Wish UT didn't require GRE at this time but will probably start prepping for it soon.

UT Austin changed their mind!
On their website, it now says:
"Note: For Fall 2021 admissions, we are suspending the GRE requirement for our admissions processing. "

UT Austin will only take 8 Production students into their MFA this year as opposed to the usual 12.
According to my friend who attended a Q&A for interested applicants this past Thursday, four students from the 2020 intake asked to defer one year due to Covid and were allowed to.
I was not at the session -- I'm applying for Screenwriting, not Production -- but I thought people might want to know.

Do you know how many students they accept for the screenwriting program?

UT Austin only takes 7 students a year for their Screenwriting MFA. They confirmed that on a Zoom session for prospective students last month.

It is, how you say, tres competitive!

Deadline is December 1st!

How many of you have turned it in? When do you plan on turning it in if you haven't?

I highly recommend not waiting to the last moment btw as one year technical difficulties caused someone to miss the deadline. 😬
