Congratulations! I think if it isn't safe, NYU and other schools will continue the virtual route until it is safe. If this truly is your dream school and you want to attend, then don't let a temporary hiccup impact a decision that will impact you for the rest of your professional life. You have to think long term as an Alum and what the school can offer in terms of networking and activities both as a student and as a graduate. I also have an MBA and was given similar advice when I was in your shoes. I have no regrets about the school I chose. Good luck!
I think MANY colleges will not be having on campus activities (dorms, classes, etc) in the fall. Whether they will attempt a fall semester on line vs plan to push freshmen off until Spring has yet to be seen.I'm not sure I'd send my 18 year old to ANY college campus yet..However - have you had any contact since your acceptance letter? Try contacting NYU to see if they have any insight yet. (My guess is they don't, however.)
First off, congrats! I was also accepted to a graduate program at NYU for the fall. I've chosen to defer because I much prefer in-person classes, and I doubt internships and other experiential learning will happen. NYU also comes at a very high price tag, and for me, I'd rather wait a year. For what it's worth, a lot of current NYU students, both undergraduate and graduate, are very upset with the administration for not giving partial refunds for this semester, when internships, housing, etc. are cancelled.
