    While it is a decent school, the prices are really expensive. This is not a school you should attend unless you are serious about being an art student.

    The quality of everything here is insane for the price. The faculty here are experienced artists, writers, scientists, and historians that have had a lot of good things to pull from their personal careers outside of MIAD.

    Even though this is a $32,000 school without room and board, most of MIAD's facilities are top notch. They are well maintained and abundant. MIAD allows you to use it's facilites almost all hours of the day. The computer labs are open until 11, the 3D lab is open until 11, and the scultpure lab is open until 9. The school itself stays open until midnight, and during finals it's open until 2. For the availability and use of all the facilities, if you use your time wisely, and apply yourself, then this school is well worth the money.
