Advice Application Forms in the tracker database on this Site


Hey guys,

I'm sure that those of you that have applied to filmschool would have loved to have access to details on supplemental materials required, interview questions etc. when you were applying. I love that this site offers an area which is dedicated to just that but I'm noticing that most people posting about which schools they applied to aren't including any helpful information. If you've applied in the past and posted about it on here, could you please consider going to your post and beefing it up a bit? Just some details on what the process was like, what materials you submitted and how the interview went etc. Even if you didn't get in and feel like you did something obvious that may have hindered you, it can help those preparing to apply this fall with getting into the application mindset.

Very few people on here have used the forms that way but those that did were immensely helpful. I've enjoyed reading about experiences and checking out supplemental materials so much that it's really hyped me up. Also, I've learned a bit about some schools that I previously wouldn't have though to apply to thanks to those that took the time out to share. Anyway, from those of us that are about to be going through the process to those of you that have already, thank you and please consider adding a bit more info.
