Hey everyone! I haven't found any threads for this specific application, so I decided to create one. Who's intending to apply for Spring 2020? I am an international applicant and was looking for some help with my application!

A Spring 2020 application category had been added too if you want to add your application there as well. :) Good luck!

I am! What schools are you planning to apply to? I'm actually working on my supplements this summer

I was put on the waitlist for Fall 2019! If I still don't hear anything this summer then that means I'll be attending in the spring!
Congrats! How does that work? Do you make up the class you missed in the fall? Stay an extra semester?

Right now only USC! Later I’ll try NYU, Chapman, CalArts and Columbia too!! I am almost done with my material (thankfully), just shot a short movie for the application 😇

Hey everyone!

I, too, am on the waitlist for Fall 2019. Just like TayTay, this means that I will be attending in Spring 2020 (unless I get off the waitlist for Fall 2019). Based on what I've seen on this forum and the discussions I had at Admitted Student day, there's actually a fair number of us. This seems to be common practice from USC, although it doesn't look like it's common knowledge. Probably because USC itself isn't too keen on advertising it.

In any case, I found this forum to be incredibly helpful both times I applied (got in on my second try), and I'd love to contribute however I can as well. If anyone reading this thread has any questions about the process, or wants another pair of eyes on their application material, feel free to ask me right here or slide into my DMs.

Best of luck to all of you! Hope we'll be seeing each other in L.A in January :)

Congratulations!!!

I'm currently in my application process for the Spring of 2020. Do you mind if I ask you some questions on what you did for your prompts, essays, portfolios, and work samples? Just trying to see how I should format everything and what direction I should take to send my supplemental material in.

Thank you so much!!

Hey everyone!

I'm just starting my application process for the 2020 spring term at USC, and just wanted to see if people had any advice on how to send different pieces in, and if I could see a sample just so I can get an idea of what USC's looking for. I'm currently working on both my teamwork prompts and the Feature Film concept. Any advice on what to do with those prompts?

As for the visual sample, what sorts of samples would be best to send in? Are they looking for more story, more visuals, tech specs, etc?

Any and all advice would be very much appreciated. Thank you all so much!!
