I emailed the Financial Aid office about merit-only aid and this was their response:
In order to only apply for merit based financial aid, you will need to complete our institutional financial aid application. The application is available on-line at https://faaps.law.nyu.edu/studentmain.html
. You will be instructed on that webpage to log in using your LSAC# or SSN (Lxxxxxxxx or xxxxxxxxx) as your username, and your birthdate (mmddyyyy) as your password. Once you are in the database, click on “My Application”, and fill in the requested information.
Yeah, according to the admitted students website, you do have to fill out the Need Access form this year... so I'm a little uncertain.
"Entering first year JD students applying for NYU Law institutional scholarships (need-based and merit-based) are required to submit financial information using the Need Access application. To apply online, visit Access Group's Web site."
Yeah, I'm still totally unclear on this. Has anyone else found out anything else about this?
You need to fill out the Need Access if you are applying for need-based AND
merit-based aid. If you want to apply for merit only, contact the financial aid office, and they'll have you submit a form, but you don't need to fill out Need Access.
If you fill out Need-Access without your parent's information, they'll automatically consider you for merit-based aid only.
