NEW YORK UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF THE ARTS is in my subjective opinion as a union writer director producer who has had 30 million dollars approximately put into his work and has been a media professional now going on 28 years since the age of 18, is SOMEWHERE TO AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE as our most professional theater schools; the education is highly variable ranging from mediocre to poor; sexual and other forms of harrassment and mental abuse are rampant and it is a truly unhealthy place for young people; people with large names and psychiatric/criminal histories are often teaching; the kind of people you really wouldnt want your children exposed to; theater film media is a craft learned like shoe making you learn by apprenticing working your way up in a production company etc; most of the people teaching have little or no professional experience of any importance; the university actively discourages people from working professionally this in a business with a 95%+ unemployment rate; the school of the arts at NYU is perhaps the most prestigious institution of its kind; but like most performing arts schools in the country ( eg nyu yale mellon etc ) as professional trainging programs they are absolutely worthless at best and down right damaging at worst; one is better off getting a good liberal arts degree at a good city or state school and apprenticing oneself with a production company in the media field/ field of endeavor of ones choice; the quality of the coursework academically at the school of the arts is pure basket weaving.
commentI remember how this school showed up in Step 2. Chic film. Pity that the school always suffers from his students. Directors need hire case stude writer, to identify problem children.
