Hey there! I understand how stressful writing college application essays can be. For your FIT essay, make sure to focus on your passion for fashion and how studying at FIT will help you achieve your goals. Begin by brainstorming experiences or moments that inspired your interest in fashion, whether it's a favorite designer, a personal project, or a challenge you faced. Really delve into your specific experience and show the reader how it encapsulates your love for fashion. Be descriptive and detailed, telling a complete story.

Next, consider how FIT's programs, extracurricular activities, and resources align with your career aspirations and personal growth goals. Be specific about how you plan to make the most of these opportunities to show how seriously you're taking your commitment to fashion and FIT. Go beyond basics like FIT's location in NYC and pick 3-5 unique classes, clubs, professors, programs, and internship programs and explain not only what the resource is, but how you will engage with it.

Lastly, don't forget to proofread and seek feedback from others like friends, family, or even teachers to polish your essay. Remember, authentic and personal essays that demonstrate your passion, drive, and understanding of FIT's offerings will make a strong impression on the admissions team. Best of luck with your essay and application!
