Excellent graphic design program,

Excellent graphic design program, once you get past the difficult foundation year. The professors are the best in the field, but most of your learning will be from your peers, all of whom are interested and engaged in their major. My one complaint is that there is a lack of community.

Anyone willing to pay such a ridiculous amount

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.
