Do not listen to the negative reports! This is the best film and animation school in the West, if not the world. People call it the Juilliard of the West Coast, and there are people here who turned down USC, NYU, and Juilliard to attend Calarts. The film department has important people from the industry as instructors, and the animation dept is world famous. Plus, the industry connections and opportunities are first rate. Forget about waiting till your second or third year to begin studying in your area of interest- they immerse you into it immediately. I love it here, I feel like I am going to get the career I have always dreamed of.

Ignore the drunks and potsmokers, as they drop out soon enough…there are good sober hard working students here, but you have to look for them as they are usually off working on their next film, song, theatre production, cartoon, etc.
