    Hey guys! I'm applying for this program along with two others to start next fall!

    Are either of you living in LA currently? I'm signed up to go to the SCA graduate information night tonight and had a question or two about it.

    Thanks! Congrats on getting your application done so fast, "Operator"!

    I currently live in Las Vegas, Nevada. I was going to apply to AFI and UCLA as well, but I'm broke and can't afford to order more transcripts and pay for application fees.

    I'm applying too. I'm a bit nervous about answering a couple of the questions. Does anyone who has been accepted into the course have advice for how you should answer the questions and the sorts of things they are looking for?
    The question about the "Do you have a favourite idea for a film etc?" Do we actually need an idea?

    I guess I only thought of applying the last couple of weeks so my application will be a little rushed.

    I'm not exactly sure what they are looking for, however, I wrote an actual idea. Hope this is helpful!

    When I was in undergrad my professors said that students are sometimes asked what books they have been reading. Since a lot of times they expect you to stay up to date on current fads/trends within novels because it may be the next big adaptation for the screen.

    Hello All,

    I wish you best of luck with your applications. I'm excited to be a part of this community of aspiring students. I'm curious to hear your guys' stories and what made you decide to apply to graduate school. USC seems like an awesome school and I hope we will all have the opportunity to attend.

    I sent off my application for Peter Stark super last-minute and am crossing my fingers that things go better this time around (I applied last year but honestly knew that my application was weak, I feel a lot more confident this year!).
    Thanks to everyone on the forum who has helped out answering questions etc <3 :)

    Hi guys,
    Does anyone know the prompts for a scholarship application? Like what does one talk about in a scholarship application? Does anyone have information about what the prompts for USC scholarship applications are?

    I have not filled it out yet, but for the other schools I applied to I discussed how I plan to pay for my graduate school (Ex. Scholarships, Loans, Part-time jobs) and I discussed how additional aid would help me put more of my focus on my studies rather than trying to survive in LA. I also tried to make it abundantly clear that I would have no help financially from my parents and that my MFA would be my first major investment I make on my own.

    @Operator @Brynn Langford At least I hope that’s what the “Skype Call” is :D
    I’m crossing my fingers that you’ll get some emails too soon!
