The #1 Dream School in the nation. NYU is a prestigious institution that receives more applications (usually upwards of 33,000) than any other private university in the country. Home to the best dorms in the nation, it's also notorious for its $45,000 pricetag, though a good portion of the student body is composed of celebrity children and millionaires.
You know you go to NYU when you're complaining about living in the #1 dorm in the country.

A school providing its students with some of the most amazing opportunities in one of the world's greatests citys. Critics would be quick to examine themselves first before decrying the university for its shortcomings.
Hey look at me, I went to NYU and employment wasn't handed to me on a silver platter after I graduated, it must be the school's fault.

Hey look, I worked hard for four years in the media capital of the world, now I'm on an awesome career track. Yay for me.

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.
