LIM college is a also good for people who are interested in being in the fashion industries when it comes to business. I've enjoyed the facilities there and how much I can spend time with all lot of people there and you can make friends there easily! You can join an internship there and you get better connections with different brand companies including, Macy's and more..
Review LIM College
LIM College has endless possibilities. I went in very nervous about being in a competitive environment but couldn't be happier about where I stand now. LIM makes you feel like family and provides many connections to jobs, internships, and activities. The professors care immensely about every students passion in the fashion profession. There are an abundance of people around all the time to help you with any questions. Another plus is the campus is of course New York City leaving the world at your finger tips. However, one downside may be there is no dinning hall. You are going to have to grocery shop or eat out all the time. Many people look down upon this. My personal experience here has been nothing but positive and I am thrilled to continue my journey here at LIM.
Do not attend LIM if you want a full college experience. If you enjoy NYC nightlife, relying on annoying promoters to get you in, and hanging out with older men then this is the "college experience" for you. If you want a school that has school spirit, sports, Greek life and a huge campus don't go to this school you'll end up disappointed. I attended this school in hopes of getting the best out of the fashion world but didn't get what I expected. 30% of my freshman class transferred after their first semester here. Also credits don't transfer out! Being it's a private school a bunch of the classes are made up courses by the school that will not transfer to any other university. Most of the professors are extremely helpful but others are just here to receive a little extra income and could care less about your education and helping you succeed. LIM tries their best to make the college fun but they fail miserable. The student activity coordinators are run by 20-30 year olds that couldn't find a real job after graduating and think trips to the wax museum are what we want to do. A few girls tried to start a sorority and the dean shut us down. He told us the school wants us involved in fashion oriented clubs only and there's no time for a sorority with what our schedules are supposed to be like. We started a club called the LIM socialites, due to the fact we weren't a real sorority no one wanted to commit and the club failed after a semester. You're required three internships before you graduate but what the college fails to tell you is that you need to take 15+ credits while interning. They also try to screw you into taking less credits your freshman year and now a majority of my class is behind on credits are struggling with 19+ credits a semester to graduate on time. The financial aid office is not helpful at all. It could take you over a week to get in touch with someone. I've also heard from alumni that employers don't necessarily like LIM students. i hate LIM(:
