I just went on Vimeo to see our competition. It's really nice to watch everyone's "A Change of Heart" projects. You just got to keep changing your search to find more entries. Try, a change of heart AFI, then AFI directing application, etc. You'll find more and more as you go.
I watched some during the holiday. They are really good!

They scheduled me for Wednesday, Feb 13th.
Nice! Good luck and be sure to update your application with that info and please update it again after to let everyone know how the interview went. :)

Directing applicant here still waiting for the interview email. I got rejected after interview last year. It seems like they've stopped sending interviews... fingers crossed.

Hello again all; just wanted to give to an update. The interview is incredible. There is truly nothing anyone can say to prepare you for it because each one seems completely tailored to the person being interviewed. So don't fret, it's all about YOU, which is easy enough to talk about. Just be yourself. It's like a relationship, don't fake anything haha, show them who you are.

Best luck to all.

Hey guys! I sent an email to my application counselor a few days ago and she told me the directing major won't send out interview invitation until March the 15th.

Congrats to Ernst and DJE who received the notification so early! But I guess for the rest of us there's nothing we can do but wait... with lots and lots patient and optimism. :)

From my understanding, March 15th is the Final decision date. If we don't have an interview now, then we should expect a rejection letter.

Really? It was approximately the same schedule each year?

Yes, March 15th is the notifications for acceptance, waitlist, or rejection. They just told me at my interview.

Thx bro! That really clears things out. Guess I'm not the right person they are looking for. 😂
Just curious, do you know what's the notification dates for USC or Chapman or LMU? I wasn't told in the interview so I'm just anxiously waiting.

How did it go? I'll have mine next Monday and don't really know what to expect (I've been reading the thread on screenwriting interviews, but I'm guessing ours are a bit different). I'm interviewing with Jennie Tugend and Zach Smith, has anybody had them as well?

Are you going to fly here to do it in person?
I'm glad you enjoyed your interview! I am slightly less nervous now after reading your latest update. I will be flying in because I want to see the campus.

Also, I'm just curious. Who interviewed you?
