My fin aid has been under review since the end of February (sent all the forms in the end of Jan)-10 days would be nice.


Word. I liked CLS more than I thought I would, and so now I feel a little bit like NYU needs to tell me if they are giving me any $$

Under review would be fine for me, it says "application not started"

How much did they give you already? And how much would it take to get you to go. Pm if want



I have not heard anything yet. I was admitted last week and filled out the financial forms immediately. I suppose to make me have real decision they would have to do 1/2 of the northwestern scholarship. I am just in a weird position now because NYU/CLS has always been my goal but now it is more than likely that I am going to be turning it down.

Yeah, I agree. As soon as you're able, go ahead and send them the Northwestern offer.



Linzer, have you visited NYU yet? Are you going to the last ASW?

Going to the last ASW, but I was almost hoping that I would hate CLS and it would make the whole decision easy, but I did not. I liked it.

Good luck Brightline! I'd be pretty surprised if NYU "matched" up to 75K for that NU scholly, but you might as well try (and I hope I'm wrong!). Either way, going to NU on full scholly is a very attractive option.

Could someone please post (or PM me) the text of the enrollment form? I forgot the specific language, and I'd like to verify that I can remain on waitlists. Thanks.

I don't know the exact words, but I do know that it only tells you to withdraw from schools you have been accepted into. Meaning, you can stay on waitlists. HTH!

I agree. It will be awesome if they do, and if they don't then ill "settle" for a full ride to Northwestern.

Bryan Stevenson just made the decision between Columbia vs. NYU a lot easier.

I probably will be. Although I was hoping you would get into CLS, I'm glad you are still probably going to NYU. I came to the same decision a month ago after each admitted students days. I'm meeting with a family friend who is a recruiting partner at a V50 firm here in LA and if he tells me there is not a significant difference between CLS and NYU, and barring an acceptance at Harvard I will be at NYU next year.

The PI presentation was pretty impressive. Going into NYU's ASW I was sort of leaning CLS, but now NYU is definitely still in the picture. We'll see how I feel after I visit CLS on the 18th.
