Ok, where should I even begin? First of all, if you're not into the whole liberal arts thing, then you shouldn't come here. This whole place is all about the fine arts, and many students here are majoring in things like "Dance" and "Theatre." So basically, if you're not into the whole art scene, then it will be hard for you to relate to anyone here. Most of the teachers are friendly and willing to help you out if need be. However, I have also had weird professors who make you feel as though their class is a waste of time and money. Definitely read up on the professors prior to choosing your classes.

Everything here is extremely costly - approximately triple the price (because it's New York City), so it definitely helps to have lots of money. And that brings me to the next thing-the students. Most of them are wealthy and worldly (having traveled everywhere under the sun). There are lots of hipsters and snobby people. Also, if you're a single girl, your chances of finding a datable guy here are fairly slim. About half of the guys are gay, while the straight half mostly consists of conceited jerks who are only looking to get laid. Many people here are still not over the whole high school party scene. They feel inclined to go to the only place they know of that doesn't card (this shady Mexican place downtown) and get as drunk as they can every weekend. Honestly, it gets old after the first two weeks. The immaturity level amongst the students is too high, which is quite disappointing. The best thing about this place is that it's located in New York City, so there's a lot to do…once again, if you have the money. All in all, I'd have to say that NYU is definitely not worth $60,000 a year.
