Didn't see a Chapman Screenwriting thread yet so thought I'd create one.

Deadline is December 1st!

How many of you have turned it in? When do you plan on turning it in if you haven't?

I highly recommend not waiting to the last moment btw as one year technical difficulties caused someone to miss the deadline. 😬

Good luck everyone!
 
Help!!! I've successfully uploaded all my documents and filled out everything. However, there seems to be a problem because I need to enter a "middle name" but I don't have a middle name lol. Anyone else experience this? I emailed Chapman yesterday and just called the Admissions Office, but they're closed today. If anything, I might just write "N/A" haha.

Same thing happend to me right now, but I was able to submit the application just fine, without filling the middle name.
I'm having trouble with payment now.

Once you submit your application, it should take you the Chapman portal where you will see everything you've submitted. At the top, you should see PAYMENT ($60), click on that. I just made my payment. I'm officially done applying to all my MFA programs.

Good luck : )

Yes I did that....
The problem is that they ask for "account number" and, as an internation student is not working...

I'm on the phone with my bank right now trying to solve the problem

So happy that you are done with everything! I've finished AFI today as well (just have to pay now) but I still have Columbia to go (only missing the 1 page film treatment).

Good luck =D

Just checked on the status of my application and saw that Chapman failed to acknowledge one of my transcripts even though I sent it 2 months before the deadline. I sent an email to the admissions counselor including proof that I indeed sent the transcripts months ago and offered to resend transcripts again, but now I'm freaking out. Does this mean my application will be disqualified?

No I think, don't freak out until you hear back from Admissions. You reached out, you sent in your proof -- the facts are in your favor. Give them a couple days to get back to you and chances are, it will be OK. I really believe that.

The one thing that could possibly be affected is Fellowship eligibility (it's a scholarship thing) and you can reach out to the program about that just to make sure you're still eligible. That can come after you sort the transcript issue with admissions, though.

Best of luck! I think it will be OK.

Don’t panic. It happened to me too few weeks ago and it turned out to be okay as long as you have the proof that you sent them. Just wait for their reply and it should be fine since you already sent them.

Thank you both so much for your reassurance!

I sent a screenshot of proof that I sent the transcripts a while ago, and I also re-sent the transcripts. Chapman accepted the new transcripts and said my application was fine now, so it seems they are still going to consider my application.

For anyone reading this thread in future application years, I suggest you send in your application a day before the final deadline so you have time to check the "application status" and confirm that Chapman indeed opened your transcripts-- especially if you send them digitally from a transcript serves that only allows access for a limited number of days.
