New York University Reviews
That being said, the prices are pretty whack for a non-profit entity. Many admin are not willing to budge on pricing and you will be hurting if you don't get financial aid.
Final word: Research your program! The Social Work School often neglects its bachelor students, but prepares its masters students for therapy very well. Tandon is great for CompSci, but average for other engineering tracks. The the language programs are incredible, but be aware that many CAS programs are not as incredible as they would be elsewhere. (For example, PoliSci is good here, but it's even better at the less expensive George Mason University!)
