      I got rejected for the summer residency program... I'm wondering if I should even bother applying to the character animation program in the fall.  My rejection email said the following:

      Thank you for your interest in Summer Residencies at CalArts! We regret to inform you we cannot offer you admission into the program this year but encourage you to keep drawing and consider reapplying in the future.

      We also offer three online portfolio building workshops that you may be interested in. Please visit the Extended Studies Animation Page for information.

      Sincerely,
      CalArts Office of Extended Studies

       

       

      Does anyone know if this is just a default email or if it says something different for each applicant? 


      It might be worth applying to the online workshops if they recommended it. I know for my Fall 2017 application they didn't mention anything about applying for other programs, but some people did get the recommendation. Taking classes at local community centers or even applying for a one year diploma program like VanArts could be a good substitute for the residency. I wish I could say more to lift your spirits, but there are definitely places for you to peruse your studies. I wouldn't let anything stop you from applying to them.

      Oh sir btw is it literally for the applicants who apply for Calarts until 2018 January? And I need to show my instagram account in this page right?

      Nothing so strict! You are free to share your Instagram if you would like. This post is for people who are going to be submitting an application this winter and will hopefully be accepted to the 2018 fall semester. If you intend to apply for the 2019 semester instead, or applied last year and want to make a comment, you are welcome to post on here!

      Ok appreciate it so much-!

      I wanted to apply for Fall of 2018, as that's when I'm graduating high school, but I wasn't sure if that would be too early. 

      Does anyone have any suggestions as to whether or not it's a plausible goal for high school graduates to get accepted? 

      If I did get rejected and I attended a different Art school, could I still apply every year until I did get in? Or do they not like transfers?

      (sorry for so many questions!) 

      Here is my Art Instagram if anyone wanted to support each other! :> @deadoodle


      There is a large number of transfer students at the school, but it is also possible to get in right out of highschool. I've seen a few people online who have applied 5 times or more! You can apply as many times as you need.
