    Don't lose hope. They announced the accepted folks on the last day of Feb last year. 3 people in my class came from the wait list because people dropped last minute in the summer. There is always hope.

    Thank you! Out of curiosity, were any students in your class granted admittance without an interview? I have a friend who went through the program a few years ago now that said he had three classmates get in without an interview, but the process was a bit different then.

    Any info is appreciated. Hope you're loving the program so far!

    According to the spread sheet it looks like a few international applicants and one US based applicant scheduled interviews already and two have already completed them. Anyone else for the producing program get a call or an email yet?

    I had my interview this week.

    It was pretty much what people have said it would be in previous years. They did say in the beginning that they've narrowed the applications down and are having interviews with the applicants they really liked. However, I remember in previous years that some people had interviews up until the day before they sent out their letters - it ain't over until the fat lady sings guys!!!

    If I remember correctly (I was super super super nervous unfortunately) they said decisions would be made in the end of the month (so again, similar to previous years).

    I guess they really didn't like my application then. Oh well.

    You got another interview at Columbia and others so you must be doing something right! USC is a very different school and, as it is with other schools most things in life, preferences are VERY subjective.

    I called the office and they said admissions decisions will go out early March. They said they couldn't tell me if more interviews are happening or not.

    Whatever happens, we’ll all find our paths either way - I’m sure of that! <3

    Oh maybe they did say that (as I said I was super nervous, I’m still not sure if it actually happened or if it was just a dream haha). I wouldn’t give up hope on an interview email just yet, they did do interviews pretty much up to the last minute before I think :)

    But as I said. Things will always work out SOMEHOW in the end!

    Like Operator said, final decisions aren't announced until March, so lets not count ourselves out until then.

    Stark isn't the end all, be all to get into Hollywood, and like Anja said, anyone that wants to make entertainment bad enough will find a way.

    I don't want to stress anybody out more than you all already are (and I was the past few weeks!)
    BUT I JUST GOT THE CALL!!! :D:D:D

    However, I live abroad (it is 9.30 PM here) so they might have called me a little early?

    Gratulation Anja.
    I'm also thinking about applying to USC. I'm really daunted by the prospect because of the little experience I have but how was the process for us wishful applicants?

    @Ness Thank you! I'm not an expert at all (I live overseas and am still trying to figure U.S. universities out haha) but if this is what you really want I'd definitely apply and just try and out all your passion into the application :)

    @Eden Pretty Short - I can't really remember much after hearing that I was admitted :) I got an email with all the info yes.

    @Adrien Levy Sorry to hear that :/ But it's probably just because another amazing opportunity is waiting just around the corner for you! :)
