My review

The Good:

Being in the City, but living on a gorgeous campus

The Bad:

Can be difficult to make worthwhile friendships because of courseload/nature of the city

Would I do it again?

Yes, Great experience, truly makes you an independent person, can make you or break you

About this school

Biggest influence when choosing this school Location

The financial aid process was a hassle, but I eventually received the aid I needed.

Professors are generally Boring

The night life is Spent in a Bar

Every student at this school needs A way to leave the city if they need to get away ASAP

Most students spend their Saturday nights in a bar downtown

About the reviewer

Favorite class is History of the City of New York

Favorite professor is Barbara Fields

Favorite activity is leaving campus

Another awesome thing is reputation

Study Hard? Pray? Donate Money? do well in high school, do well on the SATs, be in a ton of activities, play sports, etc.

I wish I knew not for long-term relationships

Preparation for the workforce

Time needed to find a job post-graduation I found work before I graduated
