She was contacted on Sunday. But from what we have read from the article posted above and from the email she received it is very clear this doesn't mean she has been accepted. Apparently 1/2 the people who are accepted are not interviewed and of those who are interviewed many do not get in. Normally she would post here to ask but this herself but this comes on the 1 week she has an extraordinary amount of work to do for her internship and volunteer positions.

Do the interview requests for undergrads for out in waves? I know it depends on professors reviewing the application, but I am curious about the period during which professors send out requests. Is it normally a one-week span?

If any of you are applying for a different undergrad film program as well please feel free to create an application thread for those as well to meet your fellow applicants. :)
 
Just a quick update. My daughter enjoyed her interview. She said they talked about her film and one of her essays from her portfolio and the program.
She is in meetings all day today and this weekend and then the big projects for her jobs will be over for a while and she will be able to post more info on the thread next week if anyone wants to know more.
Good luck to everyone! I know everyone worked so hard on their applications. As a parent I amd so impressed with all the work that went into applying to these programs and I hope you take a moment and appreciate what you have done! It is an accomplishment in and of itself and shows you have the work ethic to go far in your life.

Someone on Reddit claimed he/she got an interview request today this morning. So the requests still seem to be going out.

No words from SCA yet. USC says decisions for all undergrad programs will be announced by April 1. Has SCA announced decisions for BFA earlier than other programs?
For graduate? I think FSU already sent decisions.

Oh. I don't know sorry. There's not a huge sample unfortunately but you can check decision dates in our database from previous years.

Does anyone know how often common app is reviewed at SCA? One of the most surprising things I heard during an SCA virtual information session is that SCA itself doesn’t really review common app. This question was brought up multiple times, but they vaguely answered by saying they have ‘access’ to common app, and that they can ‘request’ the application data ‘if needed.’ If SCA really has the final say on admits (my admission counselor said ‘talent-based programs’ make the decisions because “they’re the experts”), one can get admitted to or rejected by SCA without a single word on his/her common app being read by those who make decisions. This could mean SCA not considering crucial information available on common app such as extracurriculars/awards/internships/volunteers, common app personal statement, USC supplemental essays, course rigor, etc.
