Degree: Higher Education
Graduation Year: 2016

Faculty are friendly and very knowledgeable, but may not be the most helpful in terms of advisement. Financial Aid is based off of projected costs of attendance, which were not accurate. Example: Projected cost of tuition: 13,000, actual cost, 14,900. That 2000 is not covered by loans, so I have to find another way of paying for it. Students are competitive, but friendly. Plenty to do and the transportation is very reliable.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2015

The social work program at NYU has a clinical focus. Designed to give students a solid foundation in becoming future therapists versus social work activists, the program places students in internships that foster their ability to work with a wide demographic of clients. The curriculum fosters awareness of diversity, gender, ageism, racism, and oppression and provides a solid foundation for future social workers.

Pros: Incredible opportunity, best of its kind. Teachers are passionate and loving and generous. Students are communicative and supportive. Location is fun and exciting. Cons: Financial aid for grad students is non-existent except for loans. Tuition is ridiculous (fortunately the degree is worth it). NYC is expensive.

The biggest pro is the surrounding environment and opportunities available to us as graduate students in New York City. The biggest con is the large amount of student loans required to borrow in order to attend this school.

Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2015

New York University is like no other school. The experience of going to grad school with not just the smartest people, but with the most happening city all around you. There is no other school so immensely intertwined with a city with an unlimited amount of opportunities all around. This school is a great school and I would recommend it to all

Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2017

The Sackler Institute of Graduate Biomedical Sciences at NYU School of Medicine is a great place to be in graduate school. If you are not used to the cost of living in NY, then it seems quite expensive but in the PhD program, you receive a competitive stipend and subsidized housing so its actually pretty affordable.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2015

The pros of NYU are the location, the quality of the networks, confidence in job placement after graduation, excellent emphasis on clinical skills. I have met and been mentored by a couple of wonderfully brilliant professors. More pros include, great social life and cultural experiences. The biggest con about the school is the limited resources for scholarships as well as the tuition and living expenses being extremely high.
