Degree: MBA

Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2015

Great art world network and career support, but a very expensive program in a very expensive place with graduates earning well under 50K (which doesn't pay the bills in NYC). Academic rigor did not meet my expectations, but it really is the type of program where you can coast by if you want to, but the resources are there, so you get what you put into it. My experience was good but the money I spent didn't get me the income level I thought I was working toward.

There is a tight niche community that provides an accessible network to its students.

Degree: Art & Design
Graduation Year: 2014

The pros of my program is the fact that I have access to the vibrant life of New York, some of the masters of my field and the best professors ever. The cons are that New York is notorious for egregious housing prices making it difficult for students to live comfortably in some cases. Still- I am confident that the tradeoff will even out with the doors that will be opened from the abundance of contacts and networking opportunities. I also believe that that the degree will more than pay for itself.

Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2016

New York University is one of the most independent and resourceful environments a student can be placed in. The culture and networking opportunities are endless. With a vast student body it becomes difficult to adjust for some students, however scenery like Washington Square Park, bring life to the school.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2017

This program has inconsistent quality of instruction and high tuition. However, the other students are all highly motivated, and on the whole a very bright group. The location is unbeatable, with excellent access to amenities through the school.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2016

NYU is a big institution in the middle of the city, which creates an environment with many opportunities for learning. The big school also allows students to network and create relationships with New Yorkers. Unfortunately, NYU is not an affordable school and their financial aid is not very beneficial for students.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2016

As a new student in the Silver School of Social Work, I am very pleased to say the least, to the support and the professionalism of the staff and faculty. They are very patient with the many questions I may have in regards to the program. I am very excited to start in the Fall and meet my classmates, they seem just as excited as I am. I think that my two years in Americorps- City Year will definitely help me and invigorate me for the next 2 years of the program.
