Where to begin…It's 4 in the morning and like any other college student, I just needed a break from studying. I'm not like most kids here. They are motivated and driven to succeed. I don't like being challenged and I never really liked school. It lasts four years!!! four freaking years!!! If you don't care that much for school, NYU is probably not for you. I think it would be fun to go to an easier school, put less effort in, have an outstanding GPA, go out, have fun and look like a freaking superstar. But here, its challenging and you have a lot of talented peers to compete with. The classes are annoying and ask you to do a lot of work.

However, I love the atmosphere and people. Sure there are arrogant snobby hipstard elitist annoying rich kids, but in tandem, there some very interesting people. Funny, quirky, sincere people who have really cool hobbies like playing volleyball, designing CD covers, sewing, etc. People complain about the social life here, and the fact is its not terrible if you don't have a lot of money. Sure the rich kids go out and party at high-life clubs. You make your social life here. You have to be outgoing, say funny things, join clubs, talk to the person sitting next to you in class. That's how you make friends here. And if someone doesn't like you…s/he is a lame person…move on! Then you and your friends can go to brunch and see a 12 dollar show or concert at the Skirball center.

I love love love the city. Seriously, so many cuisines to try, so many plays to go to, the Hudson River, cool bars on Bleecker Street, great concerts. And you can find great deals on tickets!

The cost is freaking rediculous if you don't have some form of financial aid. The financial aid is really impossible. My friend who was an emancipated minor under 21, was still saddled with high tuition…
