kd6, thanks for the response!
And I agree, FSU's program is great. The campus had wonderful resources too! I loved the warmness from the admissions committee/faculty. My visit there was really pleasant.
Now I'm having a hard time deciding because I did get into some other (non film-related) programs at NYU and USC (with partial funding!), which makes me want to just wait it out and reapply to their film schools again in their future. But I'm also afraid that if I turn down FSU's offer this year, I'd be missing out on a big opportunity... ah well, sorry for rambling.
Anyhow congrats on your acceptances too!
Hey you guys! What a cool thread, wish I could find out earlier!
Just got an offer from AFI - production design programme. Anyone who is going to AFI this year? It will be sweet to get to know some of my future school mates And good luck to everyone who's still waiting!
The way I see it, film school is a big commitment in terms of money and time. If you think you'll be better prepared for another stab at the NY/CA schools next year (and I'm sure you will go strength to strength!), I think you should seriously consider that. There's probably nothing worse than wishing you had.
My two cents
Thanks so much for the advice. It was really difficult to turn down FSU, but I made myself do it. It came down to the funding as well.
Feeling relieved though now that it's done and over with.
Hoping to re-apply in the future
Congratulations to everyone who's been accepted in the past week. And to everyone who is still waiting to hear, I hope you all hear some news soon!
I had a Skype conversation with Professor Wheatley at LMU on Tuesday to chat about the program/school and to answer any questions that I had. I had a ton and she answered them all She also informed me they were awarding me a Dean's Scholarship for $5000. I had been leaning towards LMU anyway, but our conversation confirmed my decision.
As I haven't quite made my mind up yet about which direction in the film industry I want to pursue, I think a Film Production course is better for me than a specialised Sound Design course. I paid my enrolment fee yesterday to LMU, and I'm so excited! I look forward to meeting everyone else who also accepted LMU
