I had a great time here but that was back in the late 90s

I loved NYU. I was a pre-med student who transferred in 1999 and graduated 2001. I received two scholarships, multiple grants and loans. They had a Director's Series -- where a director would come in and talk about their movie before it was released (i.e. Wes Anderson and Bill Murray came in to talk about Rushmore), student film festivals, 24/7 editing when finals and midterms were looming. I'm friends with many of my classmates today and majority of us are working in the industry. Having the NYU name definitely helps, especially if an alumni in the industry discovers your commonality. It also prepared me for what the industry would be like -- half of them white guys bossing you around, the other half who'll help you out if you have something that's going to help them first. My classmates were similar (only four women in my transfer class) but I don't blame them, it's what was taught. I highly suggest joining the clubs, the work-study was easy (I worked on the 12th floor for the Television Studios for Koqui and the 3rd floor for Drama) and the internships were amazing. My professors cared about my work and were/are working in the industry. My advisor was an editor for Spike Lee and now does documentaries for HBO. Definitely good for the name, better for the friendships and relationships you create and maintain for the next 20 years.

Wes must have been making the rounds! Came to speak to us about Rushmore at BU. 🤣(Late 90s as well)
There was a student who told Bill Murray that he would like his money back....because Bill Murray promised this student, in a commercial, he would like 'The Man Who Knew Too Little' and this student didn't like it. Bill Murray gestured for the student to come up (we all thought dude was in trouble) and gave him a 20 and said "Now you can watch Rushmore twice" (When movie tickets were 7 bucks a ticket).
