What's good everyone, I'm Deondra Edwards from St. Louis, MO. I'll be graduating this May from Virginia State University and I was recently denied acceptance drom USC Television and Production program. I wanted to know from the people who applied there and was denied the first time but was accepted the second time around, what did you change/add to your application to make it that much better? I don't know where to strengthen my application for this coming Spring 2016 semester...

Point Break

Hey @Deondra Edwards

Someone posted their journey a few years back on this forum and I found it quite useful when I applied. If you scroll all the way to the bottom he lists a few things that he changed and improved on.

Sorry you didn't get in this time, but hopefully this helps if you decide to reapply or even pursue film independently.
