Hi everyone! I just got an interview notification from Chapman admission few days ago. I’m an international student so I will do it via Skype. While the faculty said they are actually still working on time slots so they would inform me whenever they are ready.
Did anyone also get an interview request during these days? I’m wondering what the question will be like.🧐
Ps: I applied for directing, 2020Fall

Nothing yet. What day did they email you? Was it an email?

Also congratulations! Lol

And are you documentary or narrative? Sorry for all the questions I’m just curious why no one else has announced their interview invitation yet. I see a lot of other updates have been from the documentary track.

They email me on 30 Jan
Yes, it’s an official email sent from Chapman admission (not from any professor) They invited me to have a in-person interview in campus and also attend the campus tour and their directing class. They provide me a link to a booking system to reserve the day. But since I am currently not in the US, I choose to do it via Skype. They said they will contact me once they are ready.

Thank you

Yes, I applied for narrative film directing.
I think they just started to send interview notification these days because I didn’t find many others got the email from narrative track. Did you also apply for narrative film directing? I think they will send more notification emails in the next few days.

Hi! Congratulations on the interview invitation. All the best for it.

I have also applied for the Fall 2020 Direction Program. Anxiously waiting for a response from them.

Good luck on your application! I think they are still sending out the interview request mails! It’s just the first week of Feb, still have lots of time!

According to last year's applications interviews should go out soon and very soon. Just thought I'd make this so we have some place to share the good news!

Hi! Yes I got an interview invite around the 29th and I’m also going to do Skype, I live in Texas. I’m not really sure what the questions will be...probably why you want to go there specifically and more info about your proposed documentary idea.

Am I the only one still confused? Lol. Are they sending out more interview invites? Are all the ones sent just documentary? Will we get a chance to sell ourselves to Chapman?!

Find out all this and more on “Chapman is Playing Games with Us” !!!

Set your DVR folks, it’s gonna be an interesting next couple of weeks ;)

Dont think it's just the doc directing folks. I have my interview, via Skype, for the Producing program this week.

The other programs are moving, I expect the directing interview requests will pick up.

I finished my interview and I was lowkey so nervous. I hope I didn't blow it. Id recommend doing the 5 hour tour and class sit-in if you can! Everyone at Chapman seems so nice and cool!

Hi! Was your interview via Skype or in-person? and what did they ask during the interview? I’m also going to have my interview soon... Quite nervous!!

I meant for directing since this is technically the directing thread but all are welcome! 😃

I’m just trying to figure out if just documentary applicants and one narrative were invited to interview. It’s weird to have only one narrative on this whole website to have gotten an interview request. And then if they aren’t done with all the interviews, why are they so far spaced out? She got her invite 2 weeks ago. Just weird but maybe Chapman is going through some stuff idk 🤷‍♀️

They give me a link to reserve the date of interview, and there are many time slots on it (maybe more than ten), and most of it has been reserved. It doesn’t include those who chose to go there in person, so I guess they had sent out serval requests so far, but I’m not sure if it is only narrative or also documentary.

Maybe nobody’s updating on the site then? But there were quite a few documentary people so it could also be a few of them. Yeah idk. But I checked back a few years and one person did get a request three weeks after the first batch (assuming they put in the correct date) so I’ll give them another week!

In the meantime, anybody get a request from CalArts? The link they sent didn’t work and they haven’t answered either of my emails lol. Makes me feel like they don’t care so why should I? 😂 I guess I’ll call today
