Hey everyone!! There seem to be a ton of SCA hopefuls on here (and I used to be one) so I thought I'd make this thread in the hopes of answering any questions you may have.
Disclaimer: I don't work for admissions. Don't ask me if you're going to get in because I have no idea. HOWEVER I can give you some good advice on housing and classes and offer up my experiences at this school (financial aid, work study, the production process, USC's copyright rules, etc).
I applied out of high school and was rejected by USC (accepted by NYU), spent one year at community college because I only wanted to go to USC, and then transferred for the fall semester of my second year of college. Currently at the end of my third year. Last semester I studied abroad and could answer questions about that too! Also, for the record, I'm a Critical Studies major with a minor in Consumer Behavior through Marshall.
Feel free to PM me as well!
And yes, USC is the best film school ever and I have no regrets about coming here.
EDIT: also, if anyone would like to see any of my own film work I'd be willing to PM you a link!
