4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: Since the International Business program started last year, the amount of students in my major is really small. Despite this, we have all come together and bonded over our major-specific courses. All of my professors have been genuinely interested in what we want to do and work towards making the subject material relevant. I've also earned work and internship experience that I would have never had if I had not attended this college.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: LIM College has helped me become a better, more confident person. The past two years there has allowed me access to opportunities I didn't have before. Learning from experts in the industry and getting hands-on experience makes LIM unique.

3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: I only had to transfer one credit and it was very easy. Also when it comes to adding and dropping classes my school has a deadline.

3 College Junior

Online Courses: I like online courses because the more online courses I take the more time I have for interning. But the only problem is our teachers grade very slowly and its a problem because I don't know how well I'm doing in most of my classes until the last minute.

4 College Junior

Career Services: Even after you graduate the school invites you to career events that the school hosts.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love the fact that the classes are small personalised but sometimes I wish there was a larger range of courses to take.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: We do get a lot of job opportunities at LIM. Many of my friends from other school tell me wish they chose a more specific school like LIM that could bring them closer to their career goal.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: My major is fashion merchandising and it is one of the two most common majors at my school. The other most common major is fashion marketing. Some aspects of the program that I don't like are all the CAD and photoshop courses. My school as a whole provides a lot of opportunities for us students to apply for jobs.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Having a social life at LIM college is not easy. I have made a few friends at school but most of my friends are people i have met through other friends that go to colleges near my home. Because my school is so career focused you end up feeling like you are not doing enough most of the time in comparison to other students.

5 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: All majors require three internships to be completed before graduating, which really helps to get real-world experience. I'm a fashion merchandising major, like most students here, and I've found the classes to be really interesting and insightful. It also helps to know that what you're learning is going to be useful.

Overall Experience: LIM has given me great volunteer and work experiences! I've worked at fashion week, beauty events, and even found my current job through our LIM-exclusive job database. The professors are also really awesome and helpful. They like to get to know students individually.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: LIM offers lots of opportunities with internships and part-time employment..Because we are a small school highly recognized in the fashion industry, many of friends are employed in high-end retail store or major fashion publications..The career center is constantly sending out career opportunity emails.

4 College Freshman

Academic Experience: Attending the school has broaden my opportunities in the fashion industry..I had no idea the various careers availabile

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I was a little nervous about attending school in the city..I was not accustomed to traveling on the train..The first week of orientation, the counselors dissolved all of my fears..The First Year Experience Class was so HELPFUL..The professors are true professionals in the industry and understands what it takes to make it

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: When I first chose this school I was fearful that I would want to transfer to parsons or the Fashion Institute but when I began going to school I fell in love with the campus, students, and atmosphere. I enjoyed being a part of the styling club and meeting alumni they were very helpful in reassuring my comfort level at LIM. I am both blessed to attend this school and hopeful for the future and what this school will bring me.

Overall Experience: Do not attend LIM if you want a full college experience. If you enjoy NYC nightlife, relying on annoying promoters to get you in, and hanging out with older men then this is the "college experience" for you. If you want a school that has school spirit, sports, Greek life and a huge campus don't go to this school you'll end up disappointed. I attended this school in hopes of getting the best out of the fashion world but didn't get what I expected. 30% of my freshman class transferred after their first semester here. Also credits don't transfer out! Being it's a private school a bunch of the classes are made up courses by the school that will not transfer to any other university. Most of the professors are extremely helpful but others are just here to receive a little extra income and could care less about your education and helping you succeed. LIM tries their best to make the college fun but they fail miserable. The student activity coordinators are run by 20-30 year olds that couldn't find a real job after graduating and think trips to the wax museum are what we want to do. A few girls tried to start a sorority and the dean shut us down. He told us the school wants us involved in fashion oriented clubs only and there's no time for a sorority with what our schedules are supposed to be like. We started a club called the LIM socialites, due to the fact we weren't a real sorority no one wanted to commit and the club failed after a semester. You're required three internships before you graduate but what the college fails to tell you is that you need to take 15+ credits while interning. They also try to screw you into taking less credits your freshman year and now a majority of my class is behind on credits are struggling with 19+ credits a semester to graduate on time. The financial aid office is not helpful at all. It could take you over a week to get in touch with someone. I've also heard from alumni that employers don't necessarily like LIM students. i hate LIM(:
