    Hi guys. So the way it works is if you applied for spring semester and you got waitlisted ( my case) you are NOT accepted automatically for following Fall semester BUT if you applied for fall and you got waitlisted that means you are automatically accepted for following spring semester.
    I got waitlisted when I applied for spring and they told me to reapply again for fall. I did and since I have not received anything yet that means I will receive rejection letter soon :(

    Hi Guy,
    Firstly, congrats to all those admitted and waitlisted for USC, MFA program.
    I also got the same mail from USC regarding being waitlisted. Since then I haven't been able to get my mind of this particular line in the letter - 'If we are unable to admit you off of the waitlist for the Fall 2018 semester, we will offer you admission to our Spring 2019 class'
    I sent the office of admissions a mail and then finally called them today to confirm the meaning of this. And the lady who spoke to me told me that the spot for spring 2019 is guaranteed. I forgot to ask her, her name though, as she seemed really busy and I was also really happy that she gave me a verbal guarantee for my spring admission.
    Have anyone of you, who have been waitlisted tried to contact the office of admissions? Did anyone else get such clarification?

    Also I directly got this mail. I did not get an interview request. This is the first mail I got from USC after I submitted my application.

    Hey Nidhi, I also called the office of admissions today...the staff I spoke to gave me a firm '100% guarantee of admission for the Spring semester'...he also told me that the school admits about 60 students for both the fall and spring semester in the film/tv production stream.

    Hope that helps!

    Hey Gxshi!
    Thanks a lot, that helps. Also now I guess the process is to just wait. :D

    To those of you who were accepted/waitlisted, how many of you actually plan on attending?

    Hey guys!

    I just received my rejection letter, so they are going out! I received an email and the portal message late last night, I assume. I just saw it this morning! It says it was sent out on the 16th.

    That’s all the info I have!

    Hi Everyone!

    I too have been waitlisted for the Fall 2018 semester with guaranteed acceptance for Spring 2019.
    Is everyone going to the meet and greet on the 6th?

    When did you hear? I haven't yet heard so I'm assuming I've been denied.

    my rejection letter contained an encouragement to continue to work on my portfolio and to reapply in a future semester -- is that standard language included in all of them (i..e, them just being nice) or is there some significance to that?
