Printing is expensive, but we do get some free printing which is helpful. The computer labs are often crowded, but I don't know any students who actually rely on them. They are for emergency purposes, or for printing only. Students completely rely on their laptops around campus and in class. I have never had any issues with network capability, and the wireless is always speedy.

NYU is pretty relaxed about most things; since we don't have a campus, they have little control over drinking and party life anyway.

Those who are Greek are very into their sorority/frat lives and circles, but it's a minority of the NYU campus.

Not many students use/own cars in the city. Public transportation is the way to go, as parking spots are very scarce.
College Sophomore 2012-12-05T01:24:37Z
The professors are very approachable, and office hours are always a great resource. They really care about the students. The workload is not terribly heavy either, I supposed it depends on your major, but generally, people find a way to make it all work out.

I haven't declared a major yet, but the pre-professional advising department is wonderful. I am happy with my decision to focus on the pre-med track.
College Sophomore 2012-12-05T01:21:02Z
Currently I'm focusing on the pre-med track, looking to major in History. The options here are great, and I love all the classes I've taken so far. The requirements of the Morse Academic Plan seem to take a lot of time, but it is manageable. I hope to go onto Medical School, and my college has a great advising team for pre-professional students.

The process of getting into Gallatin was easy. You need an average GPA and an essay to transfer.

NYU is New York City. There is no real campus, so anything that is going on in NYC is going on at NYU and visa versa.

The computer labs are new and clean, but the lines for the printers are enormous.

By the time I finished the scholarships were able to supplement the majority of my education

Location and resources of new york city are unparalleled to other universities in the work. The networking one can do as an undergrad while living in nyc can prove properous for one's future.

The student center at NYU is amazing! There are so many organizations for student life, and an amazing facility to promote them. Getting involved is easy, the school finances the clubs fairly, and communication with clubs has never been a problem. It is also very easy to "go green" or find an athletic hobby at NYU. As far as I know, there's something for everybody here at NYU: It's student life is driven by a lot of passion and initiative.
College Sophomore 2012-11-28T20:44:30Z
I have not received any scholarship. However, the financial department is cooperative and communicates well. I will be trying again for my sophomore yea.

You're in New York City. You can have any food you want, at anytime. Need I say more? Warning: if you move to nyc for school, you may suffer the pizza curse. I am currently afflicted with it. I've spent a considerable amount on pizza since moving here. It's just the best. And there's awesome one dollar pizza a few blocks down from my dorm. Beware the pizza curse.

You have to make your own nightlife. If you like bars and clubs, New York offers a variety of all types and prices. While there are house parties, you have to be outgoing enough to seek them out. There are many neighboring schools that offer their own party scene as well.

If you demonstrate genuine need, NYU will give you good financial aid. A lot of people complain that NYU doesn't give good scholarships, which is true if you come from an upper or middle class background. But for those of us that are poor or working class, they do offer a very good amount of financial aid. I still had to take out loans, but nowhere near as much as if I hadn't received scholarships.
College Senior 2012-11-28T15:28:04Z
You're living in the middle of NYC, there's an almost unlimited number of bars and clubs within walking distance
College Senior 2012-11-28T15:26:16Z
Greek life exists, but only exists as kind of a joke. NYU is a very independent school, people here aren't interested in joining social groups like frats

A few chilly months, but fall and spring in NYC is gorgeous

There's plenty of dining halls to choose from around campus, some better than others. Kimmel and Upstein have delicious choices, but the rest of the dining halls leave something to be desired. Prices are kind of steep for a meal plan, however, and you usually don't end up using all of it.

NYC is a big city, and an expensive one. There's a large availability of apartments, and even some affordable ones, but only if you're willing to look in brooklyn or the upper edge of manhattan, put up with sketchy landlords and brokers, and pay lots of fees.
College Senior 2012-11-28T15:12:38Z
NYU is known for having terrible financial aid; I received a small amount of my tuition covered by aid, and that percentage hasn't risen in the three years I've been here.
College Senior 2012-11-28T15:09:59Z
You're situated in the middle of New York City, what more could you want? Cheap food, lots of variety; cheap comedy shows, movie theaters (including three different indie theaters around campus), shopping, bars, etc.
College Senior 2012-11-28T14:25:07Z
Most of the buildings are relatively new and/or renovated.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
