A huge waste of money.AverageBusiness - Management and Administration
A huge waste of money. The atmosphere here is dull and tense. So clicky, just like high school. RA's and housing in general is terrible and not managed. The school is also millions of dollars in debt. When the education bubble pops in a few years, Marymount will be closed. Count me on it. Don't listen to the lies, its not worth it.

Did not help me with my carer at all.AveragePsychology
Did not help me with my carer at all.
I had a 3.8 GPA and could not get into any clinical programs, other than for profit diploma mills like Argosy lol. Career center is no help and is full of alumni who just want to make the school better.

People talk about small class sizes and personalized help but its all bogus. The place is falling apart financially, academically and even structurally. Please don't go here. Go it Saint Mary's U in Maryland if youre looking for a nice small christian university.-K

Marymount's Interior Design undergrad program is honestly veAverageInterior Design
Marymount's Interior Design undergrad program is honestly very good. I have some friends who went to grad there and they said it was not worth it. If you are planning to go to grad for Interior Design go to George Washington.

I didn't get a full time job right when I graduated, but I kept working part-time at this studio that was small and awesome. By mid-summer I had a job, only because I had the exact skills that they wanted. Been working there since and I love it.

Everything else about this university sucked. People were awful,bratty, privileged idiots who couldn't get into a real university. Theres a bunch of worthless theology classes that just repeat that abortion is bad and we will all go to hell.

No social life, housing is terrible and there is mold everywhere.
If you are looking for a good undergrad program in VA go to George Mason, same price, much bigger and nicer. You might think that a small university is great and that you looked at as a individual but by sophmore year everyone knows each other and hate one another. And i mean HATE.

But if you are looking for interior design than toughing it out at Marymount is worth it.I transferred in so i was only there 2 years and that was enough. Can't imagine 4.
