Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2015

The pros are certainly the impressive and active professors, the camaraderie among the students, and the location in Greenwich Village. However, even living in law school "subsidized" housing is quite expensive, and finding a place off campus may be very difficult for some people. The other major con for me is lack of need-based scholarships/grants. It seems like the school gives out a great deal of full scholarships instead of spreading the aid among more people.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2016

The quality of education recieved at NYU more than makes up for the substantial workload. I have found the students and faculty to be supportive, friendly, caring, and welcoming.

Degree: Performing Arts
Graduation Year: 2016

I am currently pursuing my Master of Fine Arts degree in Graduate Acting at New York University Tisch School of the Arts. I could not have asked for a more challenging and encouraging environment in which to grow as an actor and artist. My training at NYU Tisch will last for a lifetime.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2013

The graduate program provided a lot of individualized attention and support in what is a difficult learning process that includes a great deal of self growth. The courses are extremely rigorous and clinically oriented. However, I feel I am more prepared to be a social worker than many of my peers that are graduates of other programs. The networking during and after the program is of excellent quality.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2015

Studying Vocal Performance in the heart of New York is an amazing opportunity. Also, the program at Steinhardt is incredible and the professors are very knowledgeable and supportive. However, NYU's tuition is incredibly high. Although I received the "highest scholarship" for a graduate student, the scholarship covers less than a fourth of the tuition. As a rising Opera Singer trying to support herself in the most expensive city in the world, leaving graduate school with massive student loans is quite intimidating.

Degree: English
Graduation Year: 2013

Pro: Incredible support throughout the PhD program, both academic and financial. Plenty of teaching opportunities, both TA-ships and standalone courses. Excellent preparation for academic job market. Real encouragement for student activities, research and reading groups, etc. Location couldn't be better. Con: zero help for students who don't want an academic career. Ridiculous bureaucracy. Suspect ethics on the part of the university administration.

Degree: Public Policy
Graduation Year: 2014

Wagner's strengths are its connection to the larger Urban community with many alumni who come back to offer jobs, teaching and support to students and its combination of theory and practice. In fact, the best thing about the academic curriculum is the ability of each class to have a theory component and a practical component. Plus, with the ability to used NYC as the lab to all your class experiments, NYU is a great choice for studying Urban Policy. In my opinion, however, Wagner needs to step up in its adjunct professor support for students. Most professors are adjuncts with little time to meet students outside class. This hurts the student in the long run and it is a critical issue that should be addressed by the administration.

Degree: Management
Graduation Year: 2014

Stern is a collaborative environment where the diversity and quality of the community create strong value for all students. There is an entrepreneurial sense to the way the school is run where there is opportunity for input, change and to develop new initiatives to keep up with the changing business environment. Although New York is an expensive place to be a student, the access to career opportunities, internships, networking and social events makes the location unparalleled as a business school setting.
