanks to our Application Database, we're able to calculate the actual Emerson College acceptance rates and tabulate additional data, including: accepted applicant demographics, prior filmmaking experience, lowest accepted GPAs, test scores, and more.
Our admissions statistics for the programs also contains other useful data the lowest accepted minimum GPA, lowest accepted SAT, ACT, GRE, TOEFL and IELTS scores, and much more... however that data is only available to Supporting Members. FilmSchool.org is 100% ad free so Supporting Members are literally what makes this site possible. Thank you!
