  • Degree: Occupational Therapy
"Attending New York University's Occupational Therapy program was one of the best decisions of my life. The resources NYU provides are endless. The staff is absolutely incredible. Starting from the security guards who are always there to great you with a smile, wish you, luck on your exams or just telling you to have a good day. I could go on and on about the professional staff. I have had the most amazing professors. They don't treat you like students, they treat you as future professionals, as their equal. They truly want to shape you to be the best therapist that you can possibly be. Each of our professors is passionate and amazingly educated within their specialty. On to the student body! My classmates have truly become my best friends. It is the most supportive program I have ever been in. You never have to worry about feeling alone or not having someone to lean on, no matter what someone is there. Outside of the classroom NYU provides ample opportunities to further your education and network. I have had the opportunity to participate in a workshop where I learned how to use improv to help those on the autism spectrum and sat in on a lecture about a new treatment for ADHD. I have had the opportunity to network with individuals outside of my professions through NYU's Rehab collective and NYU IPEG. Over all I can do nothing but praise this program. If you are passionate, want to learn and willing to work it is the best place for you."

"I enjoyed my graduate experience at New York University very much. In addition to the information and experience I gained in classes, the most valuable part of the program for me was the networking opportunities. I am looking forward to continuing to grow my career in preventative healthcare and research and I believe the Ergonomics and Biomechanics (ERBI) program at NYU has given me the tools necessary to do that. The program also offers a merit-based partial tuition reimbursement for United States Citizens."

"I enjoyed my time as an undergraduate at NYU College of Nursing. I feel as though the quality of instruction is high; the professors I had were excellent in their respective fields and as teachers. The fact that the university is in New York City provided me with a diverse array of healthcare clinical sites in which to learn as well as different places to explore on my days off."

"New York University. When people think of NYU they think diversity, opportunity, structure, and mostly expensive. For the past two years I have been enrolled in NYU's social work masters program. For those of you who aren't familiar with NYU, it is broken up into different schools within the school, as are many colleges. So, the school in which my courses are taken is the Silver School of Social Work. Due to the influx of students from all over the northeast students are elgibile to take social work courses at three different campuses. The campuses include the Westchester Campus, Rockland Campus, and the City Campus. This expansion makes the Silver School of Social Work very unique in comparison to other social work programs in NY. Having taken courses at the Westchester Campus I was able to build closer friendships and relationships with the professors. Since the Westchester Campus is smaller then the rest of the campuses, there are fewer professors to choose from. I found this very favorable and accommodating for my needs. Being from a smaller town I liked the idea of familiar faces. At the Westchester campus I had a total of approximately 8 professors for the total 2 year program. For individuals who liked having more of an option of professors they were able to have the option of attending the city campus. One detail about NYU and the Silver School of Social Work that I felt was biased was the political view of the professors in my particular program and the students. Throughout classes, politics was discussed frequently and it was often assumed that the individuals in the classroom all had the same perception. I found this to be unprofessional at times. Overall, I felt that the professors and staff were very accommodating in terms of scheduling, registrations, and assignments. The professors were always easy to reach and responded quickly. If you are looking for a school definitely consider applying to New York University."

"Pros: NYU Silver school has a great clinical program. Faculty are experts in their field. There are many opportunities to network and gain knowledge in this space. Cons: Affordability for the school. It is not a diverse student group. Some faculty lack the knowledge to facilitate conversations around social justice issues such as race."

  • Degree: Economics
"My education at New York University gave me more than just a Bachelor's Degree. A college degree from NYU is an education on the city of New York. With each walk to class, each ride on the subway, I learned about the diversity of culture, economic status, and opportunity that build the city of New York. Academically, NYU is rigorous and the course catalogs are endless. The core curriculum at the College of Arts and Sciences consisted of both useful practical coursework and some courses that felt disconnected and unimportant. The Economics department at NYU is well structured, and allows students to pursue electives in specific areas of interest. The main disadvantage to studying Economics at NYU is the large class size that makes developing a relationship with professors difficult at best. Overall, I would certainly recommend pursuing an Economics degree from New York University."

"I was incredibly satisfied with my experience at NYU. I grew up in New York City and always wanted to stay close to home because of the diversity, cultural institutions, and career opportunities. I think weather you are a native or looking to NYC as a great new adventure, NYU will provide you with the quality of instruction and academic resources necessary to make your experience an unforgettable one. I have kept in touch with many of my classmates and professors and actually succeeded in getting a position in my field of study. I had my choice of universities after high school, but the financial aid awarded to me by NYU was unmatched, and I honestly cannot imagine having a better experience at another school."

"My experience at NYU Law has been more challenging, and more rewarding, than I could have ever imagined. I am currently taking classes from Professor Bryan Stevenson, a brilliant lawyer whose work I deeply admire. His classes on Racial Justice and Eighth Amendment Litigation have been a highlight of my time in law school. Through NYU Law's excellent clinical opportunities, I have worked as an intern at organizations including the Legal Aid Society and the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU). I am grateful for these experiences because they helped me develop real-world skills to apply to my future career as a public interest lawyer. Finally, future students should know that NYU Law has a very helpful career advising program. The public interest career counselors were instrumental in offering guidance on summer positions and post-graduate positions."

"NYU Tandon is a very promising and vibrant school Downtown Brooklyn. This campus is experiencing a new life from the merger with NYU. The investment in science, technology and engineering programs on this campus is very promising, and any student that goes here will see their diploma rise in value as the institution reaps the benefits from NYU's dedication to STEM. Furthermore, Tandon is NYU's cheapest school for tuition, and also has had the among the best ROIs for a degree in the country for a long time. I fully recommend NYU Tandon to anyone who is interested in Engineering and Science higher education."

"NYU is a really great school with a lot of diverse students. The teachers are intelligent, experienced clinicians with vast research background who only want the best for their students. Although the education is great, NYU is very expensive and does not provide much financial aid for their graduate school students."

"This review is for the NYU stern school of business undergraduate program - as a business school, it definitely prepared me for my career in management consulting for financial services institutions. It gave me the industry-focused education needed to understand the workings of a bank, and the management experience necessary to effective work and communicate my ideas. The culture of the school is definitely unique - slightly competitive but also friendly and fun."

"Although NYU is one of the most expensive universities in the country, I am thoroughly satisfied with the eduction I received. I recognized the financial burden I would take on by attending NYU, but it is also crucial to know that you get what you pay for. I feel prepared for my career in speech language-pathology, which entails rigorous caseloads in a fast-paced work environment. I know that the work inside and outside the classroom over these past four years has prepared me for whatever I may encounter in the workplace. Also, the network of alumni in addition to NYU's career center is unprecedented and they are willing and able to assist students looking to jumpstart their careers after college."

"I am the second generation in my family to proudly attend NYU Steinhardt as a future teacher. I intend not only to address inclusivity of special education in my future classroom, I seek to improve my proficiency in culturally responsive teaching methodologies and use my experiences in Thailand to promote cultural diversity and awareness within education. NYU's duel certification coursework bridges research on cultural relevance with its successful implementation in classrooms. My professional development via courses such as Foundations of Curriculum for Diverse Learners, will play a critical role in my ability to navigate contemporary social and academic curriculum. This graduate degree allows me the opportunity to learn more about my own sociocultural biases while providing a framework that incorporates multiple paradigms. I specifically hope to focus on developing my masters research in culturally responsive behavioral systems and how they potentially link with cognitive dissonance. The supporting faculty for the program is equally as impressive and I love being at the epicenter of this diverse urban community."

"NYUs impact on my life thus far has been extraordinary: after several years out of school and unsure about what steps I might take next in my career, my masters degree at NYU helped me develop the mastery, confidence, and professional connections to apply for and receive a doctoral fellowship in my field. My classes were taught by established professors who took a genuine interest in my work and matched my own motivation with their support and encouragement. The rapport among my cohort at NYU is extraordinarily vibrant, amicable, and inspiring; it has taught me, among other things, the value of an active and constructive intellectual community in strengthening ones progress and motivation."
