Degree: Public Relations
Graduation Year: 2015

Living in New York City is extremely expensive. It is very difficult to be a student in such a place. The program at NYU SCPS is amazing! All the professors are masters in their field and it has be a pleasure learning from them!

The physical therapy program at NYU is a good choice because the class size is small and the professors are helpful and friendly. However, the cost of tuition and living expenses are fairly high so expect to be required to take out several loans.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2015

Excellent, challenging program that focuses on what should be highlighted within the translation field. It touches on both theory and practice, so it is a very well-rounded program.

The Master of Professional Writing program at New York University's School of Continuing and Professional Studies is a brand new master's degree program. I am a member of the very first class, which began matriculation in Fall 2013. So far, the program has been great! I have learned so much that will help me to become the freelance writer of business documents (i.e. press releases, marketing materials, grants) that I aspire to be. It is an online program, but the professors and students are so engaging, we have become a little family. We encourage one another and help one another on an almost daily basis. I am very excited for my progress, career prospects, and future in NYU's Professional Writing program. I would highly recommend it to anyone interested in a career as a writer or just looking to improve their writing skills. While NYU is expensive, and I rely heavily on financial aid, I know the cost and loans I am incurring will be well worth it in the end.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2015

Pros- NYU offers an incredibly rich amount of resources for the various interests of all students. The social work program challenges you to grow personally and academically as well. The professors are generally very open to discussion and differences of opinions, which makes for a very interesting learning environment. I have also found that they are usually very open to meeting with students if an extra consultation outside of the classroom is requested. The program truly challenges you to become self-aware in ways that you never envisioned. It is no longer just a "clinical" school of social work, as the options for year two have expanded to allow a student to take macro or micro paths if they so desire. The resources are endless, and the program even has a dedicated librarian to help you with research if necessary. Cons- One of the biggest cons of the program (and this probably applies to other Social Work graduate programs as well) is that you are expected to go right into field placement and manage actual clients. More often than not, the clients require clinical work which a majority of us are not trained to do. You are learning theory and applying as you go along. The problem with this, however, is that a first year student may be given a client who has a high degree of mental illness, even though they are at a first year placement- a real life situation with real life consequences. While the school does its best to fit students with their background, education and experience, it seems to me that a more reasonable approach would be to postpone field placement until the second semester of the first year. This way, a student has more opportunity to get their bearings on the basics and get prepared to deal with some of the situations that they will encounter. While this strategy does not provide any guarantees, it would give the professors and students the opportunity to share information, experiences that may better prepare a student intern to deal with real clients. Taking this road would be beneficial to both the clinician in training and the clients who see them as an authority figure.

This program will not only prepare you for the work force but provide the kind of credentials and support necessary to build a strong network and maintain upward mobility.

The NYU program for a Master of Science in Translation is excellent. Given that it is strictly online, I could only judge certain aspects from a limited point of view (such as social life). The courses and their respective professors have been nothing but top tier, and the workload, although challenging, is necessary and productive for becoming a successful translator. I highly recommend the program to anyone considering a career path in translation.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2016

The part-time MBA program is a good experience for those who want to keep working and going to school. The great faculty at Stern is still the same that teaches the program. Education wise is undiminished if not enriched by the experiences of other working professionals in the classroom. However, there are some factors which diminish the overall experience. The kind of support available for the full time students is not quite available for the part-timers in regards to job search, use of campus lockers etc. But as a plus, the school is actively working to improve this. I would like to eventually see the same level of integration experienced at Chicago Booth and Northwestern Kellogg in this same program.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

New York University is an excellent institution with several resources and opportunities to offer students. The location in the heart of New York City is unbeatable, although living expenses will be higher than schools outside of the city, and financial aid is very minimal. The faculty are more than willing to help students with academics and networking, however, it is up to the students to reach out for support. The student body in the program is very diverse, offering a broad range of world views and life experiences inside and outside the classroom. Overall, if students can afford living expenses and the cost of tuition, this is a high quality program with excellent opportunities to grow academically and build a professional network in New York City.
