AFI 2021 Application - Narrative Statement formatting (1 Viewer)

Hello !
I am currently applying to AFI Producing MFA. As a French applicant, I am not familiar with American application statements, so I just had a very basic question about AFI's Narrative Statement formatting.

Do you think it is expected to use a "Dear madam, dear Sir /.../ Yours faithfully" letter format, or can I just go on straight with my text (which would allow me to save 4 precious lines !)

Thank you very much for your answers, here and on other threads,

Denis

Hi Denis, Bienvenu!
For Narrative Statement (or Statement of Purpose, or Personal Statement, in other schools), you do not need to write it like a letter.
In America, it is standard to format this document like an essay.
So absolutely, skip the Dear Sir/Madam, and dive into a great opening line! :)

Best of luck~
