The Fashion Institute of Technology is a fantastic school to attend! The admission into the school is getting a bit harder, however it is very competitive. Determination, creativity and academics is extremely important. Take advantage of the time that you are at FIT because you learn a wealth of knowledge. Your classmates and the professors, are your connections to making it in the fashion industry.

I love FIT! It isn't your typical college experience, but if you love fashion and the industry then I couldn't imagine a better place to be. All of the teachers have been or are currently working in the industry so they are extremely knowledgeable. There are a lot of group projects which may be difficult, but they are very "real world" oriented and I have already learned a lot. FIT is constantly keeping me inspired not only because it is in NYC, but because the student body is so diverse. The administration can be disorganized at times and you don't get the typical social experiences that other campuses provide, but these definitely aren't big losses because you have the city as your playground.

This is NOT the school to go to for "frat parties" or "baseball boys". Apartments are really small and can hardly fit a lot of people for a party never mind the fact that people don't even really get apartments until junior year. Almost every girl goes clubbing out in the city. If you go with a Promotor you literally don't pay for anything (including dinner, drinks, &admission) so it's really convenient if you're a broke college student!
