Facts & Statistics

Tips for Getting In
  • Be creative in your essay.
  • Be passionate and feel free to express your beliefs; NYU is open to progressive thinking.
  • Besides having good grades, the school values a sense of individuality and creativity.
Things I Wish I Knew Before Coming To School
  • Become really good friends with your adviser-they can make or break your schedule.
  • Bring comfortable, fashionable shoes. Walking a mile to class in an uncomfortable pair of heels is tough to do.
  • Don't just hang out with people you already knew from high school. Branch out.
  • Every student at NYU was "that kid" in high school with the incredible talent. Well, guess what? That's every other kid's story, too. It's taking your talents to a new level.
  • Get a meal plan with the biggest amount of Declining Dollars.
  • Join clubs and activities in order to meet people.
  • Know the weather before you leave your dorm.
  • Learn how to navigate the subway.
  • Leave your door open when you're home, to meet people on your floor.
  • Plan your study abroad early, and get your Visa application in even earlier.
  • Research professors before selecting a class.
  • Take advantage of the free events NYU offers.
  • There's a ton of free printing on campus, so you don't need your own printer, but plan to print early-lines can be long!
Interviews & Information Sessions
Information sessions are a great way to learn about NYU. The information session is an hour-long group meeting designed to answer your questions about admission requirements, research opportunities, internships, double majors, on-campus housing, application deadlines-anything you want to know about NYU. Group information sessions are typically available Monday through Friday. During the fall, NYU holds information sessions and tours on select weekends.
Campus Tours
Informative campus tours are held year-round, and visitors are most often taken to each of the various schools at the University and to other important locations such as the Elmer Bobst Library and the Helen and Martin Kimmel Center for University Life.
Overnight Visits
NYU does not organize overnight visits, due to the large volume of campus visitors each year (roughly 60,000 students), but if you have a friend or family member that attends the school, it is possible to stay overnight with them in their dorm.
