It does seem that the past applicants all found out around the same time as far as I could tell. Accepted and rejected found out the same time. Not all accepted first then rejected.
Did you happen to see around what time they found out based on posts? I’ll look back at it later but just curious if you already saw.

Agreed. Hoping film school will be even livelier, with similarly amiable speakers.
Hehehe, I wonder if there are filmschool.org "cliques", so to speak, amidst film school students

On the subject of waiting — I got -10 hour difference with LA, so it's going to be March 16th for me, actually, when they send out the decisions. Which is another day of waiting.

At this point, though, the potential choice between AFI and NYU is a far bigger issue for me than waiting for those letters. I mean, we've all done everything we could. I know it's too early to decide between those two, before even getting accepted to either, but I just can't help it.

Both great programs- I’d look at where you want to live while in school (and where you want to work after), and think about how much production you want to do.
Good luck deciding when you (hopefully) get into both!

Final 3 days everyone. Hopefully from here on out the wait gets easier. My recommendation, watch some good movies and write some amazing scripts.

Haha, true to screenwriting aspirations, you just love to put on suspense =))
That reminds me of an old Hitchcock quote: "SURPRISE is the application letter being randomly uploaded to the USC portal at a time unpredictable by man or machine. SUSPENSE is the application letter being uploaded by AFI on a predetermined date, with the applicant in complete knowledge of the letter, and dreading its release."

I might be paraphrasing a bit, but that seems like the gist of what Hitchcock was getting at.
