NYU turned out to be a huge disappointment. I'm only a freshman and I cannot WAIT to transfer next semester. Never in my life have I encountered such unfriendly, arrogant people. Most of the students here think they are "real New Yorkers" and act as though they are better than everyone else. They all have this stupid, arrogant look on their faces and walk around like they own the place. Dorm life is just as bad, if not worse. Everyone on my floor is obnoxious and very immature. Their weekend "fun" consists of getting drunk in someone's dorm room. It is very hard to find quiet time/focus on schoolwork here.

Not only is the administration extremely disorganized, but they are also cold and unhelpful…probably one of the rudest I've ever encountered. For the price I'm paying to go here, I sure don't expect to be treated like dirt by rude faculty.

The academics are absolutely horrendous. I'm a month and a half into my first semester, and so far I haven't learned ANYTHING that I would be able to apply to a future career. All of my classes are pointless, and the professors are mediocre/unhelpful. I really feel as though I'm wasting my time and money. Also, some of my professors teach their lectures in a sexual manner, which in my opinion is extremely weird. In fact, there's NYU for you: weird professors/lectures are common occurrences here. Literally anything goes. If you are a conservative, please don't come here. This school is liberal beyond belief.

I'm just really tired of all the unhappy, depressing people here. When I went home this past weekend, it was wonderful because everyone there was happy, and I didn't feel the anxiety that I seem to feel here. Also, everything was half the cost.

I could go on and on about the ridiculousness of this place, but I'm just too disgusted to write anymore. My advice is to not come here. It is NOT worth $60,000 per year (or more, since they raise the tuition about $3,000-$4,000 annually). I'm so happy that I'm transferring next semester. Don't get me wrong-I love NYC, and I plan on living and working here in a few years. But I don't love NYU, where I'll rake up huge debt with nothing to show for it. Please, save your money and go somewhere where you'll receive a better education.

commentNot sure what you mean by teaching in a "sexual manner", but I think you come off as a prude if you cannot take a few jokes. As for the useless classes, don't worry. Once you are done with MAP things get better.
You are an asain bitch i am guessing
