Hey y’all, still haven’t heard back... but just noticed when I logged in to the application portal I now have a disclaimer about a deposit to hold my spot once I know about admission - the wording was super confusing?? And would they post that if I didn’t get in? So odd.

I applied for screenwriting but I got the deposit message, too! 😲 Chapman, explain yourself?!

Got the fancy email! I'm holding off on accepting/declining as I have other acceptances and I'm waiting to hear from AFI today or Monday - happy to have decisions to make though!

Just got the email - I got in!


Hope you got a happy email too!
Waitlisted! Oh my god I can’t believe this is happening! 😊😭
Congrats everyone! If you want the Chapman badge and access to the private Chapman forum (which was quite active last year) see this thread here:

EXCITED about my acceptance into Chapman U's MFA in Television Writing & Producing program Fall 2020.
NOT EXCITED about finding a way to pay the $1000 Enrollment Deposit!

Oh my...

$1,000 seems to be the going rate - save for USC which is shockingly $300. The idea of deposits is so odd to me. I didn't put a deposit down to hold my undergrad seat. But when I was accepted to an MBA program I ultimately turned down, it was a $2500 deposit (and a REALLY high price tag!)

Does anybody know how long you have to respond to the waitlist offer before it’s no longer valid? I just don’t want to lose the opportunity, but I’m not sure if the other schools are done with their acceptances yet, especially with what’s happening and all.

Never mind! I called and they said there’s no time limit, but they’d prefer it as soon as possible. :)

What’s been your favorite and least favorite class?

Do you have a favorite professor?

How many scripts have you completed?

Do you work with others to write or are you writing on your own and then workshopping together?

How has online learning been?

Have you don’t any production class yet?

What is the work load like the first year?

Thanks for doing this!

Hey, all! So I was notified a few days ago that I have been accepted off the waitlist. So if anyone is still holding out, it's definitely possible :) (Although I am contemplating deferring till next year. Life is just too crazy at the moment)
