Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2010

Many graduate programs are unnecessary. Students should really research degree programs to ensure its a correct fit prior to making such a huge financial commitment.

Graduation Year: 2013

Gave me some opportunities I wouldn't have had any where else. The disorganization of the program was an issue

Degree: Journalism
Graduation Year: 2013

The journalism program is excellent, and I benefited from being required to double major. I met some of my closest friends at NYU, and I overall enjoyed my time there. If cost weren't an issue, I would make the choice to go to NYU again. But my student loan burden is not small, and I'm lucky compared to a lot of my classmates. I can't honestly advise a prospective student that NYU is worth the money. But then again, I'm torn on whether any upper education is worth this money, so who am I to say.

Degree: East Asian Studies
Graduation Year: 2008

NYU's Chinese language program was incredible, so I was completely satisfied with the quality of my education. However, had I been in a different program, I may not have felt the same, as the students in largest majors did not seem to be intellectually sophisticated or intelligent.

Degree: Film/Cinema/Video Studies
Graduation Year: 2013

I went to Tisch and found it to be a very hands-off approach to teaching. Sort of like, here's the equipment, figure it out. Also very directing-focused in the film program. So if you have a lot of previous experience and want to direct, Kanbar is definitely for you, otherwise consider your options.

Degree: Social Studies Teacher Education
Graduation Year: 2015

NYU is a great school with an amazing academic program. However, they are not very accommodating to diverse students. As an orthodox Jewish I needed to take time off for religious holidays which my professors were not helpful with. The school also required me to take a class on Friday evenings regardless of the Jewish sabbath and though I could not attend the actual class I was still responsible to hand in all the work on time. They would not allow me to take a similar class on a different dayof the week

Graduation Year: 2014

My history of art and archaeology program was fantastic and supportive. The university is mismanaged, however.

Degree: Performing Arts
Graduation Year: 2016

NYU Tisch Acting Department is a great place to be. There is so much to learn and you learn from the best. Tisch has the ability to accept many applicants because the program is so large which is what causes some problems and flaws because there are so many people. You have to really fight for the attention in certain studios because there are large grades. Other than that, you do have the chance to learn different techniques and methods in your later years. One large and cumbersome issue is that there are so many extraneous requirements that are necessary to get your degree, but you just have to deal with that.

Degree: Fine Arts and Art Studies, Other
Graduation Year: 2014

NYU is a very controversial school. As a student at NYU you have access to everything, but at the expense of many. I went to a community college for two years before attending NYU, and would have never been able to afford it without these first two years, which allowed me to save money, and also brought me a great scholarship. NYU is a behemoth. Its degree will give you stature. However, please do not attend if the end result is 10,000's of dollars in debt. No degree is worth it in this case.
