Congrats!!! Are you going to make the switch?
Thank you! I have no idea. Chapman makes a lot more sense logistically because I live in OC and would have free housing. But UCLA offers better financial aid (the lower cost of attending is offset by the fact that I'd have to pay for housing in LA). Also, it's UCLA. Mind blown.

Congratulations! You know what my vote is 😝. But sincerely I know you were stressing for a while, I hope the next steps come easier.

Did you already lay the deposit down for Chapman?

Yup. So that's non-refundable. This is wild. My brain is going to implode. Never give up, y'all, because you might suddenly get an answer May 2nd out of nowhere and then have OPTIONS.

AND I got reservations for Galaxy's Edge at Disneyland earlier. What a day. 😂😂😂

That’s nuts! Had they just never said anything to you about acceptance/waitlist/rejection at all!?
I never heard anything and was just waiting for my official rejection letter.

Congratulations!!

Have you gotten the official letter from the UCLA Grad Division, or did you just accept on Acceptd? I haven't gotten the official letter yet, and it's been about a week.
I got the letter on Acceptd, and then I logged in to the UCLA Graduate Division website the next day. The letter was there and dated the 3rd.

Glad we'll get to see you in the fall!

AND you should TOTALLY come to Showcase! It's on Monday, June 10th, and you're not too far away either. You'll get to meet a lot of folks and get a real feel for the place, it's gonna be a good time.

What’s the showcase?

What’s the showcase?
It's this annual awards gala of sorts; screenwriting students submit works for scoring by industry folks (managers, agents, other writers, etc.) and then those scores are tallied and awards given out in the big categories (Feature Drama, Feature Comedy, Drama Pilot and Comedy Pilot).

For incoming students it's a great way to meet people who will teach you and people who you'll be taking classes with. I'm not sure how they're handling tickets this year as far as you guys coming in, but if I hear anything about it I'll post about it.

Hi all! I figured the majority of us have already gotten our acceptances and the waitlisted folks have already heard back! I'm so excited to meet everyone, and would love to connect with you all (I've already connected to @biacelani who opened the UCLA group) and Philip! Since we're gonna be in this together for two years, feel free to add me on my social media(message me! Figure that would be wise) and let's connect! I know some people are looking for housing too and as an international student I'd definitely like to connect beforehand! Idk if you are down but I could start a FB group too? Let me know!

The Current first years may or may not be starting a Facebook group for you guys, so I'd hold off on that for now!
