I am a junior at MMC and this is definitely the place for me! With such a diverse and talented group of individuals you can't go wrong with this school. Financial aid and academic advisement are exceptional and are always willing to answer and help with any issues you may run into. The dance and theater programs are elite level and prepare you for the real working world. A great, well-rounded private college!

I love my program at Marymount. If you're a dance, theatre, or communication major, chances are you are going to have a good academic experience here. A lot of the teachers here are adjunct, so some of them care a lot, and some of them don't care at all. The professors here, however, are amazing. The student body is probably what would get me to transfer, though. If you're a straight white male, then chances are you will be discriminated against by other students. The college brags about diversity but in terms of financial and race diversity, I would say it's mostly middle class white people. The diversity comes in with how they are willing to talk about events, and in LGBTQ diversity. Overall it's the classes that are keeping me here, and the students that are driving me away.
I applied for the 2019-2020 school year at Marymount Manhattan College. So far my application process and acceptance to the school has been great. I've had a great experience with the admission counselors, talking with the teachers, and getting in touch with the student life. My application process and course selection weren't hard to go through. Thanks to Niche I found a school that matched what I was looking for.
If you're looking for the best New York City experience, this school is just what you need. Although it doesn't have sports programs you still can enjoy a variety of clubs and activities on and off campus. The school has a great diversity in the student community, is good to get in touch with so many nationalities, cultures, and more.
