NYU's Global Affairs program has been challenging and rewarding. The expectations of the students are high and I wouldn't have it any other way. The academic, professional, and personal support provided is invaluable and adds to the greatness of the program as well as the school overall. The only true con is the cost of living but that's NYC in general and not necessarily a reflection of the school itself.

The Food Studies program is a relatively new and unique program at New York University. Because of this the department is constantly working out the kinks of the program changing things around, sometimes causing feeling of disorganization. At the same time, this newness has also allowed for flexibility and allows for each student to create a schedule that works for them personally. The program encourages students to work or find internships but does not provide students with help in building resumes, interviewing, and professors do not really seem open to provide recommendations. This creates a challenge. Class within the Food Studies department are excellent, although sometimes quite large. Overall Food Studies is new program in a cutting edge field. Overtime, as the field becomes more defined the program will become more organized and sustainable.

NYUSOM puts you in the middle of New York City and gives you lots of opportunities to meet doctors at many stages of their careers, new people, and gain new experiences. But it also leaves a lot up to the independent student and doesn't necessarily offer a lot of support freely. It is also a fairly competitive environment.

The Silver School of Social is great in that it has various pathways to obtaining The MSW Degree. There are full time, part-time, and even extended programs available depending on what type of lifestyle you are living. One con about the program is the space where the classes are held. It would be great if there was a more modern space to take classes rather than having class at annexes.

New York has been called the center of the Universe and is a definite tourist attraction. It is likely for someone to know about New York and therefore by extension New York University. In this capacity, applying to jobs with my resume has the perk of a well known school. The down fall of NYU is definitely the price of not just tuition but the cost of living. While New York is happening and exciting it is also very expensive. I do love New York for all there is to see and do but, if I wasn't a budgeter it would make living here more difficult.

Faculty members are absolutely amazing. They care about our education; and help anyway they can to make sure that we don't feel overwhelmed and alone. The main problem with the program is that it is expensive.

NYU is a fun school in the best location compared to all the other medical schools in New York City. The faculty really care about teaching and do a good job with the curriculum. Whatever it is you want to do in the field of medicine, you can find that opportunity here at NYU. It tends to attract a younger student population and there are many social events. For students who know what career path within medicine they would like to pursue, the three year MD pathway is an incredible opportunity.
