The school is very useful for a untraditional type of education. However, the workload seems to be slightly unsubstantiated.

I was surprised on how much time and energy is spent in this program - you honestly cannot expect to have a life if you really want to excel. My biggest complaint about the school is the lack of financial help. There are very little scholarships, etc and it's an expensive area to live (and you want to live close to campus since you're in studio until you're cannot keep your eyes open). However, the school has some really great connections that make it worth attending.

This scholarship will help me go far with my graduate career in architecture. I am an international student from Mexico City, so the money really helps with the cost of living and tuition--a lot! Thank you!

New school of Architecture and Designs' graduate program of Architecture is highly positively intense . The work load is huge but It helps keep students in a rapid rhythm and always focus on their studies. The wide range of faculty's diversity brings a sense of culture in the design world. Diversity is important in every design department. The school needs to have a larger space for work and storage. The space is limited for the students to store projects. Making studio look like a disaster by the finals week.

It is a for profit education. Sometimes the education is great and sometimes it is lackluster.

This is an expensive school. It is NAB accredited, but it does not fall in any rankings. The professors are keen and intelligent. You will just come out with a financial debt that you will not be able to repay.

Talented, eclectic staff that all have their own unique style. some students may not enjoy every professor but when they find the one they do "click" with, they will grow and learn quite a bit.

This is only my first term but the problems at Newschool seem to be outweighed by the advantages that come from an excellent job placement program.

NewSchool offers an amazing studio culture, but as far as academics, it is up to you to make your tuition dollars count. Teachers are accessible, but will not hand hold. If you put in the effort you will get an unparalleled education and experience. If you are not as motivated, you will come out with a mediocre experience overall. The campus is open 24 hours and also has 24 hour security for those inevitable late nights. The campus has a print shop, (free printing is included in tuition) and a fully equipped workshop with tools, laser cutters, a 3d printer, and anything else you may need to build your models. My experience at NewSchool has been top notch. If I were applying to M.Arch programs today I would make the same choice and pick NewSchool.

I have always believed that school is what you make it. NewSchool is no different. If you put in the effort to learn, try, explore, the faculty and staff are here to help you in any and all ways (and most, if not all, have an open-door policy). With a downtown setting, and 24-hour access, the school is very aware and concerned with student safety and they bolster this with 24/7 security who monitor the school as a whole, as well as walk students (or take them in the provided golf cart) to their cars at all hours of the night. Everyone associated with NewSchool is here for the betterment of the school, the student's education, and for architecture and design as a discipline and profession.
