What are your general comments?

"The interview was extremely laid back and conversational however I felt like the interviewer was indirectly talking me out of choosing NYU (after I told him where else I applied, he basically talked up those schools and proceeded to tell me how expensive NYU is). There are MANY rumors out there about NYU, all of which were truthfully debunked during the interview and tour. NYU does not kick people out, there are so many opportunities for tutoring and what not that people that do fail out must be trying to. I went into this interview thinking it would just be a practice for my top schools however I really liked the school and would definitely consider it if I ever got over the cost of living in NYC!"
