ranking

everybody keeps talking about that this school is rated this and that school is ranked that…

I have never seen such a ranking or rating so if anybody has a link to a credible rating-site or list, please link it!!

would be cool to see how schools are rated because I presume that there is maybe a lot of “mouth-to-mouth” going on here and some don’t really know how and why there school is rated…

the design intelligence survey’s are the most credible source for design rankings… the poll design offices in corporations and consulting firms to find out what schools produce the best new hires…

this is a link to their website:

this year’s rankings for ID undergrad programs are:

Art Center College of Design (Pasadena, Calif.)
University of Cincinnati
Pratt Institute (New York City)
College for Creative Studies (Detroit) (tied with Rhode Island School of Design)
Carnegie Mellon University
Cleveland Institute of Art
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
Syracuse University
California College of the Arts

that said… rankings really dont matter too much in my opinion… i personally think that CIA should be higher on this list… but whatever
