    • I'm not sure if this has been mentioned again and i apologize if it already ahs been answered but I was wondering how soon i could contact someone at calarts about portfolio feedback, i think it would be really helpful to know what I was lacking in. Also, who i would even contact at calarts if i wanted to ask that question. thanks in advance!

    • Got my decision yesterday, I was rejected. Though, I did get that sentence about wanting to see me apply next year. I feel way better about it than I ever thought I would. Everybody keep your heads up!!

      Do a lot of people get 'Although we are unable to offer you admission at this time, the Review Committee has asked that you be made aware of their interest in your work and their hope that you will consider reapplying after an additional year of artistic growth.' on their rejection letter? I've seen some screenshots with it and I'm curious.


      It wasn't on my letter. This is what I got:

    • Hello guys. Yeah I was rejected as well. I'm not gonna lie, I'm super dissapointed, exhausted and a little bit pissed but the reality is that the competition is undoubtedly tight, and just becuase I wasn't picked doesn't mean I don't have what it takes. It just means I'm not ready yet. Like others have Stated, art is for you, not for an art school. So no matter how impossible in may seem, if we've learned anything from the great animators and storytellers before us, it's keep moving forward!  Anything that's worth it is challenging, so keep at it, and I hope we can both be calarts freshman together next year!

    • Got rejected too :( oh well it was expected but we'll see what happens next year! Goodluck and congratulations  everyone!

    • Rejected too, sigghhh. The wait kind of prepared me for this, so I don't feel as defeated as I thought I would, especially because I've been talking to all of you! Don't let the rejected get to you and definitely don't stop drawing. I made that mistake and didn't draw for a year and a half, which is probably why I didn't get in this year. I really suggest you take John Mahoney's animation portfolio development workshop! I've taken it once, and I'm definitely going to take it again. It is $1,000, but he actually takes the time to look at all of your pieces and spends a good amount of time giving you very helpful critiques! I also went to Summer Session in 2015. It ended up being around $5,000, and it was really good for networking and getting to know people. If you guys have questions about anything, let me know! I really hope we keep in touch!
