“NYU”
September 2015FORMER STUDENT
Uppers

Amazing learning opportunities - professors are some of the best in the world and are generally very kind. Amenities and benefits are astounding as well - there are so many things to take advantage of in the way of career help/mental health/overall fun/free stuff that it's nearly impossible to list it all.

Downers

The price of attending this university has gotten to be nearly laughable. As much as I loved it here, do not come here if you are paying more than what you'd pay at a state school. The name gives you a leg up on employment opportunities, but not enough to offset the enormous financial burden accrued by your loans.

Comments

Consider your options carefully, as well as what you'd like to study. NYU is truly a great place, but at a great price. Not the most diverse school either - a lot of really unique people, but overall pretty white and VERY rich. Difficult for someone who is not used to that background.

Would You Recommend

Yes

“New York University”
September 2015CURRENT STUDENT
Uppers

The place has a vibrant culture and it nurtres the talent in you. There are so many things thatr you can take part in at any given time to expand yourself.

Downers

The fees and livining expenses are a bit high. Also, there is no nyu campus as such so you miss out that true college feel.

Comments

Try to apply early and land a scholarship. Also you can try to get in touch with professors to get TA/RA.

Would You Recommend

Yes
