Chapman MFA Filmmaking

Hi everyone!

I was just wondering if anyone has ever not been admitted to their first choice program but has received admission for their second choice program?

There's already a chapman thread. You'll probably get more replies in there.

I applied for cinematography, should I use the MFA Television Writing and Producing or will this thread stay active?

You can make a dedicated cinematography thread if you want. :)

Ok :) I will wait a couple of weeks, from what I've read they don't do interviews for cinematography

You could also create a general cinematography thread to find out who else is applying.

Just finished my interview,I am a little bit confused,cause although it said that it's a interview and it's mandatory from the e-mail I got,but I actually talked to one of their student, a very nice girl by the way.
Anyway, she told me that this “interview” is to answer my questions. But they don't have any question for me,just let me ask her whatever I want to know.
Is that a good thing or bad? have any of you got a interview like this ?

That's part of the culture at Chapman. They want to be a good fit for students as much as they want students who are a good fit for them. I found my interview to be very reciprocal that way and I loved it. They were selling Chapman to me as much as I was trying to make a good impression. I'm taking a class currently from the professor I interviewed with and we have a great relationship - faculty here treats you like adults. They expect a lot of you, but the school does everything they can to support you.

So I guess it‘s a good thing after all,thank you so much!

Does anyone know when they are supposed to be releasing decisions for the television writing and producing program?
Hoping tomorrow. Couple other emphasis notifications went out last Friday. Though that is a wild guess. Fingers crossed.
