Where do I send scholarship negotiation letter for NYU?

Postby democrattotheend » Fri Mar 26, 2010 4:08 pm

I want to ask NYU to match/consider UVA's offer. I have my letter written but am not sure where to send it. The general admissions e-mail address I have is jd-admissions@exchange.law.nyu.edu, and the financial aid e-mail I have is law.finaid@nyu.edu. Should I send it to one or both of those e-mail addresses, or somewhere else? Or should I mail it instead?

If it's merit scholarships, you should send it to the admissions office. If it's financial need stuff, then you hit up financial aid. good luck!

You can also send an email to the admissions office asking to whom you should direct a question concerning merit-aid.

Here's what I was told when I e-mailed the Director of Student Financial Services:

Thanks for the info. I have not yet gotten my financial aid info, so I guess I'll probably have to wait until I do and then appeal. I didn't have the UVA scholarship then, so I couldn't mention it when I applied. Who knows if it will count for anything anyway?

This isn't an NYU specific response, but I thought I would add to the thread. I sent scholarship negotiation letters to three schools last year. I received responses from all three. One shot me down. Two of them actually increased my scholarship. To decide who to send the letters to I went back through emails (Application Complete/Acceptance/Invitation to Accepted Students Day) I had received from the admissions office. I picked an email that was from a "real" email address (not generic admissions@lawschoolname.edu) and I sent the letter. In one case, the person responded that they had forwarded my email to the Dean of Admissions. In two other cases the associate Dean of Admissions (who I had sent the letter to) responded directly. When I picked the "wrong" person, he let me know and politely forwarded it to the correct person. If you are a strong enough candidate to be negotiating aid, the admissions staff members are generally nice and helpful. Don't stress over little things like exactly who the letter should be sent to.
