NYU vs GULC (full scholarship)

Postby moshei24 » Wed Jul 03, 2013 3:34 pm

My new situation. I got into NYU and currently have 30k at GULC. Clearly, NYU is the better choice. However, I've been talking with GULC, and they said I could request more and they'd talk it over with the committee. Do you guys think a full is enough to go there. Would I need a stipend as well?

Please comment with your take on this.

Thanks!

If GULC gives you full scholarship, and NYU gives you nothing, I'd pick GULC.

Edit: My life is in NYC and out of NYU, I will easily get a job paying 35-40k the Summer after my second year.

Answer as many of these as you can"

The schools you are considering
-The total Cost of Attendance (COA) of each. COA = cost of tuition + fees + books + cost of living (COL) + accumulated interest - scholarships. Here is a helpful calculator.
-How you will be financing your COA, i.e. loans, family, or savings
-Where you are from and where you want to work, and other places where you have significant ties (if any)
-Your general career goals
-Your LSAT/GPA numbers
-How many times you have taken the LSAT

But, from the info provided, I think it would be crazy to forgo a full scholarship at Georgetown. For all of the hate it gets on here, it's still a T14, and many of its cons are negated by not having to pay tuition. That's $200,000 of real money.

Full tuition would be a total of about 155k over three years.

Oh shit, it's the "I can't go to Duke because it would be hell to drive five miles to a kosher grocery store" guy. What is this, your fifth choosing thread or something?

You won't listen to rational answers, so stop soliciting them.

Living expenses would be double in GULC.
Parents would cover living in NYC, and only half in GULC. Grandparents will likely give me 5k/yr. Girlfriend lives in NYC. I want to practice in NYC. Food will be cheaper for me in NYC. Travel will be less if I live in NYC. I am leaning toward NYU.

You have to take into account living expenses and interest capitalization. Use this:

I'm looking for advice, not for people to tell me what to do.

I would also practically be guaranteed a BigLaw job if I go to NYU.

90k at GULC vs sticker at NYU for someone wanting DC or PI should take GULC

It's pretty clear you want to go to NYU. So go to NYU. It seems pretty ridiculous to me to give up a full scholarship at a T14, but it's your choice.

This is theoretical. They would have to agree on it.

A large portion of wanting to choice NYU is wanting to stay in NYC.

Ehhhhhhhhhh i mean probably. But I wouldn't completely bank on BigLaw being a sure thing...and NYC BigLaw has a lot of turnover. There's still a lot of room for things to go wrong even if you get BigLaw.

Voted without looking at who OP was. Now, I want to withdraw my vote and get back the time I wasted reading this thread and all of OP's other crappy threads.

OP is perhaps the best Jewtroll in the history of the Internet.

I'm going to post this ITT a) for any posters that have missed this guy's saga and b) because I enjoyed it so damn much.

OP wrote:Dear [Admissions Officer],

I hope all is well.

Exactly four weeks ago I received an email from [Law School] informing me that they were unable to act on my application, and that I was put on hold. (Before I continue, I want to apologize if anything I write sounds in any way rude, as it is not my intention.) That email didn't really make sense to me given my numbers and given the fact that I'm a [University] alumnus who was very involved in leadership programs and groups while in their undergraduate program. After speaking to [University Representatives] (I tried to speak to [Law School representatives] to no avail), I found out that [Law School] had run out of scholarship money, and for that reason put me on hold. I was also told that I could be admitted and attend [Law School] without scholarship money, if I so desired. As you might understand, that would not be an intelligent decision on my part.

This whole series of events really tainted the [University] name for me. Being put on hold really felt like a slap in the face, especially after I had waited an extremely long period time to hear back from [Law School]. Even given all of these events, I would still consider attending [Law School]. At this point, I have placed deposits at [School A] and [School B] , two schools that have offered me generous scholarships. [School A] : $25K a year, and [School B]: $45K a year. If [Law School] is in the position to make me an offer this week, I would be happy to consider it, and hopefully be able to continue my stay under the [University] umbrella.

If you would like to discuss any of this over the phone, I would be happy to do so.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Sincerely,
[0L]

Also OP, literally everyone on this site despises/ridicules you. Dont go to nyu because then theres a chance ill run into you when Im down in the village. And that sounds unpleasant.
