Thanks very much for this. I already did FAFSA & Need Access and added NYU before I'd gotten my decision, so I guess I'm good for now. I'll be patient for a day or two on the ASW front.

Bleh, waiting for merit aid information is turning to be just as nerve-wracking as waiting for acceptance. So much waiting.

Just as a heads-up for those of you in the running who may be making travel plans: there's no formal interview, but finalists need to go to the March ASW (with special programming on Wednesday). There's a phone interview option if you can't make the ASW, but they are providing up to $300 for transportation expenses...

Good luck!


That's great to know! I'd be flying in from overseas so this is much, much appreciated!

Hey guys checking in got accepted yesterday!

Probably a stupid question but all you need to do to be considered for merit aid is to submit the FAFSA and Need Access forms right?

Got an award of 75k (90 if PI). I have no leverage to negotiate up at the moment, so I'm going to sit tight until Chicago sends me something. I really need the full 90.

That's my plan if I don't get any scholarship $$. I really want NYC big law so I figure its a calculated risk but its one I'm willing to take. I think it all depends on what kind of career you want and where you want be.

I really want biglaw anywhere, full stop. I figure NYU (or up) will give you a good shot in any market, and especially in the large NYC market. Eh. Still bummed, though.

Yup. In fact, they direct you to your award letter either way, in order to prolong your hope.

Haven't heard anything.

For other RTK and named scholly applicants, if we haven't received financial aid information, is it considered a sign that we're still in the running for the scholarship? Or has nobody heard back one way or the other? (apologies for the neuroticism, but it helps take the edge off the suspense to see what other folks have heard/hypothesized about this).

No apology necessary, yup I'm taking that as a sign too. We've heard from a couple of 1Ls that hearing about financial aid at this point meant that you were not being considered as a finalist for a named scholarship. So, conversely, not hearing, even when a lot of others who submitted need access after you have heard, could mean that you're still being considered, or at least that they haven't made a decision about you yet regarding the named scholarship.

In my case, the fact that other IILJ finalists have already been contacted is not exactly comforting, but last year finalist invites went out gradually over the course of a few weeks (I'm guessing there's some kind of first choice/second choice grouping), so I'm holding out hope until I either hear about my financial aid package, or I get the email that all the finalists have already been contacted, which will be painful to hear, but it's a nice touch so at least we don't have to go on wondering.

Welp, Berkeley just rejected me. Getting into NYU softened the blow, to say the least. At least now I can stop longing for California and enjoying not having a double-digit underemployment score.

Questions for those following their financial aid app on FAAPS:

1) How soon after "Application in Final Stages of Review" did you get your award notification? Mine seems to have moved from received to final review very quickly. (Admitted 2/13; Application Submitted 2/15; Application Under Review 2/15; Application in Final Stages of Review 2/15). Is it normal to fly through the review stages all within the same day? FWIW, I had submitted my Need Access before I got accepted.

2) Has anyone else who applied for RTK or other named scholarships moved to "Final Stages of Review"? I saw above that getting your award notification could be a bad sign that you are not being considered for RTK. I'm hoping that having my financial aid app show as "final stages of review" does not mean I've already been passed over for RTK!

3) On FAAPS you can click on the "My Application" tab and download a PDF of your application. I see that at the bottom of page 1 it asks what other schools you've been accepted to and are seriously considering. I remember leaving this question blank on the Need Access because I could not tell which school required that question & was still waiting on a lot of decisions when I completed the Need Access so I didn't want to shoot myself in the foot with my answer. Do you think I should contact Financial Aid (or update my Need Access?) at this time to answer that question? I also see that on the top of Page 2 there is a question about your area of interest. I don't have an answer listed for that one, although I do not remember consciously skipping it on the Need Access. Same question re: whether it's worth updating my Need Access or contacting Financial Aid to answer it at this time.

Thanks guys!

I applied for RTK and the AnBryce, and I went to final stages of review in one day, as well. I've been sitting there for about two weeks now, and they've released awards twice now without me being notified of mine. I think several other people who applied for named schollies have also been sitting at final stages of review for a while, from what I've gathered from this thread while stalking it to see if anyone had heard back about RTK or he AnBryce, lol.

Just realized 3 weeks is coming up for me --do you have a source for that or was it just an estimation? Thanks!
