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.
Good luck!!

He was probably testing you tbh, because it is normal for non-film majors to apply to usc film school. Ryan Coogler is one of usc's biggest alumni and he wasn't that experienced when he went to usc sca for grad school
hopefully........ :( i'm hoping that he couldn't have had such a low opinion of my application if he decided to interview me???? it's funny you mention ryan coogler because he actually brought up ryan coogler in our interview. i'm just hoping that i responded to his challenges in a way he thought was acceptable!

is it true that usc generally interviews a greater percentage of people than other schools?? like they interview more people and then end up accepting a smaller portion of the people they interview? (aka getting interviewed isn’t thaaaat significant)?

They also accept a good number of applicants that don't interview. So I think getting an interview might not be an indication of acceptance at all. At least not like most other schools.

Not an answer to your question, but I would be curious to hear from people who were interviewed in the past and did not get in.

I was interviewed for Spring but got waitlisted and didn't make it
Aw man. I’m sorry to hear that. Are you trying again this year? How did you feel your interview went at the time (prior to receiving a decision)?
