Hey, anyone know when interview requests get sent out for spring applications?
I don't remember as our database dates are calibrated to fall admission. Check out the past USC spring threads though:
Oh almost forgot.... You can sort the applications in our system by interview notification date using the filters.
Hi, did you apply for spring 2023?
Hey, yes I did! Oh, that's amazing, good luck! I'm international too so hoping to hear something soonHi, did you apply for spring 2023?
I just received an email from a professor asking about my time availability for an interview. Maybe because I'm international that's why he needs to match my preferred available time
At first I was quite skeptical seeing the email as it was sent by the prof himself, from his personal email address, and he asked for Sunday. I thought this kind of information would be notified formally. I also wonder if the interviewer would be this one prof only since it'd be next Sunday. I thought there would be 2-3 professors/faculty members.Hey, yes I did! Oh, that's amazing, good luck! I'm international too so hoping to hear something soon
Oh that's interesting! Let me know how it goes and how many professors there are in the interviewAt first I was quite skeptical seeing the email as it was sent by the prof himself, from his personal email address, and he asked for Sunday.

I hope there will be another faculty member contacting you soon. Let me know if you get the news!
Our acceptance stats for USC has that info.I was also curious if USC interviews all its applicants, or shortlisted ones?
Idk if mentioning the name would be appropriate. In my personal statement, I mention my ultimate career goal is to create a filmmaking educative platform similar to Sundance Collab for preparing the regeneration of filmmakers in my country. I did some research about the prof and turns out he's one of, if not the only, artistic director of Sundance Institute I guess that's the reason the admission team plotted my application to be reviewed by him hahahaI got an interview for this Sunday too! I'm international as well. Yes, I definitely agree that even I thought this would be notified formally, I almost scrolled past the email because I didn't recognize the name!
Which professors are interviewing you folks, and how are y'all preparing? Good luck!
Mine was a bit less than 40 mins. I think we interviewed with the same prof. What questions did he ask? The questions that were asked were mostly not related to filmmaking and were super random, so I couldn't guess if he was satisfied with my answers. I saw him talking to someone several times so I wasn't comfortable giving long answers as I didn't want to interrupt them and have my answers missed.Just got done with my interview! It went well, I think..
How was yours? Also, approximately how long was it? Mine was 40 mins. Only hitch was that the lights went out in between, because I hadn't realized that the room I was sitting in had motion sensitive lights. I feel so stupid about that now, but the interviewer was really sweet about it, I just hope that that it didn't cut our time short. Trying not to dwell
