    I just applied on Thursday. Spent last several months working on my application. I'm ridiculously nervous. Anyone else do so? How ya feeling? Anyone interested in sharing work?

    For people who applied last year, how did you deal with nerves? I'm trying the whole, "KEEP WORKING!" thing to get my mind off it, but I'm crazily anxious. The future feels very indefinite.

    Let me know!

    Hey, If it helps, I missed out on the deadline by a few minutes thanks to a bad internet connection. But who am I kidding . Should have started sooner. At least you sent it in on time man :) . I ve applied to NYU and USC though. And I totally understand the nerves part. Future looks so indefinite here as well. But atleast we are orienting ourselves toward the right direction. Hope you make it man ! All the best !

    Thanks! Same to you! What was the application process like for NYU and USC? What program did you apply for, writing/directing? Also, want to share films?

    I'm sorry you missed the deadline, that sucks. I was terrified I would as one of my letters didn't come in until a few hours before (literally had to track down the teacher in Chicago to remind him constantly).

    "Quid pro quo's my principle," funny as hell line. Solid work! Especially liked 'Frank's initial reveal.

    I applied last year and got an interview and didn't get in...I was sad about it but that's life. Hoping I get in this time. Honesty, I have no advice on how to get it off your mind...it's a very important step for your future. Just think positive.
