Virtual Tours by Students
The following is an computer-generated summary of the video transcript.
Really? I didn't really know anyone who goes there, so I was like, trying to do all the research I can. If there's anything under those two categories that you don't see in this video that you want to know about, definitely comment and I will make sure to put that in a later video. So if you're like me, you like to prepare and what I did before I went to N y. U was look up every single thing that you could possibly know. That no one really tells you before you actually go. Today we're gonna be talking about all of the things that no one really tells you before you go to school, particularly in y you. This is really the case for any school, but and why you specifically Finals week is gonna be really rough. The way I got through it was I had a great group of friends, and we all went to and why you library together to sit down and study for like, seven hours, and I know that doesn't sound really fun, but it's it's fun, you know. So it was really fun to have that in a sense of unity and have all your friends they're studying with you. Er, when you have three exams coming up the next week or eight essays to write and all seems miserable, definitely try to keep a positive attitude if you're positive person and if you you know if you see the glass half full and if you're really optimistic you have a leg up on literally every single person in New York. I really sound like my life coach right now, but you don't always have to be miserable. Now I want to talk about professors, I think, and why you generally overall, has really good professors. Generally I had a really good experience of my professors, especially in some really hard classes. When you get to N Y u, someone will explain to how Albert works, and you'll know it's really not that hard to figure out. Picking classes is really hard, and no one really tells you about any deadlines. I'm on the email list, but some emails never really got out to me about how to pick classes and how to manage them and how to drop them. When the deadlines were so that was a really hard thing for me the summer before freshman year, because I had to figure it all out myself. All that really means is that once school starts during the drawback period, which is technically the 1st 2 weeks of class around there, I think there is a possibility of that glass opening up. I've heard of some advisers who don't really respond to emails until like a week later. They're just gonna be like they won't know how to help you. So you really have to go out there yourself and figure it out. While you overall is a really like you gotta figure it out. N y u has a lot of really helpful Resource is that will help you, my sweet mate. Is that what the Wasserman Center offers? And you'll also learn about this in your students seminar? I'm not even trying to sugarcoat anything and why you just have a lot of really good resource is, but you just have to know how to use them if that makes us so. You know, Tish, I don't know how any of those schools do their curriculum. If the specific class isn't required, it's under a required categories such as, you know, you have to do your liberal arts core. It's only like a 10 15 minute walk from campus, and I really liked everyone in my building. The on Lee to dorms that I think are labeled is like the worst freshman dorms, our Weinstein and Ruben Weinstein, because just the rooms are like really small. A lot of my friends made the mistake of getting twin size sheets, and they got to their room and they didn't know what to dio. What? I first thought there I'm gonna be really honest. When I first got there, our energy levels were so different, like she really loved to sleep. She really loved Thio, you know, sort of wind down so we didn't mash for, like, the 1st 2 weeks. Then once we recognize our differences and accepted that, you know, we're not gonna be best friends for life we really like became closer. She's honestly, like one of the coolest people I know. So something that your roommate might be doing that you think is really weird. Do you know what I mean? So just be kind and be compassionate. It is really hard for some people to make friends and want you. Because if you surround yourself with people who whose morals are going down the toilet, your morals will go down the toilet as well because there isn't really a campus at N y U when everyone makes their friend. So what I'm trying to say is, really pick your friend's wife. You know, to study or no, I go to Bob's will stay in my apartment to study. No, campus does not necessarily equate to know community.
