I was under that impression too, at least based upon what this site indicates
The site doesn’t explicitly state that an interview is required for admission, it states that invitations to interviews will go out through January. It’s kind of ambiguous and could be interpreted a couple ways.

Agreed definitely! I just mean in digging through previous years it seems like most of the people admitted had been accepted after completing an interview and there were not any deviations from that for this specific program. That being said, I know for other programs and based upon the article on this site, interviews are not necessarily required for the School of Cinematic Arts MFA programs as a whole. I hope for our sake that interviews aren’t necessary, but based upon the data available it definitely leans toward interviews.

I feel, I feel. The anxiety is finally starting to sink in. It's taking everything in me not to check my email compulsively *sighs* I guess we'll find out soon enough.

Thanks for sharing! I was wondering if COVID might have impacted the timeline for interviews/acceptances at all. I guess not based on what everyone’s saying? Who knows... I’m on the same anxiety train. I hope people are doing things to relieve their stress!! It’s gonna be all ok.
 
That’s awesome! Did they happen to mention whether an interview was necessary for acceptance? My apologies for asking so many questions
No problem ask away. For the Stark Program an interview is a requirement. They did say that they have a full month of interviews ahead of them so Im sure notifications are still going out. I assume I was one of the first to be interviewed and would assume that based on my interview notification of one week out that you can safely assume notifications will be going out on a rolling basis all month long.

Thank you so much for the information! I was getting a little worried but there is still hope! So happy for you that you got an interview! Wishing good luck to everyone in this thread!
