What impressed you negatively?

"The rundown facilities, the dorms/bathrooms, the huge amount of construction, and the entire interview day. Even though I knew that I'd only get a tour,lunch, and then the interview, I never realized how bad it is to travel so far to get nothing from the NYU staff. We weren't given any presentations (financial aid, etc) or even greetings from any admissions faculty. Just a tour, and that was it. Also, my interviewer was 1 hour late, and they had apparently not read my application very well at all.....they seemed to only know where I was from (from what I read here on SDN, I was expecting them to know my app quite well). Despite the friendliness of my interviewer, I didn't feel very 'welcomed' at NYU at all." Report Response

"That there was going to be a frickin' blizzard when I was there!!! Thank god I made it out of LaGuardia. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"My negative impressions pretty much sum up what I thought of my experience at NYU....I didn't feel welcomed at all. However, every student I talked to seemed very happy to be there, and it seemed like the faculty readily support their students. I just got the vibe that NYU wasn't for me." Report Response
