Hi, my name is Alex, 23 years old. I'm a new one in this forum.
I didn't apply to Calarts yet bcoz i've just been in US for 7 months and now i'm just getting some art classes and English class in community college. I'm an asian. When I was in my country, i was studying Animation in an Art university but didn't finish, and my country is so bad about animation so I decided to move to US. I fell in love with animation when the first time I saw the movies "Nightmare before Christmas" and "Angel and Idiot", so that why i want to be an animator.
I wonder if I apply to Calarts for Spring semester next year, and i didn't have GED or US high school diploma or even i didn't finish college, I have only the high school certificate in my country, so is that ok? Or i should get GED classes now? I don't know Calarts require it or not, so anyone know it, plz help me. I also worry about the tuition fee in Calarts, i wonder how students in this school can pay for it, when FA is not enough :(
Nice to meet u guys, I hope I can get the accepted letter for next year, can't wait to meet many artists in this school :D

Hi Alex! I think you don't have to be worried about an US high school diploma or GED because I'm also an international student and I only have the highschool diploma from Germany (I also do't have this GED stuff). But you defintely should have good TOEFL test results!
Really :O So how could u send them the Letters of recommendation? did u give them the letters from art teachers in Germany?
Ahh, hello. I think I'm a tad late with my intro and everything. My name's Justin, I'm still in my last year of highschool and just turned 18 (my birthday was the day of the new student reception, aha.) I don't think I got to meet a lot of you then since I slipped off at some point to talk to some of the current students in the lounge.
I have to admit I was fairly surprised I got in to CalArts, and it looks as though there are some very powerful minds on this thread alone... how intimidating, I look forward to properly meeting you all at some point though~
I don't post much online at the moment, but here's the tumblr I occasionally update (and just did.)
