I'm so disappointed by the majority of negative comments on this site. Its true, you have to be tough as nails to survive at this school and that is why I love it. Living in the city with a diverse student body eager to learn is amazing. There is so much to do here—the village is rich with culture and throbbing with life. NYC is the most diverse and compelling city in the entire world. It can be impersonal at times, but that's not NYU—it's the way that New York is in general. Don't expect to have your hand held or to have people be super nice to you. New Yorkers have a hard exterior. Coming from West Virginia I was at first alarmed by this, but when it comes down to it everyone here is mostly personable, sarcastic, outspoken and always have an opinion.

Plus—I'm doing what most college GRADUATES don't get to do. I'm on the Washington Square Newspaper and although only a freshmen, I have already talked with Obama's press office, got an internship at the New York Times through an NYU connection, and met the editor in chief of Vanity Fair and Newsweek who gave me her number. Please tell me what other school would allow you to do all of this your freshmen year? Exactly. Next spring I'm going attending NYU's internationally acclaimed study abroad/journalism program in Ghana to do research about Africa. Again, what other school has this sort of opportunity? I'd love to know.

I'm an English major and Journalism minor—and contrary to what everyone says CAS is absolutely amazing (once you get past all of your MAP courses). I luckily knocked mine all out of the way this year. NYU is a huge university so they offer literally any class you can think of. If you want to take a certain class—go and ask the professor. This school tests your limits and really puts your character to the test. At NYU you will learn very quickly that nothing is handed to you. I think this is not only character building but it's also a reflection of the real world that we can apply to our post-graduate life.

I would never want to be at another school in the world. You couldn't pay me to go to Harvard, Princeton, Yale, anywhere. I honestly feel I have been afforded opportunities and had experiences that most college graduates won't ever even get. I'm getting a fabulous education while soaking up NYC culture and partying all around the city with my best friends. Nothing in the world could possibly top the NYU experience.
