extremely difficult... but fun and bountiful full of knowledge and skill as well.
Thankfully, RISD tends to only accept the top applicants. So unlike say, a state university which might be require to accept all students interested in a design or art subject, RISD can be pickier. A state university would then place this hodgepodge of freshman into a foundation class (if they even have one!) After a year of foundations, or other 100 level courses, they may or may not cut design and art majors based on GPA or maybe other factors (portfolio review). RISD reviews the quality of students coming in and along the way. But all those talented undergrads all take foundation at RISD. This builds camaraderie and is a foundation for study in a major for the remaining 3 years.
