living in Manhattan, lots of opportunities for internships, unparalleled experience, diversity, interesting people,

“Undergrad that absolutely loved his experience”
July 2015FORMER STUDENT
Uppers

Diverse course offerings and perspectives of classmates and professors, ideal (IMO) environment for personal growth. Not as pretentious as most leading universities

Downers

Easy to lose focus, especially when you lack the sense of community that a small college offers; take the initiative and you will find support.

Comments

If you can't live in NYC, it may be difficult to take enjoy this school. But if you can, your opportunities are endless.

Would You Recommend

Yes

“Love this school”
May 2015CURRENT STUDENT

The city, the energy, the independence of its students, the opportunities and resource and access that this city affords

can be very busy and definitely opportunities for FOMO. Hard to find community for some.

Comments

Definitely only a good fit for some people. Really think about whether you want the city. It's a huge factor in your experience

Would You Recommend

Yes
