Be different. NYU is all about diversity. Everyone you meet here is fascinating in their own way. The things you can look forward to here is bragging rights you live in one of the world's greatest cities there's basically no resource or industry not a your fingertips. Internships are everywhere if you take the chance to look and in my first year alone I've met some of my idols: film directors, DJs, musicians etc. Also a lot of kids at NYU have their heart set on what they want to do. We are really school oriented here. You can choose...

    This University is one of a kind! I recently did some research on it and the campus just made me speechless because it's so gorgeous and neat. I would love to attend this University later on in my life and would highly recommend everyone to do the same if you are looking for a great view and a splendid experience.

    When I heard about how NYU is giving free tuition to those who get into their medical school I was very excited because I really want to go there and be a doctor! Hoping it will be a good choice!

    The idea of not having a central campus seems interesting and unique to NYU. With a bit of research, I noticed NYU has a new program where you can combine to majors into a unique class or program you can take to benefit you the most for future jobs. Also, their international opportunities and Shanghai are very intriguing.

    My brother goes to this school and absolutely loves it. When he comes home for break, he talks about all the fun he is having at school, but also about how interesting the classes are. He says that going to NYU was the best decision he ever made.

    I've been seriously looking into NYU -- and more specifically the Tisch school for the performing arts -- for around 4 years now, and having visited the campus I can say that it's the perfect environment for those that are truly individualistic. Reading reviews and simply surveying the student body can really give you great insight into how well you would fit in with the school. Diversity is most definitely prized among the college, and the inclusive atmosphere facilitates important conversations and allows for dissent and expression of personal ideals that help build a community of change.

    NYU is liberal, creative, fun, and global/international. This school is big and located in probably the most interesting city in the world. You can do and study just about anything you want but NYU is pretty big on making you feel welcomed and like part of a small family when you find your niche.

    I am absolutely enthralled with NYU. I was first introduced to the idea of actually attending the school by my teacher, who was a former NYU student. The mix of culture as well as artistic integrity is enough to get me excited about getting into this university!

    It's an amazing school. The culture here will force you out of your shell but on the same note can be isolating if you don't put in the work/can't find good friend groups. I really love the fact that the campus is open and if you really try, you can have some amazing experiences around the city.

    NYU is one of my top schools and I would definitely encourage anyone to check it out. I am planning to apply later this year and I cannot wait. I’ve heard so many positive things about this school and learning in the city, makes learning ten times better.
