    Admitted but Not Attending (After Interview) MFA Production (Cinematography) - Florida State University

    Overall, the application went okay. It was quite lengthy and a bit intimidating at the start but once you start with your essays, it gets better. I would recommend to start early even though I completed mine in like 15 days because of all the other applications. I think getting a head start...

    Admitted (After Interview) MFA FSU

    The interview was virtual, because I'm an internacional student, but it was great. They asked me about my personal statement and portfolio, why I chose them, and I made a few questions about the school. The two of them were kind and fun to chat with.

    Attending (Admitted After Interview) FSU Screenwriting Fall 2023

    First time applying. This app had a few unique prompts that I enjoyed writing. All of the samples are fairly short, so I'm not sure what they're looking for exactly. I'm in Florida, so I would love a program in-state.

    Denied (w/o Interview) FSU Screenwriting MFA - Fall 2022

    First time applying and got rejected without an interview. I asked for some feedback and they didn't say anything very specific. They said there was a high number of applications this year and that they can only admit a maximum of 8 students per year.

    Does anyone have any idea what the FSU interview for the writing program is like? I'm waiting for mine to be scheduled and am really nervous. What kind of questions do they ask?

    Interview Scheduled FSU Production MFA

    It was super simple, just wasn't sure about the video essay. I submitted two different narrative films to my portfolio, a short film script, and my letters of rec were from former professors.
