Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: Fine Arts
Graduation Year: 2014

I love my graduate program, but I am only surviving on grad loans. A long way from home in a big city. Expensive city.

The program is multidisciplinary which is unique and interesting but is only a 40 credit program with 20 of those credits coming from required core classes. This severely limits your specialization options as well as being able to take part in the interesting, highly accrediting, versatile classes offered campus wide... kind of defeats the purpose of a multidisciplinary program. Also- an internship is required which is great for practical experience and a foot in the door with certain agencies, but I fully disagree to count this with credits. This should be a requirement, but not for credit... mainly because I do not want to have to PAY NYU for my FREE labor.

Very expensive to attend school here and financial aid is hard to come by. But the city is wonderful, stimulating, and if you can manage to finish your work and not get distracted, you will have a great experience and likely will find work opportunities that aren't available elsewhere thanks to the economy.

Succeeding at NYU requires hard work and commitment. But, for committed students, success is a garantee. I couldn't wish to be anywhere else. It is the best program because it is hands-on and in New York. You can't beat that.

Good program, dynamic city. Could use more administrative support for students. Would like to see more progressive class options with demanding teachers.

4.67 out of 5.0
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.
