Maryland Institute College of Art Reviews
I am really glad I went to art school even though it didn't necessarily lay out that much of a career path for me. I do wish I had been educated more about the financial aspects of a college education. Just because you are eligible for a loan for $20K a year doesn't mean you should take it!
I have had an amazing experience at MICA!!! From the very first relationship forged through the great institution with my admissions counselor I have felt loved. Everything about my application process felt über personal and customized to me. MICA let me know early on that they wanted me as a student and consistently stayed in touch through the application process. This made it very easy for me to pick which school to go to. I mean, why not attend the school that makes you feel special and one that willing to give such a huge scholarship & generous financial aid package? Wouldn't you?! My academic advisor continued the streak of amazing people whom I would meet and come to hold dear to my heart. She helped me figure out what classes and instructors would be best for me based on my passions and learning style. The courses are rigorous and MICA definitely prepares us to be more than just art makers. We leave each class more rounded and able to make a difference in the world. I have met more future world changers at MICA than I thought could possibly exist. I would highly recommend MICA as higher education super house. If one simply takes advantage of all of the resources made available to students and alumni there is no choice but to succeed in ones arts career of choice. I now have artist friends working in their dream jobs all over the world and I can't wait to join them thanks to MICA.
