Very small and intimate school. Everyone I met there was really helpful with the admissions process. Portfolio review was very insightful!

MIAD is a great small community, and while there is not much overlap between majors, over the course of your time here you will become very close with the people in your major. The professors are largely working professionals and thus have relevant professional knowledge and wisdom to share. As with any discipline, if you want to succeed here, you have to really want it and put forth your best effort.
