This is very similar to what Stanford and Berkeley gave me in the form of need-based aid, so I'm kind of thinking this $$ from NYU is also need-based disguised as a "dean's scholarship." Which might also explain why a lot of you with good numbers didn't get anything?
ETA: I'm also an RTK reject (did not interview).
Yeah I got a bit more than that with a similar 2L stipulation, and the only explanation I have for it is that they incorporated need into the calculation. My numbers are very splitter and I wasn't expecting anything. The only other explanation I can think of is that I submitted my financial aid info in like January, but so did a bunch of other people.
