It was great! And very cool to meet some of you forum-goers in real life, and talk to current students/faculty as well! They certainly do a lot to try to sell you on the program, which makes a great deal of sense. Really something I wish more programs did, but other than NYU, seems like most schools don't have anything similar.
I hope you got in- but I got that financial aid email a while ago and was rejected.FYI, I called USC's admissions department and it turns out they DID make a decision on me but some computer screw up means it didn't get sent out. So I should hear from them in 24 hours. If you haven't heard yet, try giving them a call.
Also, not that I'm expecting good news this late in the game but I got an email from them yesterday about financial aid deadlines. The email specifically said not to treat it as an indication of a decision having been made but I was curious if anyone already rejected from USC got the same email?
Updated Application Tracker so you can now choose that you declined Admission.So I am officially going with AFI folks, so that means a least one spot will be opening up at USC for the admitted class. So for anyone who got waitlisted, or somehow still hasn't heard back (which I feel might be the Screenwriting divisions way of waitlisting), there will at least be one spot open for you. I wish I could tell the school with my deferral to pick someone specifically on these forums, but alas
Yes!FYI we're organizing a June Meetup in the LA FilmSchool.org group:
