Just got the email for the interview yesterday. I was a bit worried as it's the last program I've heard from, so it was pretty exciting!

They provided the questions ahead of time and they're all very film-focused, which is interesting because during my USC and Chapman interviews, we hardly discussed film at all.

Anyone else interviewing with them or already have? Interested to know how they went!

Congrats on the interview! This will also be my first time interviewing with UCLA for the producers program. I can’t decide whether I like the fact that they sent out the list of questions, or will it cause me to over think every one then deliver very prepared, rehearsed sounding answers lol. Like you said, other schools have a much more laid back interview process that seems to just go with the flow. I keep wondering if UCLA is playing mind games and come interview time, few of any of those specific questions will actually be discussed. I hope someone who’s been through it before sees this thread hahaha and either way, best of luck!

Just wrapped up mine and we stuck pretty closely to those questions.

I usually feel pretty confident about interviews, but that one had me frazzled for some reason 😓😩

I had mine yesterday. I felt like it went so so too. I really feel like I should’ve worked harder preparing my feature film pitch. I thought I had it down well enough, but then I was rambling come interview time. No reason to worry now though, it’s in the hands of fate lol

Anybody know a roundabout time they’ll be making decisions?

During my interview last week, they said this week was the final round of interviews and then decisions would start rolling it out. We'll see.

Ive been accepted to the Professional Program for Producers but Im still debating if I should do it. Has anyone had any experience with these programs?
Not sure. The professional programs are generally non degree while this one’s a two year MFA. Likely still valuable with great seminar based information and the ability to make new connections.
