I want to go to NYU but it cost too much and I'm trying to choose a college in New York, I don't know what to do because I don't have a full plan?

My mine have been set on NYU but since it cost so much and I want to live on campus I don't know what to do. I wanted to get a Track scholarship to a good college, because I'm in track and I don't know how people get recruited. #track #college #nyu #hardwork


Shanell... y You ask a lot of great questions you wanna first place is to start is if the culture ar nyu is a fit for you. Sites lik e review. Com and usnews.com can give you an overview as well as provide info on other schools in new york that may be a better fit for you. But to pay for this and any school, make sure you discuss with the school about financial aid but you can be proactive by going to sites like fastweb.com to find scholarships you may be a fit for.

Hi! Perhaps you could look into more sports heavy schools such as Syracuse University, or Colgate. I went to SU and I know they have a very good track program for both males and females. Perhaps look into those schools and reach out to their respective coaches and email them! I live in NYC now which is where NYU is and often city life can be overwhelming and that is coming form a 24 year old who moved there when she was 22. I could only imagine being 18 in a big city and how scary it could be if you aren't used to it. Perhaps check out the schools I mentioned as well as the SUNY schools since they are a more affordable option since they are state schools but still can provide a great academic and sports experience. They are also less overwhelming campus wise.

Olivia recommends the following next steps:

Email college track coaches
Research schools as a whole

Yes, NYU can be expensive but when you are accepted to NYU or any school for that matter, the college sends you a financial aid package, which details what scholarships you have obtained, what grants (such as the Federal Pell), what awards (such as the TAP). From there, you can take out loans.


For me, the school gave me a partial academic scholarship and financial aid. Additionally, I applied to outside scholarships including one through my mother's union. I also commuted from home though for most of college to alleviate the costs and brought textbooks used and worked throughout college.
