Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros: In my eyes NYU is one of the best schools for master. It provides everything that a student would expect from a school, networking, space to create projects, liberty to ask teachers for advises and holds one of the best faculty in the country. Cons: It is a very expensive school, I wish there could be more scholarships toward talent and financial background.

Degree: Art & Design
Graduation Year: 2015

So far I have had nothing but helpful teachers and resources on campus. I have enjoyed eating to know the faculty and staff while preparing for this exciting transition. As promised, I was provided with resources to help me prepare for my graduate school curriculum.

Degree: Fine Arts
Graduation Year: 2017

I am about to enter this graduate program, so I am unable to evaluate it fully. From what I gather, this program is extremely demanding and intense, and therefore rewarding. The faculty are excellent. A con is that the program is extremely expensive, and does not offer financial assistance for the first year, except in the form of loans. That is why I am entering this drawing!

Degree: Communications

ITP is a unique, constantly evolving program. The caliber of student work reflects this and students are challenged to innovate and create new solutions.

Degree: Industrial Engineering
Graduation Year: 2017

A graduate education from NYU is seen as prestigious and elite. My experience thus far has been very rewarding and I am only at the beginning of my educational career. Being able to complete my entire degree online is a huge plus, especially as a working professional. The flexibility of the course offerings is great, too. Although the tuition is higher than other institutions and not much financial aide is rewarded, the value of the degree I believe with be worth it in the end.

Degree: Public Relations
Graduation Year: 2016

I'm currently a corporate attorney who is interested in revitalizing struggling communities through serving small businesses and nonprofits by understanding client needs that well surpass traditional legal concerns. Nowadays, attorneys neglect to envision how their actions impact a business' public image and my hope is to utilize any funding I have received to train in public relations and corporate communication at one of the best schools in the country, so that I may give back to communities that are presently struggling. My parents both lost their jobs recently, and my dream of going to a top-tier school hinges strongly on financial support. Thank you in advance for your time.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2016

A great advantage of my graduate program is that it offers valuable training and formation in my chosen field. As an aspiring researcher in child development, I believe this program gives me excellent training in both statistical and theoretical knowledge . It also provides courses that are often only available at the doctoral level and therefore I feel I can truly be prepared to enter the workforce. A drawback to this program is the limited funding, in terms of scholarships and financial aid. The NYU Master's program in Human Development and Social Intervention is very competitive and I am delighted that I was accepted, but financing my education is my biggest challenge at this time.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2016

New York University's Silver School of Social Work is a highly renowned institution for preparing qualified and motivated students to reach a broad spectrum of individuals who rely on a system that often ignores or mistreats them. The staff and faculty are highly educated and dedicated professors who are passionate about service to others. Although the tuition and cost of living is extremely expensive, the education and field experience that I am receiving is well worth the sacrifices that I have had to make in order to obtain it.

Degree: Journalism
Graduation Year: 2014

There are 10 different graduate journalism programs at NYU that each take somewhere between 12-15 students each year. They are pretty competitive to get into but are definitely worth the fight. The workload is pretty heavy and there is not a lot of free time to get out and explore New York City, but you can make time to do certain things. I typically have about 12-16 hours of class each week which requires a lot of preparation but all of the classes have been really informative and interesting. I came into the program with no journalism background so I had to work hard to keep up at first, but it has been a very valuable learning experience thus far. NYU is in New York in the Village, which is a really fun and exciting part of the city. The only real downside is that NYU doesn't offer a great deal of graduate housing so I had to find a place to live off campus that was reasonably close.
