I got into NYU which has been my dream for the longest time, but I was accepted to the liberal studies core program. Is there a strong stigma against this program? Also I want to do journalism which requires a double major - would I be able to do this in the two years after lsp? Thanks!
the only ppl who have a strong stigma against lsp are the same people who deserve to be kicked repeatedly in the nutsack/other genitals. like really, these are the people who desperately cling to being “better” than lsp people because otherwise, they’d have nothing.
and yeah, it’s totally doable! in your first two semesters of lsp (your freshman year), you’ll have to take three lsp classes and then can take one non-lsp class per semester, meaning there’s room for 2 major-specific classes. and then as a sophomore, you only have to take 1 lsp class per semester, meaning the rest can be major-specific.
I just got accepted to NYU for the class of 2018! I was wondering if students hang out/ study at Washington square a lot? Like how much is it actually like a quad or the center of campus?
Students living closer to campus tend to spend more time there than do the students living in the dorms near Union Square (Founders, U Hall, Third North, etc). But it really isn’t the “center of campus,” because we don’t have a “campus.”
Something I’ll never stop being surprised to hear, I guess. Paying for a unlimited monthly metro just to get to your classes must be a bitch, but I guess it gets you more involved / active since you can practically do anything with one of those bad boys.
We used our unlimited metrocards to cook up some meth and sell it to school children! You really can do anything!
I don’t know if the Linguistics department or NYU had a policy change or what, but more and more of my course syllabi are mentioning resources for aid in the event of some interruption in your ability to attend classes and/or complete coursework, sometimes with express mention of depression or other mental illness. Professors are mentioning that mental health is utmost and that deadlines can be reasonably adjusted. This never happened my first year, and it’s a welcome development.
this is a very important thing for you all to remember!!!!! mental health should always come first!!!! there is still some good at nyu after all!!!!!!
Me and my partner in crime aka dhrish are planning to go to nyu for grad school but we gonna live like hobos probably bc that shit is expensive afff. HOW WILL WE MANAGE. we might have to sell our souls to the devil.
we used to have souls too, before we sold them for beer money and to pay for that shitty tattoo of a muppet we got drunkenly at 2 am on st. marks.
nyu kids have no reason to be so pressed about columbia when they have their own personal sushi chef in all of their dining halls
Yes, not only do we each have our own personal sushi chefs in all of our dining halls, but we also have personal masticators who chew up our food for us then spit it into our mouths like little mama birds to prevent us from choking.
What did you think, NYU was expensive for no reason? All that tuition money has to go somewhere.
