Hey Guys,

I just submitted my Columbia University's application for the new Creative Producing MFA and it feels so good. Anyways, now I must wait and see what happens. Did anyone else on here decide to apply? Who here applied to the Directing/ Screenwriting track?

Good Luck to you ragless. What track are you applying to? Are you applying anywhere else?

Wow, there aren't many people on these boards applying to the new Creative Producing MFA. I wonder if Columbia will try and feel all of the spots because it's their first year of the program.

I applied to the MFA program as a screenwriter. One of my rec's is from the professor who headed the screenwriting program there, so I'm hoping that will put me in the running.
Fingers crossed.

Hey, new here,

I applied to the Creative Producing program. I think I might die from waiting to hear from schools though, and it's barely December.

I also applied to the creative producing track Wyy123. I feel you pain. Would you mind sharing your background?

I'm from Mississippi, not exactly film central. I've been making films and writing screenplays since I was about 11 but I've loved movies for as long as I can remember. Most of my early memories are of watching films. My family isn't too big into me trying to be a filmmaker, but I'm finally going at it on my own. I got a BBA in Business Management and a BA in English this past May and I'll have an MBA by June.

I'm really just ready to wake up knowing that I get to learn about and make films. Is that what you were looking for in background or were you looking for something more film-ish?

That was perfect. Thanks for the introduction. You should check out the chatroom. Lately there has been a lot of traffic.

Take care.

They just sent me an e-mail saying they have all my materials except for a recommendation. Scary! But at least I know they received the stuff...

When did you send the original email to admissions? I've sent two emails and haven't revieved a word. Are they going to allow you to send another recommendation letter? Are you nervous?

I didn't send them a letter. They e-mailed me telling me that it was missing.

I'm not too nervous because the missing letter was from a Columbia film professor, so at least they know him!

Sorry about that. I thought you sent the same email that Silverlain and I sent in order to get a tracking number to track the progress of your application.

Has anyone received their Application ID yet? It's been over a week since I requested mine and so far, no word. How long did it take before you heard from them?
