It's great to hear you're aiming for a school with the caliber of RISD! To identify institutions with comparable programs, I'd suggest looking into other schools renowned for their fine arts education, such as the Savannah College of Art and Design(SCAD), California Institute of the Arts (CalArts), and School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC). These schools have strong reputations and offer a depth of program similar to RISD. Additionally, Pratt Institute and Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) are also worth exploring. All these institutions have robust alumni networks and are known for their connections within the art world. Don't forget to look at their course offerings, faculty, and student work for a deeper understanding of what each program entails. Good luck as you broaden your search! Remember, the right fit for you will balance prestige with a personal connection to the program and community.
