That is a fantastic idea if it hasn't been done yet!

Question!

Do we need to do anything special to be considered for merit scholarships? I know that for need-based aid we have to fill out Need Access, but I can't find anything about merit scholarships.

Not for general merit scholarships, no. But you do need to apply for certain named scholarships, such as Root and Furman. I think.

For total COA? That would be pretty reasonable.

Anyone else apply for the AnBryce? The instructions say to write a 1 page essay but 500-700 words. I'm assuming this would mean to single space to fit into one page. I'm under the impression that double space makes things easier to read and how the rest of all my applications are. What did you do?

Is the mythical packet still AWOL? I just wanted to make sure I haven't missed anything.

I live in Brooklyn and still haven't received anything. My guess is mid to early Jan.

What's the consensus on updating NYU with a new LSAT score if I'm already admitted? Should I just send a brief e-mail to the admissions office informing them about the new score for merit scholarship purposes?

I probably should've told everyone this sooner, but I called admissions a while ago to ask that my packet be sent to my permanent address since I was returning home for winter break
and I was told they wouldn't be going out until mid-January.

Gotcha, thanks for the information! I figured that was the case, but at the same time am overly anxious about LS mail. :lol:

I've read on multiple occasions to just let them receive your updated LSAT (via LSAC, automatically). I honestly don't think you need to do anything, but if it gives you a piece of mind then go for it, I certainly don't think you'll be the first to send in such an email, haha.

It'll likely come within a week of your acceptance, but this may be delayed due to the holidays.

We get a big package too?!?!?!? I have a separate address for big packages so I'm pretty paranoid that I'm not going to get all of my packages.

I was accepted on the first day and I'm within a couple of hours from NYU. Like last years, it kinda looks like a mini pizza box and has a faculty viewbook, another viewbook, a letter, the school magazine, and the nyu post its that we got with the first letter :) 8)

I got the "big" package today. Live close to NY, accepted 12/3.

There is a beautiful post-card about Admitted Students Days.

I'm in Georgia (not close to NY) and got my package today (accepted mid-Dec) as well, so I imagine people around the country will be getting them soon.

I got my Pizza box today as well. In fact I likely had it when I posted earlier, I just hadn't checked for it yet.
