It's great for high school students who know they wish to obtain a degree in interior design. Like all schools, there are great professors and not so great professors. For the most part, NYSID does have a good staff of professors for the industry. The school does not make it easy for existing professionals to obtain a degree because of the lack of available time slots of classes. It does not offer online possibilities nor does it seem to be future focused on how to teach their students. They have a great reputation and most students who even apply to the school and have good grades are perfectionists to begin with and have a dedication to learning, passion for the industry and overall goal to exceed expectations. Their job opportunities are lacking and the workload is intense. The facilities are not suitable for the degree and they need to renovate. They also recently put a lot of money into their master's facility in which undergraduates are not even allowed to enter or utilize.

Every professor is somehow directly involved with the interior design, or architectural industry outside of the classroom. The majority are active working professionals in the field. You gain connections, and valuable insight just by being in the classroom. I am very grateful to have been able to learn from such knowledgable and creative people - each and every one of them has had something of great value to contribute to my education thus far, and I highly doubt that I will find myself disappointed in the future. The class sizes are small: usually between 10-15 people (aside from the lecture courses, which tend to be much larger), and so you really are able to get the personal attention from your professor that you may not be able to get in a larger school. I think NYSID is an amazing gateway to the interior design world in NYC, or otherwise - they send their students off well prepared. I'm very happy having chosen this school. :)

In addition to the above, the registration process was recently updated to online registration which is good, but is still not updated to other schools. The curriculum is good but also needs to be updated to the current industry and reality of industry outside of school. Budgets are not taught and although allowing students to not feel restricted with creativity, it would be beneficial to learn how to still be creative within a budget. Business techniques are not taught and should be an integral part of the curriculm.
