I have a BFA in Photo from Rhode Island School of Design, one of the best schools in the country, often beating out every school, even Yale in national college rankings, and is one of if not the most prestigious and competitive schools in the world with a far reaching reputation.
from the perspective of the magazine world (which is pretty photo dependent), the "RISD" thing means very little, the work experience is what employers are more than likely to center on. Thats just the experience I've had in the 6+ yrs I've been in the magazine world.
One of your best bets is to check with artsquad.
They have locations in Dallas/Fort Worth.
