Emerson Admission

Hey, I have an important question regarding Emerson College admission. The deadline for undergrads was Jan 5th. I mailed my application today, (Jan 5th) because when I tried to submit my online application earlier this morning, I got a message saying the deadline had passed. Do i still have a chance at admittance? thanks a lot.

Was it a received by, or postmarked by deadline? Either way, I'd guess that you're okay.

From the stories I've heard, most schools are slightly less persnickety about deadlines than they let on. Might want to pop an email off to let them know what happened though.

I will be sure when I weigh my options throughout april, but I'll contact you (JW) if i decide to go to emerson, are you gonna join an LC (learning community)?

I'm not sure yet. I got something in the mail about it but I haven't really looked at it yet. I'm about a week away from leaving the country for six months so I'm sort of preoccupied with that. If you decide to go definitely drop me an email as I'll be checking that more often that this forum while I'm away.

I'm thinking of applying to Columbia College of Hollywood. I can't help but feel that going to school somewhere in Hollywood will improve my chances of meeting people and making connections. Alos, I have an internship at Chambers Productions this summer in Eugene, OR. It's gonna be wicked.

Hey, is it true that Emerson doesn't require you submit your SAT scores if you've completed 2 years of college? If so, that is just wonderful...will greatly improve my chances of getting in next year, I'm sure...because like many of you, I'm also applying to NYU and Emerson after my time at UConn! :)

Oh, and also, I hear if you go to Emerson, you get to spend a semester doing film-related work in California...any truth to this rumor as well? If so, that is even more wonderful...:D

They do indeed have amazing study-away programs including a semester in LA and a semester in a castle in the Netherlands.
 
If i decide to go there, i'm shooting for their Prague film study program

This year is a hard year for admissions?
Do you mean at emerson, or in general?
I'm a senior in high school and finished applying a couple of weeks ago.
I applied to emerson early action and got in, but I haven't heard from anyone else yet.
(like many others I applied to nyu)
If anyone has heard anything in general about how admissions are looking this year at film schools, I would like to know, because I applied to several of them (Emerson, nyu, usc, chapman, cal arts, ncsa).
