Alright I decided to go to Marymount veryBrightPerfomance Arts
Alright I decided to go to Marymount very last minute as an Acting Major. It was one of the best decisions of my life. I am a BFA Acting major and I had the best experience with my acting class. We really became a family and had to work together and watch each other in rehearsals. The acting classes are very challenging depending on your background and the professor but overall it is a great program. Now some of the academic courses seem not that difficult but honestly I pushed myself to the next level and was very challenged academically as well. You as the student has to decide if you want to push yourself. Overall the student body is good. Not everyone is super friendly but I have met some amazing people. There are great clubs and organizations but again it is up to YOU how much you get involved. The school offers a lot of opportunities and honestly it is the students who don't take advantage of them! If you love sports I would recommend looking at different schools because Marymount is not a sports involved school and only has one soccer club. Most of the time the students who don't like Marymount aren't involved! And if they are and still don't like the school it is because they feel above everyone else! Now if you are not a performance major let me warn you this school is very focused in the arts. But if you have toured the school and met professors and feel good about it then do it! College is about getting OUT OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE! And if you go to a college and don't like it then TRANSFER!!!! Not every college is perfect for every type of person! Overall Marymount was the best decision of my life!

Question
Overpriced,Music - Performance
Overpriced, not many performance opportunities, no help finding auditions and jobs. Lady in chg of performance program, Pat, very rude. I myself was not overweight but she made fun of fat students on many occasions.

Question
DO NOT GO TO MARYMOUNT unless you're lookingQuite BrightOther
DO NOT GO TO MARYMOUNT unless you're looking to be a part of a snooty "exclusive" theatre community. If you are not a theatre major, please do yourself a favor and go somewhere else. You won't fit in here. Everyone here believes they're entitled and continues all of their high school drama. They are all about the spotlight and when someone takes it away from them or denies their spotlight, they scream and claw at you. I had a roommate that wanted to be a star during the first two months of school. I found out after I moved out of that room that the majority of the student body is only at Marymount to "make it big" or "get famous". This girl would constantly explain to us how she has "no competition" and is "better than Idina Menzel" and I think if you're coming to this school to be a star, save yourself the student debt and just go make it big. The faculty supports those who act like this. I dealt with a dumb MT one day who I was working with in a club (since I was an executive in one of the school clubs) and I complained to the Club chair about him not doing what he was supposed to and he gave me the option to "bruise his ego" by publicly dethroning him. The fact this was an option according to the FACULTY says a TON about this school. Please do yourself a favor in not coming here. I was an active member of my class, took full advantage of the city, was very close to much of the student body and faculty, and still had such a horrible experience. (Most people say its those who aren't active in their school that are the most miserable - thats why I feel like I must mention this).
