Does anyone know ANYTHING about NYU's "Law, Economics..."

..."Law, Economics, and Politics Scholars Program."

Such things as, the size of the program, graduates of the program, coursework, etc.

The website has plenty of info on the courses and professors. Like a lot of NYU's similar programs, it's more of a focused interdisciplinary thing--like a set of electives--than some kind of special program. For all of NYU's specialized programs like this, you should be interested in NYU and Law and Economics separately and independently before you use it to make any real decision to attend the school. They have similar centers and programs for almost all areas of the law. I'm personally looking at the Academic Careers focus and Law and Philosophy, for example, but other than a couple of powwows each semester and maybe some advising, I doubt I'll even remember I'm a part of them when I'm in the middle of everything.

That said, the law school has a pretty active partnership with Stern, the business school that almost has as much prestige as the law school. And doing a once over on the program's details shows that the partnership is showcased within it.

Ya that site has lots of good information, but I'm more interested in who is admitted. I found one admit on lsn who had a 4.33 gpa. I am curious as to what the profile of an admit is like and if there is anyone out there in the program willing to answer questions or share their experience.

I wrote the additional essay for it last year was told that it didn't really matter and that it wasn't exactly a named scholarship with application like RTK. I got into NYU but didn't get it, but my LSAT was quite a bit below median so that probably had a lot to do with it.

I have no idea how they determine who gets the scholly.

There's gotta be someone, who was admitted or knows someone who was.

Like the advisors to the program? Am I really the only person who enjoys emailing people I don't know about information I need?
