I'm still going through the waiting list and will continue doing so, but I'm thinking of closing it for additional names -soon-. I'm not able to work fulltime on the list considering that I am also working on several projects both art related and simply life related as well. And to keep up with the regular additions, I would need to do multiple commissions a day to catch up some day x:

I will realistically need multiple months to finish the current list if I manage to draw 1 commission a day. But I will re-open later on, since commissions have always been a source for regular practice, and of course an extra source of income. But I'll be using the limited spot-lists - system once again (with sometimes themed commission lists as well, like animated stuff for example).
Their advantage of being more manageable and controlled will really come in handy in the future.

The ultimate reason why is because I realize I'll need to re-prioritize my projects  ( currently my artwork is divided between: commissions, personal random drawings, animation practice, animated short-project )
And I plan to try studying at an animation school,, I knew that if I were to study something less specific like Graphic design, Illustration, or Digital design, I would probably not enjoy it as much, since I've been doing digital illustration for 6-7 years now. There's simply so much more I would like to learn through studying animation, plus it will be really damn challenging. (the other stuff would also be challenging but more in a "im not sure i want to be doing this stuff-way")

So instead of going for the nearest animation uni that is the most accessible, or maybe has the lowest prices,, I'll just jump into a cold lake and try to get into Gobelins next year.
If it doesn't work, then I'll do a 2-year study program to level up, offered by a nearby school, and try again afterwards. If that fails,, I still didn't do the 2 years for nothing, because the other schools I'm considering require 12 months of experience anyways (internship or otherwise.....  I'm unsure if anyone would accept several years of doing deviantart commissions as "experience in the field"..... :I )

SO! now looking back on the past weeks, seeing the pace I am in, switching between regular commissions and everything else,, and seeing the months left before the admission deadline,, I know I will have to set, at some point, "dabbling in animation" as top priority, both as personal preparation and for portfolio purposes.

The 12-month experience thing is usually a way to scare off people. If you can justify and explain with confidence why you think all your time in DA doing commissions counts as experience then you should be able to give a very strong case. It really is all how you present it that can make a great difference! Good luck! :)

Totally understandable.  
It's exciting but also scary making big steps.  Good luck with your endeavors! Good Job
