I may give it a shot. It doesn't seem like NU has a ton of money to give out for next year, though.

Will you go to NYU if NU doesn't up it?

We are writing to inform you that we have allocated and exhausted all available scholarship and grant funding for this year. Scholarships and financial aid is a tremendously difficult matter. Every year, we have many more deserving students than we have funds available and this year is no exception. I am sorry to say that we will be unable to provide you with any scholarship/grant funding.

New Rule: Scholarship people always buy the first round.

I'm gonna miss the elitism from UG of being on a bigger scholarship than everyone around me.

Not for sure, but probably.

With COL, the difference would probably be about $40,000 assuming I get the same level summer associate job my 2L year from either school. I think NYU is probably worth the difference.

Yeah but paying sticker is like street cred for how tough you are, like the people who live in bad neighborhoods before they gentrify, or combat veterans.

Not yet. Leaning towards it for the moment. Giving myself until Monday to make my final decision.
