I'm a current (international) FIT student, and well... I have to say for the price I pay, it's not very impressive. The rate that I am learning is pretty slow. Most are obvious stuff anyone could have figured it out. I was wondering if anyone here instead of going to school, got him/herself a private instructor. If so how did you find one? Google search has not been so successful. roughly I pay $1400 a month. and for that price I can get a private instructor for 7 hrs a week. Now if I manage to convince few of my friends (which will be super easy) getting them for 14 hrs a week or more wouldn't be much of a problem. This way, less time is spent learning useless stuff. and if i really need to use their facility, I can just take 1 random course at FIT , so I get access to their library and such. Then again.. lol FIT security is a joke. Despite how many they hire. I'm planning to go to CSM/antwerp in the future, but right now, I feel like I'm wasting my time at FIT. Design classes are terrible and very time consuming. Not to mention the school's mentality and philosophy toward design is outdated.
