i think a better question to ask would be how many students here have actually been rejected, because I could bet that they accept 100 percent of the people who apply, and actually finish the application process.

that school is so bootleg that they accept everyone and anyone who completes the whole interview portfolio process, and that's that you don't even need to have a good portfolio, grades, etc.

FIDM doesn't offer B.A. degrees, only A.A. degree. The only b.A. they offer is for some some sort of Business major. Make sure you check everything out before you decide to go there!

Im in the process of applying ( my interview via phone is this week) and I'm planning on majoring in Merchandise Marketing, anyone have any advice, stories, etc? I know that math is a big part of the curriculum but is it incredibly difficult?

^No, it's not because the professors are really good at explaining things to you and some of the professors have take home exams which helps. Not to say that I got a great grade in any of the math clases but Im terrible at Math so its a miracle I even passed.

And if anyone wants any info about FIDM, do ask someone who has actually attended and graduated from there instead of people just running their mouths with hearsay

barbiedoitbetter : I got a friend, French, who's got accepted at FIDM for next fall. This year she's in high school in California so maybe it was a good point for her. But I don't think because you're foreign it will be against your acceptance.

I don't know. I didnt see her. But i'm not sure she has to send a project because she applied to Merchandise product development. I'm sorry I can't say more, but don't worry do your best and you'll got all your chances !
