    From what I've heard and experienced, crime off campus is pretty rampant.
    I know of a handful of people in my major, my year, in this semester alone who have been robbed at gunpoint on several...

    I'm a Sophomore.

    Freshman year was mostly a waste. I posted about this on the Ringling 2014 thread on facebook, and took a lot of flack for it, but it's true. 3D Design, Communication Design,...

    I'm not being negative. I'm just saying how it is.
    And what good is a discussion forum if we're only hearing one side of the argument?

    I just think there should be a lot more instruction in the...

    Not really. The majority of art school graduates have a pretty limited knowledge of necessary skill sets. Demonstrating knowledge demonstrates knowledge.

    This is why I've always had a problem with...

    I wouldn't recommend going to Ringling for anything other than Computer Animation or Game Art and Design. Even then, I've been mostly unsatisfied with my experience at the school as a CA major. So...

    Yeah, the Cafe has the best food of the 3 options on campus. The sandwiches and soups are really good and they have a decent variety of them. It's not open on weekends, though. Often times I'd walk...

    Ringling likes to see good artwork, period. Doesn't really matter the medium.

    You'll definitely want to start exploring digital mediums because they offer some significant advantages over...

    Mini fridges are good to have, but a tv is unnecessary because of the lounge areas like you mentioned. You probably don't want to spend too much time watching tv anyway.
  9. From my experience, most teacher's don't care...

    From my experience, most teacher's don't care very much about the specifics, but I'd still wait till your first day of class to figure out exactly what to buy. As you've probably heard, you'll never...

    I'm not disagreeing with you.
    GPA attempts (and fails IMO) to measure one very specific range of skills (which are largely useless) and ignores 99% of the rest of the human experience.

    My grades...

    I can't imagine why anyone would do this. [sarcasm alert]
  12. Yeah, no school during my year off. In hindsight,...

    Yeah, no school during my year off. In hindsight, I might have taken a couple classes, but I'm getting those done this summer anyway so it isn't a big deal.

    During my year off I worked, practiced...

    Yeah, no problem.

    I thought my year off was highly beneficial and would certainly do it again.
    Good luck with your endeavors!

    It's also very true that a lot of people who attend art school right out of high school are not prepared to succeed, both in terms of skill level and maturity.

    As Jason Manley noted, most students...

    Yep, the supply kit is a rip off. 90% of the materials they throw in there you'll never use.

    Like kedrew said, buy stuff online. You'll save yourself loads on supplies and can actually turn a...

    Always been a big fan of your work.
    This is wonderful!

    100% agree.
    I think it's definitely a problem, especially when instructors are pushing students to draw in a particular fashion and condemning experimentation. I've had teachers tell me explicitly...

    Yes they are, and they're nice.

    You wont be spending any time in the CA labs during your freshman year, but I still definitely wouldn't buy a whole other laptop just for preference sake.

    I got the Triple Crown Larry R. Thompson Scholarship, which actually means a double full ride and consequently they pay me about $45K a year, plus complimentary back massages from Larry himself.

    We have a lot of freshman here who range from early to late 20's.
    A lot of people who attend college right out of high school are screwing themselves because they aren't ready for the commitment.

    The Art Institutes are generally considered to be bad schools.

    I agree with Metalclay.

    1 or 2 years of community college will go by quick, especially if you are diligent with your art studies. I decided to wait a year out of high school before attending...
