I wonder if the second program has any relation to Middlebury's Breadloaf School (if that's the correct name.)
I just have an incredibly hard time believing professional writers are filling out the common application and sending their high school transcripts to get admitted into the BFA program (listed requirements). And a simple google search of "USC film school job prospects" will provide a litany of articles that disputes that every graduate has jobs lined up before graduation.
As for the integrity part, I was insulted about when you said that "if you won't even research" (which I did) "then I suspect neither law nor screenwriting for you." Law may not be for me, but I am a writer; like I said, I've had a play produced, and I am a published short story writer. I've written screenplays, and have had three short ones filmed. Even if I didn't do the research (which I did), I don't see how that would correlate to me lacking motivation towards writing; if anything, it shows a lack of motivation to go to school to study it.
Maybe I'm being too touch (probably), but it made me angry.
