Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2017

The students and the professor are great. I learned a lot and the internship opportunities are amazing. As with any college, some professors are hit and miss, but for the most part, all of my professors in the social work program were really caring and always available to us. A lot of the professors go above and beyond to make our learning experience valuable.

Degree: Theatre/Theatre Arts Management
Graduation Year: 2016

NYU is an excellent choice for risk takers, self-starters, and dreamers. Know what your passion is? There are plenty of courses to help you cultivate your craft and plenty of organizations for internships. Not sure? You'll find your niche here in no time.

Degree: Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering
Graduation Year: 2016

My review on the school: There are a lot of cliques in this schools. Basically everyone tends to hang around their own majors and not interact with the other majors. This is typical since the workload is insane and everyone just hangs around to do homework. The elevators are always broken. Prints are down every other week. Overall, the professors here are researchers. That's all. They don't know how to teach! Everything is self learning. But their research brings in grant money for the school. I would recommend doing research with a professor. They need a lot of assistants. And by that I mean slaves. My review on my major: The cliques in here are the worse because already the total major is 50 kids overall. And half of these kids are either TAs or a part of the BS/MS program. So 25 kids are TAs and grading the exams of the lesser 25.... This is a dumb idea and structure of this major because our TAs are the same age with the same experiences. There are people like me who has high school biology and a previous internship at lab before coming here. So I know a years worth of biology more than the TAs. Yet they incorrectly grade my exams and homeworks because they didn't learn the advance topics like me. And I have to go to the professor every week to get things straighten out. He tried to recruit me to be one of his slaves/ TAs, but I rather not since it's notoriously known to be overwork you and drain you of all your limited free time and happiness. OVERALL THE FINANCIAL AID HERE IS WORTH IT. So many kids here are low income and have full rides. I am not kidding. Google it and you will see that 91% of this school has financial aid despite the NYU, across the river, sucks in Financial aid. Poly/Tandon gives out financial aid like its candy!!!!! Also white people are the minority in this school. This is a dream school. I am not kidding. Google it if you don't believe me.

Degree: Economics
Graduation Year: 2014

NYU has an excellent academic program with amazing professors and curriculum. The student body is very diverse and international. The location in New York gives the opportunity for many networking opportunities and chances for internships that most students around the country do not have the chance to take part in. It can be difficult to find a social community, though, and requires a very independent personality to thrive. It is definitely not the college experience for everyone because of this.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2015

NYU was a great university that had a great number of resources. The College of Nursing specifically was a great community and the professors were very passionate, intelligent, and dedicated. At a university like this, it is important to be independent and work hard.

Degree: Philosophy
Graduation Year: 2007

New York University helped engender a passion for exploration that I continue to benefit from ten years later. I studied for a year in a foreign country, led a student organization and traveled extensively for extracurricular tournaments. NYU will leave a lasting impact on my life!

Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2016

NYU is one of the most diverse universities in America. It offers the opportunity to an education with world renowned professors, an excellent network of alumni and a chance to live, study and work in one of the most famous cities in the world. There are endless opportunities to get involved, study abroad and achieve your goals. It is incredibly academically competitive. In the undergrad Politics department, there are a number of phenomenal professors who have been deeply involved in the political community around the world. It is a difficult course of study but for anyone interested in game theory and international relations, you won't find a better program.
