    Ringling is EXTREMELY expensive, and chances are, you'll be at least 100,000 dollars in debt by the time you graduate. This being said, Ringling is a great school. The teachers actually care about your success and most of the teachers are absolutely amazing. The education is worth the price.

    To expensive and i didnt require much new skills that i havent already aquired at a community college for fine arts up in Pennsylvania. Im sad to say that i got alot more from my experience at the community college compared to Ringling. I feel like i wasted alot of time and money. Dont choose this school if you arent completley finacially stable..there are cheaper nicer schools.

    It's ungodly expensive, but the curriculum is good if you know how to make it work for you. The media majors get the most attention. If you want to see your money go far, take advantage of the library and the career center.
