Hey guys! I was recently accepted to the MFA in Production program at Florida State. For me, preparing for the interview was a nerve-wracking process. However, I knew quite a few people in the BFA program and was able to help prepare myself for a few of the questions they asked me.

Hi All :),
I have an interview with FSU's Motion Picture Arts in a couple of weeks, and I wanted to see if anyone here could give me advice on the interview process. How dressed up should I be? What should i bring with me? Any information from past or current students about the types of...
So there are a bunch of wonderful threads for individual schools but there are a few less popular schools I applied to--and I am sure many of you are on the same boat (Boston University, UT Austin, Columbia College Chicago...)
I thought it might be a good idea to start a...
