Hey guys!
I didn't see a thread for this so I decided to start one. Did any one else apply? And if so where else did you apply additionally.

I did. I live in LA and prefer to stay in this area so I applied only to UCLA. I know I'm making the classic mistake of putting all my eggs in one basket....but you know those application fees really add up!

Did you get interviewed by UCLA already?

Hey! I got an interview from AFI but still radio silence from UCLA. I know Screenwriting applicants from UCLA have started getting interview requests so I hope we're next. Also the fees definitely add up. I got a waiver for Chapman and Loyola.

@zokage_ I was just reading through the Stark thread and I don't think anyone has been notified yet.

Which is your first choice? Or are you indifferent? @zokage_

Nothing wrong with being decisive and knowing what you want. I originally had intentions of only applying to UCLA. @skimoak

Hey! Same here, reg. AFI. Do you know if UCLA sends invites for interviews throughout Jan? Or is it safe to assume no news is bad news? :(
Thanks!

According to the data from past applications the earliest notification date for directing is January 30. It's the screenwriting ones that go out earlier.

Congrats!!!!!
 
Anyone else interview? I was on the fence about UCLA but now I’m really falling in love with the program, ooof. I think mine went well, they started with “tell my about yourself” which I was somehow completely unprepared for 😂 but otherwise I feel good about it.
