Accepted? Rejected?


Well-Known Member


I dunno what to tell you.

When AFI offered me admission so late in the game, it only boosted my ego, it didn't change my decision at all.

But when USC accepted me days after I committed to UCLA, I was a mess. I spoke with both of my film mentors, and they basically said the same thing...if things were the opposite, (in my case, accepted at UCLA after committing to USC), did I think that I would feel as torn up about the decision?

The answer honestly was no, and even with emotions aside, the program at USC was a better fit for me I switched.

Good luck...I know it's a tough decision.
