This is making me crazy. I've already enrolled to SVA and paid them five hundred bucks and just now Ringling notified me that I cleared their waiting list for computer animation. The overall expenses are pretty much around the same for both areas if you include the housing or living expenses of both choices. My biggest question is to what extent will studying at Ringling have for a future in CA? I understand that CA by its nature involves a hell lot of self learning accompanied along with schoolwork and that attending art schools is mostly about honing traditional skills and preparing you for industry work. So what is it about Ringling that sets it apart from other schools like SVA? Right now I'm currently leaning towards just going to SVA and if for any reason I'm displeased there I'll apply for transfer the following year. I'd like to hear what every everyone else has to say about this or about anything else I should be aware of for that matter. Also I'd appreciate if anyone in Sarasota tell me what its like living in Ringling's area as I'm more familiar with Manhattan.
Number one school in USA for CA majors...hands down no contest or so I'm told.
About 8000 bucks cheaper per year.
More quality education from what everyone tells me.
Have to worry about housing and living expenses.
I got no car...might become a pain in that area (correct me if I'm wrong)

I can move in with my brother and not worry about housing or expenses.
A lot of people I know are either in NY or are going to NY.

Can get kind of crazy in the winter.
