Thank you so much for sharing your experience of the interview! I am so so looking forward to it!I had my interview and honestly it was amazing. They were running behind but once it actually started it was light hearted and pretty relaxed. I could tell they truly cared about who I was as a person and it's a piece I really appreciated.
That’s interesting because in my interview I asked and was told it’s required to get an interview to be accepted. Last year and in previous years it was too. They just said an interview does not garuntee acceptance. I just asked on Saturday with the faculty. So that’s odd. Good luck to everyone.Just thought I’d post this here for anyone freaking out like me, I called admissions today and they said decisions would come out late March or early April. They also said that getting an interview does not determine admission, so if you didn’t get an interview offer, you’re still eligible to be accepted.

Not sure Elon Musk would get as much of a free pass anymore these days hahaI think it’s safe to say an interview is required for admission unless you happen to be the director of an Oscar winning short film or Elon Musk or something else incredibly outstanding lol
Good luck everyone!
For sure, but not sure how much SEC fraud investigations and Tesla's recent messes impact that.I mean, "literally a rocket scientist" and "creator of paypal and the most successful electric car ever" probably looks pretty good on a resume.
Hey! everyone keeps saying the singer. Maybe he sings. When I looked up Rory Kelly and Mark Ronson both came up as singers. But they said they were producer-directors. So maybe.Mark Ronson as in the musician?!
Also perhaps it's the different programs but for screenwriting I only had one interviewer. Hmm..
I asked and they said anytime after the last interviews towards the end of the month. Someone let year has their interview on the like the 23 and got a decision on the 28th. I’m hoping it’s a similar decision.Did anyone by chance ask when we’d hear back? I think past years have been the third week of March but this year’s interview schedule is a bit later.
Hi Buusey,Hi all. Just got the call that I’ve been accepted by the department. Also big news: the faculty wants to put me up for the Graduate Opportunty Fellowship Program, which would essentially be full tuition for a non-CA resident, plus a $20,000 stipend to use on anything (100% is going to rent). The fellowship is not totally guaranteed so they’re at least giving me $5,000 towards tuition.
I’m so torn because NYU was my top school for a while and they offered me $27,500 (half tuition). I don’t know if I should pursue UCLA on a maybe chance I’ll get a fellowship (not sure what the chances are but apparently they get 2-3 per year). Also, not sure if it’s worth telling NYU and I could haggle for money too? I thought I was in the clear with decisions!!
Also, letters or calls of acceptances are apparently coming out this week.
