Columbia vs. NYU: Thoughts?
« on: October 25, 2008, 05:00:28 PM »
I plan on applying Early Decision to one of these schools, and I have a few questions about their academic climate and opportunities. I would appreciate it if any current or recent NYU or Columbia students would PM or email me, so I could ask a few questions. Thanks!

Don't apply early decision to either of those schools with your numbers. Even if you have an intensely compelling need to stay in New York and won't consider other regions, you will certainly get into both schools regular decision, and might get some merit aid from either or both.

I agree with Goalie, although i'm happy to answer questions about CLS if you want to send me a PM.

I haven't been on LSD since school started, kinda weird to be on the opposite end.  Anyway I'm a current NYU student and would be available to answer any questions you have.
