USC Film & TV Production MFA Fall 2021 Applicants Unite!

Totally. A friend of mine found out he was off the waitlist 3 weeks before classes started.
Did he have the option to turn down the fall and keep his spring spot? Now that I've been accepted for spring, I'm filling in my Fall plans and it would kinda be chaotic to cancel everything last minute

So sounds like there could be some more waiting before all of them are given out.

If you could update your application with all the important notification dates, your final status (accepted, rejected, off waitlist, attending... etc), how much scholarship money was awarded (if any), your undergraduate degree, GPA, test scores etc that would be AWESOME and very helpful to the site's members.
