How this student rated the school:
I first showed up for orientation I probably knew less
about The Cooper Union than 95% of the incoming class.
I had never been to New York City prior
to that day. I'm very fortunate that everything worked
out - I could have been incredibly miserable during those
four years. But somehow the city transformed that misery-inducing
torture into something that would be the most influential experience
in my life. I am finishing up at grad
school in Carnegie Mellon University and am co-founding a new
company. Cooper/NYC played a primary role in both of
these achievements - Cooper beat me to a pulp and
NYC made it fun. The combination breeds intensity.
The most important prerequisite about going to Cooper, and not
regretting it, is to have a strong sense about what
you want to do. You don't have many choices
there so switching majors is very difficult. And you
should be prepared to work, work, work (some majors are
heavier than others...). You won't even realize what you're learning.
