Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2007
"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."

"It was a nice place to go and the classes and educational environment were wonderful but if you can't afford the absurdly high price it's not really essential to go there."

"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."

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."

"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 Production
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."

"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"
