I have a couple of questions for current NYU students...
 What is "Writing the Essay" and how difficult is it?
 I have heard so many nightmare stories about second year biology at NYU, how difficult would it be to maintain a 3.8+ GPA as a biology major. I'm pre-med and willing to study myself to death if i have to maintain my GPA.
 Does NYU have a "microbiology" major? Does anyone know how difficult this path would be?
** What are some courses i should AVOID that drop your GPA? Also, what are some courses that i can't avoid that are very difficult.
