Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2014

This program is extremely hands on. It provides many networking opportunities and grows you in all areas of acting, directing and teaching. The professors are amazing and are always there to help.

Degree: Marketing
Graduation Year: 2014

This is been the best experience of my life and I wouldn't change a thing. The only con is that New York is expensive.

Degree: Performing Arts
Graduation Year: 2013

The area is really great, but the academic setting of NYU is not challenging and it feels like I am merely paying for a degree

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2015

NYU is an amazing school with great opportunities. One wish I have is for the physical facilities of the campus to be more attractive (in line with peer schools) and provide space for the gatherings required by having such a large class-size.

NYU Law: great public interest community, excellent professors who care about their students, amazing clinical opportunities, all in the West Village!

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2015

Awesome community of people. NOT cut-throat, but quality education and peers (for both public interest and firm track students). School does a lot to support people. That said, it could do more for diversity, and cost of living in New York City is expensive...

Degree: Occupational Therapy
Graduation Year: 2016

I chose to study at New York University because of its reputation within my field of study. I knew that their graduate program in occupational therapy would prepare me the best for my future as an OT practitioner. Their professors are extremely competent and well known within the occupational therapy community. I would consider the cons of this graduate program its price tag. Unfortunately, this two and a half year masters degree will cost me over $100,000. Not to mention that the cost of living in NYC is already high to begin with. I am happy with the decision I made, but I hope that in addition to the loans I have received, I will be fortunate enough to receive outside help in the form of a scholarship.

Degree: Law

Great professors and course offerings; relatively supportive environment; significant pressure around finals times and job searching

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2015

NYU Law is one of the top ten programs in the country by just about any useful metric that I am aware. The career counselors are very helpful and friendly, my professors have all been accessible outside of class, and the majority of my professors have been challenging and encouraged us to think deeply about the doctrinal matters. The two major concerns are monetary in nature - NYU's tuition is very high, and the cost of living in the West Village is also very high. However, NYU is fairly generous with scholarships, and if you are able to live off campus, the cost of living can fall dramatically. However, living off campus has its own trade-offs, but that is less relevant to analysis of the program.
