^I dunno about his resume but he's definately on a track to write Op-Ed pieces for newspapers, and work for Jon Stewart, at the same time.

I have a good idea of what his student loan balances are. NYU runs about $63k per yr nowadays.

Nope, per year. Our daughter got accepted there. She didn't attend. Neither one of us thought it was worth the $$. She's at UBC for about $14k per year. NYU and UBC are ranked close to each other in quality. UBC may have even been slightly better in some rankings (for whatever those rankings mean).

NYU Class of '79 & '81

As an NYU Grad (School of the Arts BFA/MFA) I can appreciate the kid who wrote this...

At my BFA graduation, the Dean of the School said the following...
" since the rest of the University has been told to go out and fix all the problems in the world, my advice to you guys is to go out and screw things up so the rest of the graduates have something to do!"


I took his advice to heart...

BTW my 4 year BFA and 2 year MFA cost me a grand total of $2500...my Dad was a Professor there for 40 years and retired as Professor Emeritus of the Kanbar Program/Tisch School of the Arts
