    Not sure how to make the change, but NYU's Film Production MFA has a separate deadline for the Creative Portfolio- that's December 1st.

    Where did you guys get the UCLA Screenwriting deadline from? I just went to check their website and it's not updated? (It says it will be updated in October and the decline that appears is last year's. WTF)

    Thanks! I'll update it. I'm pretty sure Nov 1st was definitely what their site said before... maybe it was the previous years deadline.

    Yeah I saw - I updated it now. I must have gotten the November 1st deadline from the 2015 deadline or something else. Thanks for pointing it out.

    Are you applying there?

    Ohio University moved their deadline to Feb 7 from Feb 14 (reflected on their ousof.com website and the application system). Hope you don't mind I edited the post!

    That's the whole point of the WIKIs on the site... user editable... so thank you! :)

    I also updated their film school page and the school's individual wiki with the new deadline.
