    We can tell our stories here? We did the same for UCLA, and it paints a good picture of the prospective student body.

    I'm 26, from Mumbai, India. Practiced law here for 7 months before I realized that I had become Kafka's K. Been writing since forever, been addicted to movies for almost 10 years now. It's my dream to write for Hollywood features.

    Hi everyone, this is my first post! Thanks for being such an awesome community that I'm so glad I found. I'm 23 and living in New Orleans. My background is in political science and poetry, and I want to write for TV dramas. I'm deciding between the screenwriting programs at LMU, Chapman, and AFI, but I'm strongly leaning towards AFI.

    Hello :) I'm 24 from Virginia. My undergrad degree is in biology and I'd love to write for both TV and film. I'm leaning strongly towards AFI.

    Hey guys I'm 25, from Accra, Ghana. Worked in IT for a short while, now in marketing. Ultimately planning to move back home and start my own production company. Still waiting to hear back from Kino Eyes (a european film program) but seriously considering AFI.

    @Heisenberg91 I'm guessing you've seen Chaitanya Tamhane's "Court"? Really brilliant film!

    Hey, I actually haven't watched court yet, but it's on my list. Two brilliant movies I saw recently are ' I, vitelloni' and ' the last picture show'.

    Just seeing this! Great idea.

    I'm 26, live in NYC, work at HBO in their marketing department and I'm a stand-up comedian at night. I've accepted for AFI Producing and I really can't wait get out there. I'll be driving from NYC -> LA around mid-July to give myself time to settle in. I know a lot of people who attended and graduated from AFI so it was my top choice.

    Goal would be to produce horror films/luck myself into a Judd Apatow-like career in terms of producing and still performing comedy.

    Finally heard from my final school. It would appear AFI is my only option, lol.
