R_six ive just noticed how ecclectic your style is. What is your wardrobe like? No, I just work in Manhattan. Though I had very close friends who went, and in general, NYU students are easy to spot. From what I know, if you're looking for an intellectual community type atmosphere it isn't the place to go really. The draw of NYU is that you live in downtown manhattan and have basically everything the city has to offer (hence the proliferation of "OMG You are so Carrie Bradshaw!' girls). It is monstrously expensive, both in terms of cost of admission and lifestyle. You'll have to stop kopping julius for a while From your posts here I feel like you'd have a better time at a place with a more nerds and fewer hipsters. hmm, I guess I'll never find my niche! I love the city as I visit once in a while, thinking of going soon actually when it heats up. I just thought I'd fit in better at NYU. I already plan to move there maybe, depending on my grad plans.
