USC School of Cinematic Arts Film & TV Production Spring 2020

Hello there! I decided to stop lurking and comment. I am a first-time applicant and had a Skype interview over the weekend too.

I think that youSC being down has nothing to do with decisions coming out. Hopefully, we hear from them soon!
 
Well...

Today could be the day (fingers crossed). Good luck to you all. I have a feeling some decisions will be out today. If not today, then by the end of this week.

How's everyone else feeling? Positive? Confident? Nervous? All of the above?
 
I got an email yesterday saying that my transcripts weren't in and my application would be dismissed if not in by Tuesday; but I believe I straightened the ordeal out.
Still very nervous and I don't know if this is a good or bad sign.
Possibly they just that they haven't decided yet.
 
I will say the forum this year ain't very active compared to the past.
Although,
I don't know if I'd feel any better if it was active.

For spring threads it's about normal or even more active actually.


Last year's spring thread only had two pages by this point.

It's the regular fall threads that go ballbusters.

That makes sense less people apply in the Spring.
A year ago today someone got the first acceptance on the site:


Aughhh I was just accepted! Ohmygosh ohmygosh I’m literally shaking
 
I also saw the dates of first responses posted and decided to give it an update:

2014: Oct. 10th, 2013
2015: Oct. 16th, 2014
2016: Oct. 16th, 2015
2017: N/A
2018: Oct. 15th, 2017 (letter dated Oct. 14th)
2019: Oct. 19th, 2018

Seems like this pool of applicants are receiving admissions notification the latest compared to other years. Worth mentioning that the only other year that sent notifications over a weekend was Spring 2018 (Dated on a Saturday, received on Sunday).

Fingers crossed.
