What impressed you positively?

"the facilities were very beautiful. they stood head and shoulders above other schools like Univ. MN, Tufts, Boston U., UCSF, and UoP. NYU is my first and only choice of dental school based on what they had to offer and their facilities." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"the tuition is steep and the cost of living in new york is also steep." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"actually I discovered more things than what I had read from my sources. you really had to come to the school to really appreciate what they have to offer. the new dean there is doing an outstanding job in terms of making the school more relevent and competitive for the 21st century. much laudatory kudos for him and his staff." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"you can't compare NYU to any CA schools. to utter the NYU and UoP in the same sentence as someone else did in a previous posting is ludicrous. NYU is considered IVY league, and UoP is well...UoP. NYU is a hell of alot nicer than say PENN. I just worry about the enormous class sizes there though. But I was told by an upperclassman that 98% will pass. Those that usually struggle are married students with kids. Which makes sense in terms of committment and care for children in general. My general impressions of NYU are positive. NYU is my first and only choice. Seeing is believing though and I encourage those with NYU interviews to go physically there to see it and not do a regional interview if it is offered. September is the earliest they offer interviews and they're held mondays and fridays only so plan ahead!! Good luck and hope to see some of you at NYU. " Report Response
