Haha yeah I'm so excited:) I think there's a good chance I'll be at NYU next year, if I'm able to justify the absurd COL in New York to myself... is anyone here considering living on campus?

Not really, campus housing seems expensivo. But if it's your first time in New York, I might recommend it for the first year.

at first i was totally disinclined to live on campus, but i figure the move will be so overwhelming and i don't want to isolate myself the first year. i figure living among students going through the same thing will help me adjust to my first year at nyu law lol. then i can move my second year to somewhere else, once i know where to look, etc.

then again, i've yet to see the nyu law housing!

You definitely need that info on at least one of the forms depending on which schools you're sending them to. I'm pretty sure NYU requires it on needaccess but not on fafsa so you'll want to go back and fix it.

For NYU, you only need to fill out the parental info on Need Access if you're hoping for need-based aid. For merit aid, you should be fine. I'm not sure about other schools though...

But is there really any point in NOT trying to get need-based aid? I mean, it's 25-30 minutes of your time...

And untold amount of time for your parents as they navigate the shitshow that is need-access. And even though your own might take only 30 minutes (that's being extremely conservative), it feels like 30 years.

I think we do have to send in a transcript and dean's certification so they can verify our bachelor's degree since it's required for law school. But since they report our grades that we apply with they're not going to freak if they drop a little. I wouldn't go crazy, but I'm not breaking my neck to try and get a 4.0 either. But yes I feel your pain. And I still have to keep working on my senior honors thesis. :evil: :evil: :evil:

ooh, i'm impressed by your will to write a senior honors thesis! i've no motivation now that i'm accepted by nyu. good luck with it!

as long as our reported GPA remains, i guess it'll be ok. my lsdas gpa of 3.93 has already dropped to a 3.9 from last semester, and will likely decline more come april...

oh, it is painnnnnful to care about undergrad! i am so procrastinating this paper by creeping on this forum.

I think there's nothing wrong with being excited about NYU. I certainly feel very lucky to be accepted. And my honors thesis is dominating my life...I wish I could blow it off.

haha, i do need to relax i guess. i feel fortunate to have been accepted by nyu and fear that if i get a bad grade in a class they could revoke my acceptance. idk. thanks for making me realize it wasn't a lottery lol...

Yeah, I'm still chugging along for minimum grades needed to get honors, but seriously: not a lot of effort involved in getting 8 credits worth of B+/A-...

Thinking about it--I need to coordinate with my job, so I'm not sure yet.
