Has anyone received their admissions letter from CalArts yet?

I’m definitely being impatient, but I wanted to know if anyone has received their letter yet. I also wanted to ask if applying by their preferred deadline (December 1st) makes any difference on when you receive your decision?

    Congrats! Was this for Acting? Also, does the decision come through the applicant status portal or through VIP Page? Thank you! Again, CONGRATS!

    No I applied for the Film/Video BFA, and I've heard a lot of Experimental Animation decisions came out today as well. I think they must be doing the Film department right now? but idk. Yes the decisions come through the application portal! They'll email you an "application update", just follow the link they send you and go to your application. then you can view your decision! GOOD LUCK!!! Wishing you the best :)

    I'm experimental animation and haven't gotten a decision yet - maybe they are rolling out in waves.

    I emailed the admissions office and this is what they said

    “Thank you for reaching out to us. The notification period for the admission decision will be approximately March 1 through early April for students that applied by the regular deadline. There may be cases, however, where the decision will come earlier or take longer. We send decision letters out at different times, depending on each program’s review schedule and when required materials for the student’s file are received. There is no significance attached to receiving your notification earlier or later than other students that have applied.”

    I got my decision for animation at about 9:30 pm ET last night (denial). They did not send an email, I logged into the portal and it was there. I had logged in at around 9:15 previously and nothing was there, so I'm certain the notification popped up somewhere in that timeframe, FYI.
