I swore that I wouldn't post in this thread, but then mahavir10 came along.
NYU is pretty good, I think. I graduated this last May. My classmates and I went all over for medical school - Drexel, UMiami, Harvard, Columbia, Duke, NYU, Mount Sinai, AECOM, on and on. The classes are good - I really don't think they're cutthroat-hard, but it's not a walk in Washington Square Park, either. But if you're willing to work and if you follow NYU Pre-professional Advising's advice, I'm sure you'll be a successful applicant.
