    Because it is an expensive school, start applying for scholarships even before you get accepted. Once you're here, take advantage of the Wasserman Career center. Many New York companies seek out recent New York University graduates. The center also has an extensive database of internships. Watch for events, even those being hosted by other departments, because the caliber of the roundtable/lecture culture at NYU is highly coveted! Take advantage of the city as well: your id gets you into art museums and cuts the cost of tickets (whether you're going to the opera or a movie). Most of all, take a break, take care of yourself. The program is intense, and the city is intense... schedule in some days of peace!

    Be prepared to feel a little overwhelmed in such a gargantuan city, but also prepare yourself to experience just about a bit of everything. Be ready to work hard, and play hard.

    When writing your essays, PLEASE don't make your entire essay about how you want to come to NYU because it's in New York. The admissions people know this and are tired of hearing about it. You're going to be forced to mature a lot faster here. You don't have a campus which is tucked away from the rest of the world. You're going to be in NYC and you're going to have to deal with NYC, so be ready. NYU is expensive. Educate yourself about the costs and financial aid. Also be ready to take loans and make sacrifices. It's a harsh reality, but it's better to come prepared. NYU is truly an amazing place. I don't regret coming here. This is truly a university for the ambitious. If you're ready to be pushed and to push yourself in whatever field you're studying, then definitely apply here.
