    Attending (Admitted After Interview) Columbia Film MFA - Fall 2022

    Columbia's deadline was the last of any of my schools, which gave me time to hone the application. The info session I attended was a tad off-putting, but the curriculum seems good and I appreciate the inclusion of a film treatment in the requirements.

    University of Utah vs University Of New Orleans?

    Hello, Today I received my acceptance letter from the University of Utah and the University of New Orleans. Those are the only schools I applied to. Now I am confused about which one to choose. Both gave me a good financial package. Any suggestions about which one is a better program? Thank you.

    I'm applying for MFA Film at NYU, AFI (directing) and Columbia. I have a few questions about the personal statement and the general portfolio :))

    I'm an applicant from London and have very little guidance about the process in general. I have been seen differing advice online about the personal statement - one side of the spectrum is that it should be heavy on academic intent (the kind of work I want to do later in life as well as at the...
