New York Institute of Technology Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (6)
I've really enjoyed my time at NYIT. Academics are certainly challenging, but rewarding, and students usually aren't excessively stressed about grades. Professors are, for the most part, incredibly knowledgeable and care about students, but there are some (particularly those teaching intro classes) who could use some improvement. The local area can be a bit expensive and far away (especially without a car). The professors are super interesting and the students are so welcoming and friendly. The campus is beautiful, but it can be a bit overwhelming.
I loved the atmosphere of New York Institute of Technology. I didn't really want to leave. However, it is possible to complete this program without a specialization. I recommend that you make sure that you specialize in something in order to be a viable candidate for career possibilities. I didn't have a specialization and it is hard for me to find work in this field now. it wasn't a waist because I can now get a doctorate degree, if I choose to. I have gotten some great administrative jobs; but that is not my dream. I really wanted to work in film and television. In 2006, the program was designed in such a way that all of the screenwriting courses were four credits and I was unable to take them because my financial aid did not cover it. However, it is a great school.
I'm not longing pursuing work from this degree, but the experience I had while attending NYIT helped me mature and figure out what I wanted from life, and now I'm a graduate student becoming a Physician Assistant.
I did not enjoy my time at this school. There was rampant cheating in every course I took. Most of the professors used powerpoints solely as their method of choice for teaching. Coursework was vastly more difficult and often was not was taught during class. Not enough courses were offered so students had to sign up for irrelevant courses and have them substituted just so they wouldn't be considered part-time and lose financial aid.
NYIT provided a great experience for me to obtain my psychology degree. I have met some great people there and have life time friendships because of that. The course work was challenging yet rewarding. I would recommend NYIT to anyone. The campus is beautiful and the school is great.
It was a program that was very competetive but I made it into medical school
