Congrats @byisis! On the one hand, super gratified about the fact that I was right about when the acceptance letters would start going out. On the other, distressed that I didn't find out through an email of my own...

Yo. I just wanted to let everyone know that it's been a real pleasure getting to share stories and experiences through this site, and I know some of us may feel a little dejected after not getting the same wonderful news that byisis got today (congrats again, byisis) but, it ain't over 'til it's over. I've tried repurposing the anxiety of not hearing today on some editing. Hopefully you're all finding ways to keep your heads up and stay focused on the real goals of screenwriting during this state of limbo. Sending you grace from NYC.

Thanks for the encouragement @WizardsBrew! I think we all needed that today. HANG IN THERE, EVERYONE. :)

So no one else heard back today aside from @byisis? That's interesting; usually they release a bunch of acceptances out all at once.
Yeah, seems pretty strange... maybe they'll send more over the weekend? I have too much faith in all you guys to think that no one else on here was accepted!

It's my theory that they try to send out admissions/rejections over the weekend so that they don't have to deal with people calling them when they find out their decision. People in 2015 were emailed at 1 AM on a Sunday. I completely forgot how nervous it is waiting. I'm stress eating and stress email refreshing like all of you. I know this is going to sound very "generation-snowflakey" but I hope everyone here gets in. Good luck! I will report if I hear anything.

I've checked my portal and I don't have a letter, either way. I bet at least a few people here will get acceptance letters in the next days.

I'm an international applicant so don't know if that makes a difference in that maybe we're told first cos we subsequently have to sort out visas and also can't apply for most scholarships etc. But it seems really early and odd to me too...who knows maybe it's a mistake?! I hope not...

Oddly, in the last few spreadsheets, the international students that were accepted were notified AFTER the other applicants.

So, basically, who the hell knows? USC admission works in mysterious ways, I guess...

Miraculously, I was accepted to the USC MFA in Writing for Film and Television program.

An email that arrived at 3:15 told me to check my You USC portal.

This all sounds about right. Nothing for me. I've already started looking at LSAT registration dates. Congrats to those accepted!
