    If you're planning on studying abroad and want a liberal studies education, apply for the CORE program. You could live in London, Paris, Florence, or New York City and still have the same education. Make sure you know which specific school you want to be in! You'll have to transfer if you don't want to be in the school you apply/are accepted to.

    -Make sure that if you don't have the best financial standing, start saving money now, even if you're in middle school -Don't come here if you cannot handle a challenge, the academics are hard -Connections are very important in NYC, use them

    THREE THINGS. One. Be open to any and everything and anything. You never know what to expect when you wake up in the morning wether a Professor challenges you to something exciting and new or you bump into a celebrity on the corner of 3rd and 14th, be ready to live with an exciting new possibility around every corner. Don't judge before you try, just keep an open mind, and you can do anything here. Two. Never say no! Never ever! Try every new food, go to every play, museum, gallery, or whatever you are offered! DO NOT PASS UP AN OPPORTUNITY! You never know what will inspire you. Three. Have fun! Yes its a huge work load, but you're in the city of dreams. Go out there. LIVE. It's part of your education, possibly even the most valuable part.

    Don't discount it. Seriously. I wasn't very enthusiastic before I came to NYU, even though I had accepted a few months ago. I wasn't even enthusiastic in August, the few weeks before I came to New York. I was terrified and starting to wonder if I'd made the right decision for me. That all changed the first week. I made friends, I met super interesting and creative people, I explored the city, and I was energized. There's nothing like being in New York City with amazing people in your college years. You have the whole world ahead of you, and the city isn't as scary as it seems (coming from someone whose hometown has 8000 people).
