Another Round 1 here. Thank god for the slightly later deadline!

I'm an International applicant and I actually visited the STERN campus last year (I figured I'd be too far away during the admit season) and met some extremely helpful folks. Would the adcom mind if I talked about conversations I had with students over 8 months ago?


Hey Deepauk - I think they will still appreciate it. Especially if it is people who do the tours, as they are very familiar with them and can perfectly understand why you would visit in the Spring and apply in the Fall. The admissions office is pretty tight knit, so they remember the ten or so students they work with for a year long after.

If it was 1st years you met, that works well too. But any student interaction shows an effort.

I actually visited last fall, but as you said the people who conducted the tours and met with us were all first years, so I am sure the committee will recognize them. Thanks 3underscore!

Do Stern students live close by the univ? I looked at the on-campus housing and the rents appear too costly compared to what I'm paying now.


Class2012 - sadly, this can only be approached by saying "welcome to NYC rent". I think that the school dorm building is actually pretty reasonably priced, given that - in essence - it is a free utility and broadband doorman building with gym. The rooms are small, and personally I chose to go private.

The Stuy Town things are overpriced IMHO, but that is the property company that owns the buildings fault, not NYU's.

I recommend living near to school as it makes life easier, but living a short subway away is pretty common and hardly disruptive to life on campus. Living in the dorm does make a lot of friends easily though.


How much is the on-campus housing and how much did you save by not choosing the University housing? If I'm accepted (fingers crossed) I would think living in the dorms would be worth the convenience especially given how much time I would spend on campus anyways. Thanks for all the great feedback!

A Palladium single works out to around $1680 a month - a nice, but crowded gym is located downstairs and all utilities are included. The single is probably 250-270 sq. ft, however. It makes good sense if you're planning to intern outside of New York because they offer leases in terms of 4.5 months each, plus the summer. Besides, you don't have to buy any furniture. The drawbacks are that the rooms are tiny, it feels a little too much like college, and the building is swarming with undergrads (yes, that is a bad thing!). Moreover, the Palladium isn't exactly *on* campus. It's close by, but make sure your expectations are reasonable.

The Stuy-Town apartments work out to $4200 a month (unless I'm horribly mistaken and the semester charge is actually the rate for a full-year lease) but you can share the apartment with a spouse/roommate. A terrible, terrible deal in this market.

Most students I've met so far who've found housing on their own are paying between $1100 to $3400 a month. Yes, we actually do talk about how much rent everyone is paying. :)

Any idea where the average would fall? $1500-1800?

you could pay somewhere around $1250 for a pretty decent share around the NYU area I think. To live alone is going to be probably around $1800 for a tiny, tiny, tiny studio.

Man! And I thought California was expensive! It is NY (and Manhattan) I suppose.

Funny. I have a 1 bed for less than MMTrader's estimate for a tiny studio. Rents in NYC get blown out of all proportion, as you can spend $6000/month on a studio, and $2000 on a two bed.


I haven't been in the rental market in a while, I guess things came down more than I would have expected. What neighborhood do you live in?

count me in for NYU this cycle as well. from reading posts on this thread, i think if i get in, i'll have to find a place in the area. i'm from NJ (just about a 25-30 min trip via bus + train door to door), but it seems i'd be better served living in the area. good luck to everyone else applying
