I'm planning on visiting Ringling in April but I'll only be going if Ringling in the end is cheaper than SVA which I highly doubt ^^;;. So I won't know until I receive my Financial aid Package.
At Ringling, people rarely have problems transferring from CA to Illustration, or any of the other majors really. I know personally know several who switched to illustration after freshman year when they decided animation wasn't really for them or wanted to do more experimental work. It is pretty difficult to transfer into CA or GAD though because of the higher portfolio demands and limited space. Trying to switch to illustration after sophomore year and maintain junior status is pretty difficult though unless your work is really solid, and by that time you would have missed out on some foundational curriculum.
Similar situation at SVA, the foundation years are pretty much the same between the two departments except that CA majors take an intro to computer animation course instead of painting.

I'm having the exactly same problemmm :-(( I thought deciding school would be just happy and easy..
I got into SVA and Ringling too, and both of them seem like excellent schools and don't know which one will be the better choice for me..
Have you decided which school to go yet??
