| md institute has spent a lot on modern buildings with all the expensive tuition people have handed over to them, i hope they help students on the serious lack of art jobs they will encounter after they graduate from there. a funny town baltimore is, sometimes very scary. wish i had done a year or two of MICA then done peace corps. the school would be better if they taught you how to paint and how to fix a car, build a home, how to create solar panels, etc. i learned more while working at all the low wage jobs in baltimore. |

| I'm a 20 year old female from NYC. My first year at MICA was a difficult adjustment- Baltimore is a hard place to get used to when you come from such a stimulating city as I did. However, Baltimore itself would have to be my biggest negative about MICA. MICA is expensive, however if you are talented they will give you aid. I received about 30 percent of my tuition covered for from my portfolio alone. Although it isn't the easiest thing in the world to pay for school, I love it here. The school itself is amazing- the facilities are unbelievable, and often a lot of supplies are provided for you. There are a lot of jerky hipsters here, but not everyone is like that ( I had enough of that garbage in nyc.) I have had one crappy professor but I do not feel he is an overall reflection of the school. Everyone here is extremely willing to help you with your work. If you are serious and semi-independent, you will do very well here. The work load is intense, but if you love art (and your courses in general) you will not have a difficult time.|
There are some people here that are uptight and snobby, but I think you find a lot of that at art schools in general. I have met a lot of great people, and don't exactly feel as though there are cliques, except for hipsters. Being here, I have been introduced to so many new things. I have learned a lot too. The place is about what you get out of it, so if you are willing to do the work and open yourself up to learning (do not come in with the "i'm the best artist in the world attitude") then you will ultimately better yourself by being here.
