Interviews 2012


New Member
Hi Y'all,
I'm getting nervous waiting to hear back from schools. Let me know what schools you've applied to and if you've heard back from anyone yet.
Thanks :)

Yeah, it's nice to confirm to myself that my applications are not in fact being thrown directly into the garbage as I often fear while lying in bed.


No kidding, I felt more or less the same when I read the e-mail today. Also, it's a great momentum builder and motivator. I hope this will be the first of many!

Congrats everyone on getting their e-mail notifications today! They seemed to suggest most interviews are conducted on campus. Does everyone plan to visit FSU or will anyone be trying for a skype interview? How do you think FSU stacks up against the more name schools like USC, AFI, and NYU?
Hey all,

I opened my mail to see that I have been invited for an interview by FSU. It was such a relief. This is the first time I applied and am overwhelmed by the fact that I atleast got into the interview round. Congratulations to all.

BTW am a foreign student from India, so even if I do get an admission, there will be tons of visa procedures to sort out. :p
Hello to all, this is me (screenwriting applicant):

UCLA: Rejected at the beggining of January
AFI: Interviewed last week
USC/NYU/Columbia: Absolute silence...


@ignatiusreilly may I ask if you applied as an undergrad to UCLA? I thought they didn't give rejections until much later.
Im sure youll do well in the other ones you applied to. best of luck.

I am nervous now because I haven't yet received any email from FSU whatsoever. They told me they would send an email whether I get an interview or not. Did anyone get an interview email after the 6th? Did anyone get a rejection email for that matter?

Anyways, I am applying as a transfer so it might make a difference. I just feel really confident about it because I got accepted to the largest youth film festival in the world last year and met and competed against many FSU film students and won an award on top of it. I can't imagine that FSU couldn't at least give me an interview.

Maybe I'm just getting too nervous about it haha.

Okay, so now I realize I'm looking at the forum for graduate students. I'm going to assume FSU is starting with interviews for graduates first.


New Member
@chasetheface ... I received an interview on the 7th for undergraduate... so I think the graduate/undergraduate interviews are given out at the same time.

But you live in Florida right? I've found multiple undergraduates from Florida that have or have not received interviews, but I have yet to find any from out of state.
