"This is a very good question to ask. I'm glad you took the initiative to find a place to ask it. I didn't know about these websites until after I started my MLA.  After going to school for a while, I think I would have liked to know…"

"Many of the OLDEST and BEST programs ARE state schools (I know, I went to one). I was stating that younger and starter programs have fewer alums high up in the work force and may not have the best reputation, or any…"

"The reputation of the school is important to an extent...but what some perceive as a good school can be turn off to others.  In some cases programs built their reputation in the past and are no longer as good as they once were.  This is a…"

"I understand that the description is just a selling point, Mike, but it does give an idea of their angle. The idea would be to graduate with more than just an MLA - to also have some experience working on public projects. Can you tell me about your…"

"The name can carry a lot of weight and open a lot of doors for you. Obviously, the older more established schools have LOTS of alums in positions of power that are always happy to have another alum on board, and at times seek them out. Also,…"

What's important? Choosing an MLA program

Hi, I'm new to this site. I'm a sculptor with a background interning at a design firm, and I'm preparing to apply to graduate schools for my first professional MLA.
