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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
I received an excellent education from NYU. The location is amazing. Being in the center of NYC is an education in itself.
One of the best universities up there, 100% recommended!
It was an amazing experience, the teachers are very good , entertaining classes , all areas are incredible , you can study in a very comfortable way there.
I did not feel the education given to me at NYU was very good. I felt I learned very little and most of the professors were not very knowledgeable. When it came to take the license exam after I graduated, I knew nothing on the exam and had not even heard of any of it. I had to study and teach myself in order to pass the exam. I think its unacceptable that after 3 years of graduate school and around $50,000 in loans, I had not heard of anything on the license exam and none of our professors had even tried to prepare us for the exam. Going to NYU was NOT worth it in my opinion.
