I’m thinking about transferring from my current film school to UCLA for Fall 2022. Does anyone have any advice as to how I should approach the essays? (1 Viewer)

Hi guys, I’m applying to transfer into UCLA’S TFT school for fall 2022. I’m a good writer but fairly nervous about what angle I should approach the essays. I’m hoping to get into the screenwriting program. It would be really helpful if anyone who has transferred into UCLA from another film school, or from another college in general, could offer some tips. I appreciate it in advance.

There's no text - was the article removed? I'd really like to read it.

I was considering applying to UCLA but have been turned off by interactions with their admissions process this cycle (unclear instructions, last-minute changes, etc). During an info session a few weeks ago, someone asked if they had any post-grad/job placement support (like USC's 1st jobs program) and the rep responded with something along the lines of "no, we expect students to figure it out and network/hustle for themselves" YIKES

Still, it seems like they still have a really good reputation in the industry despite all their recent restructuring. If anyone knows more about what changes have actually been implemented, please jump in!

Huh you're right it's gone.

Nothing is ever truly gone on the internet though if you use the way back machine:
