NYU is what you make of it; because it is a large school, no one is going to take the time to hand you the resources you need to achieve your goals. However, if you take the initative to find them, they are available to you. Too often students complain about the lack of a campus or the high tuition. However, both these facts are made clear to prospective students, long before they come to the university. NYU is in the middle of New York City therefore, it does not have a campus green. In addition all of NYU's tuition numbers are available on the website which is very easy to navigate. There are a lot of students who come to NYU because of its good reputation, its well know programs, and its New York City location and then act shocked to find out that there isn't a football team and the dorms cost a lot of money. A little research might help some of these students make better choices. I always tell people that NYU is an investment. If you are willing and/or able to put the time, the money, and the effort into your education at NYU, you will be more than satisfied with the results in four years. I know plenty of graduates who beat out their Ivy league counterparts for jobs because of their hard work and NYU's connections. You can't come to NYU expecting to have a "typical" college experience, NYU and NYC force you to grow up pretty quickly. If you are someone who expects things to be handed to you, you should not come here. You will most likely be disappointed, and at the end of four years you will feel like you have just wasted A TON of money and four years of your life for a slip of paper and not much else. I am very impressed by the resources of this school, its reputation, my peers (with the exceptions of the rich Alumna/us' children and lazy students who don't do much else besides complain), and the faculty. If you are willing to work hard then the sky's the limit at NYU.
