New York University is a wonderful school filled with many bright and talented individuals. It has been a great experience learning from the faculty and interacting with other scholars. The school surrounds Washington Square Park, which is a beautiful view while studying. The downsides are the steep expenses of the school as well as the great amount of workload placed on students, but these aspects are expected with any prestigious institution.

Graduation Year: 2015

The pros of my graduate program is that it is a small program compose of only 8 people. This means that the attention that we all have towards the program is very focused. We have connected and use each other as resources for our individual projects. The program also provides a curriculum that encourages intensive work within our fields. The cons: Because we are a new program at NYU, there is sometimes unclarity on what needs to happen. However, this means that we are developing the program as we go which is very exciting. Not sure if its a total con.

Pros: NYC, excellent faculty, community of students, freedom of expression, location. Cons: expensive, facilities are lacking, isolation from other schools (I have never met someone who goes to stern...)

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2016

Some of the pros in the Silver School of NYU graduate program include the faculty members, who come from a range of diverse practices within the field. Silver School has its own separate building, where all social work classes are held making it very convenient to attend classes. The graduate level courses and curriculum are very relevant to the field work. Silver has a wide range of field placements and it is a very clinically oriented program for those who are interested in Clinical Social Work. Some cons of the program are that grants and scholarships are very limited. Also, the student population within the program is not too diverse.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2016

The pros of the Masters of social work is that it is a clinically focused program, the professors are very knowledgeable in said subject and there are very intelligent and hard working students in the program. The cons of this program/NYU is the lack of scholarships available, I felt as though I didn't learn as much as I could have learned with one professor, and NYU can do better with diversity.
2.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2014

-Huge, bureaucratic administration; expect to have at least a couple of major ordeals with your registration, financial aid, etc. People are nice and will resolve it, but it's a pain. -Professors are generally good, helpful, and well-connected, though my friends and I all had at least one truly terrible class (in different departments). -NYC is one of the best possible places to be academically, culturally, and in almost every other respect. -Very high tuition and little financial aid for many MA programs, coupled with extremely high cost of living.
4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2016

NYU Stern is a great MBA program with incredible career opportunities and support. From the moment you arrive, you can tell why the school has consistently been highly ranked over the past few years. They have successfully moved away from being a finance-only business school and truly cater to MBA candidates from every background who are looking to get into every sector. You also cannot beat the location - New York City is literally where everything is at. While your other MBA friends are taking planes, trains, and automobiles to come attend recruiting events, you can slip out of your apartment and walk a few blocks up the street to meet with some of the top executives at the world's most powerful companies.
3.92 out of 5.0
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

The program is great. The cost of living in NYC is astronomical and adds to the stress of completing the program. However, the quality of education and available technology for research at NYU are outstanding.
4.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Music
Graduation Year: 2018

The administration is ridiculous, and there is not enough guidance to finish in five years.
