My main question is in the title, specifically, is the collaboration and internship opportunities / acceptance rates at competitive shows/studios comparable to a more renowned school like UCLA? Or even AFI?
I have had interviews with these three schools and LMU has already given...
Hello from Phoenix, AZ! I was accepted to the LMU Writing for the Screen program and would like to meet others who are in it/are headed there in the fall.
Glad to have found this resource!
I'm applying to LMU, DePaul, UCLA, Texas, Chapman, and maybe Boston U for MFA in screenwriting programs, and noticed that there are pages posted for scholarship opportunities on each site, but I'm unsure exactly what I could get upon applying, particularly at UCLA... they have a whole page...
I have made the decision that I am definitely best off by placing myself in the LA area for graduate school and have not yet heard back from AFI, but hopeful. Which program, between LMU and AFI, would be considered the best for somebody going to make connections and gain the best experience as a...
So I did a lot of extensive research on both schools since I and a lot of others got accepted into both programs. Here's what I've gotten from both schools as pros and cons:
LMU (about $20k per year for 3 years) Approximately $60k in total
Chapman (about $42k per year for 2 years)...
Hello fellow USC screenwriting hopefuls!
So the time is upon us again. I've just spoken to the Cinematic Arts dept. today and apparently applications were sent out for review yesterday - so... yeah. It's begun.
This is my third time applying, USC is the dream school for screenwriting, but I've...
Hi guys, I'm planning to apply to a film school for a MFA in Screenwriting, but I'm not interested in the big four (USC, UCLA, NYU, AFI) because they're too expensive and competitive. My plan is to build industry connections without going into a shit ton of debt. I know film school isn't...
It looks like my choice for 2017 is going to come down to LMU or BU - I am waiting to hear back from a few other schools, but they are long shots.
I know and understand the significant differences between the schools themselves, and how the campus and city life would be different. There is a...
LMU Film & TV Production - interviewed and waiting
Chapman TV Writing & Producing - interviewed and waiting
Columbia Directing/Screenwriting - interview scheduled
UCLA - Production/Directing - haven't heard anything since submitting

You should also create an LMU Writing for Screen 2019 thread if there already isn't one. I'll see about contacting some people who are there who...
Well I got into Chapman yesterday for Screenwriting, and considering I got turned down by AFI today, there is a pretty good chance I will be going to Chapman in the fall now! I just have to hear back from LMU now to make a final decision.
Applied to 5 screenwriting programs (specifically feature writing if there's a TV/feature writing program difference).
USC - Waiting: probably out if hear nothing back tomorrow lol
AFI - Interviewed with fingers crossed
LMU - Interviewed with fingers crossed
Chapman - Don't do interviews for...
So I discovered this site a month ago, and have been voraciously reading the posts here and been gleaning lots of useful information as I consider my upcoming applications to film schools. I wanted to throw down my base profile, and get some thoughts and feedback about the...
I applied to 9 programs (all Screenwriting)
UCLA- No Interview, probably out
USC- The waiting game
LMU - No interview, chances are good that I’m out
Columbia- Interviewed, waiting with fingers crossed
AFI- Interviewed, anxiously waiting for March 15th to...
Would be very interested if anyone could comment on collab between screenwriting and producing students too (accepted/considering Production MFA for Fall '19)... I will say it looked like the screenwriting department is more upfront about the internship opportunities/program than the production...
