I did mine starting in early August, but I think the sooner the better for rewrites. Break a leg!!!Hi everyone,
I don't meant to interrupt the main focus of this conversation so far (waiting for acceptance, etc.), but I had a question that really has to do more with applying for next year (as I didn't apply this year). NYU Dramatic Writing seems to be one of the few programs that actually requires the submission of a fully formed written project (full-length feature script, TV pilot or play) to satisfy its creative portfolio requirement. As this is actually a pretty big endeavor, can I ask when most people started working on this (and I know answers will vary from person to person), i.e., how far in advance of the November (or December) application deadline? And do most people use an existing work they might have already started working on (or even finished) independently (i.e., before even deciding to apply for the MFA), or did any of you literally start your project from scratch and essentially write an entire movie, TV show, or play purely for purposes of having something to use for the portfolio submission?
again, thanks for taking the time to read this... I know most people here are justifiably nervous waiting on their decisions... wish you all the best!
