I'm super confused about the financial aid process. Do they email you a status update after you submit need access? Submitted ages ago and have heard nothing.

Would anyone who went to the ASW care to give their thoughts on it? I wasn't able to go, but im really interested to hear other peoples opinions

Hey. I attended. This is only my experience, but I was impressed. Both the class I sat in on and the mock class were fabulous and deeply engaging. Most panels were informative and interesting.

Overall vibe was very collegial and down-to-earth, which felt genuine, at least to me.

I left feeling good about the fit and more excited than when I arrived, which I feel like is the goal of these things.

NYU 1L here--just wanted to chime in to say that I left my own ASW feeling equally impressed but wondering whether it was genuine or just theatrics. My experience has been that it's absolutely genuine.

So you recommend the subway over taking a taxi?

Depending on the time of day, getting a taxi at Penn Station/Seventh Ave is a bitch. Plus it's $2 and some change for subway vs. fifteen bucks to go downtown in a taxi.

If it were me, I save money and take an A-C-E train, which I can catch without leaving Penn. Plus you're looking at a ten minute train ride vs. god-knows-how-long a taxi ride depending on the time of day.

Couldn't agree more. Taking the subway is not only much, much cheaper but will definitely be shorter. Catch the A express and it'll legitimately be a 7 minute ride. It drops you about two blocks from the law school buildings if you exit from the 3rd St/6th Ave side.

for all non-New Yorkers: Hopstop is a great app to download to have the subway map on your phone and to get really easy directions using mass transit anywhere in the 5 boroughs. It'll also tell you how much it'll cost you to take a cab.

Has anyone been successful (or unsuccessful) in acquiring a travel stipend for ASW? I sent a request last week but haven't heard anything.

I'm sure there's something silly I'm missing or doing wrong, but is anyone else having trouble registering for the next ASW? I keep clicking the link on the admitted student site where it says to RSVP, and it just leads me here http://www.law.nyu.edu/admissions/

Has anyone else had this problem? Sorry if it has been asked before..

Try a different browser if you were using Chrome, same thing happened to me.

Aha! Thanks!! I didn't think it was a browser issue because it wasn't giving an error message or anything. Guess I should've realized that's what it almost always is..

Don't worry, the only reason I figured it out was because I came here and asked the same question, haha.

Fair to say that NYU does not offer travel stipends for ASWs, right?

Here is the finaid website https://faaps.law.nyu.edu/studentmain.html. Once you submit your Need access you won't get an email from NYU; it just updates on this website, but you will get an email once a decision is reached.
