    Admitted but Not Attending (After Interview) LMU Screenwriting MFA 2023

    Pretty long personal statement compared to some places. A lot of choice with the writing prompt which I liked. Had to do a video statement, which was strange and unexpected. But in the end it is a fun way to express yourself once you get into it. I think they like it if you do something outside...

    AFI vs. LMU

    Apart from getting into AFI (Editing), I have gotten into Loyola Marymount University too. It's a 3-year Film and TV Production MFA course, with an emphasis on Editing. Have you heard anything about this? And how is its reputation in the industry? One of the major reasons I am considering this...

    Attending (Admitted After Interview) LMU - TV Writing and Producing 2022

    The application process was pretty easy but I did notice that LMU required more writing samples than other programs that I've applied to so far. Other than that it was pretty straightforward.

    LMU (MFA in Film Production) VS BU (MS in Television)

    I had been accepted for MS in Television at Boston University, but now I have been pulled off the waitlist from LMU. I have always had a film background, but since I have not explored Television, I am open to the idea of exploring the industry. Switching back to film seems hard after pursuing MS...
