MFA Directing 2019- Let's Connect

Recommended Posts

Has anyone heard from schools?

So far, I have a no from Carnegie and Yale, and I have second-round interviews with UT Austin and Indiana. I'm still waiting to hear from Brooklyn College.

I was wondering the same thing. Waiting is torture.

I'll hear from Brown this Friday, or if I don't I know I'm out there.

No word from Boston U, which people had heard from them by this time last year, so that makes me think that's a no. Which makes me sad. I thought that was my strongest application. 

Northwestern contacts people until mid-Feb so they're still a possibility.

No idea about UCSD. Application status is "under review"

I hope the URTA peeps start getting some good news! It's been eerily quiet on here.

The waiting is enough to drive you crazy, right?!?! Sounds like everyone has made some progress in the process. Congrats to everyone! Here's my current body count:

Penn State - Rejection received

Texas State - Had second interview on campus - was told decisions will be made in 1-2 weeks.

Florida State - URTA interview went great. We were each other's last interview of the day so we went over time quite a bit. She said second/final round candidates would be invited for on campus interviews sometime in February. Haven't heard anything yet.

Ohio University - Invited for campus visit/interview.

UC San Diego - Still no word (just like the rest of us).

I've heard through the grapevine that interviews for Boston U are Feb 18th and 25th. So the theory is second round invites have been sent out.

@ManderLemon How did Sarah Lawrence go? Did you learn anything? I did not apply this year, but was curious for future years. It looks expensive tho!  

Good luck everyone. This grad school thing is just short of a mind fuck. If I'm ever in the 1%, I'm creating more grad programs and full funding for theatre makers. And if socialism ever works out I'm lobbying for state funded theatres that train directors :D

Got the official no from Brown. Which I knew already, but come on Brown! On Valentine's day!

Sent an E-mail to the contact person from Northwestern and got an automatic response saying she was on leave. So maybe that is why no one has heard? I'll report back if I hear anything.
