I'm sorry if I'm not someone who has enough authority to really post a new thread about this, but I'm impatient, and the incoming freshman class of 2006 is already accepted. Please delete this thread if it offends anyone!!!
I'm going into my senior year at an Ohio school, and I plan to apply for the 2007 school year at Ringling as a Computer Animation major. *crosses fingers* I was just hoping to get to know a few others who are interested in applying for the 2007 school year, and maybe getting to know a few others who already are in the program.
I have a few questions to someone who's already a Computer Animation major. Do you really think the huge cost of Ringling is worth it? I know that since you've been going to this school for all of your college career you have nothing to compare it to, but do you think those big bucks really help put you ahead of the rest of the pack? The names of the companies who hire out of Ringling are just jawdropping, but those are just names... How many students really are hired out of the graduating class, and how many of them to really big-named companies?
I also have a couple of quick portfolio questions. As far as a sketchbook goes, does Ringling encourage using one as a portfolio piece? If so, how does one go about sending it long distance? What about as a digital presentation? And as far as that goes, which does Ringling prefer--actual slides or a DVD slideshow? I'm sorry for all of the questions, but any answers are truly appreciated!
I hope to meet some other (hopefully ) future classmates!
