NYU Film and Television or Chapman Film Production?


New Member
Hey everyone!
I'm a high school senior who just finished applying to undergrad film schools for Fall 2021. I was admitted to Chapman for Film Production and NYU for Film and TV, and I'm really torn. They both seem like great programs. I already live on the East Coast so NYU wouldn't be a huge culture shock, but at the same time it is really expensive. Chapman seems lovely, but I don't know if I'm ready for California yet or that I wouldn't be incredibly homesick. My parents are pushing for grad school afterward as well.
If anyone has any input/advice on which one I should pursue, I would really appreciate it!

@Arianasanchez @anniewaits and @liz_ard_ went to NYU for undergrad it looks like and should hopefully be able to give you advice.

Also there's a good thread on chapman vs USC here which may give you some insight:

I've heard great things about both schools.

One thing that could also help is for you to make a pro and cons list for both. Some people have done that in other threads and found that helpful.
