The program is flexible and depends a lot on what you make out of it. If you are a comfortable with self-driven learning, and does not require a structured learning environment, you will thrive in this program. But if structure and guidance is essential to your learning, this program is not for you.

Pros: Facilities, staff (Lab track), quality of instructors and visiting instructors, the criticality of the program. The program is critical (conceptual, creative, current with contemporary discourse) yet also connected to a strong alum network and lots of industry events/exposure. Career office is supportive. Cons: Tuition, the "main" campus where all administration, library access and some facilities are located is a 20-30 minute drive.
