Now they do even less than they did when I was a recent grad, as they don't do a daily job email! And professors sure as hell don't prepare you for what comes next. My boyfriend DW grad was told to work in a hotel. Yeah, thanks for the help. And if you're only interested in writing, then you pretty much just have to slog your way through unfulfilling jobs for the same period of time I mentioned above and do your work on the side. Get involved in a writing group, take a class at a place like Upright Citizen's Brigade, write and produce your own web series.

And even doing this, there are no guarantees. My boyfriend answered phones for a production company. Sometimes he did script coverage. It was a real waste of time and money. I know someone who interned at SNL.

By comparison, it's a good internship read: One of my friends in the film department interned at HBO and that wound up leading to a job That's what she wanted, so good for her.

But that's not a writing job! I know plenty of people in the film industry who did not go to film school. And don't go into crazy debt for Tisch UG, because it will cut off all opportunities for you after graduation. Then, what was the point? Check with the other schools you're interested in to see what's possible. I would also recommend looking into UCLA, which, as a state school, is cheaper if you can establish residency, and has a two year film program that admits in the junior year which is top notch.

You take a writing workshop course each semester, along with a text analysis course for 5 semesters, 2 semesters of production courses 1 digital filmmaking, 1 stage production , and an internship for at least a semester. As far as where ppl live, do you mean where they come from or where they dorm?

They come from all over, and they dorm with all of the other students at NYU, there's no distinction when in comes to housing. In reality, I spent just a semester and a half on playwriting, so it's not something to worry about.

The reason why they do that is so if a producer sees your work and thinks you'd be great to write their play, you're experienced in that as well. It's a good background to have, and you get a perpective on your writing from a professor you otherwise would not have had, so I'm glad I had to take a playwriting course. I feel much more confident now that I'd be able to write a screenplay for someone if I were put in a position to, but achieving success really depends on the person.

I do really want to learn production skills, even though I'm more interested in being a screenwriter, because I think that being skilled in production will open up a lot of career opportunities. When I looked at the Tisch course catalogue, it seemed to me that the production electives for the Dramatic Writing program were there only to provide students with an introduction to production, rather than to develop their skills enough so that they could actually work in production.

I'd also appreciate if someone who knows something about USC Screenwriting program would post.
