Film school difficulty

<p>How hard is it to get accepted into the NYU film school? I am an out of state applicant, with limited experience, other than making a few shorts. I am from a community college, and have a 3.3 gpa. Is it even worth it for me to apply? What do they look for? What are my odds?

<p>(1) Tisch is the best art school of its type in the country. So it's not easy to gain admissions to Tisch. Tisch will be most concerned with your portfolio - i.e. what it is that you have done and how well you have done it.</p>

<p>(2) Your GPA is low. The NYU average GPA for incoming freshmen for all four-year programs is an A-. For reference, a B+ is a 3.3 on a 4.0 scale, while an A- is a 3.7 on a 4.0 scale. That said, your GPA should be around 3.5 to be considered "good".</p>

<p>So don't bother?</p>

<p>I wouldn't worry. Concentrate on your portfolio. My son got accepted his ACT was 26. No IB or AP. His avg. was 88% so whatever that translates to a GPA. Your portfolio is where you will shine!!!</p>

<p>Thank you! I was honestly getting to the point where I wasn't even going to try. I applied at FSU for their film program, but I think that one may have just been a joke. They don't allow any portfolio work, and on resume/paper, I don't look nearly as good as most applicants. Glad to hear NYU cares about work. I'm going for it!</p>
