USC School of Cinematic Arts - Stark Producing Program 2023

Check your spams emails!! I got mine a few days ago and it ended up in spam…

Congrats to all receiving invitations! When are your interviews scheduled for?

My interview is on February 6th. I saw some folks had already finished the interview. wondering if anyone can share would be appreciated.

It's very helpful to others. :)
 
JUST DONE. TBH, I am very nervous and couldn't sleep for the whole night until this morning. I probably only sleep 4-5 hours before the interview. So it's ok that if you feel the same way as me.
The interview is about 20-25 minutes, very conversational, and not formal at all, so when you start talking, you should be fine, but I know waiting is hard. I did meditation before the interview. Lol.
They start with introducing themself by the associate chair, four people in total. The questions that I can remember:
1 )why go back to school? Why Stark?
2)what are your long-term goals?
3)Are you interested in tv or just film?
4)what are you doing right now?
5) any questions for us?
In the end, the advisor said the results will be announced around mid-March.
There are more questions based on your answer, so it's easier to let the conversation going. Good luck to everyone!

Thank you for your advice!!!! 🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽
 
I had mine two days ago. It felt like a conversation more than an interview. It wasn't any of the questions mentioned above. All the questions were very specific to my experience. There were some questions that caught me off gaurd, but I think I portrayed myself authentically. They're very nice people. They did say that I was part of the early interview batch so there will be interviews throughout the month. I wouldn't lose hope yet. In the past interview requests have rolled out till the 3rd week of feb. Best of luck. Nerveous!! Looking forward to March.
 
Hey folks! Thought to create a thread for Peter Stark for this year as interview notifications are expected to be sent within the next 2-3 weeks.

This is my second year applying, I was waitlisted last year. Good luck to everyone in this cycle!
Does anyone have any idea when to expect interviews or decisions? I

Does everyone who gets accepted go through an interview? Sorry, I'm new to this and super hopeful, but have yet to receive an invitation to be interviewed.
