It is exciting that someone at the National Review deems NYU "one of the United States’ best universities." Less flattering is the portrait given of the university, in the very same sentence. Reference is made to "the hipsters paying $50k a year to live in the Village, explore [themselves], and cull a degree stamped with the name of NYU." How does Travis Kavulla reconcile the two? Is he using "best" as a euphemism for "most expensive"? If so, boo.
