Not worthy but fascinating
Tips: NYU gives out scholarships if you have a good UG GPA. Personally, the transition worked out for me, talking about cultural shifts I would say that ain't big of an issue. Overall I'd say I am more than satisfied with my decision to pursue a masters not exclusively academic but decent.
Likes (Public transportation): New York has the best public transport. The subway which functions round the clock, and public buses as well are very well connected and easily navigable. Connectivity to surrounding cities is good as well you could reach Jersey in 10 minutes. The costs as well don't cut that deep into the pocket

How to live in US as an International MS Student
Tips: NYC is the world capital, so the transition from India was pretty smooth. You get all the food options that you would get in India. The college offers merit-based scholarships, so ensure that your GPA doesn't fall off. The college offers a lot of networking opportunities. Make use of that and build a strong network, as that is what helps the most.
Likes (Part time work): On-campus employment opportunities are a great way to make money while still being in school. The pay is hourly. You can work up to 20 hours per week as a full-time student. The workload is manageable along with the academics. There are plenty of on-campus options which you can find on the college job board. Reach out to professors for those roles as well.
Dislikes (Safety): A lot of things can happen in NYC and you have to ensure to be safe at all times. Keep track of the surroundings. Apart from campus security, colleges organise sessions to keep international students informed about the various facilities along with common safety measures, which students can use to ensure their safety.

Living is a bit costly but it will be worth it.
Tips: Everything will be costly, and it's super easy to go beyond your budget. One of the best cities to live in, especially if you are used to being around a lot of people. Public transportation is the best in the country. On-campus jobs pay $29 per hour, which is excellent.
Likes (Student Life): It's New York City. Living in and around a city that many have only seen in movies. Probably every second corner is featured in one of the famous movies. There's a great nightlife if you want it, but it will cost you a limb. An immense number of on-campus clubs and communities are available.
Dislikes (Internships): Currently, internship opportunities are limited. As expected, career fairs are not very beneficial. The career center has made efforts to assist, but ultimately, it is the student's responsibility to secure an internship, and currently, the global market is unfavorable.
