It's an unprecedented time to apply for film schools in LA but here we are, friends. Good luck to everyone! Looking forward to agonizing and swapping essays together :)
I would love to connect and come together to see how we can strengthen our applications together. I spoke with a current student and she mentioned she and her friends did this.

So I was waitlisted for Spring 2021. I've read that the Personal Statement is really important. My original Personal Statement stuck out enough for USC to want to interview me. I'm having trouble deciding to alter my Personal Statement for my Fall 2021 app. Do I do a completely new one? Or should I stick with the same statement, since it got USC's attention?

Please help asap, thank you!

I was thinking of just editing mine. But I'm not sure where it needs improvement. If anyone can help me review mine that would be great!

Does anyone wanna swap personal statements? I'm a first time applicant so idek if I'm on the right track ;-;
 
Hello got a question regarding the concept for a feature film (#3 on writing sample): should I write it in screenplay format? I saw most film treatments are in screenplay format.
Also hasn't anyone NOT submitted their applications yet? Does handing it in on Nov 15 affect USC's decision... i am so stressed atm :(

Todays the day! (midnight deadline) How many still haven't gotten their applications in?

***VERY IMPORTANT*** DO NOT WAIT UNTIL LAST MINUTE!


There's been many cases over the years where people wait until the last minute and theirs a technical issue and they miss the deadline.

Don't let that be you!!!!

Hi everyone! Does anyone have any tips on how to forgot about USC until February? I’m always checking my emails, but I know deep down I won’t hear from USC for months
