I think someone on this forum received an interview request over the weekend. So they could still be sending out interview notifications. Also from what I know, interviews don't really have much of an impact on the final decision.

yeah that would be me. I have no idea what's happening lol. This is certainly hindsight bias - but I should've asked about timeline. But then again, it's not really up to them specifically, so maybe I wouldn't've gathered anything solid

I know a recent USC mfa alum and he said that acceptances usually come out a good amount of time before waitlistings/rejections. That does seem to follow precedent, but yeah - no idea if the timeline has shifted

From my stalking of this website, in 2020 most people got their acceptances the first week of March, followed by waitlists and rejections towards the end of March.

in 2019 they started hearing on feb 16... so who knows!!!

did anyone else get a text and phone call out of the blue?
I just got a really random sounding email from what I think may be a professor? But I'm not sure if it's real or not.

I think it may actually be real now so I replied last night 😳.

It was like I've reviewed your application for USC Cinema School and would like to interview you through Zoom, are you free tomorrow?

And the email it was sent from was a USC email and the name was a professor there.

I am shook haha I thought interviews were over and I didn't get one.
