Hi all, just got a call that I have been accepted for Film Production off of the waitlist. I have until April 19th to decide - I have no idea what my answer will be because I just accepted at another school literally today as well. Just wanted to fill ya'll in in case anyone is also holding out for waitlist acceptance! I imagine more spots will open up after the decision deadline as well
Congrats, I haven’t heard anything from any of my waitlisted schools.

If you could update your application with examples of your submitted material that would be even more awesome.

The Acceptance Rates & Data page for each school uses all this awesome data to help future applicants. See the above article for examples of how we use the data.

How COVID-19 changed film school from coast to coast

Even in the days before the Delta strain wreaked havoc from coast to coast, we already knew that COVID-19 has altered the film industry — and permanently, some might argue. But it’s not just the method of film production and where films are being released that have changed. Going to film school...
