NYU
Where child actors go, besides the Ivies, because:

1) They can't hack it at any other school
2) Just want to say they went to college in NYC for 2-3 years
3) Did poor research on other universities

and/or

4) Just luv NYC and most likely have no clue that NYC consists of 5 boroughs.
NYU - Tisch is overrated for acting. You want to polish your craft? Go to Julliard. You want rigorous academics? Go to the University of Chicago or Washington University-St. Louis.

NYU
New York University- A massively overrated school that everyone wants to go to. Most of these kids come from suburbs and don't know any other universities in NYC.

Rather than doing some research on other great schools in the area (i.e. Fordham University, Columbia University) they all want to go to NYU because they "love New York".

Also, they probably know nothing about NYC, and believe that Manhattan is NYC, completely forgetting that there are 4 OTHER BOROUGHS.
Dumbass: "omgz I'm gunna apply to NYU. I luv new yorx!!1!1"

well-read intellectual at Columbia: "oh nice...so how do you like the village?"

dumbass: "omgz i luv new yorx bcuz it's awsumz...wutz the village?" *Takes C train to Brooklyn*

nyu
A place where kids from the northeast go when they get rejected from Columbia. They then tend to resign themselves to their fate and subsequently try to convince themselves and anyone else stupid enough to listen that its actually as good if not better than Columbia or anywhere else.
Student 1: where do you go to school?
Student 2: Columbia.
Student 1: Really, I go to NYU, we just got ranked in the top ten in US News and World Report's Best Colleges!!! Pretty good, huh??
Student 2: Yeah, I guess.....
Student 1: You think I can get into Columbia grad school?

A school for people who want to pay as much tuition as Columbia requires, but don't have the brains to get in.
NYU is New York City's second best school.
