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.
