You are creative and unique. You want to shout from the rooftops who you are and what you believe. You want to express yourself.

We’re here to listen, closely. 

We want to know about you: the real you. Not just the tests you took or the grades you got. Tell us a story—the story of YOU.

Zero in on a moment in your life that shows how you’ve changed or lets you reflect. Tell us what excites you, what you’ve thought deeply about, what you strive for. Most of all, focus on YOU—how you felt, what you experienced, why you were transformed. It’s you we’re interested in. It’s your story we’re excited to hear.

At MMC, you are not a set of academic credentials. You are a whole person, and you deserve to be seen and known.


Our goal is to ensure access and equity in our admission process by eliminating obstacles you may face when completing the application process. To this end, MMC is test-optional for Fall 2023 domestic applicants and will no longer require an application fee.

Note, this policy does not affect academic scholarship offerings. If you have any questions, please contact the Office of Admission.

Reposted from @mmc_ic L’shana tova! Happy Rosh Hashanah September 25th - 27th marks Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year. Observance began at sundown on September 25th. The two-day holiday is considered a time to reflect and repent in anticipation of the coming year. Rosh Hashanah also marks the beginning of the Jewish High Holy Days. Wishing all those observing, including our friends from @hillelmmc and @hunterhillel, a good year.

💜Hello #Classof2026! We asked first-years like @victorpascucci4 what they’re looking forward to as they start MMC. Check the link in our bio for the full story! Name: Victor Pascucci (he/they) Hometown: I’m from Chicago but was raised in San Antonio. 🥰What excites you most about starting MMC? A: I want to be a professional actor, go on to do TV and film, and most importantly, be on stage. So I’m most excited about the theatre program because it lets me do what I love more than anything in my favorite city on Earth. 🤗Can you share one interesting/weird/funny fact about yourself? A: One fun fact about me is that I got to host my own musical theatre concert before coming to college. I did it as my senior project in high school—they let us take time off from our academic courses to pursue a passion project. It took a lot of work to write a show, book the venue (I used my old middle school), and manage ticket sales. But the weeks of planning and rehearsing paid off, and the final product was everything I could ask for. I’d never felt prouder and happier in my entire life. It forced me to be very vulnerable onstage, and I’ll forever be grateful for the experience. 🧐What’s the best piece of advice you’ve heard about starting college? To simply enjoy it because you’re only young once. #nyccollege #Griffins #MMCProud

💜Hello #Classof2026! We asked first-years like @karakokolakis what they’re looking forward to as they start MMC. Check the link in our bio for the full story! Name: Kara Kokolakis (she/her) Hometown: Long Island, New York 🥰What excites you most about starting MMC? Getting to be a part of the incredibly welcoming community! 🥴What are you the most nervous about? I’m mostly nervous about living in a new area and having to make that adjustment. 😎What’re your career ambitions? I’d love to teach theatre to aspiring performers! 🤗Can you share one interesting/weird/funny fact about yourself? I did Greek dance for most of my life. Greek dance includes a variety of different dances, with each island of Greece having its own traditional one. Everyone joins together in a group to perform them. That’s what makes them so special—everyone is together in that moment, and you find family in what may be just a group of strangers because you all share the same love and soul. 🧐What’s the best piece of advice you’ve heard about starting college? That all the other first-year students are also in a new place, so you have a lot of people to work with and find your way with! #nyccollege #Griffins #MMCProud

💜Hello #Classof2026! We asked first-years like @nisamonae what they’re looking forward to as they start MMC. Check the link in our bio for the full story! Name: Nisa Tatum (she/they) Hometown: Baltimore, but my dad was in the military until I was 10, so I’ve lived in plenty of other places, including Hawaii and North Carolina. 🥰What excites you most about starting MMC? A: The new environment and being able to dance in the city! 😎What are your career ambitions? A: When I first started dancing, my family was low-income compared to my classmates. I was jealous of kids who’d grown up going to dance conventions because my family couldn’t afford it until I was about nine. I don’t want kids to feel like they have to pay thousands of dollars to train, so my goal is to start a dance convention organization for families like mine. I would love to also dance on Broadway, for an NBA team, or on a cruise! I want to be able to share my art with others. 🤗Can you share an interesting/weird/fun fact about yourself? A: My fun fact is I’ve seen every episode of Criminal Minds five times! I honestly could quote every episode. 🧐What’s the best piece of advice you’ve heard about starting college? A: To get a mattress topper. I love sleeping so much! #Nyccollege #Griffins #MMCProud

Hello #Classof2026! We asked first-years like @annambelden what they’re looking forward to as they start MMC. Check the link in our bio to read the full story! Name: Anna Belden (she/her) Hometown: Saratoga, New York 🥰What excites you most about starting MMC? A: I plan to work as an actor, director, producer, and writer in theatre, film, and television. I’m excited to spend my time learning about these incredible subjects with creative people who share the same passion for them. 🥴What are you most nervous about? A: I’m nervous about living in New York City, but I’m even more excited about all it has to offer! 🤗Can you share one interesting/weird/funny fact about yourself? A: I write (nearly) everything in cursive! I broke my hand in gym class when I was 14, and it became easier to write exclusively in cursive with a cast on. I’ve stuck with it ever since. 🧐What’s the best piece of advice you’ve heard about starting college? A: To get to know as many fellow students as possible!

I’m kind of directionally challenged! ✨Tell us about your career ambitions! A: I plan on working in the nonprofit/social justice sector. My ultimate goal is to use my voice to inspire change and aid disadvantaged communities. ✨Can you share one interesting/weird/funny fact about yourself? A: An interesting fact about me is I took my first ever ballet class four years ago, and now I’m majoring in it! ✨What’s the best piece of advice you’ve heard about starting college?
