Major: Political Science (This Major's Salary over time)
Its funny to hear all these little kids complain about NYU, I graduated in 2000 from CAS, came in as a transfer student, and it was the single best thing that ever happened to me. I agree that its not the easiest place to meet people, but please, you had to realize this was not your average run of the mill college before you came. In fact, most of the friends I made at NYU were international students. I remember going out for dinner for a friend's birthday (even transfers can make friends if they try… maybe all the people who complain are just boring)… and out of 20 odd NYU students at the dinner, I was the only American at the table. Tell me what school can give you that kind of exposure. One of the people who posted actually knocked my major, politics, which I don't fully understand. Yeah, you only need 8 classes, but the classes I took were absolutely incredible. Eastern Europe, Western Europe, Latin America, The Middle East, Africa, and Asia… it covered everything. Politics (Political Science, i still don't quite understand what the difference, if any, is…) was the best major I could have chosen… its a brilliant hybrid of history, government, economics, and sociology. Granted its not Finance, but frankly the courses I despised the most were Macro and Micro economics… which everyone has to take.

Anyhow, I was hired 2 months before i graduated and was employed for the most part until i started law school this past year. My current classmates for the most part are from Columbia, Cornell, U Penn, Brown, Georgetown, Michigan… and all the little liberal arts schools that ship you off into the boonies of some New England State for four years of isolation and boredom. NYU gets respect from everyone i've encountered… that was exactly what I wanted, and its exactly what I got. Not to mention a massive injection of reality being dropped into the middle of the most intense city in the world.

LOL. NYU doesn't get respect. They're being nice you sap. I wonder what jobs you applied to.
