Hello, I received an email that I am waitlisted for the Spring. So I will wait to see if any other seat opens up.
My email said that I will hear from the school when all the decisions are done.
So I will be crossing my fingers to see what happens.
oh the waitlist.....it truly is a nerve racking place. At least before the waitlisting one could go onto camel, type in the things and see if by some miracle things worked. But now? I've done all I could do and must now wait....argh. 0_0
Question to all you potential USC students - I'm applying to the Peter Stark Producing Program, and I'm wondering what you know about scholarships? I saw that fridaynight said something about receiving and email with scholarship info, but I haven't gotten anything like that. Anyways, good luck to you all! Perhaps we'll be working collaboratively on some projects in the next few years!
bgardner To my understanding, all Cinematic Arts students apply for scholarships for the calendar year, so decisions are made by the start of the Spring semester. We were emailed an application for scholarships sometime after we submitted our applications. Again, it may be different since the producing program only has a fall admission. So the only time you would apply for scholarships would be when you have already been there a semester. My guess is to only expect receiving financial aid info during the application process.
Did anyone get in? I was placed on the wait list...Limbo my friends limbo...Does anyone know when they reply to those who are wait listed? I know admitted students need to make a decision by Friday, but I'm not sure how long it takes to narrow down the wait list.
I don't know about any other waitlisted people, but I haven't heard anything yet. Hopefully they will let us all know sometime this week, but I would imagine that they could be filling up seats all the way up until the start of the semester (with people who commit but end up not actually enrolling).
I will probably be calling them later tonight to ask about applying for the fall term since the deadline for that application is coming up rather soon.
In case anyone doesn't know, I called the admissions office to check about the application for the fall with still being waitlisted. There is actually a special way for this application to be handled that will actually have instructions sent out via email after all decisions have been finalized. The deadline will also be extended.
So, perhaps for now, no news is actually good news fellow limbo-ers.
