I haven't heard a damn thing but looking at this thread doesn't help me with my chances lolol. I got rejected from Stark already :( but it's okay I still have UCLA and NYU to hear from!

So I had lowkey hope up until now, that I'd get in. But just realized it's all gone when I felt my heart break rn. Can we create some playlists for this kinda hurt?

Same as usual. It loads for a split second, says there's nothing, then goes blank. The cynic in me says it's still down because they're uploading all the rejection letters.
 
in other news, if you want to feel better about ur rejection like i do i suggest reading the comments under lori loughlin’s posts and her daughters on instagram this indictment really made my morning hahahaha we love karma

Well partially good news...USC admission office said I met all the admissions requirements, so my application was sent to SCA for their decision. SCA said all the decision will be out by some time next week.

I'm really curious if the financial aid page for the people already accepted says something other than "in review" ...

How crazy is that?? Like why don't we all just pay the rowing coach a million dollars -- then we're in.

Did you call them or how did you find this out? (I wasn’t questioning it but now I’m curious).

Also my portal has now loaded without disappearing once and there was nothing there. So maybe tomorrow is “rejection day.”

That could definitely be the case, or the maintenance just took longer and we all wait for another couple weeks lol

yes I called the main USC admissions office and that's what they told me regarding the process...it's goes to USC first to see if you even meet their admissions requirements, then to SCA for their review.

The requirements are the basics like GPA and such, right?

Yes....which makes me wonder about their rumors of having a very strict GPA requirements from USC itself. I did horrible at an online college 1.9GPA and a 2.5 for my associates degree, then a 3.78 for my bachelors. But when you combine all them together, it's still very average and yet I still met the requirements according to them. Then again there is a pattern of progress. Maybe they took that into consideration.

I think the only GPA that actually matters when applying to any MFA is your bachelors GPA, so with yours you’d be fine and good for most any school. I think the others are requested strictly to know you got the degrees or possibly for a tie-breaker, but in a creative field I don’t think they’d use GPA as the tie-breaker. :)

I think if I don't get into USC or Chapman, I'm gonna skip my back up school in DC and just work for a year in Vegas to save up money and move to LA anyway.

So i spoke with someone at SCA... they said that ALL decisions will be sent out within 7 days. ALSO that applicants are still being reviewed... ppl who are waitlisted meet certain requirements for the waitlist.

Sounds like they have a particular rubric for each group.
