    Is it worth it to enter film school online for the 2020/21 academic year?

    I am currently deciding if I should accept my enrollment at the UCLA Professional Screenwriting Program, considering it will all be online now.

It’s not full tuition, but it’s going to be a lot less debt than USC, which is obviously a major concern of mine. USC really sold their connections (both to the...
