Hey everyone! I wanted to start a thread for the NYU Dramatic Writing MFA program. I'm personally finishing up my application now, and would love to talk to other people in the same boat!
Hey! I'm currently working on revising a 30 page pilot I have, into an hour-long TV episode. I think having just this one writing sample to showcase my writing with has been super stressful! Definitely looking at a lot of revising with the weeks ahead haha.Hey! Saw you on the USC thread as well!
I'm also applying for NYU!
I already had a script ready to go, but when I saw it had to be between 90-120 pages I realized that mine wasn't going to work. So right now I'm working on changes to make the script fit the criteria.
Also working on the Statement of Intent that, for me, is the hardest part!
How is your application going?
Hey, I'm applying for the NYU Dramatic writing program as well. I've been working on an hour-long tv pilot. I would be happy to trade scripts!I was also wondering if anyone wants to exchange scripts they are thinking of submitting for the application, maybe we could give each other feedback before hitting the almighty submit button!
Hey equus!Does anyone know how set in stone the "concentration" thing is? Let's say I choose 'playwriting' on the application and submit a full length play. If I were admitted, could I change that at any point? Does it dictate the curriculum in a significant way? Maybe I'm just missing this on the website...
hey dude, I'd be up to swap scripts with you! message me if your interested. I'm applying to NYU as well.Currently wrapping up my NYU app (after just submitting to AFI and USC), so if anyone wants to script swap let me know! I'm trying to finish this rewrite and need a last jolt of motivation.
Thank you for this! Super helpfulHey equus!
I'm a first year in the program right now. You are in no way confined to what you submit with your application. You are expected to choose a concentration over the course of the program though because you can only do your thesis on one of the three mediums. However, you still have room to supplement your education with electives/masterclasses/workshops in other mediums.
Same here! I think I'll finish my screenplay this weekend! I also feel like the personal statement is the hardest part for me, every time I read it, I change something!I'm almost in a good place with my pilot script, but now I'm just really doubting my personal statement haha. I feel like I'm guessing a bit on what to include
