    Applied UT Austin MFA in Writing (Michener) - 2024

    When I submitted it, I felt like my statement was either great or a dumpster fire... so there is that. Other than that, though, I submitted the same sample as for the Screenwriting MFA, so not too many new variables here. I do, however, have a special interest in theatre (the main character of...

    Applied UGA MFA in Film, Television and Digital Media - 2024

    Having taken place a few weeks after the initial three, this one wasn't so bad. I submitted my main application and statement on the 15th and actually didn't email in my supplementary materials until the 18th, but the 15th is just "priority," and they technically accept applications until...

    Applied NYU MFA in Dramatic Writing - 2024

    Very much appreciated the brief extension from December 1st to December 3rd, having applied to Michener and UT's Screenwriting MFA also. Beyond that, pretty simple and standard application process (singular statement and full-length sample), and fingers are being crossed.

    Applied Northwestern MFA in Writing for Screen and Stage - 2024

    It seemed to ask... a lot compared to everyone else (three statements and a synopsis in addition to the sample is woof), and that was bit stressful. The program, however, is my first choice (as of right now and for much of the application process), so I appreciated having more room to express...

    Waitlisted (After Interview) UT Austin MFA in Screenwriting - 2024

    Just fine! Submitting Michener on the same day was a bit stressful, but I got it done — LOL. + I was pleasantly surprised to receive the interview request, but we will see what happens. 😁👍

    Northwestern Documentary Media MFA - 2024

    Has anyone else applied to NU? I was looking at last year's thread and it seems that they reach out for interviews around this time.

    Interviewed Columbia University - MFA Creative Production, Fall 24

    The process went okay. I think it was very simple and most of the requirements were documents that I had already prepared for other unis which is why it made it easier for me to re-submit them here. I wasn’t planning on applying to Columbia because of how expensive it is but I decided to try my...

    Interviewed MFA Cinema and Television Directing - Columbia College Chicago

    The application was a bit lengthy compared to other universities I applied to. But overall, everything went okay. CCC quickly responded to the application submission, so I wish I had applied earlier in Nov-Dec because they admit students on a rolling basis and I think I missed out on the chance...

    Columbia College Chicago Interview

    Hey guys! So I received an interview email for the MFA in Cinema and Television Directing program at Columbia College Chicago and I was wondering if anyone could help me with what questions they usually ask in the interview. Any tips and suggestions would help too. Thanks!

    USC MFA Advice - What do you do during the day?

    Hi there, this is pointed towards current/alum USC SCA MFA students. Bonus points if it was in Writing for Film and TV. I've heard that many of the classes are held in the evening due to the professors working 9-5 jobs in the industry. What about you? What do you during the majority of the day...

    MFA Program Assistantships?

    Hi all, I've applied to four MFA Screenwriting programs - USC, MLU, Chapman, AFI - and I am curious if any alum/current students have heard anything about graduate assistantships/work-study. If it is offered, what role was it? What did you teach?

    FYI: Feirstein Grad School introducing "Live Action Filmmaking" track in 2024-25 academic year

    Hey all, I'm a 3rd-year MFA student at Brooklyn College's Feirstein Graduate School of Cinema (its a 3-year program, so this is my last semester!) and since I'm one of those people who likes to look up what people online are saying about their school, I came across a few threads here about...
