Finding internships is tough (as expected), but probably no tougher than it should be. NYU's Wasserman Career Center helps students find job placements and internships while there are plenty of online resources to help as well.

There is a wide variety of classes offered in the departments of music and mathematics. The professors in the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences are also phenomenal, as they have been leading experts in their fields for several decades. I have had a fantastic time with my professors and with my courses in general.

I especially enjoy interacting with professors during office hours as they are very helpful and kind. I also have enjoyed meeting like-minded students through academic societies and clubs. Overall I have had an excellent time.
