Major: Physics (This Major's Salary over time)
Where to start? Building maintenance is terrible - no a/c repeatedly when it's hot; no heat when it's cold. Long walks to class eat up lots of time. Food in dorm (Third North.) Tuition - extremely expensive, which means that other aspects of the school need to be superior in order to get good value for the money; unfortunately, the university falls very short - the administration and faculty are almost all unhelpful with any issue - you are forced to pester and become obnoxious just to get heard or helped with anything. Freshmen are treated like something stuck to the bottom of their shoes. Physics labs cancelled (even tho you paid for the course) because 'the department doesn't have the money to hold the physics 1 lab this week' - can you imagine this happening at any other top school!!??? No social life what so ever. Most of the kids are so unhappy - be very sure that you want to spend your college years in a completely anonymous environment, where your presence or absence makes absolutely no difference to anyone or anything. NYU is all about the money, but they use none of to support undergrad education - terrible physical facilities for undergrads; nice facilities on campus are rented out to outside users and generally off-limits to undergrads. Strongly consider all your college offers and make sure that NYU is the best value for you - if you have scholarship money from elsewhere, but none from NYU - the quality of the school is not high enough to make up for that difference. This school is highly over-rated as an undergraduate institution. Probably better in certain grad schools, but lousy for undergrads.
