Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2014

Pros: - EXCELLENT clinical training in a wide range of settings - even at the beginning of my fourth year, I felt I was already at the equivalent level of an intern (and my evaluations from my sub-I reflected that). - Student-friendly neighborhood with lots of restaurants, convenient 24-hr shops, nearby public transport - Affordable (and nice!) student housing close to hospitals - dozens of clubs and student activities e.g. formal every semester, ski trip, etc. - P/F first 18 months makes students more cooperative than competitive, but during rotations it can get touchy Cons: - NYU is undoubtedly expensive. Financial aid is basically all loans unless you get a merit scholarship (but it's great that we even have those at all) - C21 curriculum is still kind of in testing/improving mode, but at least the administration are super-responsive to student feedback

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros: Wonderful faculty who really know the material and are accessible. Financial Aid/Scholarhips are better than most schools of this level. The area is great and there are tons of things to do in NY, as one can imagine- the sky is the limit! Students also typically have a healthy work-life balance, which is assisted by the fact that the cirriculum is pass/fail. Students are diverse and come from interesting backgrounds. The school is connected with well-known grad programs, such as the MD/MBA program through Stern. Cons: The cirriculum and testing can be inflexible (tests all must be taken in person on the assigned day, unless one is ill- in which case the school will wok with you to make up the exam). IT problems have also added to this inflexibiliy, at times making lecture recordings unavailable. Exams have also tended to be at the beginning of the week for our class year, reducing the number of "free" weekends. NYC is an expensive place to live, as one can imagine. The cirriculum is 1.5 years of pre-clinical work, which has its own pros and cons. On the one hand, the pace is slightly faster to accomodate a 0.5 year decrease in classes. On the other, this allows for more time to explore clerkships and other passions (reseach, a masters).

I have truly loved my experience at NYU med so far. The fact that everything is pass fail is great and has allowed me to have a life outside of medical school. The workload is challenging yet manageable and everyone truly does work together and wants to see each other succeed, while still striving to do their best. The absolute best thing about NYU is our awesome location in NYC and our close proximity to so many great neighborhoods.

For those interested in the pure pursuit of expanding one's mind while having access to the best professors and departments, this is the program for you. It could also be a good stepping stone for a career in academia if that is something one is aspiring towards from the get-go. The classes are rich and the accessibility of the professors are top notch. The amount of creative flexibility in the program when it comes to crafting one's thesis coupled with the access to amazing journals and other resources of research is second to none. For those who do not come from means and are unsure as to what they'd like to pursue upon coming into the program, this may not be the best financial investment for one's future. I think that coming into the program with a fairly clear idea and plan will help you make the most of the program. Without a clear vision or drive to make great connections with your peers and professors, it can be somewhat of a foolhardy investment, as employment opportunities directly related to your program are pretty sparse, even in areas of academia. A very expensive networking opportunity that can pay itself off in spades if one were to pursue their connections with enthusiasm and determination.

NYU's publishing program is a great opportunity for anyone that is interested in book or magazine publishing. The professors are all working professionals that can serve as references and resources. Your classmates are the people you'll be working with in the future. The classes are in the evening so you can have a full-time or part-time job. You can even have an internship. Being in New York City means that you're right in the middle of the American publishing world. The largest book publishing companies are all in New York. The downside to the program is the cost. of tuition and the cost of living in New York in general. Be ready to have roommates or live outside of Manhattan.

The biggest con is the cost. New York is extremely expensive to live in, and the program is also very expensive. Expect to be $250,000 in debt when you graduate from this doctoral program. The DPT program also isn't the best at integrating technology and newer resources and can sometimes appear unorganized due to being "behind the times" in tech. The pros are many, though. The environment we learn in is excellent; the relationships amongst classmates, different years, faculty, and staff are wonderful. Finding mentors within the program is as easy as knocking on someone's (already open) door. They have excellent connections to facilities across the nation, so you have great and various experiences in the field. The program is also very closely connected to the APTA and very involved. Unlike some programs, this is not based on research; so you spend time learning how to be a good clinician and how to understand the connection between research and treating your patients. They also offer a multitude of certifications; we are required to become CSCS certified and other affiliations are common (e.g.: Pilates training). Also, being in New York means all the amazing opportunities that come with it. Being in this program at NYU feels like I'm within reach of anything I could want, any population, any specialization, and any new business model I want to create or integrate into practice. This program has a record of creating well-rounded, good clinicians and wants everyone in the program to succeed.
