I don't live too far from MM and I would encourage you to visit and rethink your plans! When it rains it floods everything as it is in a valley in West Virginia! There is not much to do in the ways of off campus activities either. The horses are donated because most of them the owners can't sell so they give them to the school as a tax write off. I have heard multiple horror stories of injuries to students as well as the horses. The Dorms/student living quarters aren't the greatest either. A few steps above camping in my opinion!
Honestly, rethink your plans and visit the school (Especially during a rainy time of year)and see if that is where you want all your money to go. There are other schools around like Ohio State ATI or the University of Findley which offer a wider array of courses and better living conditions as well. These schools have a great transfer program so you can transfer credit hours too!

Trained
I've been looking into it as well. I particular like their training styles, and their prices are fitting. I'm going for reining cowhorse and possibly some jumping courses. I have in fact seen the campus and I find it perfect. I can't wait until I get to apply....little bit too young at the moment, though :)

I as well would like to be a trainer, give lessons, raise up my colts and compete. Its a definate busy schedule, but I'll attempt anything at this point. I alos got the inspiration for buying and turning horses from a friend of mine who does so, and she's been succesful. I might look into that as well, but I'd have a hard time selling the horses after training them :(

Meredith Manor facts: Been there, done that for 5 months, got straight A's, BIGGEST WASTE OF MONEY EVER...They have "gotcha" clauses in the contract to get more money out of you if you withdraw at any time sooner than your full program sign up. They feed seed corn (ask your vet what he thinks about that insanity, they do it because it is cheap), house students in converted steel, ocean shipping crates, 3 ratty old school buses where you have to bend down to walk around in, and the deluxe "converted" barn stalls where the gap under the doorways are large enough for rats, snakes, bugs of all kinds, etc. One bathroom had so much black mold on it that they closed it down...only after students complained REPEATEDLY and finally threatened to call the health department...Lot's of drinking and pot, no dorm supervision to speak of. Read the posts of others who have gone there over the years...I know of top young western riders who have taken national titles who got way messed up there both on technique and their backs... If this sounds too negative, just go see for yourself: Questions to ask: What do you feed the horses? What is your financial policy if you withdraw mid-program? Etc. Get other good questions to ask from people who've been there. Once you see the place you'll say NO WAY!!!
