If you have an instrument you will get inAug 14 2011Music - Performance
If you have an instrument you will get in. I thought it'd be more competitive until I heard what the competition was. All you'll have to do is record yourself on a cd that I doubt gets heard, have your money lined up, and wait for the mail to come in with the acceptance letter.
I submitted a cassette tape (old school!) according toJul 27 2010Music - Performance
I submitted a cassette tape (old school!) according to some requirements they sent me, and was accepted. The word was that any female guitarist was accepted, so they could keep the numbers up (I think there were fewer than 10 women out of 600 guitarists when I was there, and far fewer at graduation). I never knew if that was true. If so, I didn't care, as there have been plenty of times in my life when being female worked against me - so a rare break seems like a small offset to that. I just tried my best once there to earn the right to be there by working as hard as I could at being a better guitarist. I don't know if there if anything specific needed to get in, other than money. ;)
ACT: 27 Female
Just applied and paidJul 03 2010Music - Composition/Theory
Just applied and paid. To get in have money. You could probably get in with a fake diploma.
SAT: 1400 Female
It might be possible to enter the gtr programNov 03 2009Music - Performance
It might be possible to enter the gtr program without actually having ever played the guitar before making your demo tape. This holds true for all programs.
I’m a current student at MI-MBPFeb 20 2009Other
I’m a current student at MI-MBP. I have about a month left. I have some advice for those considering MI based on my experiences.

I’m a good student. I come to class, do well on tests and homework, but be forewarned that having a certificate from a trade school like MI will not very likely get you far. I have nothing against MI-the teachers are wonderful and great people, but if you’re looking for respect, a real college experience, and a shot of making a good living then you might want to consider getting a 4 year degree from a real college. It’s too hard to land a job in the music industry, the pay can be horrible, and it’s a very unstable industry. Come to MI if you want, but do consider attending a university after your tenure.

I was enthusiastic about MI when I first enrolled, but after being drilled again and again with nothing but music business related material it got tiring after awhile. Having a well rounded education is so important and you won’t get that at MI. Walking through a big, beautiful university campus is so much more inspiring than walking down the shit hole that is Hollywood Blvd to enter into the main MI building or the MBP building.

I would suggest to someone to go to a 4 year university and major in something that will actually earn you money-like Business/Marketing or anything related like Finance, Accounting, Law, etc.
