How'd it go? Anything interesting or unexpected that they asked you?Hey guys, new to the forum but just wanting to chime in and mention that I just had my interview this morning after receiving a notification two days ago. Wishing everyone luck with their pending interviews!
Hoping it went well! I was a bit nervous but the professor that interviewed me was super friendly! The questions were fairly standard, "Why USC?", "What aspect of production did I want to work in?", "What have I been watching lately?", "Did I have any other interests outside of film making?". I guess the only unexpected thing was that he started off the interview by asking me what my questions for him were. Fingers crossed for the decision!How'd it go? Anything interesting or unexpected that they asked you?
it's just waiting at this point, which is rough, i'll admit. but if you feel like your interviewer liked you and that it went well then you should feel optimistic about getting in. i didn't do that well on my interview (yet felt like the interviewer still liked my personality) so i knew that at the least i wasn't going to be rejected. despite that i managed to get waitlisted and then got off the waitlist. the good thing about fall applications is that waitlisted folks get guaranteed admissions in the spring. so your chances should be high if you feel good about it.I received an "interview" on January 10th, although it was not much of an interview at all. It completely caught me off guard that I had received at call from USC... he was a professor who had, as indicated above, "wanted to get a feel" for who the real person was behind my application. The professor mentioned that I was not guaranteed admission at that time, but claimed he was very impressed with my application. I'm not sure how good those odds are, now I am very nervous with the plain possibility being accepted, whereas before the call, I felt I had no chance at all!! Does anybody have any info about this stage?
