    Absolutely yes. Looking at all of the posts about going back to school is making me incredibly nostalgic.

    Hi!

    I did. I took Math I, Literature, and Spanish with Listening but it was a really long time ago and I can’t remember my scores, sorry! I know that they weren’t astounding but they weren’t awful either.

    If you don’t leave the housing contract (like by moving off-campus) and pay/submit everything on time, you’re guaranteed housing for all four years, yes.

This blog really helped me get a feel & a perspective on NYU to the point where I applied. Now I've been accepted and I'm so happy! You don't know it, but you really did hold my hand through this college hunt process. I asked so many questions that you answered so kindly. Thank you so much for all you did for me, Kelly!

    I wanted to post this because you really made me smile, Anon, and I want to wish you the best of luck at NYU! I hope you enjoy every minute of it.

    I get these kinds of messages every so often and I really just wanted to say a quick thank you to everyone for sticking with me and keeping this blog afloat for so long. I am really just here to help as best as I can and if I can make one person happy, I feel like I’m doing a halfway decent job.

    Anonymous said: Hi there, I want to apply for Early Decision for NYU but when I went to a information session, they said to fill out the Fafsa to get financial aid. It doesn't make sense to apply for a Fafsa that comes out in January if the early decision deadline is like November 1. Any advice on what to do?

    You do have the fill out the FAFSA in order to get financial aid (as well as the CSS Profile for freshmen), but the form doesn’t become available until January 1st and you have until February 15th to fill it out. So you don’t have to do it right away, you’re correct.

    Hi!

    Housing for transfer students has really always been limited and not guaranteed, but I know that, because of the closing of Hayden, there are less housing options this year and, because of that, transfer students had very little housing available. What I don’t know is if that will be a perennial thing after this year when Hayden reopens.

Anonymous said: i was accepted into both nyu and the new school (eugene lang), and got a much better financial aid package from the new school. i still want to try and make some friends with nyu students because i've read much better/positive things about the social life there versus lang. do you have any advice on this?

    I’m pretty sure New School students have access to the NYU Library and vice versa, so you can use the library and meet NYU students there. Also, I know that there’s a New School dorm in between the NYU halls Founders and Third North on 12th St., so it’s really not like you won’t be in the same neighborhood (the rest of the dorms really aren’t too far either) as NYU students. For example, my freshman year, we had a monster snowstorm, which resulted in a snow day, and a nice snowball fight in the street between NYU and New School students. Really, if you just kind of hang around the general NYU “area,” you’re bound to meet NYU students. Also, NYU has public events like screenings, plays, and talks, so look a few up and run by if you’re interested. I know a bunch of people who have/had friends in the New School so it’s definitely not too hard to cross-mingle!

    Yup! I’m not sure how long it’s active for but I’m still getting emails on it right now. I’ll probably switch to a new email for this blog in the near future though!

I made a food map last year for my Arts Rep tour, and it was pretty popular. I’m giving another tour today (to my new group of freshmen!), so I thought it was about time to refresh the map.
There have been many additions (Dos Toros! Dorado! OddFellows!) and a few losses (I weep for thee, Japadog), and I think it’s a bit easier to read overall.
Enjoy, and let me know if I’m missing anything major!

    I’m pretty sure almost everyone applies for financial aid so no.

    Anonymous said: Hi! Thank you so much for having this blog, you are helping sooo many people. I see that you were LSP the firsts year, and majored in photo/journalism. Were you able to take photography while in LSP? Thanks!!

    I took my first photography class while I was abroad my sophomore year so I was still in LSP at that point. It was my last semester in LSP and I took classes in a few different schools while abroad.

    Also you are very welcome <3

  14. Anonymous said: Hello! I'm planning on applying to NYU this year, I love it! I am wondering about internal transfers, I understand that you have to apply for them and they must be approved, but can you transfer from two opposite schools, Gallatin to Tisch? Is that even possible? And if I really have no idea what I want to study should I just go in as LSP? Also if you are LSP can you take classes from other schools or are the options limited? My apologies if you have answered these questions or if they are dumb!

    You can apply for an internal transfer to any school from any school, yes. Acceptance is more competitive at some schools (like Stern, Tisch) and you sometimes have to submit more than just the application (like a portfolio or schedule an audition).

    If you don’t know what you want to study, you can look into LSP, sure, and you can also just apply undecided. If you’re in LSP, you can take some classes in other schools but it is limited. You have requirements you need to fulfill in order to transition out of LSP though, so you can’t take all of your classes outside of the school.

    You can find all of that information on the Law School’s website!
