A very good school that prepares its students for life after graduation. Career services helped me find a job before I even graduated, and they continue to give me guidance and advice to this day. Students have the option to focus on aspects of graphic design that suit them the most (photography, video, animation, print design, etc). Although the workload is intense, it prepared me for what to expect in a real work environment. Two big downsides include housing and financial aid. The school recommends second-year students not to have jobs, as your second year is very demanding and requires nearly all of your time, even outside of class. But since there is no on-campus living, students have to somehow manage to pay rent while working little to no hours. As for financial aid, the person who has worked in the FA department for years could really care less about the students financial problems, and treats students and their questions like a nuisance.

The Modern College of Design is a fantastic school if your goal is to become a successful graphic designer. They genuinely care about their students and the staff is so passionate about what they do. A huge thing they focus on is preparing you to work in the real world at either an agency or in a corporate setting or freelance. After I graduated there, I am happy to say I was well-prepared. This is a school I highly recommend for students who want to work in the creative industry.
I loved it! The staff we're all very helpful and super friendly. The students were friendly too. It's a positive environment to be in.
