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.

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.

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.

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.

Degree: Music
Graduation Year: 2018

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

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017

The PhD program in Psych at NYU has the potential to be great, given the interesting research coming out of the department. However, working in extremely limited facilities with competitive access to lab and office space, no internal funding available to pay research subjects, and a "research focused" program where faculty members are loathe to actually instruct students in any capacity makes it highly unsatisfying, especially during the first years. If you are a student looking to learn during your time in a PhD program, you will likely be disappointed at the level of mentorship available. If you come in with a set research program and just want to power through on your own, you'll probably be fine.

Degree: Music

The program lacks sufficient structure and support to complete a doctorate within five years.

Degree: English
Graduation Year: 2015

Great program. Excellent professors. The program focuses on expanding your knowledge base while helping you focus on one subject matter. Although the hope remains for you to pursue your PhD after completing the MA, you do have NYC as your background--opportunity to try a different occupation is everywhere!
