Just got a $25k total Dean's scholarship. It expires 4/18. Pretty excited though as I was already leaning NYU. I guess I will give CLS a chance to match though. The important thing though for you guys here is that they are still giving money!

I also have to remind myself that compared to CLS it's kind of like a $40k scholarship as NYU is about $5k cheaper per year...

Harvard most likely but an outside chance of taking a scholarship at berkeley. Still waiting on stanford but that looks like a call that is never coming.

I was disappointed by the bankruptcy class that I sat in on - it was terrible. A lot of the students would not answer questions when called on, and the ones that did often got in wrong. It seemed that a lot of them did not study or care. Also, the professor was calling on people from a list, and it seemed he did not know the names of people in the class. The class was not that big, so I was surprised by that. It was only one class, so I do not know how typical what I saw was.



Can anyone else speak about their classroom experience? This kind of worries me.

Seems like the opposite of the class I sat in on (Administrative and Regulatory State).

I sat in on a con law class and thought it was great! The professor had a great sense of humor and definitely DID know (at least some of) his students- he remembered that a student had asked about something before. Several students raised their hands to make contributions voluntarily. Everyone seemed pretty engaged and laughed at the appropriate nerdy law jokes. In general, I was very entertained and impressed.

This was not at all like my experience. I sat in on two classes, one was incredibly lively while the other was mostly just a lecture. However in both classes there were questions asked and discussions about the questions asked by both students and the professor. Overall, my classroom experience was very positive.

This sounds a lot like the copyright class I sat in on during the first ASW.

Haha yeah I definitely think that sticking to the PI/international stuff was the way to go. I sat in on the clinics info session, and Dean Hertz ran part of it like an actual class. It was really interesting and made me super excited for 2L year when we can start doing clinics!!!

Maybe true, but I have sat in on other IP classes at a few schools and thought they were interesting. I'm sure it depends a lot on the prof, that day's topic, etc. so I'm not too worried about it - just somewhat unimpressed.

:( For such a rich school they seem to be quite stingy with their funds outside of the named schollies. It's actually kind of weird.

Considering how good the named scholly programs are, its hard to begrudge them saving $$ for finaid and going cheap on the merit aid.

Yeah that's true. I just keep seeing people who are getting great schollies from CLS get a lot less from NYU. It's just kind of interesting how differently the two approach their financial aid process.

Send Financial Aid and email or call them--they have a formal appeals process that goes through the same FAAPS system. Basically, you'll see a new tab in FAAPS entitled "My Appeal" where you can upload documents and insert a reason for your appeal before submitting it online.

Just got a $37,500 ($45,000 with public interest summer) Dean's Award!

Can anyone explain how they calculate Assumed Annual Student Contribution? Is it just $70,866 minus your award? Or does it consider their estimated Stafford Loans? The numbers don't seem to add up...

Congrats! And to answer your question about the Student Contribution - NYU expects every student to contribute at least $1700 per year (the reason given is that NYU believes every student should be responsible for at least part of his/her education). And then based on your assets as detailed in your NeedAccess or FAFSA form (I forget which one), NYU increases your Assumed Annual Student Contribution. I'm not sure if I really agree with the process because it seems like they expect you to spend all your savings on law school... anyway, hope that answers your question!
