Hi everyone! Happy application season!

My names Harriet, I'm from Canada and I have so many questions about applying to film school it's hard to wrap my head around them all.
I'm applying to 5 different schools, but Columbia is my top choice.
I was wondering if any current Columbia students are able to shed light on common mistakes made in the 10pg screenwriting portion of the application. Cliches, problems with tone, or just general mistakes that seem to pop up over and over again.
Also, does anyone know when the final date for applying will be released?
Thank you!!
