    THE BEST Film School!
    5/5, 5 out of 5, reviewed Jun 25, 2017
    • + USC SCA has a ton of resource.
    • + Amazing faculty, equipment, infrastructure and amazing classmates aka future collaborators.
    • + Plus being a part of USC, there is just a ton of advantages in itself.
    • + Even the campus is breathtaking, which means you got a ton of shooting spots!
    • - Not everything will be given to you, some expect that, but do know that you need to put in some effort too.
    I have finished my first semester and it has lived up to my great expectations. The semester just blew past me. There was so much to do and so much to learn! I just can't wait for the next semester to begin.

    USC School of Cinematic Arts IS definitely the best film school.

    Great Admitted Students Day
    5/5, 5 out of 5, reviewed Apr 9, 2017
    I just went to their graduate admitted students day, and needless to say, it's pretty understandable why they continuously rank top 3 on every Best Film School list. Friendly and knowledgeable faculty, committed students, and they had pulled a nice, diverse group together for this coming year which is very important to me as a filmmaker. Not sure where I'm going yet, but definitely impressed!
