Since I am always bowled over by the insights and...

    BA and MFA difference?

    I was just wondering what are the differences between film undergrad and grad studies, more towards USC. I already have an undergrad degree from the UK in a different subject and I'm trying to decide on wether to get another Bachelor degree or a Masters. Both of the courses are very similar on...

    Denied (w/o Interview) Film/Video MFA / CalArts

    This was the most intensive and earliest application, and I did NOT budget enough time. Submitted what I felt were incomplete/unpolished essays right at midnight, yikes.

    Declined Admission (After Interview) Cinematography MFA / Feirstein Graduate School of Cinema (CUNY Brooklyn College)

    Received an email for an interview, asked to send an image to discuss. Interview was a little odd--I really couldn't tell if they had reviewed my application or remembered who I was, so I wasn't sure if I should or shouldn't repeat things I had written. There was no mention of my portfolio at...
