Where is this list? Did they email it?

Got my finaid offer in. It's not a full ride, but I'm definitely pleased, haha. 50k for the first two years and then 15k for the last year (25k if PI work) for up to 75k.

Congrats! Do you think this means they're starting to roll out their general financial aid information for this week or just that you were in the running for one of the named scholarships? I'm getting antsy waiting to hear that I won't be getting any aid...

Just checked FAAPS and mine also says "Application in Final Stage of Review," though my date is today (4/10). Hopefully that means another wave of decisions is coming out real soon.

I bet they're going to start rolling them out now. I have a feeling they were waiting until decisions were finalized on the named scholarships before batching out this set.

My e-mail was the standard e-mail that I believe everyone gets and didn't mention anything AnBryce related.

Just got my award of a grand total of $0k. Shiiiiiit.

Now I wish they would have waited until after I visit on Friday, because this pretty much makes NYU a non-option.

4.0/173.... and $0?? That's rough. Do you have money elsewhere?

When did your application start saying "Final Stage of Review" or something like that? Just so I can get an idea of how long I have to wait.

Yeah I'm going to try to convince myself this had more to do with a complete lack of need than some flaw in my app.

So far $120k at Northwestern and $60k from Chicago that they seemed willing to increase because of NU. I'll wait until after the weekend in case I'm uncontrollably in love with NYU but I think I'll be withdrawing. :(

Sorry, I didn't access the faaps until I got my award notification. It sounds like they're starting to trickle in though.

Ouch, $0k here. Looks like I will be withdrawing today since Chicago gave me $90k.

If you really like NYU, try to negotiate. P.S. Congrats on the Chicago amount :)

Do we think these small (aka nonexistent amounts) that have just come out are due to it being the 2nd round of awards and there being just less money to give out? I know this is a small sample of people so far but it seems like people with numbers that would have gotten $$ in the first round are getting nothing now.

I was thinking the same thing, but I'm hoping it's not the case.

That's too depressing to consider, I need the $$ like the rest of us...

I actually think that the financial aid awards are based quite heavily on parent finances...so maybe that's also a big reason why people with great numbers are getting less/none this time around?

Not sure if I agree with that, my family's income has qualified me for a decent amount of need aid at almost every other school. It sucks when it's more expensive to go to NYU than it is to go to Harvard. :?

As predicted, got nothing. Could someone who negotiated with the fin aid office post/PM me his or her e-mail? I'm not sure how to word this.

Yes, but my understanding was that NYU and other peer schools use "need-based" grants as a wink wink substitute for merit aid. Hence why there is a strong correlation between above median numbers and receiving aid. I think the loans in the aid package are more heavily based on family income.

Just withdrew, hopefully the 37.5k they offered me goes to one of you deserving TLSers!
