Hey!

Who is applying this year? And what are you applying with - play, screenplay or TV-pilots? One week to go and I'm still in re-write and editing mode, I figured I'd start this thread to distract/procrastinate a little! :)

I'm applying for the first time, sending in two pilot scripts. Finished them a while ago but just been polishing and editing. I really like how NYU has a multi medium curriculum with tv/movies/stage. So you get to dabble in everything

Good luck to you both! I am sure they're completely fine with 89.5 pages. I really like their multi medium approach as well.. Submitted a feature screenplay.

Feels so strange to have worked so hard on all these applications and now suddenly not having anything to do with my time but wait! Countdown beings..

I haven't. Historically they have been sending them out around last week of February, so do believe this week might be the one...
 
And it looks like the interview requests roll over a couple weeks based on last year's data. That makes me more nervous that knowing it comes out all at once.

Hey, have any of you gotten an update? I got a email this morning about a Financial Aid form that opened up and was advised to fill out. I know it has no affect on decisions but was just wondering if anyone has gotten anything similar? Seems weird that they would ask right NOW as opposed to earlier in the process, you know? Or have any of you done the same?

I know I received an email reminding me to fill out a financial aid form that is optional on your application. The deadline for it was February 15th though.

See, that's weird about it, haha. I knew about that deadline too, so I don't know why they sent me the email and asked me to do it today.. haha we'll see

I also just got the financial aid form reminder email yesterday. Wouldn't read much into it. Good luck to everyone, seems like we'll hear re: interviews either this week or next based off previous year timelines.

Man I really hope it's not next week. I am so useless at my work right now, just completely pre-occupied with these applications.

Give me answers damn it.

Congrats! Curious as to what you submitted for your sample and if it showed up on the application portal.
Thank you! I submitted a feature screenplay. It's only listed as 'portfolio' on the application portal. Does it say something different for you?

It says portfolio for me too! Sorry I mean if it lists the invite for an interview request on the application portal. For another school of mine, it updated on the portal before I received an email, so I was just curious.
