If you got waitlisted check the portal. I had an acceptance letter from 4/20 and still haven’t gotten an email.

In light of this news, at least one more slot will still be opening up here or at AFI because inexplicably I’m in at both. The doors aren’t shut just yet.

Best of luck everybody. <3

Glad to see people on this forum being offered a seat! At least one of them is mine! Hopefully USC can be more of a reality for y'all.

@ahdu Have you paid the AFI deposit yet?

Yeah I accepted AFI with enthusiasm. And now I’m that asshole struggling to make this call. But all things equal (I’m going into debt either way) it feels borderline stupid to turn down USC.

Also- just practical side (do the school that calls to you clearly), USC is actually cheaper than AFI for Screenwriting. And ask about how much time you have available for internships second year. AFI, speaking to a student not Anna, I was told he did 2 days a week barely but had to cut down to one as it was too much and that that’s pretty standard. Everyone has their own important things, but internships are one of mine and I 🤔 think USC has more days available for them. (But I’m not certain).

As an asshole previously struggling to make the call, I wish you luck. Ultimately I followed the money and, in your case, the money is with USC (@cdemonis right, in that USC costs about $15k less a year than AFI does.) That being said, kinda sucks that you already put down the thousand. Clearly the cost difference between the two already makes up for it, but still...that money is vapor now.
