Still no reply sigh* :(. I emailed the department the other day and got this reply:

"Since UCLA switched to a new application system, there has been a delay in application decisions. The admissions committee is still reviewing applications, so we have not finished sending out all decisions yet. However, you should receive your decision soon via email."

Ugh this waiting is agony >~< It might be a bad sign if it's taking this long.

Oh, I was denied LOL, but that's ok, I knew that was going to be the result since they took so long to send out decisions, but good luck to you though! Hang in there!

I just got off the wait-list and have been accepted into the MFA Production/Directing program. Best news today. Yay. Good luck to those who are still waiting to hear back.

Incoming MFA prod/direct hombre here. I am looking around for roommates for a 3+/-bedroom house about $800 - $1200 (per person) depending on where we look. I'd like to stay off campus so that I can pump any extra cash into my films. Anyone interested in living off campus and saving a few shells in the process, please PM me and let's start searching! Keep in mind, If we wind up a few minutes from campus we can car pool!

@robert @CSBBATSE congrats on getting off the waitlist! Just curious can you share details regarding the notification? Still on the hook here and seeing bummed out...

@gxshi Thank you and good luck to you! I was called two weeks ago by a professor and offered a spot. I accepted that spot last week after emailing with second and third year UCLA students. I know that the waitlist is still open, but I am not sure how many people have committed. Hang in there and I hope another spot opens up for you!

After everything, being rejected for 2nd time by UCLA; I received an email stating i was accepted to the professional screenwriters program(ucla). Not a big deal, looks like they accept anybody. But, since I'm damn near destitute and can't pay the $2000, i won't be attending. Even though I want to.

That's unfortunate, you can't take out any loans to pay for it?

I'm finally catching up on reading all of these posts. (I had a backlog of 900+ unread) Congrats to everyone! Be sure to come back to the site to share your experience at the school after attending for a while. :)

I hope everyone found the site helpful!
