    NYU rejected you but you got accepted by Columbia?! That's amusing. What master did you apply to? Congratulations btw!!! I was hoping for a perhaps thick and purple envelope, however, my heart sank when I saw the thin, pale mail from NYU. It turned out that I got accepted and being told to send them money (deposit) ASAP, lol.

    Thanks for the suggestions I'll look into the places you mentioned. I have visited friends in nyc, who all happen to live in manhattan. I have more or less an idea of how "cozy" the apts tend to get and at what price. However I'll still look at all places available, like you said, to have a point of reference. Maybe this question sounds lame: The cost of living in manhattan should more than brooklyn right? Apart from rent, but in supplies ( ie groceries), eating out, etc.

    So true. NYC's public transportation gets you almost everywhere (when I was in Miami, I had to get a car). The down side of not owning a car is when going out at night, coming back home. I need to find a place where it is safe for me to walk on the streets pass 12. I wonder, how do new yorkers do it? haha. Taxi? I'll be broke before Thanksgiving.

    Nah, it is not impossible to live in nyc as a student. I have two good, long time highschool friends who went there for undergrad who did just fine. If they can do it... I know I can do it, possibly better! However, they stay home most of the time... I'm more outgoing so I will need to balance my $$ carefully. About housing, I will do apt sharing/roommates; I can't afford Chelsea, Greenwich or any of those areas near NYU. Brooklyn is where I plan to go on room-hunting. Queens I believe is too far, even in Sunnyside or Astoria. How my roommate/s will be is pretty unpredictable (and kind of scary for me). Oh and of course... trying to find a room with A WINDOW and a decent Closet at an affordable price. Haha. What about you?

    Is NYU just an expensive school?

    Hehe, I was just joking (although it is kind of true that I don't see much NYU postings here). I'm gonna go to there anyways in fall. However, I will still wait faithfully to daseinplushie's post.... lol

    It is just me or what? I barely see any NYU students here (or ppl that are attending for sure) lol. I'm getting paranoid

    Certainly, programs varies from department to department. I just wonder how bad could it really be? hehehe. If you don't mind the hassle... I would definally appreciate if you could ask your father for me 8) ; it's Master of Public Health.
  12. I'm foreign student and will be attending NYU in fall for a master, I recognize that the university is very costy and the living expenses in the city isn't cheap as well. A friend of my parents questioned them on why would they bother to let me go there. "NYU is famous, for being expensive... for charging a lot". From the tone and other comments, it sounded like NYU is not big deal of a school and is overrated. "NYU accepts a lot of people, so they can make money." Now I wonder... is NYU really that bad? Would it be a stupid move for me to study there? I mean... I would definally enjoy living in nyc and I love the curriculum of the program. But those comments came from a new yorker (btw, his son attended SUNY's law school) Any NYU student or better, grads here to answer me? Inside scoop? hehe...
  13. I emailed today and 10 mins after I got a reply. I got accepted! They wrote that my decision letter was sent march 19th. However, the program administrator was kind enough to attach a pdf version of the letter with the email. It doesn't mention any financial aid though.. I guess I didn't get it I always thought that I was so lucky to be debt free, I guess my luck just ran out.

    Am I the only creature here who applied for MPH this year? This altruism is killing me.
