    Financial aid is predatory. You have to keep track of a lot of things so you don't get taken advantage of. Unless you get hefty scholarships, not worth it. Even the scholarships aren't great, by comparison to other similarly-priced schools. The big trustee scholarship for being the BEST in your entire major is $3K. That's the price of a meal plan. Or maybe dorm housing. For a semester. So unless you have very generous grandparents (or sugar daddies/mommas) you'll be swimming in student debt for the next decade.

    Too expensive for what it offers. You definitely get bang for the buck if you're going into an Animation major--the only major that I would offer for prospective students. Otherwise, it's much too expensive.

    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.
