Hello! Is there anyone applying for the Peter Stark Producing program this year? Submitted my application on 11/15. Very nervous!!

      Also here's last year's thread:

       
      I've consolidated all the USC pages in our review database into one:

      USC School of Cinematic Arts

      USC School of Cinematic Arts

      For more than 90 years, the University of Southern California has trained the next generation of prolific filmmakers. As the nation's first institution of higher learning to offer a bachelor's degree in film, the School of Cinematic Arts remains at the forefront of emerging filmmaking trends...

      The stats are combined too:

      USC School of Cinematic Arts Acceptance Rate (All Programs/All Years)
      28%
      Admitted
      227  out of   820   Admitted
      17%
      Waitlisted
      138  out of   820   Waitlisted
      55%
      Not Admitted
      455  out of   820  Not Admitted
      Admitted
      Waitlisted
      Not Admitted


          But don't worry you can still go by individual program:

              Hi everyone! I received my invitation to interview for Stark earlier today. Keep an eye out for your email and remember to check your spam, it will be sent from pstark@cinema.usc.edu email. I would give it a few days to see if you hear back, I know they tend to roll-out their invitations :)

              Congratulations, Erik! I noticed you applied to this program last year and received an interview on January 26th. However, I observed that most others got interviews on February 2nd. I haven't received an interview yet and was wondering if they send interviews for this program in a staggered manner. Thanks!
               
              Hey everyone! I applied to the program this year. I was waitlisted last year. Hoping to receive an interview request if/when they are sent out next week!
               
              Hi everyone! Wondering if anyone else heard anything from Stark? Seems like now only one of us in this thread received an interview invitation so far🤞
               
              Hi everyone! I received my invitation to interview on the 24th as well.
              Just a heads up they will offer you a zoom interview time (mine was for mid Feb) and I had a week to confirm my slot with them. Subject of email should be 'Interview Invitation: Peter Stark Producing Program' and they mention the interview will last no longer than 20 minutes.
              Hope this info helps and best of luck to everyone :) -- keep checking those inboxes!
