3 College Junior

Greek Life: The greek life is very limited.

4 College Junior

Academics: As a recently-enrolled student who has not yet begun classes, I cannot reliably judge academics. I am well aware of the sterling reputation of the school, and certainly the orientation for prospective students led me to believe that academics are at a very high level. I look forward to learning the specifics.

4 College Junior

Academics: Again, as a newly-enrolled student who has not yet attended classes, my answer here is somewhat speculative. However, I can say that what seems apparent, from the orientations I have had thus far, is that there is a great deal of flexibility in curriculum that allows the student to customize her/his academic path, that facilities seem to be state-of-the-art, and for me personally, most importantly, there are great placement opportunities into internships.

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: As yet, I am unaware of meal plan/flex dollars as I have not yet begun classes.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: I live off-campus on the Lower East Side of Manhattan and have an easy commute to the Jay Street Metrotech stop of the F train. This brings me directly to the campus quickly.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: As I begin attending classes, I will probably discover places I did not know exist in the neighborhood. However, those establishments of which I know appear to be of the Starbucks or Au Bon Pain variety--acceptable, but not exceptional variety.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Again, as I am just recently accepted to the program, I can base my answers only on surface level observation. It seems the school is comprised of a very diverse cross-section of students, both from ethnic/racial basis and from the economic perspective. As for the LGBT community, I have had little opportunity to observe this, so any answer I give on this subject would be only my best guess.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: I am not eligible for FAFSFA, so I did not apply. Also, I am not likely to be approved for alternative loans. I have yet to specifically approach the Financial Aid Department regarding available scholarships. I will be doing this shortly.

5 College Junior

Facilities: My observations are based on my visits to campus as a candidate for acceptance into a Master's program. Obviously, I can only speak from a surface level, but it seems that facilities and tech support would be top notch.

5 College Junior

Facilities: What attracted me to Polytechnic School of Engineering at NYU was the breadth of curriculum available, apparent availability of state-of-the-art computer labs, and perhaps most importantly, assistance in placement into quite desirable internships, a mission critical goal for my studies.

3 College Junior

Diversity: Again, my source of information is quite limited. I am a newly-accepted student. From outside observation, it would seem to me that diversity, whether ethnic/racial, economic, political, religion, and/or sexual orientation is well accepted on the campus.

3 College Junior

Athletics: As I stated in answers to earlier questions, I am a newly enrolled student, so I would have absolutely no experience with the athletics of the school. From what I have observed as an outsider, it seems that attention to this area would be average or slightly above. The primary focus would be on academics, no doubt, as the school is a school of engineering.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I was quite favorably impressed by the review process for the Graduate program to which I have just been accepted two weeks ago. There was a great deal of attention paid to pinning down the details of my specific areas of strength, my current expertise and where I needed more work--after all, the reason for my applying to this program at NYU Polytechnic Institute of Engineering.

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: As yet, I have no experience of the campus strictness. I have just been enrolled and begin attending classes this September. I therefore have no means of evaluating this question.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I've had up's and downs but overall, I like the school atmosphere. I met great people and great dedicated professors that I probably would not have met elsewhere/

1 College Junior

Parking: Ok the school is in the city. It is impossible to find parking and when you do, it usually costs you a lot. Even meters cost about 3-4 dollars an hour!!
