NYC is really easy to navigate after you get used to it. Most of Manhattan is on a grid system. Also, smart phone is your friend.

Hi! I'm new to this forum but on pins and needles about the law & business scholarship. Did anyone who has heard they are a finalist not hear until after they were admitted? If so, how long after? And if you did hear back, why do you think you're a finalist/ what did you write about? Thanks!

Hola, Native New Yorkians!

Question from a Non-Yorker trying to get into Manhattan from JFK on a budget lateish at night ~11:30pm.

The train/bus options seem kind of nightmarish, and shelling out $50.00 for a cab isn't all that appealing either... So, does anyone have any tricks up their sleeve? Or should I just quit whining and pay up? Also, are Ubers from the airport pretty easy to get at that time of night?

Thanks.

If you don't mind sitting/standing for a while, you can take the subway which should cost about 8 dollars. Way cheaper than a $45 before tip taxi.

Oh wait, you said not train. There are also Super Shuttle like services that you could probably use.

Two weeks after you submit via the Need Access website or two weeks after it shows application complete on NYUs award status page?

LOL Uber is way more expensive than a cab, so if you were thinking Uber go cab. Train option (Airtrain to A) is not terrible as you are on the train most of the time. Also, if you are considering moving to NYC, taking the late night train is a must experience. For shits and giggles.

Best way to get to Manhattan from JFK is the LIRR to Penn Station. Way less hellish than the subway and the ride is a hell of a lot shorter.

I need some quick clarifications.

My understanding of the process for getting cholarships/aid is this:
1. Application includes essays for named scholarships
2. You are admitted!
3. NYU decides whether or not you are awesome enough for named scholarships and emails/doesn't email you
4. You send in NeedAccess/FAFSA
5. Two weeks later, NYU sends you info about your aid offer
6. You double it in negotiations

Is this true?

Do Vandy's ever come in pizza box or are they sent by email and/or separate letter?

Also how long after acceptance do pizza boxes come?
