You need to add an option: "I have not gotten in yet but can't help but look longingly at the thread anyways : X"

I took a math final today. Everything I couldn't figure out in my head was "D." I left in twelve minutes.

Well, I couldn't get better than a B in the class (apparently there was some kind of online homework worth 15% of our grade? News to me.), and after getting into NYU I really had no incentive to do any better than "not fail," so, hey, why not be wholly irresponsible when there's no repercussions?

Anyone know NYU's reputation in terms of merit aid? Do median tier candidates get any?

It's working out pretty well for me. I mean, I just got into NYU Law School. You may have heard of it.

They're stingy. Check LSN for merit aid numbers. I think you get to appeal once, so that's where you can try to leverage scholarship money from other schools

Ha! So glad someone else is treating their courses like this. I stopped trying so hard once acceptances started coming in. Who needs straight A's when you're in at your favorite schools?

That sounds exactly like my math final yesterday. Getting into the school I'm 99% sure I'm attending really took the stress out of finals week. :D

They do seem to give 25-30k to a lot of people, but anything above that is rare.

Does anyone know if their need based aid is included in those amounts?

DLS came 12/12 but I got the call from the dean yesterday. Excited! I went with "still holding on to the CC/HYS dream." Though after being complete for a month with no KB1, it's starting to look more like just "CC" dream... :(

Tuition and fees: $48,213
Room and board: $19,877
Average scholarship or grant award: $16,500
Percentage of students receiving grants: 46%


Public Interest Funding

Loan Repayment Assistance Program for students pursuing careers in public service
15% of graduating students were funded in 2010, when 450 active participants received nearly $5 million in benefits.

Public Interest summer funding grants
1Ls receive $4,500 and 2Ls receive $6,500. In summer 2011, 317 1Ls and 133 2Ls received grants to work in the U.S. and more than 30 other countries.

Anyone admitted on Monday gone purple yet? My mailman probably thinks I'm stalking him because I've been peering out of the window anxiously every time he delivers to my street...

I will keep vigil. I would imagine based on geography and when I got my DLS that I'll be among the first to receive it.

Yeah, I expected to get it fairly early too, but I'm pretty sure my mail man hates me for some reason, my last netflix movie never showed up...

Lol, if it's not YHS, then schools don't give need based aid.

Is that a fact? I know YHS are all-need, but I was under the impression that other schools had some, since they all ask for NeedAccess and FAFSA.
