Major: Undecided (This Major's Salary over time)
I got into NYU GSP and had no idea what it was. Apparently its the same thing as getting into NYU but you take all your core classes before you choose a major, which is pretty helpful if you're undecided. The Great Books Curriculum is amazing - so interconnected and well planned that its nearly impossible to improve. The no campus is kindof bad, but the city becomes your playground. Very expensive to go to but very worth it. Advice: Great school, great people, great teachers, all if you happen to be placed with them. A small minority of arrogant people and bad teachers…get away from them and join the very friendly and open majority!
questionLike yourself, I happened to get into the NYU GSP program. ( i'll be in the graduating class of 2012). I was just wondering what you thought of the program, anything you liked or didn't like, and if it was worth it. I would really like to go, but my parents are still a bit skeptical about the quality of a two year "general studies" curriculum. Personally, i love small classes analytical thinking and discussion are my forte, and i'm used to reading insane amounts, and i actually enjoy it, odd as it sounds. My parents aren't ready to blow a ton of money on something their not sure about, so I was hoping you could help me out by giving me a first hand, students perspective. thanks so much! -nicole
