Hey guys, just got my acceptance. Over the moon - expect news soon!
I’M INNNNNNNNNNNNNN OMG!!
Just got my acceptance as well! Congrats to everyone getting in I’m so excited!
haha same :) But for editing. We just have like two people on here who applied for editing - so i'm just jumping in on the other threads 😅
I also just got my acceptance, woo! Congrats to everyone and good luck to those still waiting to hear!
Waitlisted, now I have to wait and see... I'm sure the best will happen ✨
Guuuys, I got waitlisted! AFI is my number one choice so I'll remain on the list! Congratulations everyone who got accepted :) I really hope to see you in August!
Congrats everyone! So awesome.

Idk if anyone else got a call from AFI, but one of the professors who interviewed me just called to say congrats. It was a nice surprise, but I was super caught off guard haha

Ed Decker called me on Saturday! I missed the call - phone forever on silent over here - but we had a great discussion during my interview and it helped sway me a little more towards AFI to hear his congratulations email and he clearly remembered me.

Now if they'd just let us know on the financial aid front... Trying to be patient given everything going on, but patience also isn't a gift I was blessed with.

That’s awesome! It’s so kind of them to reach out. And if we don’t get anything by Friday, I’m gonna call the financial aid office.

Yeah, has anyone here heard anything at all with regards to financial aid as yet?

Nothing yet. My portal shows me federal loan, but when I click "review letter" I have "no financial aid award available." I'm sure things are crazy for them, but it would really help me make some choices. So far the only school I have info for is Chapman which has both my federal and plus loans. And that's a big number, ha.

I did get an email about my headshot and bio though.

Same! Got the email from Anna Proulx about headshots but nothing from the financial aid director yet. I'm really hoping they say something soon. Money is such a big deciding factor

Yeah, I got nothing. So no AFI for me I'm afraid. It's a bummer but I was prepared for it. Although kind of shocked so many received nothing. As an international student I can't get the loans to cover this, so it makes it kind of impossible really.
 
I wonder whether the current uncertainty has had an impact. I got a scholarship, sure it was smaller than I would have liked, but now realise it may have been on the higher end. Grateful nonetheless - but overall costs still pricy.
