nyu is an absolute mess. the administration has got to be one of the most disorganized and rude bureaucratic systems I have ever seen in my life. NYU enjoys ripping the students off as much as possible. They are incredibly lazy and the professors and faculty never want to do any extra work to ensure your happiness and satisfaction. In other words, you will in no way be getting your moneys worth.

On top of all that, the social life is disastrous. I can't stress this point enough. I read a lot of the negative reviews before coming to NYU and they made me nervous—for good reason. They are entirely true. You can kiss a decent social life goodbye if you come here. Don't get me wrong, some people love it and have the time of their lives but most do not. Most people here absolutely despise NYU with every fiber of their being and cant wait to leave. There's a reason why NYU has the #2 highest suicide rate in the country, you know.

I was hesitant to transfer because I thought I would give NYU more time. I wish I had transfered. Now I'm stuck at this god forsaken school for another two years…don't ask me how I'm going to get through it. Do not apply here. Even if you love urban living, there are better options that will actually have good academics and will foster a healthier atmosphere.
