Hi! Yes, I received the email and sccheduled my interview on monday. I scheduled it as soon as I received the email but there were only a few slots available. Maybe my interviewers are only available those days?
by "those days" I meant the three days in March I was able to choose from

That may just have been the time slots they gave you to pick from. They probably didn't give everyone the full month of slots. I didn't get an interview from them so others may chime in with how many options they got to choose from.

Good luck on your interview!!

I also only had two days available to schedule my interview and found it weird. I reread the interview email though and it said that you are assigned two specific professors to interview you. So each interviewer must only have a few candidates they are assigned to interview.

When I went to schedule my interview on Monday evening the only options were March 1st or 8th and it was the same on Wednesday evening when I went to finally schedule it, but I thought I saw somebody say they got a March 13th interview. Were you offered different dates?

On a separate note... just curious, when everyone submitted their material for the screenwriting/directing program, did you include your name, birthday, program, and title on all documents? I felt like I only saw that specific direction mentioned in one place while applying and I think it was on some general application requirements page, but not the specific program's list.

My date is later in the month, I believe the 18th/19th. Also, I did include my name but not all the other information. I would be very surprised if you needed all of that on each document.

Yeah, I was surprised by it, but on the graduate admissions requirement page it said "all submitted creative materials must clearly bear the applicant's name, date of birth, name of program to which he or she is applying, and title of the material" but the actual creative materials page/list didn't say anything about that so I was just remembering that I almost didn't see that part before submitting and wondered if it was actually necessary in the end.

Has anybody else received an email with the names of their interviewers? I only received the initial invite and the confirmation immediately after I scheduled.

Thank you so much for giving me a time that I find it hard to stay up to! It's actually over 12:40 pm, the Beijing Time, due to the time difference... Can't stand the wait! I've been thinking of it the whole day... Hope I can fall asleep ASAP (⋟﹏⋞)...
Hi Diana,

Sincerely,

After I confirmed my interview, they sent an email reminder with the names of the interviewers.

I was accepted for an interview but it's not until the middle of March (over a month away). Why is it so late? Don't they send acceptance letters around that time? I applied for screenwriting/directing.

To my knowledge they’re just finishing up CP interviews, so they’re probably just starting your batch. I wouldn’t worry too much.

so if you didn't get an email about an interview then you're automatically rejected or is there the slightest chance that they accept people without interviews?

I would be very surprised if they accepted people without interviews, especially since some people who have interviews will undoubtedly be rejected.
 
I received my interview email on Tuesday and signed up for an interview on February 19 for the MFA in screenwriting/ Directing. But I have yet to receive an email telling me who will be conducting the interview.
