I am not an expert on UCLA, but both are considered top tier writing programs. Both have outstanding faculty (e.g., Richard Walter at UCLA; Charlie Rubin at NYU) and are well respected by the industry. I know there are many people on these boards who have attended UCLA and NYU, so they may have better insight on this topic.Originally posted by Seoulless:
I sent in a feature length comedy. How does this program's reputation compare to UCLA?
Sorry to hear that. Sounds like the 2nd wave of rejections went out and next week waitlist and acceptances. Anyone else hear anything?Originally posted by darkew:
I applied. No word yet.
edit: I just got a rejection letter with an invite for Asia, which I'm unable to accept because my scholarship is only valid for the US
I think we are all wondering that. I applied last year and thought I was in good shape around this time, only to be waitlisted.Originally posted by Britton:
I still haven't gotten a rejection letter and it's been several days. I'm on edge. Does this mean both waves of rejections have gone out?
Really? People were saying they got interviews and they applied for the DW program.Originally posted by dmtr:
@ mikeofborg - Last year all notifications went out via email, the year before they called admitted students.
@ HUwriter - The Dramatic Writing Program has not historically interviewed any candidates, so lack of an interview is not an indicator of rejection.
What concentration did everyone apply to? I applied to television.
