NYUs outreach game is so on point though. Anyone get personal emails from notable graduates / big law partners?

For me personally, they definitely did the best in this area.

For those who attended the earlier ASWs, does NYU give out much free stuff? I need to know for luggage purposes as I am very light packer generally. :lol:

eta: also a note for people reading- in my conversations with NYU and Chi I really really sold why I wanted to go there over CLS so maybe they felt like they could offer less?


Nah, the consensus is that NYU is stingy.

I feel like they are perhaps trying to cover their lack of financial aid to many with this kind of stuff. Trying to sell you through the receptions (and hence "connections"), emails, and everything. If that is the case, it's kind of lame, since none of this stuff will matter until your grades come through.

Yeah, to put it in perspective, NYU gave me $0. I got ~$15k/year at Yale.

That strikes me as kind of bizarre, mostly because NYU offered me the most $$ of CCN.

I got a thin reusable grocery bag, t-shirt, water bottle, and folding laundry hamper (the classic college dorm kind).

Thanks so much for sharing! I think I can probably mash most of that into my teeny suitcase, except maybe the hamper which I can just carry.

Water bottle is TCR. Been looking to get a new one for the gym since I lost mine. NYU just made up for its stinginess, I guess.

I don't think this ever got answered but does someone have insight as to if the bolded is the norm. I appealed yesterday. I didn't email anyone because my appeals tab showed up when I went to "My Follow-Ups" and then clicked on "NYU School of Law Fin. Aid Notification." So I just submitted it from the tab after that yesterday after receiving my Columbia offer.

Now the tab doesn't appear anymore and I have no mention on the faaps site or by email of a confirmation. Is this the norm when using the appeals tab?



I resubmitted through the portal. I called and they said they didn get it, and told me to email the text and the attachments.


Awesome, thanks for the info!

Ya, and when I got an email from financial aid about negotiating they suggested that differences in debt are irrelevant if you want to work in the private sector.

Nice job being in tune with reality, NYU.

For those who got $0, did you receive the financial aid email/website/whatever saying you would be receiving no money from NYU or you just did not hear anything about money?
I still haven't heard anything about scholarship/financial aid from NYU and I was admitted early Jan. My financial aid status says "application under review". Does this mean I'm getting nothing from NYU? :(

There is an NYU student group that creates it every year, by what has been said by previous posters it should be up and running in the near future. For those attending this weeks ASW, did everybody get the same case for mock class? I personally received Staples vs U.S. Also, any thoughts/opinions on the Cravath event? Couldn't miss out on 4 days of work this week so unfortunately had to skip it.

Anyone else here attend the event at Cravath last night? I actually had a pretty good time. Good conversations all around, and I genuinely liked just about everybody I met. I gotta say I really love the career services woman, Irene. She is hilarious, super down-to-earth, and from speaking with alumni I also gather that she busts her ass in order to help every student get the job they want.
