NYU can be the best place in the world, but also the worst. Don't expect to be coddled and have you hand held, but do expect the best in-college opportunities in the nation if you seek them. I had friends doing schoolyear investment banking internships at Merrill, and others working at NBC and networking with celebs at MTV. I graduated with a great GPA, and had no problem finding a finance job that paid me $95,000 my first year out of college—I was a Math major in CAS. I have many friends who did the same.

But on the other hand, I knew many kids who weren't as focused as me and weren't all too happy. Instead of using the city's resources like some of us did they moped about not having a perfectly collegial atmosphere and football games on the weekends.

All that said, NYU can open a ton of doors for you that couldn't be opened at any other school in the nation, but at the same time, if you're not so focused and want more of a traditional college environment, NYU may not be for you.
