Decisions came out today. I am absolutely destroyed as I feel like my entire future plan is coming apart. I have other schools, but Chapman was my number one for such a long time. 14,000 applied to Chapman this year, and I thought for sure I would get in. I applied twice to their film summer program (didn’t get in but went to the more competitive NYU Tisch program for a month), went to every event on campus and was there 5+ times, did what I thought was an amazing interview, very confident in my creatives and film supplement, my letters of rec. are amazing, great Common app, and I thought my EC’s were well above average. I went to all of my school representative events, I attended the Dodge program film screenings, and I even talked to the admissions councilor in order to get advise to strengthen my applicancy.
I don’t want to settle for a school… Chapman was my dream school and it’s hard to accept that 3 years worth of hope and working lead to nothing.
Please give me suggestions for what I should say in my waitlist statement! I feel like I need to get in and I am so hurt that I will have to wait even longer to MAYBE get in. Here is some info about me.
What have people talked about in the past that got them off the waitlist?
GPA: 4.0+ (unknown rn) w/ 4.0uw
SAT: 1390 (didn’t have much time to prep due to classes)
SAT II: Bio (780)
School: Competitive public
APs: 6 (not many are offered at my school and they are hard as heck) and all 4’s for tests
Other: I am mixed heritage and the only senior applying for film production at my school.
Does anyone know how many film applicants get off the waitlist?
