I heard the dropout thing is true. I have a friend who goes to Parsons and says the graduating class for fashion design is waaaay smaller then the intended class in the beginning/

But there's many reasons why people drop out, not just because it's "too hard".

86% of freshman return. I think the graduating fashion class decreases by about half from sophomore year, though.
But of course there are other reasons people leave, I'm sure... financial stuff, people decide they want to study something besides design, whatever.

The parson aas fast track program is only one year if you already have a bachelor's but I understand what you are saying...it will prbably be really demanding to condense what is normally 2 years in to only one year. I didnt think about that lol.Thanks

Is anyone here part of the Design and Management program? I'm just wondering what people within it, or I guess people outside of it think about it and in terms of it's usefulness. Is it worth the amount charged and how are the prospects? I guess it's a lot different than the design program since it's a BBA.

^^ Hell no!! The campus is in the middle of the city and you have options on transportaiton that run 24/7. You don't want a car in NYC, trust me. Put the money for the car towards your tuition. NYC is a walking city.

directly from high school, do people apply for AAS at parsons for fashion design before the BFA?
If it doesn't effect me much, i really would prefer not taking AAS, extra 2 yrs is gonna make the money load even higher.
So did everyone just go right to BFA? is that is even possible?

For those who attended/attending parsons what would you suggest? Go straight for the BFA? (I'm assuming BFA is lot harder to get in than AAS)

There's tuition and then board, and then you have the tri-weekly visits to Utrecht, and then muslin and textbooks (which can get really expensive). Think more around the ball park of 60k a year, at minimum.
