Columbia College vs DePaul University


I have applied to MFA film programs New York and Los Angeles, but of recent I’ve been looking into universities in Chicago particularly DePaul University and Columbia College. Upon my research online I found that both schools have great film programs but I want to know more from anyone who has attended both or chose one over the other.

Which film program offers a (more) rigorous, creative, intimate atmosphere, and why?

Please don’t hold back!

Did you make a decision to go to CCC? My step-daughter is looking at CCC and by all indications it is a terrible university. I’m desperately hoping she changes her mind but curious your take.
