Thanks to the donations from the many wonderful Supporting Members of the site I've been able to fund the development of Filtering and Sorting of the Applications in the Application Tracker. Thank you so much for your support and making this possible!

With the addition of this new feature the Application Tracker has finally eclipsed all of the capabilities of the old Google Sheet method of Application Tracking. I really hope everyone enjoys the new feature and finds it useful. The built in Application Tracker is really becoming an AWESOME new feature on the site. :)

To filter you simply use the Filter button on the Application Tracker pages. In order for the Film Program filter to show up you need to be in either the Graduate or Undergraduate Application categories.

You can now filter and search by:
  • Graduate School Program ***Must choose this application category for this filter to show up***
  • Undergraduate School Program ***Must choose this application category for this filter to show up***
  • Application Status Prefix (You can select multiple)
  • GPA
  • Country of Applicant
You can also sort the results by:
  • GPA
  • SAT score
  • ACT score
  • GRE scores
  • Submission Date
  • Interview Notification Date
  • Interview Date
  • Decision Date
For example here is all the AFI Screenwriting Applications:

https://www.filmschool.org/applications/categories/graduate-film-school-applications.8/?scf[School][0]=AFIScreenwriting

Here is all the 2019 USC Screenwriting Applications sorted by Decision Notification date:

https://www.filmschool.org/applications/categories/fall-2019-ma-mfa.1/?order=scf_DecNotifDate&direction=desc&scf[School][0]=USCWritingforScreen

Here is all the admitted USC Screenwriting Applications: (you can select multiple Application Status Prefixes)

https://www.filmschool.org/applications/categories/graduate-film-school-applications.8/?scf[__prefix_ids][0]=4&scf[__prefix_ids][1]=5&scf[__prefix_ids][2]=6&scf[__prefix_ids][3]=7&scf[__prefix_ids][4]=12&scf[__prefix_ids][5]=13&scf[School][0]=USCWritingforScreen

Here us all the admitted USC Screenwriting Applications sorted by GPA:

https://www.filmschool.org/applications/categories/graduate-film-school-applications.8/?order=scf_GPA&direction=desc&scf[__prefix_ids][0]=4&scf[__prefix_ids][1]=5&scf[__prefix_ids][2]=6&scf[__prefix_ids][3]=7&scf[__prefix_ids][4]=12&scf[__prefix_ids][5]=13&scf[School][0]=USCWritingforScreen

MUCH MUCH better than the old Google Sheet version. :) Enjoy!

This has been updated again - you can now sort by school directly in the filter on all pages. :) Enjoy! Also the prefixes that you chose are now displayed and can be individually cleared.

And we've broken the 2,000 application barrier! There are now 2,002 applications in the database. This is extremely helpful to everyone applying to film school. If you haven't added your application please do so and remember the more information you add the more helpful it is too other and future applicants.

Info & Data that is super helpful:

  • Notification dates
  • GPA and test scores
  • Past film experience
  • Notes and comments on how the application process went
  • Descriptions of submitted materials or even actual submitted materials
GPAs and test scores and portfolios are only seen by site members so you don't have to worry about it being visible to Google or the open web.

The more data the better!

Let's get it to 3,000 applications!
