I went to NYU in the 90's - the Tisch School of the Arts for Film, but transferred my junior year. I would have to say that since the university is so large, it really depends on the college you're in - the dept. - in terms of having a great social experience. I made friends with many of the people in my film classes, but that was probably because we had to work so closely together. As far as the location - what better place to be than NY if you're interested in the arts, right? Well, if you're loaded, sure no problem, if not, look out. Even back then the tuition was outrageous, dealing with Financial aid dept. was a headache and the class I took outside of Tisch was lacking - it was a creative writing class and everyone in it thought he or she was the best writer in the class - kind of pretentious. I couldn't put my finger on it then, but what I think I was sensing in the other class was a little rich kid trying to be hippyish-cool vibe. I'm still paying on that flipping student loan for the one year that I attended. Look at the dates potential NYU'ers - it's 2003 now - I was there 10 years ago. Think carefully before choosing this school. If you don't have a lot of money or you're not in love with art/culture and NYC in general, go somewhere else. If you do your homework, you will find that there are plenty of great schools out there that are socially rewarding, academically strong and affordable. I wish I would've done that a long time ago instead of setting my sights on the monolithic NYU.
