Guys & Girls:
Not Much Testosterone – You already have more girls than guys enrolled, like 60-40 I would say. But if you count gay guys... the stats are more like 80-20.
and of the 20% that are straight, half are metro or hipsters.

Great Food in Little Italy! There are plenty of cheap and delish places to eat off-campus. Just walk around Chinatown or Little Italy. There's a great place on University Place that has a $12 lunch special that will knock your socks off.

Depends on the Situation – Depends on the dorm, but I hear some of the RA's are pretty strict. There are ways to get around it. you don't need to party int he dorm when you have all of NYC at your disposal.

NYC is the place to be. There is everything and anything you could imagine. NYU is NYC. That basically explains it.

Sports Don't Really Matter – People don't go here for the sports... they go here for the nightlife and to be in NYC...

Since NYU has no enclosed campus within the area, the school does not have any localized buses that bring you from building to building. But overall, the buildings are very close to each other - - a maximum distance of 15 minutes by walk from the farthest buildings.

When you want to think of Diversity in college, NYU epitomizes this concept. We have a lot of students who come from Korea and India for college and from other parts of the world. In addition we have a lot of campuses situated throughout the other parts of the world including our most recent one in Abu Dhabi. NYU is a metropolis for the brightest minds in the world.

Being on the Premed Track as a Chemistry Major – There is a definite prerequisite requirement that the university asks of you as a premed student: 4 Chemistry Courses, 2 biology courses, 2 physics courses (all science courses are with a lab component), 2 math courses and 2 english courses. There are a lot of research opportunities available to students because the professors often head research labs themselves.

Displaced Freshman... Not So Bad – This year, I was displaced into an upperclassman dorm. Although I didn't get the complete freshman experience that I wanted, I really loved where I lived and made great friends. The social aspect wasn't as bad as I thought it would be and having an apartment-style dorm for my first year, definitely enjoyable.

In Anticipation of New York – I have just recently been accepted into NYU's college of Nursing. NYU is known for having a great nursing program and I have heard great things about what New York has to offer from great entertainment, the diversity of the people and delicious food.

Our school is different than any other school because of our location. There is so much to do, see and achieve in NYC. There are tons of opportunities for everything you could ever dream of.

City Life – The city is stressful and the school asks a lot of you. They take all of your money and do not give you your money's worth. The only reason it is worth it is because you're in the city and the opportunities there are endless. Not to mention there is always something to do in NYC.

Sports Are Pathetic – We have no school spirit, no football team, no one really goes to games. It is quiet sad.

Guys & Girls:
There is a gib mix of people at NYU. Some people are hippies, some grunge people, hip hop people, etc. A lot of people here are a little stuck up, but there are some cool people here. Most of NYU's girls dress alike (not me); there wear lots of black, leggings, high heels, moody hooker wear pretty much. The guys are dress like normal guys, but some wear really gross skinny jeans. A lot of people stay out all night, have fake ids, and buy liquor (not me). But here, you'll definitely find people you can vibe with.

NYU is spread out throughout Manhattan, so there are so many places to go to. The vibe around the main campus is relaxed. In Washington Square Park, there are always musicians playing, and you can sometimes here the music in class. There are food places all around, museums, etc. The camous being spread out makes it possible to discover parts of NYC all of the time.

Computer Labs – They have nice computers, a mix of desptop MACs and Dells. However. sometimes the printers stop working, so yo have to go to another lab to print. It gets so crowded in the afteroon and at night, so it is best to go in the morning.

Well, It's Manhattan – Finding an affordable apartment in Manhattan is impossible, as most people from the city will tell you, especially with close proximity to Washington Square. Some people find decently priced apartments, but it isn't easy and the dorms are probably as nice or nicer than anything affordable anyway. There are cheaper apartments available in Brooklyn and other boroughs, but there is a commute.

At Least the Food Is Good – There are zillions of places to eat around NYU, and you can spend a lot less money eating locally than paying for a meal plan after freshman year.

Everything is always open regardless of the weather because of the efficiency of NYC services. On that note, NYU has had 1 snow day in 13 years.

Plenty of Places to Study – There are many options for places to study, get work done or just hang out. The library is pretty impressive as well.

Public transportation is your best bet. The subway is cheap, especially if you buy a monthly pass and its easy to use, runs on a timely manner. Parking is horrible and expensive, its not worth buying a car.

New York is probably one of the most diverse places in all of the US. Lots of ethnicities in the city, there is always ethnic food and museums all over the city. On campus the diversity truly shows. It tends to be a liberal political school, but all political ideologies are accepted and nobody tends to be picked on for them.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
