FIDM


Friday was a very memorable day

As obvious, I was accepted into the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising (FIDM) to pursue my passion in the Beauty Industry. I will be potentially majoring in Beauty Industry Merchandising and Marketing to launch my career in the business behind the unglamorous side of the Beauty Industry. I applied last week after months of contemplating! I didn't know I would be accepted this fast. lol. I sat in a Community College for the past year and a half and realized that majoring in Communications/Public Relations is something I aspire to finish but I wanted to spice things up and branch into something that is more specific in that field. 

People, if you have a passion and a dream and you have the drive, motivation and mind set, Don't let anything stop you from going out to get it. It's a rough world out there, be COMPETITIVE! Don't be afraid of changes, changes are good. If you are unhappy, FIX IT. I'm beginning to make slow and dramatic changes in my life and the most important thing about making them is to PLAN. Don't do things out of impulse, and don't plan things for today, plan for tomorrow and the future. 

FIDM

Sadly, I will be going to the campus in L.A. I say sadly because it's not my favorite city. It's in the heart of Downtown Los Angeles and traffic is ridiculous. lol...But despite of that I'm excited!
If you are looking into getting accepted into FIDM, make sure it is what you really want! It's an expensive school to go to. If you "think" it is what you want, DON'T GO, and if you "know" it is what you have a passion for, GO! 

Basically, you have to do an entrance project,  write an admissions essay, and have 3 professional references. They are not hard to do if you are creative and pour your heart and soul into the project. It's what they base you on, besides grades and G.P.A.

  13. congrats on being accepted! I agree with going to an expensive school and not doing something without a plan for the future, for a tomorrow... sometimes, it's good to have a back up plan too.

  16. Hey girl, I had a real quick question for you. I saw your blog post about FIDM, and I've been a long-time lurker of the school, whatever that means. But I haven't ever met anyone with any personal experience. I was going to e-mail you for a more direct response, but you said "no personal e-mails," so I wasn't totally sure what that included.

    Anyways! Sorry for dragging this on and getting off topic. Let me get to my point. (: What was the admissions process like? Did you receive your associate's from the school you were at before? I would be most likely pursuing a degree in Merchandise Marketing or Visual Communications.

    Thanks for checking this message. If you have any sort of pointers or answers, I would really appreciate it, but I understand if you've got a lot of additional messages to sift through first. And it would be preferable if you could e-mail me back at lbaucum@gmail.com, but isn't necessary. I'm just really bad at checking this stuff.

    And CONGRATS!

    xoxo

  20. I'm 100% sure you will make it in the fashion world (look how amazing your Youtube channel is doing), and I applaud you! Just beware that FIDM is a for-profit University, and for-profits are under fire right now for student loan scamming:

    Just be careful!

  35. Hurrayy!! Do any of the courses you took at the community college get transferred so you wouldn't have to take as many at FIDM?

    ReplyDelete
  36. hi,I have question, i really like your youtube channels, and I saw the youtube video about how you were accepted to FIDM, i think you should do a video or blog post about how you were accepted and the whole process of getting accepted there, i read on your blog that you weren't happy about your major in your communitu college, and yeah like did all your classes transfer there?! you should do a blog post or youtube video on your process of getting accepted and what you have to do in like transfering to new school
