Hi anonymous ~_~;
I apologize for answering so late. Since the summer started I’ve been so lazy ><;; Sorry sorry!! As for your questions, here are some answers
I chose FIT because (1) it was appealing financial wise- only about $3000-$4000 a year compared to other art collages that charge $18000-$50000- and (2) it’s a popular art school.
Unfortunately, FIT doesnt offer scholarships because the tuition is already very cheap. They offer loans and awards. If you are already an independent and you’re financially below the poverty line, you can get grants meaning you can go to FIT for free (although I’m not sure if you have to pay after you graduate. I still have to inquire about that)
You have to have at least an average of 3.0 or better. For more info you can check fitnyc.edu > admissions > undergaduate admissions > how to apply
Hmm what I like most about FIT? I guess the professors because they all work in the field and mostly all of them share their work experiences. Some even give us a taste of the art business ie. extremely strict deadlines, dealing with art directors, agents, etc.
What I like least? Hmm… Not really unhappy with the school. I didnt like carrying so much stuff everyday but that was my fault because I didnt get a locker! So if you’re going to FIT, DEFINITELY GET A LOCKER!!!
I can’t really comment on Campus Life because I didnt live in the dorms. I commute =/
FIT in a bad area? NOPE! It’s actually cool coz its walking distance, about 15-20 minutes away, from times square. It’s a very commercialized area so it’s always fun to walk around!
Advice and tips? Like I said above, you must get a locker! Make sure you do your homework as soon as possible because it will all pile up if you procastinate! believe me! what else… if you’re having trouble, dont be afraid to ask the staff (registrar, admissions, security, etc)! they wont bite! they’ll be nice to you if you’re nice to them. Hmm… I cant really think of more right now but I’ll post some more tips as the days go along. I hope my answers will help you somehow. I’m really sorry for the late response. Thank you for liking my blog!! And GOOD LUCK!!!
