Degree: Engineering
Graduation Year: 2015

Overall, NYU poly classes are demanding but the value of the education is tremendous. As for money, they are very generous with scholarships but it takes hard work to keep the GPA requirement. The school is highly diverse with many international students but it's in downtown brooklyn which is a great area to live. The ease of getting in and out of manhattan allows for a great cultural experience to go although with the educational one.
2.58 out of 5.0
Degree: Communications (Journalism & Media)
Graduation Year: 2015

NYU is a great academic institution. The professors in the graduate programs are all brilliant and offer a tremendous amount of resources. Additionally, the opportunities and resources available for research are unmatched (except perhaps for Ivy League institutions). The cost of living is outrageous, but that's not NYU's fault. If you make friends easily, you'll have a great social life. If you are shy, this is a difficult setting to make friends.

Degree: Music
Graduation Year: 2018

Although this program is very demanding and time consuming, it is incredibly rewarding and intellectually challenging: it pushes your limits getting the best out of you and gives you freedom and encouragement to engage in any topic or field of interest.
4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2014

I honestly could not have asked for an overall better medical school experience.
3.33 out of 5.0
Degree: English
Graduation Year: 2015

The NYU GSAS MA in English Literature is a tremendously competitive and useful degree to hold in the field. My professors are amazing. Every professor I have is on par with those rare very, very best professors I encountered as an undergraduate. Even so, it is a super expensive program that offers next to no financial aid, and living in New York City is astronomically expensive.
4.75 out of 5.0
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2014

The Graduate program in Cognition & Perception at NYU is certainly one of the best in the world to learn about the brain and how to do top quality and creative research. Research is central in the graduate program: Prestigious faculty members, top-level research, and great interaction with researchers, postdocs and students from other labs and other departments (neural science, computer science, phylosophy, linguistics). You will start research immediately and will have the chance to be exposed to a broad range of topics in cognition and perception. Should I add that New York City is a wonderful city??
