i got the rtk interview offer a week and a half ago. I dont think there is a second wave coming because they're interviewing in less than two weeks, and when i mentioned that the date was bad for me they didnt say i could schedule for a different day

I think people mean there may be a second wave of interview invites, not interviews. Several of us ITT still haven't heard either way on RTK.

does anyone know how to go about trying to leverage nyu $ against columbia? I'm just wondering if I should contact their admissions office generally, or someone in particular.

but interview invites are necessarily succeeded by interviews, no?

I meant a second round of invites for the interviews on March 29. I suspect that some of us are basically on a "waitlist" for the interviews and they're waiting to see how many people who've already been invited accept the invite before they make final decisions on the rest of us.

I could be wrong, though I don't see why we wouldn't have received the rejection email if they're not planning to make any other invites.

I just want to make sure that my financial aid isn't being delayed because I accidentally initiated a corrected FAFSA last week.

Did anyone else submit +/- two days of Feb 22/23 and not hear back yet?

At ASW, the director of the finaid office said that all decisions are made between 7-10 days after receiving the paperwork, with the exception of those under consideration for named scholarships. If you are not accepted or invited to interview for a named scholarship, the 7-10 days starts after that decision/notification has been made. Can't say for sure how true any of this actually is, though, since I was declined an interview for RTK, the only named scholarship I applied for, on 3/5, and haven't heard anything yet. Been under final review since 1/27....

Thanks!

I was turned down on 3/4 for the Jacobson so that may have reset the clock.

FWIW, I just got an email saying I have been given a Vanderbilt scholarship... though it looks like they sent a letter last week that I haven't gotten yet. I applied for IILJ and was turned down... It was about a 2-week gap between that notification and notification of the Vandy.

This also happened to me, except I was turned down for the RTK. I haven't checked my mail yet today, but I didn't have a physical letter as of yesterday. (The PDF letter they attached is dated 3/12).

Can we apply for need-based aid if our 2013 taxes aren't in yet? I still haven't gotten a w2 so I won't be able to do it for a while.

You can estimate based on last year's return and then correct the information when you receive your W2 and actually file.

does NYU send your award letter in the mail for financial aid? I ask because berkeley wants a signed letter (for matching scholarships) and the one on the status checker website isn't signed.

Not that I'm aware of. I can't imagine Berkeley wouldn't take a PDF of what you received from NYU if you explain how their system works. I'm sure they're aware of that.

Unless they are aware of it, and plan these loop-holes precisely. :lol:

Waiting for the email that decides what you'll pay on a scale of $0-$200k is almost as intense as waiting for an acceptance.

On another note, I'm assuming a large scholly from Duke won't do much for me in terms of an NYU scholarship negotiation?

I wouldn't say that. I think a significant scholarship from a mid T-14 would certainly be helpful.

They certainly won't match it, but I'm sure that bringing it up can't hurt. Especially given the COL for Durham vs. NYC.

This so true and a huge point to make. Duke has a nearly $50k advantage (this includes accrued interest) over NYU before scholarships ever even come into play. I love NYU, but man does Duke have some low COL (and tuition, btw).
