If you get thrown in the

"Great Books" curriculum called GSP as an undecided major walk don't run away from NYU unless you love writing papers and reading boring material ad infinitum. Heavy workload. The Third Ave. North apt. resident hall for freshmen is extremely poorly maintained and no one cares when you have a problem like a major water leak wrecking all your clothes, etc. The study lounges are dirty and bare. The layout of apts. make it harder to make friends on your floor here. Everything you read about NYU being a heavy drug use school is totally correct. Some profs were anti Christian. If you are a religious conservative you will not make it here unless you are on a wellness floor, maybe not even then. NYU is vastly overrated and overpriced. Elite large research institutions cater to grad students and research so frosh get left in the lurch, except for helping to finance everybody else. No sports team, no team spirit, no quad. Student health center gives very mediocre care.

You would be much better off if you want the arts to live at home or off campus with a friend you bring to school and going to a state college in an honor's program. Only positive thing I can say is of course NYC is wonderful for Broadway fans and NYU has a lot of extra curricular groups. The Protestant ministry office isn't powerful enough to be a source of guidance/ unifying influence like the Jewish center, catholic center, or gay community.
