New York City is a great place to be a grad student and can get into finance industry. That said, first year material tends to be remedial and it only picks up during second year.

Degree: Public Policy
Graduation Year: 2014

SIPA is extremely internationally-based and does not seem to offer as wide of a variety in domestic-based policy courses. Cohorts have a wealth of work experience from extremely diverse backgrounds. Professors are either extremely accessible and nice or terribly arrogant and should not be teaching. Overall, a good program for those interested in international public affairs.

Pros: Ivy league university means something to me. The program actually teach me little new materials but I think the projects I have done means a lot. they have built a perfect connection between textbooks and real world. Cons: Too many students here. If you are looking for a TA, just found the crowded place. And he or she will be in the center.

Degree: Fine Arts

Life here is really competitive. The main library is always filled with students even after 12:00 at night. Every teacher and professor here is kind and warm-hearted and willing to offer help anytime. It is really a nice place.

a little different from what we have wished to get from the programme, because of the field in US is quite different from China.Homework are so much and cannot be completed together with pre-reading of materials.
