that is awesome, congrats! is Eric the one who interviewed you? will the person who interviewed us call us? are all calls going out today!
Yes he interviewed me. I am unsure about the process re the calls though. It's always taken them a few days to reach out to people so, as jeanluc wrote, don't freak out yet!

Yes, there is that. But also, I had my mind set on trying to defer due to the current situation, i.e. the world being on fire. But they're giving me quite a decent scholarship and I really don't know if i could possibly pass that up..
I’m sure the world will right itself by the time classes start and if not we all have bigger things to worry about than film school. Did they say if you could defer your acceptance?

Congratulations to you Memz!

I’m curious about deferring too. I really hope they address the implications of the pandemic either during the virtual meetings for admitted students or through an email. It feels so weird proceeding as normal when all of this is going on. It’s so weird to me that none of the schools are addressing it. I’m a little worried about it after talking to current students. I got a scholarship too but I don’t know if I want to pay all that money just to Skype or Zoom my professors.

Congratulations to everyone who has been accepted. Oh my god I'm really nervous now. I think you can write an email to ask about everything you concerned since you're in.

Hi, just want to share with you I’m in! I received an email from Eric at 12pm EST. He shared his phone number with me and asked me to call him through whatsapp audio. He then told me my acceptance via phone. I applied to directing/writing and my interview date was Mar.3rd.

They will keep on calling admitted students throughout the week. Best of luck to you if you are still anxiously waiting. 🤞🤞🤞Patience is bitter but its fruit is sweet!

Hey everyone I haven’t posted here but have been lurking the forum for a while. I just got the call and got accepted to the program! Just wanted to let people know who are still waiting that they are still making calls!
Did you receive a call? Trying to decipher if they call after 5pm or if it’s regular business hours lol.
