I am going to be applying in the next few days for the spring 2013 semester at FIT. Do you know the acceptance rate for international students? Also, I will be at UT Dallas for the fall 2012 semester which means I apply as a transfer student right?
You will be a transfer and can find out more about the international student acceptance rate on, fitnyc.edu.
Hi, I saw that you previously went to Teen Vogue Fashion University and I was wondering on the application where it says to attach photos, are they asking for photos of us or? Sorry I know this is a dumb question but I'm really confused.
Glad to help! For me I used my personal style (obviously) to show how I related to fashion through my attire. Though this section can be used to feature your sketches if you’re a designer, or anything relevant to expressing who you are.
hello, i visited FIT and loved it. my only worry is they said " they aren't there to teach you. there are there to make you better at it." in my case my major is fashion merchandising. is there any suggestions you would have for me that i could do to gain experience? retail is a given. would a blog help?! my grades are solid. my only worry is the essay.
Hi - For starters, FMM is all about teaching you new skills to be a Buyer/ Product Developer, you don’t come in knowing how to do a 6 month purchasing plan. To prepare yourself, I would become well versed in fashion history literature and focuse on learning as much about what you’d like to specialize in. As for your essay, fully express why you want to be in the fashion industry, and why FIT is the best place to help you launch your career. FMM is a large major with a lot of diversity, with your solid grades, and a polished essay you’ll have great chances of receiving an acceptance packet. Best of luck!
i saw that you had a post about attending Teen Vogue's Fashion University. I was wondering how much it cost and if you have any reccomendations for the application
Wow, you are going WAY back on my archives to see I attended Teen Vogue’s Fashion U!
Cost was minimal ($200) for the knowledge and networking available from attending this once a year seminar. As for recommendations, just be yourself, if you love fashion and are a designer or have great personal style. Express what makes you unique, and why you feel that you’re going to make it in the fashion industry. Teen Vogue’s Fashion U is all about supporting young talented individuals!
