I'm going to the RTK interview, so the School is offering me a hotel for 3 nights. However, I still need to find a room because I'll stay in NYC 2 extra nights. I already checked the hotel NYU booked to see how much I would have to pay for the extra nights but it's very expensive for me.
Is it possible to stay with students? How can we do that?
And which is the best way to go from JFK to NYU?
Thanks!!


There are those pod hotels, but I think they still run you around $80 and are in Midtown. You could always try airbnb!

As for JFK - NYU, you can take the Air Train for $5 and then take the A train towards Manhattan for another $2.25, and that will drop you at West 4th, which is very close to NYU Law. Alternatively you could take the shuttle bus for $10 (http://www.nyairportservice.com/ or Googled equivalent) to Penn Station, and then take the A/C/E downtown to West 4th, or the downtown 1 train to Christopher Street.

Most of all, you need to go to 53rd and 6th. You'll thank me later.

Now THAT is the sort of thing I am definitely looking for. I have a low-key obsession with quality cheap food (holes in the walls, neighborhood gems, places with little italian/mexican grandmothers still hand making the pasta/tortillas)


Mamouns. You want to go to there.

I'm not entirely sure how many people are in this boat. I, personally, am one of those named-scholly rejects (sad) and have not yet heard about regular financial aid. I'm getting a bit impatient but I also applied ED so I'm not expecting any money anyway. Guess I'd rather just get the bad news sooner rather than later

Has anyone who was not in the first batch of financial aid e-mails heard back? I didn't get my Need Access in until the day those e-mails came out, so obviously I didn't hear anything then, but I'm wondering how long it's going to be before the rest of us (procrastinators?) hear.

The only boat I want is a boat load of cash so I can afford nyu. Not getting RTK isn't surprising, but I wish I could just find out if I should expect anything.

In case anyone is still wondering for people who did not receive any word on the named scholarships, I called the office and they said that all finalists have been notified, they just must not have sent out all of the rejection emails yet. I thought I would post because I know a small part of me was still holding out hope that I might be in the running since I had not received an outright rejection... but alas, it was not meant to be.

Now I guess I am in that small group of people still waiting to hear about if I have been given any aid at all. When I gave my decision date (December) and the fact that I had filled out FAFSA and Need Access over a month ago, the guy in admissions said I should have gotten my package already and that I should call financial aid. Unfortunately when I got off the phone with him it was 4:01, so the financial aid office had already stopped taking calls for the day.

I took the previous poster's idea and called financial aid this morning asking about the status of my financial aid app. As a big scholarship applicant, I clearly missed the first round of notifications. I was told that the next round would be in "early April," even though I'd applied for aid in early February. I also asked about what the deadline for accepting one of those scholarships would be and was told it would probably be "early to mid May." That seems odd to me given that their school deposit deadline is May 4, but it's what I was told. Thought some of you other big scholly applicants would like to know.

I wonder if this might also apply to those who received a financial aid decision and appealed it?

To those interviewing for the AnBryce: does anyone know when we can expect decisions after the interviews? Obviously some schools have deposit deadlines in early April and I'm wondering how long of an extension I'll need to ask for...

Also, has anyone received an email regarding the identities of the interview panelists?

Nope to your second question. Where are you interviewing?

Same boat. I'd like to know who the panel is so I can at least look them up and have a little familiarity before going into the firing squad.

Anyway, my understanding is you should get a phone call decision the following week and you have three? days to accept.

I'm guessing the first round of offers will go out early in the week and a second round of offers/rejections at the end of the week?

Wow, that's extremely frustrating! Fortunately I'm an EDer, so other than having to wait longer this is just a minor inconvenience. But how are RDers supposed to make decisions for deposit deadlines in April if they're not getting an offer until early April? Seems like poor logic.

Do we know the night schedule for ASW?

Is Thursday's "night out" the law revue? In which case Friday night is nothing? (just a little confused and seeing if it's possible to fit in NY friends those days)

Not sure, though you can obviously do your own thing either night.

Is the law revue performance free for ASW students?

Finally got details emailed to me for the AnBryce Interview, I'm excited about being in DC and NY, but is anyone else a little intimidated by the schedule?

It's definitely a lot. Luckily, the interviews are early on and we can get over that stress before ASD

I feel like we're actually going to be missing a lot of ASD, isn't it happening both Thursday and Friday, or is most stuff on Friday?

I wonder what we're supposed to do between our interview time and when we leave on the train? Sit around in the Supreme Court? (Not the worst thing to complain about)

Check your spam. I'm sure you'll get it in a few mins. All he had to change was the interview time for each person.

I feel like we're actually going to be missing a lot of ASD, but then I haven't really looked at the full schedule so I don't know what else is planned. I wonder what we're supposed to do between our interview time and when we leave on the train? Sit around in the Supreme Court? (Not the worst thing to complain about)


I'm really hoping we'll get to take some kind of tour. I realllyyyyyyy want to see the basketball court

Are you both interviewing in DC?

Maybe NYC interview info hasn't gone out yet. I'll shoot an e-mail to them if I haven't gotten any info on monday.

At least my tickets are booked and I'm ready to go. I'd just feel a little more at ease knowing who my interviewers are and the exact schedule.
