  1. @tunamelt Thanks for the encouragement I hope you're right! They didn't say when I could expect to hear back from them. Thanks for the info about Harvard, btw. Fingers crossed for both of us!
  2. @clauderains Tell me about it! USC was 6 out of 128 — that's like 4.6%...
  3. @clauderains The prof told me they accepted five people this year.

I'm applying to PhD programs at: UC Santa Barbara (Film and Media Studies); UC Berkeley (Film and Media); Harvard (Film and Visual Studies); Stanford (Art History with focus in cinema); Duke (Literature); UC Santa Cruz (Film and Digital Media); University of Pittsburgh (Film Studies and Art History joint program); Yale (Film Studies and Art History joint program) I might be applying to USC (Cinema and Media Studies) – Not sure a
  10. Hi all, I'm in the process of writing my SOP for PhD programs in Film and Media Studies/Visual Cultures/you know, that kind of thing. Some quick background: my B.A. is in Film Studies & Art History, and I earned a minor in English. I wrote my honors thesis on a fairly esoteric, relatively unknown film directed by Orson Welles (F for Fake). In my SOP I state that I'd like to continue research on F for Fake in the hopes of contributing to what is a relatively small body of academic work on the film.
