Hello hello,

Congrats to those who got through to the interview stage! And to those still waiting, I feel your pain. I'm also a first time poster and occasional lurker.

Don't know if anyone has any insights – I've applied from overseas (UK) and was wondering if international students are usually informed last after US citizens re interview?

I spoke to someone who was also in my situation a couple of years back and she told me that she was informed pretty late. Not sure if she meant interview or getting accepted.

Would love to hear your guys's thoughts!

– S

International applicant here! Just got the rejection letter. I hope for the best. Let's keep doing what we love and entertaining people while we are at it ; )

Sorry what?? Did they email you this?
Yes. I got an email which said "Application status has changed". And indeed in the application status I got a letter that said that I was denied admission.

Dude, I'm so sorry! That really sucks... but, hey, I can see you got into other places and have interviewed for Columbia which is sick

Yeah! Definitely excited about my opportunities. I just wished to have more options. Hopefully, I will have to choose between Chapman and Columbia. Let's hope I get scholarships for both.

Hey, I'm a dual degree program applicant and I thought I could shed some light to those who haven't had their interview yet. I had my MBA interview yesterday and I literally just came out of the MFAinterview. It was a 30-minute skype call with the head of the dual degree program and two professors of the Graduate Film Program (One for cinematography and the other was editing). They were super friendly and really seemed interested in learning about what kind of a storyteller I am.
We started off with routine questions like why did I apply to this program, how did I learn about this program, what is my ultimate career goal and how would this program help me.
Then they asked me to tell a story or explain a memorable moment of my life. I chose an event that I recall from one of my travels. They asked me if I were to shoot a film based on this moment what would the tone /protagonist/purpose of the story be. It felt like an impromptu storytelling exercise, but not too stressful.
Good luck everyone!

So weird I haven’t received any correspondence. Not an invitation to interview or a rejection or anything. Has me confused both worried and hopeful lol
I feel like they wait to send final decisions for the MFA program close to the same time. That's at least what happened last year.

So I should probably assume I’m out considering they haven’t invited me to interview yet.
I don't want to give out any sort of false information (because I'm really just going by what I know from last year) but I will say that interview confirmations went out last week.

People received emails for interviews a couple weeks ago. I'm assuming those of us who haven't heard anything are out. Would love to be proven wrong

Is there a website that you check you application status or just emails?
