If your current ultimate goal is to live and work in Los Angeles, would it make more sense to attend a school that requires you to borrow more money but is located in LA, or to attend a school that requires you to borrow nearly no money whatsoever but is not located in LA?
Put another way...
Hey folks! I'm glad to have found this website, it's been a great resource since I've decided to go to grad school. Currently, I am preparing my application for the directing program with UT Austin.
I know they don't do interviews, and that the application is very important. I feel very...
First time applying.
Technically, I wasn't denied admission. I submitted to michener as well as the radio department and the same comittee that helped select the screenweriters in the radio department, helped select the michener screenwriter fellows as well. So since I got into michener, I am...
I'm looking to chat with someone who is attending or has attended UT Austin for the MFA (especially in Screenwriting, but all departments are good), so that I can best prepare my application. If anyone is willing to have a chat, or if you know someone who went and who I can hit up...
Hey there people. This is Sachin. I'm a software engineer working in the Bay Area aspiring to be a filmmaker (I know it sounds weird :D). I didn't find any thread for UTA so thought I'd start this. Super anxious to hear back from UTA. Anyone else on the same boat? Would love to say hi to fellow...

The MFA program in Film and Media Production at UT embodies the fiercely independent spirit for which Austin’s filmmaking community is renowned. The select group of students from all over the world who join our program share a passion for great stories, a willingness to work hard, and a...
Hello everyone! My name is Ryan and I'm a high school senior who is located in Woodstock, GA ( half an hour from ATL) and I'm looking for help with college. It's a long story, but I botched my chances of going OOS as a freshman because I didn't put college on my priority list until, well...
Has anyone else applied? Production or Screenwriting? Thoughts/concerns about the application process?
Any current students with advice or thoughts on the program and/or the city?
Good luck to everyone!

I wanted to share a short, somewhat fascinating, story with everyone about my application process with the University of Texas at Austin. Just to get this out of the way, I applied to many schools, had interviews and ultimately decided on Columbia. This isn't "sour grapes" by any means. If...
Wanted to share my singular Directing MFA video portfolio item. I submitted only this film (or portions of the film) as my portfolios.
As of today (4/19/16) I have had:
Just as a note, I am not a very strong academic...

Anyone else attending UT Austin this coming Fall?
Thought it'd be a good idea for us to get to know each other before we arrive Austin! : )
I received admission back in February, and have just decided to go!
In reading up on schools, I've singled out these 3 as especially appealing to me. But when it comes to descriptions and testimonials, I've found things are inevitably painted with a broad brush. So to get a better sense of what the programs are like, I wanted to ask two very specific sets of...
