I am attending Tisch for grad film this fall. This is a stupid question but I have two dogs—how much time will I have to go back (I live less than a mile from campus) to take care of them?

Totally valid question (says the girl who has a dog next to her right now). If you have back to back classes, you might be at NYU for up to 6 hours at a time. But if you space out your schedule more openly, you'll have breaks. Highly reccomend citi bike to make things faster too if you feel comfortable biking.
What neighborhood are you staying in? I graduated from the program and one of my classmates had a dog. She lived in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. You spend a lot of time at school (pretty much all day). Getting to Brooklyn usually takes about an hour and people don't usually go home and go back. You could set up your schedule though where you have large gaps in the day. I don't think having pets are undoable but sometimes when we were hanging out after class my classmate would be like, 'I got to walk my dog'. It's kind of a bummer when you're bonding with new friends.
What if you have no experience with screenplay formatting / using final draft?
There’s a lot of free info online on how to write a screenplay! I’d practice, read scripts, and find someone to give you feedback that knows screenwriting. There’s free sites to use like celtx too, I used it before buying final draft.
