Hello! I have been accepted to both LMU and Emerson under Film Production (both with scholarships). I am currently trying to choose between the two... I know that both schools are highly regarded for their programs in Film however I'm not quite sure which school would suit me and also benefit me after graduating. Any opinions?

Everyone I know in New York (SVA, Ithaca, etc.) knows at least one person that has transferred from Emerson. Also, I heard Emerson raised their tuition without raising their aid. LMU's location is a plus -- it's right near the beach and very convenient to have meetings with industry professionals in the LA area -- LMU would benefit you better after graduating if you intend to live in California. I believe Emerson also has an LA program (?) but I suggest looking into it... If I were you, I'd choose LMU.
