hi, i have a question for all those who have attended FIT or are attending FIT, please reply asap. for the fashion design home test and portfolio submission, how long a time period does FIT give the applicant to submit both things, from the time FIT contacts you with the paperwork (meaning, the home test arrives in the mail)? generally when does the paperwork arrive (month?), the application is for fall, so the initial application will be submitted by january 1rst. i called the admissions office and the lady was not helpful at all, she would not give me any estimates for anything. i'm going away for a month in february/march and am concerned i won't be home when they send the home test and will miss out. i know i am supposed to hear about admission by april, so i need some sort of timeline. thanks to anyone who can help!

hi

I'm actually attending esmod and the studio berçot, but I don't know wich one I want to get in yet for september 2006. For both of them you have some question to answer and then they'll give you your answer.
For ESMOD as you're not french you can take your class in english specialy for the "foreign" student.

Esmof Is a good school, but the studio berçot too but they look different lol I had my two appointement to the studio berçot and esmod.

Buut I stil prefer the studio berçot Im not really feeling EsMOD this is very 2 different school.

If you want to know more about them ask me.

ciao

no, i didnt go to LFI meg, never heard of this place either, sorry

on the Esmod VS Studio Bercot i think SB was supposed to be more 'respected' but apparently ESMOD has changed for the best and it is quite a good refference if one plans to work in France..

Matthew, you absolutely need to travel to Paris and 'feel' the mood at both those (and more) schools..
its practically impossible to decide where to study without visiting the actual establishements

I'm currently getting my B.A. in English at a fairly good public university in the U.S. but am looking into doing the M.A. program in fashion journalism at CSM. Is it going to be really competitive to get in since I don't have any fashion background?

Thanks for all help!

I think your background in english is the most appropriate. You won't be doing much designing in a writing program.

Advice on Schools
hello! I am new to this so please bear with me.

A little background:
I am finishing up my senior year in a small town neglected from Fashion, Art, and all Creativity. I found out that i had a passion for fashion for i've always been the unique one who always stood out because i had a different kind of creativity. It is hard to pursue it in such an environment and would like to know a good way in starting my dreams.

So i have some questions about some schools and would like to know some of your opinions...whether you've attended them or not, what you've heard or experience...all would be great. so what do you think about
FIDM?
OTIS?
F.I.T?
PARSONS?
any other schools that you have in mind that are good...please let me know

Thank so much for your advice
sincerely

-Inez-marie
