I am a recent transfer student into NYU (Beginning this fall) and I've had quite enough of the NYU complaints. New York University suffers from being one of the nations most envied university's. In other words, there are quite a bit of NYU rejects walking around who are know angry that NYU is quickly becoming known as one of the "New Ivies" ( As affirmed by the recent WALL STREET Journal Article which named NYU, Georgetown, Duke, Northwestern and Vassar as the

" New Ivy League" for its outstanding overal academic excellence. If NYU is so dam bad (according to some of the responses I have read) then why is that 30,000 applicants apply to the school each year for about 4,000 open spots. Do you mean to tell me that EVERYONE is only applying because of it's city location?? Ofcourse not. NYU is obviously one of the top 30 schools in the country. Spike Lee, JFK JR., Alec Baldwin, Amy Heckerling, Neil Diamond, and soooo many others are all NYU grads. I could go on forever, but I won't. I guess the question- or comment rather- that I would like to end on is: Even after graduating more famous alum then any other school in the country, offering more opportunities to its undergrads than any other school, and having more than 11 programs ranked in the TOP THREE in the US, according to US News & World Report…Why do we all love to hate on NYU???
