    I've been wondering why hasn't anyone started a thread for Chapman this year ;P It was a dark horse(kinda?) at the Students Oscars 2016.
    So here we are...
    I applied to creative producing and had an interview on 2/25.
    How is everybody doing?

    Directing and haven't heard either. It's slowly killing me.

    Hey Irene, I also applied to producing (and also waitlisted by USC Stark :(). I am having my interview this Friday, can you shed some light on what they might ask? How's the Chapman interview comparing to the Stark interview?

    Screenwriting. Nada. It looks historically like Chapman's decisions don't come out until later

    Hey! My interview was pretty laid back, I'd say the most relaxing one I've had. My interviewer was very friendly, and there were no unexpected questions (meaning not on the interview wiki on this site).
    I'm curious how you felt about your Stark interview? Cause I felt they had a good impression on me but then it turned out not exactly the same : /

    Thanks for the info! I had the same feeling after the Stark interview. I think it's just their "technique" to let every candidate feel positive. Let's hope the people who got in also get offers from NYU, UCLA, Columbia... so that we will have a chance! Haha.

    Hello! To echo Irene's points above, the interview was really casual with one producing faculty member, just going over my application and academic/professional background. My interviewer said that he did not have visibility on the timeline but told me to email him in a couple of weeks if I did not hear back. Really sorry, that's not much help.

    Hang in there, I'm probably one of the last few to be interviewed since decisions have already started going out, based on that Q&A.

    I'm usually a lurker but just wanted to say it is wonderful to have such a supportive online community. It has been a long time since I had to apply for school or be interviewed so this forum has been a great resource.

    Hello everyone,

    I'm very new to this site but I have been lurking for the past few days.

    Well, I just received an email from Chapman notifying me of a decision.
    I have been admitted!!! I'm honestly on cloud nine right now as it's one of my top choices!!!

    So, it seems like others will be getting notification emails soon!!! Good luck everyone!!!

    Edited to add: I submitted my application on 12/1. I did not have an interview.
