Sounds like NYU is trying to steal away some of the Butler/Hamilton thunder.

I think we were admitted on the same day, and I got mine today. I'm on the west coast.

So happy to be joining this thread! Accepted today and it feels great to have an admittance under my belt. Now to tell the school principal I'm not coming back next year...

Time to order some Seamless to celebrate. It is a school night after all.

Does anyone know (from experience or perusing last year's thread) how long it typically takes to receive your aid offer after you submit the form/NeedAccess and everything?

Congrats :D :D

My first mailing was dated the same day as I received my acceptance call, so its definitely possible that you get your acceptance letter today. My pizza box, on the other hand, took a while.

Congrats!!! I got my pizza box only a few days after my acceptance call/email and I'm in TN... so it should be arriving to you soon!

Also, they will probably mail you an identical one a week later :P

Thanks all! Another question (I also posted in NYU c/o 2017 Applicants Thread but haven't got any reply yet):

bbkk wrote:btw, what is Vandy? I always thought it was the full ride for JD. But I just checked the website, and it seems to be the full ride for LLM. :?: :?: :?:

There's no JD scholarship named Vanderbilt:

While there is a "Arthur T. Vanderbilt Scholarships" for LLM

It seems like they are starting to send these out, unsolicited, to candidates w/ HYS-type numbers this cycle. Think of it as the equivalent of a Hamilton at Columbia.

Either they have some extra money to throw around this year, or they are getting desperate to maintain their median.

They offered some Vandys to JD candidates with high #s last cycle, as well.

So no one who applied for a named scholarship got this? Or is that just what we're assuming? Because if we end up not getting one of those won't all the money be gone? :(
