    ask for scholarships and aid, they are fairly generous. living on campus is pretty great and there are tons of apartments nearby that are nice. it can get a bit pricey, but still cheaper than the dorms, and there are evening safety shuttles offered by mica that will take you to your door if it's close by. be prepared for a lot of work and show up to class! don't sign up for a class if you're going to slack off, that denies a class slot to someone who really needs it. you will need to be on top of registration as most classes fill up quickly! make sure you plan out your degree with an advisor so you can hit all the requirements - it's too expensive to waste time and then have to take an extra semester.

    I would suggest visiting MICA before applying, because it is such a great school that you have to experience it before you apply. I would also say that MICA is one of the very few schools where it's just as amazing as the pictures in it's catalog. It's helpful to become friends with other prospective students, whether it's on Facebook or when you visit the school.

    Be prepared to work. There's a lot of homework, but it's manageable. Just because it's an art school doesn't mean there's only art--academics are super important, too. Talk to people! Teachers, students, staff... everyone can teach you something.
