Congratulations! I look forward to meeting you! @Sunny and I shall see you this summer then along with everyone else on here who chose LMU as well
Congratulations to you too @skycamera !!!!
I actually have a good friend who is finishing her first year in Chapman's Editing program. She seems to really love the program and Dodge has pretty legit facilities. I toured their building with her and her classmates (albeit after a night of drinking at the bar near the campus ) and they seem to have everything you need in a film school.
I will admit that being in Orange can seem like exile, but Chapman is aware of this and they do everything they can to compensate for that through internships and tapping their own alumni network in LA. Plus, the all students work on each other's sets, so you'll get more than just a "dungeon room of editing" experience. I can't speak on FSU, but I will say that it will help to be as close to LA as possible for lucrative job opportunities (especially if you plan to move there after your studies), and Chapman is about the furthest school you could go to in SoCal (besides maybe CalArts??) that's still able to help expose you to professional projects to put your schooling into action. (although I dunno about what opportunities FSU has to offer)
Hopefully this helps. If you can afford it and you don't feel the urge to take advantage of what FSU has to offer instead, I think you'd benefit greatly from Chapman. Good luck in whatever you decide!
I'm glad I was able to help! I'm sure you'll love there... Also, PM me if you'd like me to introduce you to my friend at Chapman. She's a wonderful person and she's from Orange County, so I'm sure she'd be able to answer any further questions you may have.
I'm about to pay the deposit of Chapman's Producing Program today...and it says the program is already full...I was trying to reach Chapman's admission officer the past 30 mins, but in vain....BTW is it normal? I received the "letter" from graduate admission office on Apr 15 and today it says the program doesn't receive any more deposit?
@Caroline_Eleni & @Sunny Hey are you guys planning to live on-campus? I'm pretty confused about the housing scene. I read thatWoot! Excited!
I'm still considering that, but there are only around 150-ish places for Grad students to live on campus. So best bet is probably living off, taking into consideration whether you have a car/how much you can afford/walking distance to campus etc.@Caroline_Eleni & @Sunny Hey are you guys planning to live on-campus?

And have you talked to anyone who is currently studying there? I have to take decisions on a lot of things and i wanted to take some opinions before deciding.
LMU sent out emails for us to register for classes in class groups, so I'm thinking they have chosen all their 26 students??? Not 100% sure though!just got an offer from chapman, directing .
and I knew a few students got their offer from chapman in March , April, and I got mine in MAY....
so i was originally planing to go to FSU, but now seems Chapman is a good option also.
btw, I am still waitlisted on UCLA and haven't heard anything from LMU....

When I had my Skype conversation with Prof. Wheatley she said she would pass my email along to 2 current students for their perspective on studying/living there, but I haven't heard from them yet.
Which schools are you deciding on? Or did you mean deciding between on/off-campus living?
