Don't go here if you're not on full ride, don't go here if you don't love what you do. Those of you who are here because you love what you are learning at this school will loathe 90% of your peers, peers who need not try because they have nothing to lose by failing, mommy and daddy can pick up the slack, they have the money to do so. Grad school is a favorite option among mica undergrads because many students do not set themselves up for a real career at this school.

When looking into MICA LOOK AT THE PRICE FIRST!!!! MICA is very pricey, mind you it is a great school and I loved it there but I had to transfer out because of the price after only one year there. They do not give out very good aid if you are lower middle class just an FYI there. Also do not go to MICA with out money saved up. Supplies (and yes you use all of them) are very expensive. Make sure your family can handle the burden financially.MICA is awweessooommmee the community is great do not stay all cooped up in your room get out and do stuff there is so much to do not just at MICA but in the city and surrounding towns. Also the faculty is just fantastic they are open and friendly but there are some who seem a tad self absorbed and some who pick clear favorites if you dont think you and your teach click then get a different teacher! it is not that difficult honestly. But beware of Rich B. he can be very un helpful but also at times helpful.. he has his moments.

I think MICA has really challenged me these first 3 years and I'm really excited as to where my paintings are going. I love the program and the facilities are awesome! I've made great friends and I really like Baltimore too.. it's quirky and has a great art and music scene!!! I'm not sure why all the negative vibes about the city and safety because I've always felt safe and have had nothing but positive experiences here.
