It is only as good as you make it. The teachers are not going to go out of their way to hold your hand and walk you through processes. You must have a strong work ethic in order to succeed and get the most out of the education.

It's overpriced for what they offer. Is not so bad, but it is really expensive for the little they offer. In order to attend to Ringling you need to be self-thaught, you are gonna attend to classes and do not expect for them to give you any theory. They are going to assign you a bunch of assignments which you'll have to find out by your own how to solve it. Some instructors will be interested in your work and some don't. Ringling is a school based in practice and individualism so do not expect something more. In somehow they teach you how to be professional and get you ready which is good because most of the students are really childish.
