In reading about this program on the school's website, it seems like you meet up in person with other students and professors for a week at the beginning of the semester, then the rest of the program is online. Can anyone clarify that that is truly how they operate?

Hey Dylan,

Yes. Emerson is a low-residency program which meets at the begging of each semester for about a week straight (very long, and intense hours). The fall semester meets in Boston, and the Spring semester meets in Los Angeles. The rest of the semester is to be completed online.

The program is intended to give you the flexibility to complete and internship, or work in the field while you are still in school.

I received admitted letter, unfortunately no scholarship, do you know how to pursue large scholarship at college? My financial situation is bad. I guess they are generous to new applicants, but I didn't be chosen(;
