    NYU IS EXPENSIVE. The tuition's expensive, the room & board are expensive, the cost of living is basically astronomical, but is it worth it! The answer for me is unequivocally YES. If you are passionate about what your learning, there is no other place to be, every day I'm learning and growing and my possibilities are endless. Do I wish tuition was less? Yes. Do I wish financial aid was better? YES YES YES YES YES x infinity! But would I rather be somewhere else? Absolutely not.

    Probably not worth the ridiculously high tuition. If you can manage to pay it, even if it's tough, definitely make the effort.

    To be honest, if you're in a liberal arts course, I wouldn't recommend coming here unless you can definitely afford it. We can afford it, but I wouldn't be here if I were taking something like liberal arts. Tisch is one of the top performance arts schools, so it's worth it just because all the people around you are going places. Stern is one of the top business schools around the country. I'm in CAS, which isn't one of the top schools, but it's also in the middle, and the major I'm in will get me somewhere. But honestly, don't take out debt to do liberal arts at NYU. You're just asking for a lifetime of stress later on.

    Leaving in Shanghai is much cheaper then any other place in the states. You can live here and spend only $3 a day. Even if you eat at expensive restaurants and go out every weekend, you do mot need more than $10 a day.
