It’s a VERY weird and anxiety inducing thing and yet here I am, 3am and about 10 videos deep. I dont even know what half of the universities are but I sure am happy for the people getting in
Ouch. You should consider watching a happy movie like A Marriage Story.

I check this forum more than I check my email. I feel like the forum is a more reliable indicator if there’s been any update on the portal. Having said that, I check both like crazy.
"Watch" the USC applications and you'll be notified instantly anyone updates their application in the database. :) You can also watch the 2020 category.

They keep sending me a financial supplement asking about how many units I’m taking each semester, and I called them and they told me to do it later. I’m so confused 🤷🏻‍♀️

Interesting! I haven't heard from them at all since getting my yousc portal set up which makes me slightly paranoid

I don't know about the Screenwriting applications, but I believe the general consensus is that the Production apps are at the scholarship committees now, so maybe you are being considered for a scholarship and they wanted more info about financial need. Just a guess though.
man, that would be awesome. I’m still not gonna get my hopes up haha, but the unknown keeps me wondering.

I've been so focused on the "admission decision" that I never cared to go through the financial aid portion. Are we supposed to complete the "financial supplement" before or after we find out? Has anyone completed it yet?

i truly have no idea. I called yesterday and was told it’s ok to wait. Did you get the same one?
