    Admitted but Not Attending (w/o Interview) Chapman Screenwriting MFA Fall 2021

    First-time applicant. I graduated college 10 years ago, so a bit older than a lot of other applicants. I didn't get into film until about 5 years after graduating college. I decided to turn down their offer as I did not receive any scholarship aid and could not afford the program.

    Admitted (Off Waitlist After Interview) FSU - Production MFA Fall 2020

    This is my first time applying. Application process was not exactly smooth sailing. It's always fun when your last letter of recommendation stops answering your emails a couple days before your application's due!
