    I think the CA students will know around early to mid-march. That's what it was like for the GAD major last year. The wait was torture, haha!
    Oh my gosh, that is such a long wait! D:

    Sounds gooood, and thanks! I had actually tried to let you all know about it before, but it never got through since CA is pretty strict on anything that looks like spam. I updated the blog with the infos on when we're meeting up again, so I hope to maybe draw with some of you then

    I applied for the 2012 fall as well im 20 years old and transferring from Academy of Art in San Francisco (even though im a tampa native which is around 30 min away) What if i submitted actual animations. My portfolio had some drawn from life cloths, the human torso, a picture of house i did in charcoals, but i submitted animations. I did a claymation project, and a puppet i made from scratch that was animated using stop motion as well as a 3D body i made in maya and photoshop work. Oh and a picture of Homer Simpson shaded and what not. what do you think / feel about that as far as acceptance. I didn't include many gestures..

    they dislike copying from images, they prefer you seeing something and drawing it. They also say pretty strongly that no matter what major, do not submit animations if I recall correctly

    I may be wrong, but I think with animations, it goes along the lines of, don't submit, unless you are "really" good. If your work is of a good enough quality, I think it actually is a good thing, but most of the time, when someone submits an animation it is just showcasing their weak points, and bad habits they learned, and not showing their technical skills, and ability to learn and observe.
    I think it goes along the same lines of, they want most of your portfolio to be based on observation, but i know i read somewhere, if you can create an excellent dragon, (like professional level) it doesn't hurt to show that. They want to see that you have the skills and talents, and observational skills to learn what they need to teach you. they don't want to see learning, but rather your best available work, showcasing your strongest points.
    IMO i think it doesn't deny you acceptance if you have animations, but I hope that these animations you are showcasing only show off your good skills. I remember reading, most schools like when a student comes in as a blank slate in certain areas, so they don't have to break bad habits and reteach. so if you are only showing a good foundation and good animation skills showing your best work, and abilities, i don't think you need to worry too much. other wise... what more can i say?

    but again, this is all from my limited understanding.
    hope it helps.
    Fudge this AWESOME place!!!

    Hi guys, first time posting. Just got my acceptance letter! As far as the animation issue goes, I'd never heard not to submit anything so I did send in a short 10 second clip. I don't see what the harm is if you're adding a short one in to an already strong portfolio with what they're asking for explicitly. Themegagod does have a point though.
    Go with your gut, if you think it's worth it then do it!

    Congrats to those getting in! ^^

    Hey, so I have a question about students who live on campus. I feel like it's a dumb question...lol.

    So, students...ARE allowed to bring their car right? I mean, even though you're living on campus? I'm only asking because I'm not sure how it works there. I know all schools have parking spots made for visitors, staff, and students who have to drive to class if they aren't living on campus. But is there a certain parking lot for students living in the dorms?

    Thanks! I can't remember if I submitted for Illustration or Undeclared, but either way my letter says Undeclared. I only didn't apply for CA because I feel like I don't have a portfolio to constitute applying for it. I'm torn between CA and Illustration though, hard choice!

    YES. You just have to make sure you register it/get the parking sticker/whatever it is thing. I obviously don't have a car - but plenty of people do. There are several lots where students can park.

    Only a few more weeks, friends! Hopefully it'll be early March and not later.

    To be honest, I've been pretty patient this entire time up until this week. Suddenly I realize how close I am to knowing and nervousness is beginning to really set in.

    I feel the same way! I've been handling it pretty well up until yesterday. Now I just wish the suspense would end. I'm crossing my fingers the letters come by the end of the week. I've heard some years they do...

    Guess I'll have to wait and see. :-)
