Sorry! I just saw this question. Definitely Dodge! With my fellowship the CW program isn’t much cheaper. I’m still waiting for BU for CW, but honestly, at this point I can’t imagine turning this down. Have you decided where you’re going yet?
I think I'm going to Dodge !!! Feel free to message me, I'd love to talk to someone about moving and all that 🥳
 
Hey guys!! I'm going to start a Chapman MFA Facebook page (For all people under the film MFA umbrella)!! if you're interested in being a part of the group join Chapman Off housing and comment on my post!

I’m on the thread! Thank you for doing this
 
Me too! I don't know if that info is accurate...looking back at last year it seems that candidates were interviewed. Congrats/good luck!
I also have an interview with them April 5th. Would either of y’all mind letting me know what sort of questions they ask? Assuming your interview is before mine. If yours is after mine I’ll come back here and share what was asked.
 
It was mostly just about my films/application materials and goals and they answered my questions. I had a lot. It was super casual and personal - not like an “interview” so much as a conversation. That’s why it’s a little harder to read! I got some great compliments on my storytelling though so even if I don’t get in, it’s encouraging feedback from film professors/industry professionals! They did say decisions will probably be end of March so I’m betting there is another round of interviews after this one. Don’t give up hope if you haven’t heard anything yet :)
What questions did you have for them? If you don’t mind sharing.

Be sure to update your applications on the with as much information as you have as it helps the site calculate a lot of important data for each school. See how the site uses this amazing data in the article below:

Your Chances of Getting into Film School: Acceptance Rates, GPA Requirements, Waitlist Data, and More...

You've been wondering how hard it is to get into film school and what your are chances getting into top film programs such as USC. Maybe you’ve heard that their acceptance rate is 2% — but what is it, really? You've been wondering what is the lowest GPA a film program will accept and what is the...

If you could update your application with all the important notification dates, your final status (accepted, rejected, off waitlist, attending... etc), how much scholarship money was awarded (if any), your undergraduate degree, GPA, test scores etc that would be AWESOME and very helpful to the site's members. If you could update your application with examples of your submitted material that would be even more awesome.

The Acceptance Rates & Data page for each school uses all this data to help future applicants. To see the data for a particular film school, find your school in our film school database and select the Acceptance Rates & Data tab. If there are enough applications in our database, you enjoy access to valuable tips and information.

How Chapman is dealing with COVID:

How COVID-19 changed film school from coast to coast

How COVID-19 changed film school from coast to coast

Even in the days before the Delta strain wreaked havoc from coast to coast, we already knew that COVID-19 has altered the film industry — and permanently, some might argue. But it’s not just the method of film production and where films are being released that have changed. Going to film school...
