    This school is pretty easy to get into, so don't worry about that. If you're majoring in something other than fashion you might want to think again.. especially if you're doing regular marketing/advertising. You might like other schools better. There's no SAT requirement so you will spend the next four years rolling your eyes at everything anyone says ever if you got above a 2000 on your SAT.

    I can only speak for the Illustration program, but my tip is really, just don't waste your money here. If you are generally unmotivated, hate any form of constructive criticism, and like an excessively laid-back, non-competitive atmosphere, then I guess FIT is your place. Very few of the professors are any good, and the ones who are are tired of having to deal with the terrible bureaucracy. The school knows that the only reason Illustration students come here is because it's the cheapest Illustration program in the state, and they don't feel the need to improve any aspect of it. If you have any ambition or drive, don't come here; it is frustrating, uninspiring, and disorganized.

    Depending on your major, get ready for a ton of work!! Be ready to be self-sufficient and make your own schedules and read your DARS report. Also be ready to run around to every different building and this floor and that room and this person to literally answer a basic question. If you are lucky you will find someone amazing to help you plan your college schedule and will jump through hoops to get it done. A lot of the personnel don't want to do anything extra or lift a finger to help anyone.

    FIT is a selective school. You may be artistic/fashionable, but it's important to keep your GPA up, your grades have a huge impact on your chances of being admitted.
