“transferring to NYU is the best decision I'veJan 18 2014Political Science
GOOD: The professors are all brilliant and most of them are very friendly, the wassmerman center is a great place to find awesome internships in NYC (I've already had two really great ones), other students are friendly if you put yourself out there and make friends, NYC!!!!, so many clubs, good food, awesome study abroad opportunities
BAD: Financial aid can be horrible, most of the kids come from fairly wealthy families so coming in as someone with 100% financial need was difficult because I felt a little alienated, solving issues normally involved many telephone transfers to offices that cant help you, its easy to feel isolated so you have to make it known that you are looking for friends. I always say hi to people I see in the hallways of my building and make and effort to take to them and I am doing fine. On the other hand I know some other students that get upset because they feel like they don't have any friends. You really can't depend on other people, you gotta take care of yourself.
My advice would be, be yourself and meet all of the beautiful interesting people around you.
Get a job! nyc can eat your money very quicklyget an internship if you can
