My application I feel wasn't the strongest. I can do a post later about it since I'm using my applications from last year for UCLA, NYU, and USC to help me with my application for USC. I wasn't too torn up about the denial. NYU hurt the most. USC hurt but I don't know I got over it quickly because I knew my application wasn't as good as it should have been. Now we know better.
First time applying and CSUN was the only school I applied to.
The application process was straightforward and easy to understand. The website itself was very intuitive. I had to submit a finished script and also write a new scene revolving around a mysterious item.
There was no interview.
I was notified via email and had a week to accept or deny.
I’m very excited about the program!
First time applying. The interview was done via Skype with one of the professors. They try to really have a conversation with you about why London, if you're able to handle the school, details about your work, and whether or not you can work in a team/are a team player.
