I have a friend who graduated this May from NYIT (Manhattan Campus) and all I can say is that she is very happy. She is a very hard worker("lived" in the studio), but that is nothing new. NYIT has lots of professors (Ivy L. graduates and lots of Europeans) who are either teaching in Cooper Union, or ones who are graduates of Cooper Union, therefore the school is a mix between Cooper Union and Harvard. If you are considering the school, you should take the tour of Manhattan Campus and Old Westbury campus. Old Westbury campus is beautiful and studios have the latest technology,and Manhattan campus is really shitty when it comes to work conditions. But, the work and competitons done by the students of Manhattan Campus has always been much much better and they always win. This is due to the professors who teach in Manhattan campus, and the advantage is that you are in the city (lectures, sites etc). It depends whether you are a transfer student, or you are planning on enrolling. The school will make you do Design Fundamentals I & II, and you will find yourself in a big class. They will be very harsh and demanding, but this is one of the means of "cleaning" the class. Lots of people drop out in their first 2 years, therefore do not be surprised if you find yourself not having a life in your first year. They will do anything to make you cry, but as you go along you will see that %70 of the first year students are gone. Last six months I spent in Manhattan campus helping my friend with thesis, and I can say that the school is very very good. There will be more men than women, but that should not scare you (When I graduated from Rice in Houston there were only 3 of us and 20 men) To cut the story short, you should consider NYIT and from what I heard it is 7th school in the US for Arch.
