Overpriced school that isn't known at all out of the Northeast. Students are incredibly homogenous for a school in the Bronx and party scene is restricted to about three bars. Go elsewhere.

If you want an ivy-league level education and didn't get into Harvard, go to Fordham. My time here was amazing. The campus is incredible - the largest green campus in NYC and the option to take classes on the Lincoln Center campus if you want the more bustling city vibe (Rose Hill is super chill - an oasis in the urban jungle). The teachers are amazing and super professional and the atmosphere is fantastic. This school is so underrated it's ridiculous.
