Chapman MFA TV Writing & Producing Applicants 2021

are y'all seeing the stuff going on in the other chapman forums? have any of y'all's portals changed?

mine hasn't but i don't think all programs are necessarily linked with one another so i'm not worried... yet haha
 
Nothing but a checklist for me
 
Side note: Have you been getting invites to all the master classes? I got one for Bryan Cranston and Barry Jenkins, but haven't gotten invited to the more recent ones and wonder if I was taken out of some pool or something :/

i got an email on 2/26 inviting me to like 4 of them this month and then i got one on the 2nd about their student films? if they just took people out that would be very strange.

i also find it strange that people's portals are doing this before people get their acceptance. i looked back and it happened last year too.

hypothetically, if they have already made their decisions and are only sending invites to certain people as far back as february, then why would they send mixed signals and messages to people? i just can't imagine that's their intention, so i think it might be just a glitchy system and i wouldn't put too much weight on it if i were you

Hi! Can you tell from last year’s posts if the changed portals were admissions or rejections?

You can look through them:

It was like this for other programs too. It seems like they are acceptances, but I really don't want someone to see that and assume they're in and for some reason they're not. Best to wait for the official acceptance before getting too excited.

I also can't tell if this happened for everyone or just these few people who were accepted.

good luck!!

i applied to the tv writing and producing program! it doesn't seem like any of us on here have had anything happen to our portals, so i hope that isn't a negative thing!

I doubt that means anything. Each program does theirs differently. Which I guess is what is confusing me! The Creative Writing program acceptance was so straightforward with the change coming with a decision. I don’t understand why some changed and some didn’t but it seems I will get my answer soon either way 😬😬😬 I am so stressed lol
 
I got an email just a few minutes ago to check the portal. I was accepted. :D
Congrats!!! That is so awesome!!!

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.
 
I didn’t get anything either 😕 Seems like either a denial or we’ll get waitlisted, which iirc they don’t notify you about the waitlist for a couple weeks judging from previous years’ forums.
