Marymount is not for everyone but if haveSuper BrilliantPsychology
Marymount is not for everyone but if have an genuine idea of what the school is about and feel it is right for you then you will be fine. I honestly believe most of the bad reputation comes from students who either a) do not realize that Marymount offers a slightly different college experience, but equally wonderful or b) they simply to not know what they want out of a collge coming in to it. People will transfer and have complaints, but its important to remember that people will have those same complaints about any school. No school is perfect and Marymount is no different. You have to find the place that is right for you

The reason I want to say something aboutNot so brightPolitical Science
The reason I want to say something about Marymount Manhattan, is for the people who are looking into the school, reading these comments and second guessing what could possibly be an amazing move for them. I went to Marymount Manhattan as a transfer last spring from LIU Brooklyn, which was a complete and total joke. The reason I chose MMC is because it was close to my house and I needed to ground myself after the awful semester I experienced at LIU. Marymount felt heaven sent. To be honest? the staff is incredible, the people are welcoming and the experience is very New York.

I saw a few negative comments about people "don't come to this school, not worth the money, you won't have the college experience"... those people CLEARLY are not familiar with New York, nor what college is suppose to really be about. I am not 21 and I go out drinking all the time, even when I don't have my fake ID. You can always meet people to hangout with and just have fun with. There are other schools in New York such as New School or NYU where you can meet other people and see that they are having the same experience as the one one would have at Marymount. MMC college experience isn't going to be your typical college experience because it's in New York, but more specifically it is located in one of the richest (non-social) parts of New York. All this means is that you need to go out and find places to go, talk to people.... be social. Any atmosphere is really just what YOU chose to make of it.

As for academically, Marymount really helped me find my niche. The teachers DO care and frankly if you come across a teacher you don't like, talk to the admissions/your advisor and let them know the problem... they WILL help you! The classes can be difficult, but they lay down their expectations at the very beginning of class. One thing that's really nice about the classes are how small they are; you can meet really good people and also really learn different ideas from your fellow classmates, because of the atmosphere that's set up. If I didn't want to get out of the city to dorm and be away from home, i'd stay at Marymount. I love the school a lot and I think that any new positive edition to the school will only help its never ending potentials grow!

I think Marymount is an amazing little schoolBrightPerfomance Arts
I think Marymount is an amazing little school if you are an artist of any kind! If you are not into big cities, or making new friends, then you may not like it. Students who do not enjoy MMC are students who go home every weekend and do not try to meet new people. If you are outgoing and love exploring NYC, you will love MMC. There has been a lot said on here about the overwhelming number of gay boys. It is true, and that is something you should know coming in. There are seemingly endless gays everywhere. That being said, we are a lot of fun =)
