New York University Reviews - Bachelor's in PsychologySee reviews of all programs at New York University
This school is essentially what you make of it. If you want to be isolated and keep to yourself while you pursue this degree, you can definitely do so. If you want to join groups, be a part of the community, network yourself among hundreds of peers and professionals, you can definitely do so. I recommend the latter. This school provides unlimited opportunities and resources but you need to pursue them yourself. Also, if you are interested in applied psychology (clinical work, counseling) I would recommend looking into Steinhardt's applied psychology program, the CAS psychology program is much more geared towards the science aspect of the field.
NYU was a great school. Living in the city was a once in a lifetime experience. The education you get from the city itself is once in a lifetime. The professors were top notch in their field and had a lot to share. I also had amazing clinical experiences in the city which I know helped me when applying to grad school. The cost is very high, and financial aid is pretty poor, just not a priority. However, I know that it had an immeasurable impact on my education and future success. It's not for everyone, you really have to figure out how to make it on your own, but it is a great school
I had a wonderful experience at NYU. The University's location gives truly unparalleled access to internship and networking opportunities, and the school makes it easy to take advantage of everything the city has to offer. The University also has some of the best professors in the world, and continues to attract more extremely qualified educators. It was easy, as a student, to get involved with research, and the professors were readily available to offer career advice. I did not find the University's career services to be particularly useful, but my professors were immensely helpful to me as I tried to figure out my career goals.
NYU as an entity is a humming, vibrant body of talent and intellectualism and a welcoming place for students from all over the world. Academically, I found my courses to be both challenging and satisfying, and enjoyed the range of classes I was able to take within my area of study, particularly the electives available in my junior and senior years as my interests expanded. Student services such as the accessibility of financial aid as well as the information made available to students concerning topics like loans and navigating the process of attending college altogether (for first-generation students like myself) could use a little improvement and empathy. Overall, however, I enjoyed my time at NYU and my experiences in New York City immensely.
My classes and teachers were wonderful. All my professors were very intelligent and fair, expectations were neither too high nor too low. There were a variety of interesting course topics. However, as a transfer student from out of state, I felt very isolated socially. Also, I think the university is overpriced.
