NYU has the most applicants of any school in the entire US because of it"s reputation :location and entrance requirements. Graduating from NYU will look impressive on your resume and will open doors for you in certain fields such as media and entertainment where your GPA will not be heavily weighed. So if you're considering Tish, for example, the entrance requirements are not that hard ( weight is given to your "audition") and the coursework is easy. However there is no school spirit here no matter what division you are in. Everyone has a sense of the school not really caring about the students. It's a depressing atmosphere. Not what was expected. The administration and faculty are arrogant and condescending and don"t expect to graduate from NYU with a respectable GPA unless you can get by on one or two hours sleep each day. The coursework isn't hard but the volume of material they give you here makes it impossible for you to maintain a decent GPA. The school doesn't seem to care about that. So if you are willing to put the time and work into getting good grades consider going to another school because it's practically impossible to attain that here. You might leave here after having worked your ass off with a low GPA. But if you are willing to sacrifice a decent social life and academic record you can have the brand NYU on you for the rest of your life. Your decision. If you don't care and are only interested in the brand name, no matter what the quality, then choose NYU, as you might choose to wear a pair of sneakers that were too small and hurt to wear but you wore them anyway just to show off the brand. Be careful in what you choose. Sore feet heal but a poor academic record does not.
