Student & Graduate Reviews

3.17 out of 5.0
Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2016

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.
3.83 out of 5.0
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.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2017

Great location, well known, highly selective, amazing network, and brilliant faculty.
2.08 out of 5.0
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.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

There is a tight niche community that provides an accessible network to its students.
4.58 out of 5.0
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.
2.83 out of 5.0
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.
