Should I go to Syracuse university? or Depaul university? (1 Viewer)

Hi!

I applied 5 schools for the fall 2021 MFA program (Chapman, UT, LMU, Depaul, Syracuse)

Gratefully, I got acceptance from Syracuse (and waiting for Depaul, waitlist on LMU, else I got rejected )but I don't have much information about their film program.

I love to take fiction films and barely interested in documentary and experimental films (on the interview with professors and Korean students, I felt that the fiction film part is not much emphasized.)

and the ultimate purpose is getting a job in the film industry (LA would be great but also I consider NY).

Can you answer that Syracuse is helpful for getting a job that is related to commercial films after graduation and for getting internship opportunities in LA or NY during the program?

also, I wonder if DePaul is a good school compared to Syracuse.

Thank you!

안녕하세요!! 반가워요
Syracuse 붙으신거 축하드려요!! 혹시 무슨 전공으로 지원했는지 물어봐도될까요? 저도 이번에 지원해서 screenwriting전공으로 채프맨 가게됐는데 여러 필름스쿨 알아봤어서 제가 아는 선에서 도움드리고 싶네요..!

헐 ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ 너무 반가워요 챔프먼 절 떨어졌어요 ㅠㅠㅠ 저 모두 directing 으로 넣었어요!!! 지금 lmu 예비됐고 depaul 기다리고있어요
lmu 안되면 depaul 이나 시라큐스 가려고 하는데 둘다 la가 아니잖아요? 혹시 이런경우 나중에 la로 취업하는게 힘들까요? 그게 전 제일 걱정입니다 ㅠㅠ

맞아요 영화쪽 생각하시는 분들 대부분 LA나 NY쪽 가깝게 학교를 가려고 하시더라고요. 혹시 LA말고 NY에서 직장 구하시는것도 생각해보셨을까요? 제가 알기론 Syracuse 도 프로그램이 되게 좋다고 들었는데 (유럽쪽에서 공부할 기회도 주고 필름페스티벌도 데려가고 여러모로 콜라보를 많이 하더라고요) 정확하게 파악하시려면 faculty하고 직접 연락을 해서 성향이 맞는 교수를 찾는게 우선인거 같아요! 프로그램만 놓고 고려해보자면 저라면 시라큐스 갈거 같아요. 시라큐스는 뉴욕쪽이고 디폴은 시카고 쪽이라 지리적으로 봤을때도 시라큐스가 취업하기엔 더 유리할거 같아요.
lmu도 진짜 좋은데 나중에 만약 lmu 오시게 되면 꼭 알려주세요 나중에 기회되면 만나요 ㅎㅎ
사실 미국대학원 영화쪽으로 진학하시는 분이 거의 드물어서 너무 반갑네요!! 저 카톡 아이디 yyj04145인데 언제든지 연락주세요~
