@Septopus7 Did a hard analysis of the past application cycle's data and found that acceptances historically started to come out on Sundays (late Feb to early March). Although last year was a bit of an outlier, because they started on a Monday.Why this weekend? I thought last week of Feb. was when decisions started in past years. Like the 24th or something
Undergrad in LA is a huge advantage that I wish I had done! Best of luck to you!I've been stalking this thread as it's more active than the undergrad one by a mile. Wishing you guys the best, the wait is almost over! I still have until March 21st for my wave of decisions
This is certainly not your "one" chance. Many people applied many times before they got in. Including @USCSCAAlumni/Faculty whom we just interviewed. They interviewed 4 times before they got in. Not saying that you won't get in now - but it's certainly not your one chance.now I feel like I have this one chance to catch up.
Disagreeing as well about it being your "one chance" - coming from someone who has a journalism degree from Tennessee and has worked in marketing for nearly 10 years that applied to four competitive programs for admission this fall. I've written a TON but never a screenplay. I taught myself how to write screenplays while in the midst of the application cycle by watching YouTube videos, reading books, listening to podcasts, reading screenplays...Me too. I was scared and opted for “safe” which makes me miserable and now I feel like I have this one chance to catch up.
I applied 4 times, not interviewed 4 times. But totally agree with Chris on this one (and I think Spielberg would as well).This is certainly not your "one" chance. Many people applied many times before they got in. Including @USCSCAAlumni/Faculty whom we just interviewed. They interviewed 4 times before they got in. Not saying that you won't get in now - but it's certainly not your one chance.
And USC isn't your one and only chance to work in the industry either.
Yeah, I have a friend who's currently attending the program and he heard back on March 12th.In short, yes but every year is different. I think the consensus based on previous years is the results begin to trickle out the last weekend of February; however it could take as long as March 15, apparently.
If it's any consolation, this next week I'll know if two of my projects made it into two different things, and then USC. All at the same time, which ahhhhhhhhh. The only reason I'm not freaking out and drowning my impending sorrows in Netflix is bc I have a deadline by mid-March. I wish you all good luck and I hope (I really do) we'll get to meet each other at orientation soon!As this is potentially the big weekend I just wanted to wish everyone the best of luck. I know I'm nervous beyond measure and I imagine everyone else is too. It's been nice having an outlet to voice those frustrations. It's made the process a teensy-less lonely.
