I'm a first-year TV track at UCLA and so far, I've enrolled in one Hour-Long TV Pilot, one Half-Hour TV Pilot, and one Feature. Not that you always get into two workshops but it's possible and I know a lot of people that have doubled up in both Winter and Spring quarters.
I really love UCLA, but it was also the only one I applied to. Financial Aid and opportunities for TAships in the second year, as well as In-State tuition in your second year (for out of staters like me) was all intriguing.
UCLA is also a beautiful campus, parking is guaranteed for grad students but about $267 a month, and I have loved the staff I've interacted with so far. They are working writers with impressive careers who genuinely care about helping you find your voice and putting it beautifully on the page.
USC is obviously also an incredible school. They're closer to downtown, UCLA is closer to Culver City and Beverly Hills (I had an internship there). I've seen friends at USC with awesome guests, too. Either school is a great choice, congrats on getting in!
Currently in the professional program for TV writing and Neil Landau (teaches in MFA too) was one of my teachers. He was brilliant and sold me on the UCLA MFA program! I plan to apply for the upcoming year so I was wondering if you had any tips? Congrats btw!!
