Hello,
I've been looking into Ringling for a while.
I've heard that the chance of getting in depends on what major you're applying to. I'm aware that Computer Animation is the hardest to get into, so how hard is it to get into Illustration and in Game Art & Design? (Looking at either of those two)

Thank you!

The post under this one has some good stats on who gets in for CA: http://community.livejournal.com/rsad_freshman/129024.html

Anways, I am an illustration major and I believe they let in around 120 people (give or take, it changes each year). The difficult part is staying in, every major takes a lot of hard work but I've learned a lot in the end~

When I was accepted into the Illustration program in 2003 their admission standards were tighter than what I heard they were by the time I graduated in 2007. (I heard the standard change opinion from other profs, not just students, so I take it to be true.) 120 sounds like a high number so that would make sense.

As the commenter above me stated, staying there once you're accepted is the challenge. When I was a freshman the dropout rate between freshman and senior year was 50%. We were told during orientation "Look to your left, look to your right. One of you will not be here in four years." The girl to my right didn't make it and had to leave half way through our junior year so as melodramatic as it sounds, it's usually true. I take it that number has only increased since they increased how many people they take.

Best of luck in getting accepted, and be prepared to work your butt off once you're there!
