Ringling College of Art and Design 2008 Hopefuls
This is a thread for anyone who is planning on applying to Ringling for the 2008-2009 school year.
I'm a recent high school graduate from Chandler, Arizona. I will be attending this upcoming school year at a local community college taking care of some liberal arts courses so I have more time for studio classes at Ringling.
I just finished Ringling's precollege program yesterday. An overall great experience. I learned a great deal from both the faculty and teaching assistants. Anyhow, I took some photos of the campus while I was there; you can view them here:http://s186.photobucket.com/albums/x44/Jollesslauds/.

Oh, and I'm pretty much set on animation although illustration is my backup. I'm more interested in 2d although 3d is the standard.

Reason: added something
The 2008 threads have begun!
I may or may not be a 2008 Ringling hopeful. I'm definitely a 2008 college hopeful.
I'm Once, I have also just finished up the Ringling Precollege program and took the animation and figure sculpture electives. I'm a 2008 hopeful for the illustration program. I found out animation doesn't tickle my fancy, but ringling sure does. I'm going into my senior year, crazy senior year, filled to the brim with art courses of course.
Oh wow. The 2008 thread is here already and it's off to a good start.
I'm a 2008 hopeful for RCAD's Computer Animation program. I'm currently living in Woodbridge, Virginia. I graduated in mid 2006 and have been attending college here for the past year or so. I'm more of a "creepy" lurker than an actual poster, myself. I'll be sure to read most of this thread, though I may not post much.
I'll be sure to start a sketchbook of my works here pretty soon.
ya i just finish precollege too it was really fun and i learned alot im going to be a senior this year in high school so i will aplly for the next year soon im pretty sure i will get in.can't wait to go back to ringling everyone is so awesome and enviorment there was awesome too i miss it
I'm about to be a senior, and I'll be applying to Ringling as a safety school. The main attraction for me is the new Game Art + Design major. But their Illustration program looks pretty good too.
Make sure that on your application you mark that you're interested in GAD, not Illustration because there are a limited number of slots and you'll have to turn in your portfolio and application earlier. You can always switch to Illustration later. Just a thought.

I'm hopeful. Actually, I'm wishful. Its just so dam expensive.
$12.5k per semester + fees. That's over 25K a year (over $100,000 for all 4 years). So now I have to decide whether or not to sell my soul to corporate america and drown myself in debt for the rest of my natural life.
(I know I'm being dramatic. I just hate that the only school I want to go to, I can't go to.)
Hey, all. It's nice to see that this thread's off to a good start.
For those of you who are interested, here's a list of cities where National Portfolio Day will be taking place: http://www.npda.org/events.html. Though the site doesn't specify which events Ringling will participate in, they attended most last year.
During precollege, an admissions represenative explained that during National Porfolio Day, faculty from various art colleges will critique prospective students on their work for their application portfolios. It was highly recommended that we attend one near our city.
I just want to know actually a little bit about the skill level of the average artist in the school. *Points to SB in Signature* Do you think I would fit in on that level?

Two or three original pieces are fine and encouraged, but they really like to see stuff drawn from life.
BTW someone should copy and post the Ringling criteria from the first page of the Ringling 07 or 06 threads and post it somewhere in this thread to have a good understanding of what the school wants to see in students.
