since I've noticed a lot of people have commented, but not joined.
I was accepted to Parsons last year, but couldn't attend because it's ridiculously expensive and even with the scholarship they were offering I couldn't afford to attend. (So, yeah, Parsons financial reject. LOL)
About 4 years before that I was also accepted to FIDM.
