What impressed you negatively?

"A couple of students we ran into seemed stressed out...elevators seem to be perpetually busy, felt kinda tight space-wise (but hey, its in Manhattan, what do you expect?)" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Hoe nice the faculty was. There are a lot of bad reviews about NYU about faculty being bad and it being a mess: they have a new director (2007 on) and they remodeled the whole place so naturally renovations got in the way of students. Now its all finished, they cleaned house out of some bad apples, it felt awesome....loved it. Wasnt expecting to find such pleasant faculty in NY of all places!" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Really liked it - GET THERE EARLY.....it really pays, TRUST ME....arrive like 20 or even 40 min before. They do intervews by first-come so they looove that......GO EARLY!!!! The faculty seemed very nice (and Im talking about 3 diff people not just one fluke) and they were in the middle of class and smiling so it was not an act...some students seemed very stressed but other seemed very relaxed and happy. I guess it depends on which environment suits you...if you know how to get what you want youll like it - if you prefer having your hand held and be praised and petted on the head then dont come here and look for a school in the midwest (no pun) I LOVED IT!!"
