    I know for a fact that I will be able to pay off my debt, since I will most likely graduate with a career in my field. Even better, it is so much cheaper to go here than it would be to go to any other school for fashion, and even some visual art schools, and the quality of education is much higher. I feel like I am getting proper and relevant training, by people who have lived and thrived in the industry. I cannot stress this more: the work is worth it. If you put a lot of effort into it, FIT will not fail you.

    Cheap even for out of state! They don't give any scholarships basically (there's only a $500 one) unless you have financial need but it's cheap regardless compared to other schools.

    You get what you pay for, at least when it comes to the Illustration (and Fine Arts and Animation, I've heard) majors. They're sparse, depressing, and receive very little attention from the rest of the school, including job opportunities, guest speakers, or funding.
