How many students does it take to change a light bulb at NYU?

Two - one to get the light bulb, and one to go to the departmental advisor and see what the advisor thinks is best.

What says...

NYU may not be the best college for you if you are the kind of person who likes to slack off or if you want a bona fide American campus experience. New York can be a lonely and scary place for those who are not gregarious or determined enough to go out there and make something of it. But if you have a city-loving side, a genuine interest in knowledge and an appreciation of faculty and students who feel the same way, then NYU is a good place to consider.
