Got in off of the waiting list (playwriting) on Thursday! I also had posted on GradCafe.
Congrats 😍. Did they call you or email you asking about your continued interest or just extended the offer to you on the portal?

Hey all, finally gonna say something after lurking for a while! Does anyone know when wait listed candidates might receive a frank rejection or confirmation that the acceptance list is finalized? I know we can remain in contention until summer, but was hoping someone may have a rough idea. I know if I am admitted, I will for sure go--it's definitely the dream! It's just a little taxing not knowing right know in terms of planning the rest of my life, so it'd be nice to know either way. Thanks in advance and congrats to everyone who's received good news!

Your Chances of Getting into Film School: Acceptance Rates, GPA Requirements, Waitlist Data, and More...

You've been wondering how hard it is to get into film school and what your are chances getting into top film programs such as USC. Maybe you’ve heard that their acceptance rate is 2% — but what is it, really? You've been wondering what is the lowest GPA a film program will accept and what is the...

If you could update your application with all the important notification dates, your final status (accepted, rejected, off waitlist, attending... etc), how much scholarship money was awarded (if any), your undergraduate degree, GPA, test scores etc that would be AWESOME and very helpful to the site's members. If you could update your application with examples of your submitted material that would be even more awesome.

The Acceptance Rates & Data page for each school uses all this data to help future applicants. To see the data for a particular film school, find your school in our film school database and select the Acceptance Rates & Data tab. If there are enough applications in our database, you enjoy access to valuable tips and information.

Condolences to anyone else who also just got the official "we can't take you off the waitlist" update. I know it's been a long time coming, but I think we should all take a beat to jam out to Lizzo, then get to work on the next thing. Sending everyone all the light in the world.
