ANY new acceptance or rejection letter, guys?
 
wait…they have a directing program?
Ah, I'm sorry, I was confusing them with CalArts/was confused by some applicants saying they applied to a Directing MFA at Emerson. I suppose I meant the Writing for Film and TV MFA.
I got my acceptance letter (via notice to check portal) today, with approval for Advanced Standing (but only 12 credits, or "Phase II" so 2.5 year MFA). No additional letter about scholarship (yet?).
 
Congrats on the approval for Advanced Standing! In addition to my acceptance letter I also did receive a letter about scholarships.
Ah good to know! Congratulations on your scholarship! That letter was posted right in the portal?
 
There was a link to the scholarship letter at the bottom of the acceptance letter.
So interesting how it all shakes out! This is the only school I wasn't offered any funding at all from (emailed to make certain this was true, was told all scholarship letters had been sent). It does seem worth paying attention to, not just pragmatically/financially, but in a "who responds to my work," "where would I actually be a good fit" way. In a way this seems correct, I always had a feeling Emerson wasn't quite right for me. I am declining my offer, hopefully it will make room for another applicant. I love Kathryn Ramey, though!

congrats to everyone. For those of you who got admitted, do you got in with advanced standing as well?

Yes! I got advanced standing and a scholarship but I'm probably gonna go to either Chapman or LMU because of their proximity to LA.
