What impressed you positively?

"The students are nice and friendly. New York City is awesome. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The facilities are pretty crummy, and the dorms aren't so nice either. My interviewer didn't seem all that interested in me. He actually gave me the impression that he didn't know why the heck I was even applying there, which is strange because I thought they were supposed to try and sell the school to you?" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"According to my interviewer, even though the school is P/F, there is still an informal system of ranking and that everyone knows about it. I asked him how that could be determined since there weren't grades, and he shrugged and said, "People meet behind closed curtains." I have no idea if he was just messing with me though...he was a bit strange." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall, I didn't leave with a great impression of NYU. The facilities are pretty old, the dorms where the first years live aren't that nice, and my interview was a little strange. The students are pretty cool, and they seem really relaxed with the P/F system, but my interviewer told me they still get ranked informally...who knows if that's actually true. The faculty also seem very friendly and accessible. I'd love to go to school in NYC for 4 years at a P/F school, but probably not at NYU. They also seem to really push to find out what other schools you've applied to...it made me feel a bit uncomfortable." Report Response
