College Plans

Does the thought of college or anything college related make you feel jittery, excited, nervous, happy, and scared all at the same time? Welcome to the club.

As I mentioned in my previous post, I am a senior in high school, meaning that I’ve been spending my year drinking countless cups of coffee, learning of the importance of time management, and working my butt off. I anticipated having very few homework assignments and tests, as well as having the luxury of “free time”. Boy was I wrong.

But I’m not complaining. And that’s because I have heard back from most of my colleges now. I’ve been accepted to all 8 schools I’ve heard back from, which is great! But no college acceptance was as exciting as the one I got today. And that is because I got my acceptance letter from FIT today! Talk about a dream come true! I was accepted into the fashion merchandising management program, just as I have always dreamt.ArielleMcManus2

I can’t stop thinking about how my life is really starting. Here I am, taking two amazing, engaging, and challenging courses at FIT and I’m also blogging now. Before I know it, I’ll be a full time undergraduate student at FIT too! I know FIT is the right choice for me. It is everything I could want in a college, as well as things I never would have even thought of.

In 5 years time, I see myself with a bachelor’s degree from FIT. I also see myself with a passport full of stamps, documenting all of the exotic and foreign countries I will have traveled to. Hopefully I will have had enough experience in the fashion world due to internships and jobs and whatnot, that I can get a starting position at a luxury department store, so that in 10 or 15 years I can be an assistant buyer. Years after that, I plan on being the head buyer. I really think that going to FIT will help me to make my dreams for my future come true.

If you are sure you want to go into fashion, I highly recommend you plan a visit to FIT. I have never been as certain about anything as I am certain about my decision to attend FIT.

So now I have to go get my mom to write out a check for the deposit, because I’m ready to commit! Time to go get myself a college sweater!

High school seniors and transfer students, where will you be going next fall? And to all the younger teens that read this blog, do you know where you want to go to college? Please share!

Peace, Love, FIT
