Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2015

Pros: NYU loves its students, and you feel it at every step of the way. Sometimes if you have a double-block of classes [two of the same class in a row] your teacher will get you food to hold you over! Further, the area is great and NYU has more social events than a person who's just turned 21. Cons: New York City is expensive, generally. Everyone is so smart and talented that it can be intimidating sometimes, but that's really a pro, since that brings everyone up to a higher standard.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2014

Pros: Excellent clinical experience at multiple hospitals so you get to see many different patient populations and become familiar with different EMR systems. Faculty very encouraging and responsive to students. Student dorms subsidized so extremely affordable for this neighborhood. 18-month curriculum allows for great flexibility (e.g. listening to lectures in your room at 2X speed) and has extra time for electives/research compared to traditional 2-2 programs. Pass/Fail first 18 months so classmates send out a lot of study guides and help. Many clubs and school-wide social events (e.g. formal ball, ski trip) Cons: Financial aid mostly loans unless you get a merit scholarship, but counselors are very helpful in answering questions and helping look for outside scholarships too.

In the heart of NYC so it opens up a lot of job opportunities (many students have part time jobs). Faculty is also second to none. Access to the best in the industry is also great. Cons: NYC Is expensive.

There is an incredible selection of interesting courses, and the cultural benefits of being in New York City are impossible to overstate. But professors' (and most students') left-leaning biases can be overwhelming at times, making it difficult to speak out if you don't share their views.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2013

NYU Law is a top five law program which also has a substantial number of friendly, nice students. It's a rare and lovely combination. The school is very public interest-oriented (though the majority of people go into firm work initially, just like every other school), and the amount of student groups doing substantive, important work is truly unparalleled. Yes, you'll get the fancy education and professors, but NYU Law is more than that. The clinics, journals, research opportunities, and Centers all mean that you can follow your heart's desire and leave with attractive practical skills and an impressive resume, if you simply take advantage of them. The career services, public interest, and judicial clerkship offices are extremely helpful (to the point of individualized advocacy on behalf of students); amazing speakers visit the campus with overwhelming frequency (it is impossible to attend all of the events you'd like to); and our Dean goes by "Ricky" and giggles hysterically with ridiculous frequency. What's not to like?

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2014

I have had a very satisfying experience here at NYU Law. The program has allowed me to change my perspectives greatly and learn how to think like a lawyer. Excelling in academics is undoubtedly competitive given the nature of law school curriculum, but I survived to secure employment for my legal career. As one of the top 6 law schools in the States, NYU Law students enjoy a great advantage in terms of proceeding to the next stage of their career advancement, whether in the field of academia, private practice, public interest, government, etc.

I like my school and I think it is very good. Strong academic background and advanced technics in science. The only problem to me is its high tuition fees and house renting.
