I'm applying to USC for a Masters in Writing for Screen & Television.
These assignments are making me lose sleep at night! "Emotional moment" is just F'ing killing me.
Is anyone else worried that they're just not interesting enough to be accepted? How eccentric do you have to be? Are there a lot of people in film school like Prince? He rocks and everything, but if that's who goes to film school, I'm cosmically screwed.
Looking for solidarity and neurosis out there.

Personally, I threw out everything I'd been working on for nine months and wrote new stuff about 48 hours before the postmark deadline, and convinced a postal worker to give me the right postmark even though I didn't send it til 2am, technically a day late.
I got in off waitlist...I always wonder if I would've gotten in straight up or rejected if I'd sent the other stuff...but I'll never know.
Best of luck, guys. It's a great program.
