Hey , I got accepted this year, I was wondering what has been your experience in American University so far.
Also how many people do they accept each year (what is the class size)?
 
Hey. I didn't apply however, I live in DC and American is like half a mile away from my campus. It's a solid program and you'll get a ton of personal attention. So congrats.

I deferred a year. I'll be attending this Summer if I don't get into USC or Chapman.

Do you know of anyone that has been in that program before? My main concern about it not being a ranked school anymore is the availability of networking and getting a decent job when I graduate.

I'm scared of the same thing, It is also very expensive.
I'm not sure what is the quality of the program.
I also got accepted to Temple University, So I'm not sure what to do ...

I'd pick American if those are the only two you applied to that you are waiting to hear back from. American University at least used to be ranked in the top 25 by Hollywood Reporter a few years back, but not anymore. Also, DC is a huge media hub. American not only teaches you film, they teach you journalism, how to work in a news studio, basic web design. It's kinda like a jack of all trades for multiple types of media.
