Hi there,

As the title says...I missed the deadline of Columbia. (which is yesterday 😢
I got all the materials ready, just couldn't upload the media sample cause the internet is horrible in where I live (I'm doing a volunteer job at a film festival, and the hotel they provide is sketchy 😂
and yeah Columbia does not accept external link 😢
Just want to know if there's any thing I can do at this moment like write them a email or give them a call.
I put so much effort on to the 10-page script and 3-page film prompt, can't believe they're all in vain right now :((
Has anybody had the same situation before and got a deadline extension?

Thank you so much for time!

Sorry to hear! Definitely call them.

Ooof.... That must have been a horrible feeling when it wasn't working. :(

This is why I don't recommend waiting until the last minute. I hope they can give you good news.

Thanks for the blessing! I sent them a email yesterday and haven't get a response yet. I'll call the admission office today to see if there's any luck 😢
I might consider apply for the Visual Art MFA program instead. (Columbia's film mfa program has only three concentrations, directing/producing and screen writing. They don't have cinematography which is my BFA major. But they do have moving image concentration under the Visual Art program. So I guess I'll have to switch program it things doesn't work out😂😂

Doh! I see you're addicted to last minute. ;)

Where did you go to school for undergrad? Be sure to review it in the review section if to haven't yet. It can be anonymous.

Yeah 😂 I'm sort of paranoid with writing materials and just couldn't stop editing till the last day :((
My undergrad schools are Beijing Film Academy and Columbia College Chicago. I'll update my application info later
Btw, no love from the admission office 😢 I'll just go for Visual Art then ( just figured the acceptance rate of Visual art is much lower than film, they have only 27spaces for 1k-1k2 applicants every year😂 Film has around 600 applicants per year for 72spots
