2008 - Interview Offers from NYU or Columbia yet?

Don't know if they told you, but when is your interview? Just a ballpark, no need to get too personal in here, 2 weeks, 1 week
Congrats filmfan,

I'm very jealous but you should feel awesome. Did they call you at home, cell phone, email? Did you get a letter as well?

and thanks for the kind words wannabe2
hey wannabe and luke,

i have an interview with afi within the same week so i requested it be on march 3rd.

they called me on my cell phone.

very nice people across the board. i wish you all the best of luck. also, i was told there are 100 other candidates that are being called as well so you all should get interviews soon.
well, if it's even possible my heart is racing faster than it was before and I'm now sweating through my work clothes.
I'm about to have a nervous breakdown
I know what you mean, as soon as I saw that posting I was thinking, does FilmFan's name begin with an A, and can they get to R in one day?

Let's hope.
hahaha...that's exactly what I thought : "can they get to T in one day". I guess that could be good if you're an R and I'm a T. Let's hope
Was meditating that I got a call from 212 area code, and then my cell rang. First was 212!!

Telemarkerter. :(

Dang FF,
You're so lucky. I would kill for them to call me. How much experience do you have? What about your submissions? I hope you don't mind me asking. I have no experience, I borrowed my friend's camera to shoot my movie. Good luck to you, seriously.
And my birthday is today. Getting a phone would have been awesome. But hopefully things will work out.

i was praying the call would be from fsu, but it is great news either way.


dont worry. i was a lot of experience, but that should not matter. i didnt even get my bachelors in motion picture and i am 20.

they just want to see ambition and storytelling. during my undergrad admissions process i was passed over for students who had no experience and later dropped out.

this is why people go to school. its all about potential.

i wish you the best, calliegrl, i have a lot of family in the dc area as well.


Congrats FilmFan!!! ANd best of luck with your interview!

I was wondering if you would mind telling us a little about what you submitted in your visual portfolio- film or stills...if you submitted film pieces, did you submit only one piece or more than one...what kinds of pieces...

just curious...

best of luck once again and heartfelt congratulations...
calliegirl- I know exactly how you feel. Work is a complete waste today and my hand is glued to my cell. FLFilmFan, any more info you could give on your app as well as the phone call would be appreciated (like ernesto said). I realize I sound like worried 10 year old.
Luke. My cell rang and I jumped. But sadly, it was my friend. I'm looking at my cell while at work. I really want to go to NYU more than anything in the world. I really want to get in.
