Major: Business - Management and Administration (This Major's Salary over time)
My major is Business and Political Economy at Stern; it is new this year. The class for this program is only about 30 people, and we are to spend 3 semesters abroad together and take the same classes throughout the four years at NYU. It is a great program because we all receive individual attention and are part of an incredibly close group of students.

Some issues which I faced were the materialism of the people at NYU and in the city in general, difficulty finding people that were similar to me and the extreme liberal-mindedness of the majority of people here.

By materialism of students and NYC residents I mean one's constant obsession with brands and fashionability of one's outfit. In the end, I realized that everyone simply obsesses about their own outfits and no one cares about yours. So if you feel like your wallet cannot afford Marc Jacobs, or that you like something that you cannot find in Vogue, wear it without hesitation.

The tremendous dilemma of finding people that were like me strikes 99.9% of newly arriving students at NYU. Initially, it seems like John Sexton's (the university president's) preaching about the importance of diversity only hurts you (because

I just don't connect with ANYBODY
). However, the would be much worse at a small college where everyone is the same EXCEPT FOR YOU. Then, you really are doomed. At NYU, there are oceans of student organizations. Go to some of their meetings. Join some. And, if you are in hesitation over whether or not to join a club, don't. Find something about which you are passionate.

If you decide to go to NYU, your key to success is to be independent in all respects. Believe that you can find happiness here if you search, and you will find it very soon.

questionHi, I was accepted into the BPE program for the entering freshman class of 2017 and I was just wondering what you thought of the program now that you're graduating? Was it extremely rigorous (especially in math-I never took calculus in high school so I am slightly nervous about the math requirements)? Do you feel the program was worth the price?
