We've gotten through another application year!

Congrats to those who have been accepted but don't be disparaged if you didn't make it in this year. It takes multiple attempts sometimes so don't give up!

Whether you've been accepted or not, EVERYONE please be sure to log your Applications with our application database so we can improve our acceptance data and help other applicants.

Also, if you're willing to share, it would be extremely helpful to future applicants if you could share your application materials with your application as well. They would only be visible to members of the site.

The applications in our database allow really helpful data such as scholarship awarded, accepted GPA, film experience of accepted applicants and more... The more data we have the better it is for future applicants.

Here are some examples of the data that this allows:

Columbia University's School of the Arts Acceptance Rate (All Programs/All Years)
142  out of   459   Admitted
95  out of   459   Waitlisted
Not Admitted
222  out of   459  Not Admitted
Not Admitted

      And here are some screenshots of the additional data that applications in our database allow that Supporting Members can see (for a different program than above):

      If you have suggestions on what other data we should include please let me know!

      If you have any questions on how to log your application or suggestions on how to make the database better please let me know. If you have suggestions on how to make it easier to log your application or other data fields we should include please let me know.

      I'm always open to suggestions on to how to improve the site so please don't hesitate to ask or suggest something.
