The music business management program is an excellent program with a particularly dedicated faculty. Unfortunately, my biggest concern is the extremely large amount of debt that each student is left with upon graduation. Indeed a great program should be expected to cost a lot and New York City is the most expensive city in the world, but New York University is still one of, if not the most expensive schools in this country. I am a student, but I do not believe education should cost this much for any reason whatsoever.

NYU offer's the first and arguably to most developed graduate program in food studies. Being in NYC also has the unique advantage of being a food culture epicenter, on the forefront of all sorts of trends, while also having several rich and developed communities. An urban environment is only one side however, and NYU struggles with more of the agricultural side of the food communities that other food systems programs can explore more in depth.

The M.S. in Translation program is a rigorous program that expects a lot from its students while giving an excellent quality education. The professors that I have had have been kind and knowledgeable, with one being in the forefront of the career field nationwide. I feel confident that I am getting the best education in the subject matter from NYU. The courses are quite costly and the financial aid does not lessen the burden of the costs in any meaningful way. While I would highly recommend the program, I do think the price excludes individuals who either cannot or do not want to take out student loans.

Degree: Dentistry
Graduation Year: 2018

The DDS program at NYUCD is a rewarding yet extremely intense experience. Fitting in the knowledge and expertise that is required to be a health care professional into 4 short years can be stressful on both the students as well as the faculty. I have completed my first year thus far, and have found that the didactic course load In the first year was tolerable. There were many courses that I felt were unnecessary to our education however, overall the experience was pleasurable. The faculty were always available to meet with students and aid them in understanding the difficult course work. I have just recently begun my second year and feel that the course work has definitely multiplied. Labs are emphasized way more to give students an opportunity to learn the hand skills needed before diving into the clinic during the 3rd and 4th year. I feel that one of the cons of the program would be that they have cut the lab hours short. Unfortunately this shortage of time leaves the students with an increased amount of work that must be completed during their spare time (which is difficult to find, because of the studying required for other courses). I also feel that students are forced to learn most of the skills required for their course work through videos which can be tough and leave you with a sense of uncertainty of whether you have really understood what needs to be done. However, the plus side is the immense amount of faculty present in the school to assist you when you feel the sense of unsureness. All in all, I feel that this graduate program will definitely be beneficial to me because of the population of patients. As a 3rd and 4th year student, I will be able to practice and treat a vast array of patients and potentially be exposed to all kinds of dental scenarios that will help me become a more competent health care practitioner.

Degree: Early Childhood Education
Graduation Year: 2016

I love NYU because of the administrators and professors. They work extremely hard to share their expertise with us and instill in their students a passion for education and to create a change in the current broken system. NYU truly helps their students with ample amount of resources in order to pass any exam and goes far beyond a typical teacher preparation program.

ITP at NYU is an incredibly diverse and unique program that draws students from around the world. The subject matter is as innovative as the faculty.

I love the MCC program at Steinhardt- it's been challenging and rewarding educationally in ways I never expected. Getting a background in media theory has helped me ground my research interests of media technology with an academic background. The main con is the cost of the program, which can be very expensive. NYC is not a cheap city to live in, and you certainly get a "bang for your buck" but it can be overwhelming to a grad student.

Degree: ESL
Graduation Year: 2017

New York University is located in the center of New York City. It is very convenient to everywhere from the school. According to the seniors, New York University offers a lot of job information to students. Compared to students from other schools, international students in NYU have higher chances to find a job in this big apple city and thats all because NYU provides a complete network for us. Although NYU does provide exceptionally good facility for students, the tuition is not affordable. Students may need to find external sources to support their financial needs.

The music therapy program at NYU is one of the best in the world. We learn from professors who are also practicing music therapists, who gained extensive experience in both working with diverse populations and teaching for years. This is a highly recommended program! The only disadvantage is the price of education which is very high and practically impossible without scholarships...
