"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."

"NYU is a great place to learn Orthodontics. You have have a ton of patients and you are able to see a variety of cases because of it. In addition, they accept Medicaid cases which is great to see. The faculty consist of private practice and academia which is great."

"The SCA department at NYU is great. The professors are amazing and are usually very interested in making sure that their students are receiving quality instruction. This department however, is very small which I was able to work to my advantage because it allowed for me to make more connections to both students and faculty."

Cybersecurity Masters Student - 6/24/2016
Degree: Cybersecurity
Graduation Year: 2016
"This school has a large number of cyber security courses. More than most other programs I researched before selecting a graduate school. There are also a huge number of elective courses covering many topics in computer science such as, big data, data analysis, security, mobile development, software engineering, and others. The courses are often taught by industry leaders or research professors, which gives students the ability to easily find research, internship, and job opportunities. Overall the schools educational value is very high, but the school is also quite expensive."

"New York University was not a friendly place to be for students who were not affluent. Financial aid was severely limited, and it was easy to feel like an outsider as I had to work multiple jobs to keep myself enrolled and fed. This meant I did not get to experience college life or really even get to engage with my studies because I was just trying to make enough to get something to eat. As a result, I left feeling little to no connection with NYU, questioning whether I had even learned anything, and dealing with a large debt for all of my efforts. I believe the university needs to do a lot more to support its lower middle-class and working class students financially and emotionally if it wants to have socio-economic diversity on its campus."

"If you're an extrovert and love the city you will have fun. As a shy person, I didn't love it but fortunately my major was small enough for me to make friends. I am not the type to go for a themed-floor but I was assigned one in my freshman year dorm (second semester, first I was elsewhere and it was awful) and the themed-floor was much more friendly and less intimidating."

"I love NYU but it is prohibitively expensive. Without a scholarship I never could've attended there and even with it I had to graduate a year early. 10 years later and I'm still paying off my loans. While the experience was phenomenal I'm not sure it was worth the cost."
