    Applied NYU Tisch Graduate Film MFA - 2022

    This was my third application completed so far and it was by far my favorite. NYU's directions were simple and straightforward, and I had fun writing the requested pieces. I adore NYU's program (and location, since I already live in and love NYC), so I'm really crossing my fingers for this one!
