Student & Graduate Reviews

4.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2014

The music therapy program at NYU is quite a competitive program to get into, and rightly so. With top quality professors and an extensive and caring network, students emerge with training that cannot be compared to any other. One disadvantage to this program is the limited amount of scholarship money offered to its students. Taking tuition and costs of living in a city like New York, a bit of aid for a graduate student at NYU would be nice to see.

Great school with great faculty and reputation, academically challenging and encouraging to push yourself forward to achieve academic greatness. It's just really expensive to be an NYU student.

Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2017

NYU has an amazing support system that helps you to feel at home and comfortable. Being in the middle of NYC, it can be expensive but the student stipend is sufficient.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2014

The professors are excellent as is the quality of the education. I wish there were more opportunities for financial aid and a smaller work load.

Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2014

One thing I love about my program (the Draper Interdisciplinary Masters Program in Humanities and Social Thought) is its flexibility and great selection of interesting courses. You are only required to take four courses within Draper. The rest you can take in any department within the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, but so far every course I've wanted to take is already cross-listed with Draper! It really covers everything I'm interested in. The only really frustrating thing is the lack of funding for MA students. There are really no grants available, just loans and work-study. But I enjoy the program so much that it's worth it.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros: Great curriculum with lots of early clinical exposure, great teaching facilities, taking Step 1 after the clinical year, great location, friendly students and very accessible faculty Cons: Sometimes the curriculum moves a little too fast (but secretly this is a pro), there have been some IT problems but those have usually been resolved on time
3.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Journalism
Graduation Year: 2015

New York is one of the most exciting cultural cities in the world. Studying Journalism with immediate access to the city and its inhabitants amongst an esteemed faculty in the center of Manhattan makes this experience a unique one unobtainable anywhere else.

It's wonderful, yet difficult. Very challenging and rewarding.
