Yeshiva University

New York, NYwww.yu.edu
Named after a Hebrew word that describes a school dedicated to the study of Judaism, Yeshiva University has four campuses throughout the bustling New York City area. While multiple disciplines can interact, two of the top majors are business and biology, along with religious studies. In fact, Yeshiva University has become known as a training ground for future doctors, with a medical school that teaches about 1,000 students. YU is also known for its stand-out ability to combine secular and religious courses. Yeshiva has a fairly open admissions policy and is one of the few universities that will admit students who have not completed high school. It accepts applications from high school juniors with strong records. As a private college in New York, it comes with fairly high costs. But the university offers various scholarships and some full-ride scholarships for students admitted to schools like the Albert Einstein School of Medicine. Yeshiva's campus also has one of the nation's only fully kosher campus cafeterias, which serves everything from sushi to lasagna to shlishkes (potato dumplings.) That's not mention all the diverse cuisine of New York at students' fingertips.
