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).


It was likely your numbers that led to the lack of an award. Don't expect anything in years 2 or 3.

also got nothing! Which means I probably won't go...though I'll wait until after ASW to completely decide.

Does NYU negotiate at all?

No scholarship for me either. That massive "DIFFERENCE/GAP" line is pretty daunting.

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.


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.


it does matter

I got 37,500 with the option to make it 45,000 if I do public interest work. That might just make my decision for me.

Are people still receiving scholarships in real time? Or are people just posting what they received 30 min+ ago in their aid email? (Yes, I'm asking because I'm more or less praying that mine is still on it's way even though it's well past 5pm NY EST)

Still nothing for me. Should AnBryce'ers even be expecting an email? Also, we only had to complete the FAFSA and NeedAccess for this, right? There wasn't like one of these Duke scholarship apps?

People who are being considered for the big name schollys have not gotten a letter so far. I'm guessing this does NOT mean you won't get anything. Even if you don't get your scholly, they still award you some money after your interview/essay/whatever you're doing to get your scholarship.

Same here.

Actually, tbf, everything is filled out except for my non-custodial parent section. Naturally, this is going to be the biggest pain in the ass section to fill out and I've been waiting for said parent to get their shit together taxwise so I can do it.

Thank you sir. I wasn't expecting anything with my numbers so I am very happy. I am super pumped for ASW coming up now. If someone wants to give me a signal to organize a TLS meet up, I would be happy to oblige. I would even consider making an ass out of myself to tip off other people in here.

No money here either. I was hoping for something nominal since I'm at one median and above the other, but not really expecting it since NYU doesn't seem very generous with their generic awards. Scratching NYU off the list.

$50,000 with an extra $10,000 if I do public interest for my 2L summer. Pretty surprised given my GPA. Email sent around 2pm but I didn't check till now.

$37,500 with public interest option my 2L summer to make it $45,000... I really wasn't expecting anything at all, and NYU is still the best school I've gotten into so this is amazing.

How do you negotiate fin aid ?

I remember reading that you have to email NYU and then they'd open up a tab on FAAPS. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

Didn't bring my laptop with me to NY and email wouldn't open on my phone. Am paying $10 for 15 mins of hotel internet but it's worth it! Got $50,000 as well. Congrats everyone!

$62,500 here with an option to make it $75,000 if I do PI...out of control!! NYU is back in the game in a major way!

Nothing (+30 min ago). Guess I'll try to negotiate with them leveraging my Chicago offer, but this probably eliminates them from my list.

I got nothing. I'm above both medians too.
Does NYU leverage at all? If you got substantial $$ from a school in the lower T14 or T20 would that matter to them?

I don't know why some of you are shocked...you can tell based on your numbers whether you'll be getting a big scholly or small one.

Looks like NYU has seemingly done away with the 25-30K offers they used to make to lower end admits, and put all that into larger scholarships to reel in the big fish. It's a bold strategy (Cotton), let's see how it pays off for them.

Also, heartened to read how much they keep pushing PI. Clearly, that's a real focus and source of pride for the school.

I'm a little surprised because I'm at 174/3.8ish and got nothing!
