NYU is a mixed bag, just like New York: there's something for everyone. If you want to start a club with one-legged lesbian nuns, you'll probably get at least three members.

It's a great school for students who take initiative and go after what they want, don't need to be coddled, and who don't expect to make more than a few really good friends. City life can be intense, but it opens a lot of doors in terms of what the city has to offer, and to develop professional networks and gain internship experience.

The size of the school DOES matter. You have a lot of choice in terms of classes and there are a lot of great professors, but you have to fight for what you want sometimes. There is very little 'school spirit' or campus community, and many students feel alienated and atomized in such an anonymous, overwhelming campus setting. More than any other school I know of, NYU is a Corporate University, although this has not necessarily lessened academic integrity so far.

Expensive. Everything's expensive.
