When i started applying for colleges NYU was at the top of my list. It was my dream school, I walked by it all the time when i was younger and i wanted to be part of the student body at NYU for as long as i can remember.

I applied early decision and I got accepted.

They only reason they accepted me because i won a couple essay contests for Scholastic and the New York times , I scored a 2200 on my SAT , I had a wonderful Portfolio , A very "unique" essay and of course I'm "Hispanic".

I was surprised i got accepted but quickly my eagerness and positive views were diminished when I started to get acquainted with the campus and professors.

First thing to take in mind is that their really isn't a social life at NYU. You have to be really independent to get , everyone is self consumed. HEY we're in New York , everyone is constantly busy and barely have time to stop and chit chat with strange by-passers. Hearing stories from the bald man and the deprived kid jumping stories onto the spikes. It saddened me. I knew why everyone wanted to do so.

It is overwhelming at times and i to thought the library was a perfect place to die. Not that im that type.

Usually i would get a few people stop and talk to me but i decided to not stay at the dorms. ( They are ratty and overpriced.) Luckily I had a family member with an apartment building close by. I was able to save money for a while.

NYU has terrible financial aid , which is why rich , arrogant , snotty , robotic , close-minded bags run the school.

There are many gay men in this school , the women are terrible and stuck-up.

I hated this school , its a brand.

A waste…a death trap.
