graduate open house [08 Sep 2010|09:15pm]

[ mood | embarrassed ]

So I've registered for a graduate in focus information session. Unfortunately I saw that just after registering that I had a typo in the e-mail I sent them (switched an m with an n, of course) and so have yet to receive a confirmation e-mail. I e-mailed admissions but haven't received a reply.

Worst case senario: I need to bring a copy of the confirmation to the info session. Anyone has gone to an info session at risd that can enlighten me if I'm in deep crap or not?

Also are there any grad students in this comm who can give me a brief overview about their RISD experience? I'm applying for photography but I really just want to know how you feel about the education you're receiving there.

question about social-ness [11 May 2009|05:42pm]

So, I'm a highschool junior, starting to look at schools. I visited RISD on Saturday and I LOVED it. Everything about it seemed awesome. I'm just really really worried about one thing. What are the people like?
I'm very social, and I like talking to all sorts of people. Is it super clique-y to the point where it's not like that? Also, as a girl, I never hang out with other girls. Are there enough (straight) guys at the school for me to hang out with or date or anything? And what kind of you know, "high school stereotype" do most people fit?
To me, the social part of college is a big deal, almost as much as the school part, and even though I love everything about the school, I don't wanna go if I wouldn't have friends. And it seems shallow, but I really want to go somewhere where I can have friends who are like me.

RISD & Brown Dual-Degree Program [02 Mar 2009|06:04pm]

I am a high school junior considering applying to the RISD/Brown Dual-Degree Program next year. Are any of you currently enrolled in the program or do you know anyone who is? I'm looking into Apparel Design at RISD, but the opportunity to get a degree at Brown at the same time seems like it would be a good idea (then I would have a fallback and a more well-rounded education). I'm not very familiar with how the program works because the Brown website was pretty vague about the actual nuts and bolts. For anyone who is or has been in the program, do you like it? What do you like/dislike about it (pros/cons)? Any information anyone can give me would be extremely helpful. Thanks! =)

Essay [22 Feb 2009|02:00pm]

 Hey guys,

This might seem like a trivial question but it's been bugging me for awhile. The website says that the freshmen application essay should be 200-400 words. I only recently realized mine is over 400 words and I don't know why on earth I didn't check it before I sent it last week. Is this a big deal in the admissions process? It's not even a tiny amount like 415 or something. It's around 550.. maybe more. I made my essay into a story, so it's not a big long snore but still, this is worrying me.

Folding drawings [15 Feb 2009|05:09pm]

hi, im applying undergrad to RISD and i finished my drawings but i am relcutant to apply now, becuase the website says i need to fold my drawings over twice and send it. I do not want to do this as the paper is kinda thick and doing so would ruin my drawings. does anyone else have a problem with this as well? and would it be okay if i sent them in a tube?

also, do they ever give the drawings back? because i would really like mine back.

Do any RISD students here still have the portfolio they applied to school with? [06 Jan 2009|04:30pm]

Hi! :3 I'm planning on applying to RISD next year and was wondering if anybody who attends still has the portfolio they submitted with their application on hand, particularly students that were accepted into the class of 2012. I'd appreciate looking at any current student's high school portfolio, though.

I know I should be focusing on myself, but I'm really interested in looking at accepted applicant portfolios. I figured it would give me a better idea of what RISD considers up to par. :shrug:

If any body has portfolio advice in general , too, I'd be very appreciative!

Thank-you <3 :D

Dorm Life [15 Dec 2008|12:18am]


I'm an international student looking to go to RISD (if I'm accepted *fingers crossed*). I've got a couple of questions about housing. First, how much does it cost yearly? Next, do they make you move out during vacations, etc. I read that the first year freshmans stay at the Quad. What was your experience like (at the Quad) and are there any single bedrooms available? The RISD website basically fails to answer most of my questions, tsk tsk! So I was hoping for some feedback about the dorm life at RISD. Your input would be much appreciated!

Thank You!

Summer courses [02 Nov 2008|08:11pm]

Hi everyone,

I'm a senior in high school this year with RISD on my list of school choices, so naturally I'm trying to find out as much as I can about the school.

I had a question about summer courses. I live in Florida, and a lot of major universities here allow freshmen to take courses during the summer (before their first year) so that they can get acquainted with the campus and get some classes out of the way. I'm wondering if RISD does this and if so, has anybody gone this route?

Thanks in advance. :)

Textile Program [25 Sep 2008|05:50pm]

I've been looking into the Textiles Program at RISD and was curious if anybody(current or past students) have any feedback about the program that may be helpful to me?  I have a bachelor's degree in applied design, so I think most of my liberal art credits are transferable.  Is there any advice for my portfolio submission, things to work on and include or not?  I'm trying to visit the campus in November.
