Anyone willing to pay such a ridiculous amount of money for art school is highly dedicated, and you learn mostly from competition with your classmates, not so much from your teachers. It's a great environment for people who are certain that they want to be designers, though they concentrate more on the conceptual than the real world business.

RISD does not help you to get a job, though the name means a lot to many people. Many people are snooty and pretentious, and highly spoiled.

If you want to go to a good art school, (very good)
I would highly recommend RISD. Be prepared to
work ridiculously the first year, and a lot for the remaining 3 years. It's an amazing school.

I transferred into RISD and the school itself is fantastic. The faculty are amazing and I am definitely getting my moneys worth from the school. The facilities are extensive and the faculty and school are more than happy to help you with special interests and projects. The Liberal Arts program is also rigorous and Ivy-League quality. Be prepared to WORK! If you're not 100% sure you want to do studio art, don't come here. However, the RISD kids are spoiled brats. The worse their art is, the more competitive they are. If you can put up with them, it's definitely worth coming here.
