This college is the best! I absolutely love it here! It's really awesome because everyone is in the industry and we are all networking with one another without even really trying. You definitely have network connections and friends for life. Since everything is music based it really helps you understand your classes and what the real world is going to be like. McNally also has a very modern campus with great tech and atmosphere.

Tuition & Financial Aid:
McNally Smith is a private school making it more expensive but yet they still have the power to help you out at times. I pay out of pocket at the moment so I have a payment plan set up through financial aide. They are right across the street from the school so if you ever have any questions you can go talk to them. The school is extremely pricey though considering we're all musicians and there is no grantee in this field.

At McNally Smith we have tons of musical programs that allow you to go in depth in the music industry. All of the teachers here are currently apart of the industry and have a ton of knowledge. You register classes online and you can always talk to your advisor about any questions you have. There is also a student careers center where you can talk to other advisors about interning and building your resume. The workload all depends on the type of classes you are taking. It can range from 2-7 hours a day depending on what you're working on and if you're in a band. Everything at McNally is music based, so everything is awesome to the fullest extent.

All of my classes have been awesome and the teachers have been very flexible.

McNally is an AMAZING school. If you want to get into the music industry this is the place to start! All of the teachers are currently in the industry and/or have many years to back them up. They are all very knowledgeable and they are here to help YOU. They want you to succeed in life and they know it can be very difficult. This school also has great courses available to you and an awesome library and resource center! Plus being in the Twin Cities gives you a little bit of an edge because the music scene here is pretty bomb.

Everything is great. Wonderful library and student center, many student created extracurriculars, nice cafe for students and store. We do not have an athletic facility but a few students have a soccer club and running club.
College Sophomore 2013-07-31T18:54:46Z
We have everything we need at McNally. Computer labs with midi keyboards, library, tutoring rooms, stages, store with drum sticks, reeds, textbooks, sheet music, and everything else you could need as a musician. We also have many recording studios and excellent teachers to help us with all of it!

Everything ranging from the facilities to the classes are great at McNally. I love the small private school vibe and love that most classes are no more than 10 people. The only hassles I have is working and being a full time student. It is exhausting and it gives me little time to practice and focus on my music. I would over sleep and forget to do assignments because I worked late the night before. If you are a working student and trying to take 8 classes in one semester, good luck! Its very hard and exhausting.

The best thing about going to a private music school is that everyone is a musician. We are all there for the same reason, to create music. We are all of different ethnicities, economic structures, political views, and sexualities. It makes it more comfortable to be yourself because there is no one to impress or groups to fit into. I personally think THAT is the true college experience.
College Sophomore 2013-07-31T18:34:03Z
Since McNally is a music college, we have a few more amenities that other schools may not. We have a campus library, computer labs with midi keyboards, store with textbooks and instrumental needs such as reeds, drum sticks, and others. We have a cafe with a stage to we have have live music. The one thing that sets us apart from any other school is the recording studios. We get the chance to use professional equipment. Not many schools get this opportunity. And we have actual recording artists like Dessa and Jeremy Messersmith that come and teach classes and use the studios. Its a great facility!

I love being a vocal performance major. However, in order to be taken seriously you have to become active in ensembles or independent projects.
College Junior 2013-07-09T19:10:46Z
Transferring credits has been easy, however, the school is over priced.
College Junior 2013-07-09T19:09:50Z
I would rate the student body at McNally Smith very highly.

I have high hopes for the future in the music career. McNally Smith is teaching me so much and I already feel as though I can get a job in my field. I have not been in the career center much because the classes keep me busy but I have had a lot of opportunities to get a music related job.
College Senior 2013-03-02T18:44:10Z
So many resources that you can access at anytime you need them
College Junior 2013-02-25T17:47:39Z
I really like my class schedule. It gives me the opportunity to work a part-time student job and still have time to get my practicing and homework done. I really like the curriculum as well.

Tuition & Financial Aid:
The tuition is very high and there is very little opportunities for scholarships which is unfortunate for people like me who need financial aid to keep attending. However, so far McNally has been worth the money.
College Junior 2013-01-16T22:42:07Z
McNally Smith is a Music School! The atmosphere is Awesome!! A lot of the student are there to get a degree and network with other musicians. Networking is highly recommended by the faculty. I recommend that you network with the faculty! Everyone there has different styles and personalities but we all have one thing in common.. the love of music. That alone will make you comfortable with anyone who is in the building.
College Junior 2013-01-16T22:35:38Z
Our school takes pride in helping the students! We have a wonderful student affairs office/team that can help you with plenty of different things! They are always ready and willing to help! They remind us to come see them at anytime. There is also a job/volunteer/internship board in the hall that is always up to date with posting for jobs, volunteer work and internships that are available and applicable to our field of study.
College Junior 2013-01-14T18:01:10Z
The library has an impressive collection of records, DVDs, and books all relating to music. They also have a plentiful amount of laptops that can be checked out individually by all students.
College Junior 2012-12-12T16:00:58Z
There is always something going on. I find it very rare that I'm bored there because there is always something to do or see.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
