It's called DODGE COLLEGE INFO SESSIONS & VIRTUAL TOURS.
there are different times lots in March. I registered this event already.
Interesting. When did you apply? I received that invite a few days after I applied, back in December. If you weren’t invited then, it could mean something? It’s really hard to say. As usual, I wish there was more transparency in this process. I also understand why there isn’t.

I actually received the same email a few days after I applied also. but I missed that one. then i got this one in March. what confused me is that my friend also applied but he didnt receive this one. But he did receive one in December.
I heard that Chapman does not give interviews for all the accepted applicants, so I personally consider any activity could be a sign.
I am so nervous

Is this your top choice? I’m super nervous, too! I did have an interview a few weeks back and sent thank you emails but didn’t receive acknowledgments for them so of course I feel like it means they hated me lol

don't panic. they may not reply to all the emails because of the high volume of applications.
my dream school was nyu and usc, but so far Chapman seems to be my top choice if I still have a chance. lol

Not yet but I hope it’s soon!! I will say these master classes have been incredible. Well worth the application fee, even if I get rejected! 😂 when was your interview? Mine was 2/11...

I had Andy, Christine and James Dutcher. I loved them all. And yes, super positive and I was so impressed with how well they knew my application! It didn’t feel like an interview and took a while to process what happened.

Be sure to update your Applications with all the decision info and share your portfolios or application materials on them if you're willing.

Also be sure to update or add your Applications of you got Waitlisted or rejected as that'll seriously help us figure out how many people from the Waitlist get admitted.

There's also new fields for age, county, film experience, and Scholarship awarded that will be very helpful to future applicants.


The more info people can add the more info we have for each program to better help people.
 
Add your film school application to our Application Database so that we can improve our admissions statistics.
