I generally like NYU. So far I've only completed two semesters of classes, but in this time I truly enjoyed my experience. The professors I've had were generally pretty versed yet humble; out of the seven professors I've had so far, two were fluent and literate in classical Greek (excellent for classics and etymologies). In terms of faculty accessibility, I've had a professor who had office hours every weekday for at least 5 hours.

Due to the sheer size of NYU, one must be somewhat social to not be lost and lonely in the crowd but at the same time disciplined as to not become a hedonist. There are certain obstacles to be overcome, but I feel they generally contribute to a full development if one can persevere. NYU, because there is no campus and massive student body, is in the "real world," that is it's make or break. You can either excel in your studies or fall under the weight of your own mediocrity and unpreparedness.

To the naysayers who decry NYU as simply snobby and pedantic obviously, they obviously haven't attended NYU. It's greatly "socially conscious" to the other extreme of the spectrum; by that I mean NYU students are so liberal in thought their "social tolerance" devolves into complete moral subjectivism. Furthermore, any believes that oppose same-sex marriage (such as traditional Christian values) are usually called out at NYU as bigotry, which I find hypocritical because it appears liberals here are only tolerant of views that don't contradict theirs. Lastly, since there is a large percentage of Jewish students, anti-Zionism is automatically condemned as antisemitism, even if it is based on an ethical and moral basis.

commentI had Jewish friends at NYU who were anti-Zionist. Your generalization is invalid.
