    This is a great school and the design programs are top notch. The teachers make you over prepared for real world situations and you graduate career ready. It's a small community and everyone is very accepting. I'm very proud to go to this school.

    The most important thing to do before you apply is to attend a National Portfolio Day event (or schedule a private portfolio review with MIAD Admissions) to get advice on your artwork. If you can't do so, make sure you are only putting your best work into your portfolio instead of everything you've ever done. The more professional-looking and concise your portfolio is, the better your chances are for getting a good scholarship. This goes for any art school, not just MIAD. If you're seriously interested in coming here, tour the school and surrounding area before you enroll to make sure the program you're interested in is right for you. Some people are put off by the school's small size, limited selection of majors, lack of extracurriculars, and unified Foundations program (meaning you don't enter your major until your second year). Also, this isn't completely vital, but I would recommend taking as many AP classes as you can and/or taking classes through a community college in order to lessen your workload during the school year. If you're able to get English and biology/natural science out of the way, your schedule will have more room for electives that actually interest you. Plus, it's a lot less expensive. Trust me, it's worth it!

    The first year is going to be stressful as you attempt to figure out what exactly what you want to major in. Take it all in stride, and don't be afraid to ask questions. Dress warmly if you plan on being on the second floor especially.
