Got mine too but I don't quite understand it. Is the amount next to TOTAL AWARDS the scholarship for the upcoming year?

EDIT: Nevermind. Zero.

Nah, I think that's just the max Stafford. They assume you'll do that.

So, CLS it is, then? Fuck.

Me, I counted on paying sticker, so this is more of an inconvenience than anything.

Probably. Sorry dude. I'll be at ASW for some free booze though!

Yeah no $$ here either. It's worth trying to negotiate a bit I think, since I'm looking at 22.5 a year from Michigan, but as of now I'm probably headed to Ann Arbor...

I got a 75k Dean's Award. It says I need to accept/reject it by April 6th. Does anyone know if this is before or after CLS's awards come out?

Just got my letter too. Some money, but far less than Chicago. I'll try to negotiate, but I'm not holding my breath for them to increase it by much.

Usually around the same time. I would send out your negotiation letter now... and you can always try asking for an extension on the deadline

I got $50,000 total. I love NYU, and I'd love to stay in NYC, but sadly I have to give more consideration to the Levy or Chicago's scholarship. A bit disappointing, but hopefully everyone else hearing back will have better luck!

I haven't received anything yet. If we get a letter with an offer can we assume that we weren't chosen as finalists for the full ride scholarships (that is, if I get a letter with a normal offer can I assume the Furman is a no go)?

Neither have I, both for finaid or Furman.

I would think that they're two separate processes since the Furman has its own committee, but who knows.

Got nothing.

Any way I can predict how much I'd get for Year 2 and 3? (Can safely assume it was my 2011 income, not my parents' income/assets, that screwed me).

Yeah, that's what I figured as well. It's weird that we haven't received anything yet.

edit: I also haven't finished NeedAccess, if that matters.

I know. Most of the other NYU scholarships have gotten around to notifying people. Although the Furman website does say that interviews and notifications will happen in March and April, so I guess it's not entirely unexpected. I'm pretty surprised though that they're waiting this long since they know their finalists are going to be competitive at other places (and for other scholarships).
