Great school on some levels (NYC, Great Guest Lectures, Some cutting edge faculty) but distant, not well organized, sometimes difficult to find out all the things that are going on or the true benefits to students like discount movie and show tickets for example, nobody tells you about this or the many clubs—it's hard to find out about this. Also, everything seemed to COST. Undergrad was constantly about charging MONEY. I didn't even know where to go if I had a cold.. years later I find out there's this great FREE health service. Maybe with WWW some of this lack of information has been fixed. I also hated the library. NEVER had books in and things were difficult to find. While at NYU you do get the feeling that you are in an exciting place and they love to plug themselves.. but there's still a great lack of interest in individual students. I'd sum up NYU as a series of ups and downs (honestly like any college) but with a trend that for the future meaning they are always talking about how great the school is GOING to be… always planning for bigger and better and you always feel like you were before that period which kind of sucks.
