Fashion Merchandising and Marketing

mrwyntermrwynter Registered User Posts: 16 New Member
I want to get into fashion. I am keen on merchandising, PR and marketing. My dream is to work for a designer. I am an honor student (Nat. Honor Society, well rounded, lots of volunteer and community work and have great references. My GPA is 3.4. I do not test well but hope to do ok on my SAT's in June (I am a hs junior).

My mom wants me to look at the business programs in marketing (Boston) in case I find out I am not 100% sure about fashion. We also agree I should apply to FIT and Parsons (where I know a few alumni and can secure great references).

Does it behoove me to seek out a tradition 4 year biz school and focus on great internships (or in the case of Northeastern co ops ) or should I go right to FIT or Parsons? I am 99% sure what I want to do and have felt this way for quite some time.

I am confused about FIT vs Parsons. What would be best for marketing and merchandising and the "biz" end of this industry?

I have great references at both and have talked to Scott Pobiner at Parsons for two years on email.

I am ready for a big city and hard work.
