My DD is waiting for a decision from Emerson in film production. She applied EA. Any other applicants here ?


My daughter is applying EA in the film production program too.

Would anyone happen to know when the decision will come out? I emailed the school but they only say around mid of December.

Has anyone in central time zone gotten theirs yet?

My DD accepted in Media Art Production ! First response from a list of 8 applications. Very happy but: no honors program and no info on any scholarship. I don’t know when they will send the financial package. We’ll see what happens with Chapman, Ithaca and Depaul. Good luck everybody.

Son was accepted to film/media production program! No merit info included :frowning: Hope there’s still a chance for financial assistance. Emerson is his first choice!! Congrats to all!

We got some scholarships and I think it said something about them being additional to financial aid. But that was it. Didn’t say how or if. For us we would NEED those. lol bc Oy with the tuition there. Can’t justify $60K when we’re already in UT Austin Moody in state which would probably be half that. Ugh. LOVED Emerson, though. So cozy and amazing location.

I think that id there is no merit info included that means that we will have to wait for the need based financial aid. I’m not optimistic on that. we’ll see…

super excited my daughter got in to media productions major…Emerson was her top choice so here we come !


yeah. i’m guessing it is what it is. Fingers crossed. Can’t justify paying almost twice. Good luck!
