He cares more about Campus Maintenance than the average student.
Date: Jan 29 2013
Major: Psychology (This Major's Salary over time)
It was the biggest mistake of my life. 25k seemed reasonable. Although 1 year later it turned into 40k. When somebody says that you're invisible unless you're a theatre or dance major THEY ARE NOT EXAGGERATING. I was in the dorms 20 blocks away from campus which is quite literally an office building. They love to tell you that there's a sense of community here but even in your closet of a dorm, you probably won't make many friends. The school really is comprised of rich kids who really couldn't care about academics. While there, I read psychology and art history. The psychology department is probably the worst maintained department on the whole island of Manhattan. I achieved high marks in 300 level classes but quite honestly, I could have taught the courses myself after a good look on wikipedia. Since this school isn't nearly as open minded as they would like to think they are, I made virtually no friends. After nor friends comes depression, then comes apathy towards course work. It has essentially ruined my academic career solely on the fact that even the highest level classes are hold no distinction from your basic community college 101 course. I should probably also mention that I received both the second highest scholarship and than the first the following semester. Even with those awards it covered less than a fraction of my tuition. It wasn't challenging, it wasn't fun, and the students are next to brain dead. There were a few good professors with sensational qualifications, but for a few others, just flatter them here and there and that A is yours. If you think that this might be an easy A to get into your dream job or graduate school, you very easily could attain that A. But let it be known that even though they focus on the performing arts, the school has no distinction nor credibility whatsoever. It is the laughing stalk of the private education ring not only in NYC, but almost all of the English speaking universities in the Western world. BUT, if you think you're the absolute best, go! By all means! If you think your Chanel watch and savoir-faire of the greatest pop music in the past three months will get you far, go. If you just love being told what to do regardless of how half assed it is in reality, how to do it, and then being told to pay criminal amounts for it, please, go. For your own sake, please, PLEASE reconsider your options. There is no situation so desperate that you have to go to this god awful, quasi-extension of high school. Your parents will thank you, but perhaps more importantly, your future salary will thank you.
