New York University Reviews
The academics can be manageable if you just go to class and do your homework. I am also in the humanities (Gallatin). It can be reasonably challenging though in terms of how you apply yourself to the coursework and learning. I really like the variety of classes (although it can also be a challenge to enroll).
