Major: Interior Design (This Major's Salary over time)
Marymount is one of the two schools in the DC area that have the program I want to study in. I picked Marymount because it had a lower cost and its classes were more convenient for me in terms of class availability for people who work a full-time job like me.

In my honest opinion, I believe that the quality of classes in my program are not the best, and that grading is very lenient. There a few times I knew I should have gotten a lower grade on a(n) exam/paper/class. However, I am taking it upon myself to learn a lot more on my own that what I am learning from my class lectures in such. I really want to do well after I graduate, so I'm working hard to make sure I am learning as much as I can inside and outside of the classroom.

The interior design program I am in is great. My classmates are friendly and so are the faculty. Everyone will know your name, and you will know everyone. You will definitely make great friends with your classmates and the faculty.

However, since the graduate program is small, the University will often cancel classes at the beginning of each semester because of low enrollment, and you will have to wait until the next semester or even the semester after to take a required course. A part of the problem is that many students are notorious for registering for classes at the last minute, so I guess the best advice for future and current students is to register for classes as soon as possible.

In terms of on-campus financial aid/scholarships, you are pretty much taking out loans every semester unless you pay out of pocket. I wish there were more scholarships available for interior design students, but the only thing available are a couple graduate assistant positions each school year. You can always apply for outside scholarships, but those can be hard to win since everyone is applying for them.
