Polytechnic Institute of New York University Top Questions

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?


The worst thing about my school is that it is extremely expensive, and even if enough money is given for tuition the housing (on-campus and off) is just as expensive to the point where it is hard to be able to affoard it.


The worst thing I consider about my school is the location it is located. It's located in a very crowded place.


The school gives too much homework and projects; this basically leaves no time for extra caricular acitivities. Also there is no doubt that every professor is very knowledged, but most of them have a really bad accent and they don't know how to teach.


The responsiveness of the university you will be on hold for a hour at times


As a potential engineer, your social life can be lacking a little. Some professors may assign only one project, but that project needs a lot of work for it to be completed.


The library and cafeteria doesnt have enough room to seat students. The lab workers aren't very skilled in English, makes it hard to communicate with them. Need a separate place to do events so student can relax at the Lounge without getting kicked out of lounge every week. The schedule for test and finals sometime over laps and cause a lot of stress.


The worst thing about my school has to be the elevators. Being an Engineering school, one would expect the campus to be filled with breath-taking technology. But the first thing you come to notice when entering the school is that the elevators do not work. The doors do not open if you put any body part to try to open them once they are closing. Also being a small campus, everyone wants to take the same elevators every day, clogging up the main hall. And since most of the time they don’t work, people get late to class.


tuition fee...Not everyone can afford the fee.


The worst thing I consider about my school is its location which is at the center or midtown of the city. The surrounding urban area of my school sometimes gives me a feeling of anxiety, high-pace, and high-level-competition. Studying at this competitive school, sometimes it is very easy to get worried, anxious and competitive. At many times, when I feel tired and want to find a comfortable and silent place, such as a park, to relax, it is kind of disappointed that there is lack of this kind of green environment at this urban area.


hard classess becuase they either dont have english speaking teachers or very hard class


If you need help with something, the administration will give you the run around.
