Ooh, thanks for the heads up. I checked the admitted J.D. students page and it gives VERY vague instructions on how to submit the Need Access application. Do you know how to?

I don't really know what you're asking, but need access is required for everyone who wants institutional aid. I read somewhere that for people who are offered named scholarships, you're still required to submit need access before your aid package is finalized. As to whether or not anyone who applied for a named scholarship has received their aid package yet, I'm not sure, but I haven't heard of anyone yet. I'm not sure if they wait to evaluate your need access form until after the interviews are finalized.

So Need schollys are a huge flame for NYU, right? Should I say screw trying to track down my mother to get her data since she hasn't given me a red cent in 11 years? Also, my father left when I was a baby and I've never met him... how do I fill out his form?

I'd say contact NYU financial aid and explain your circumstances. I had to do something similar for undergrad financial aid. It required information from both parents, and I was raised solely by my mother with no contact from my father. I had to fill out a form, and never had to get information from my father.

Noodley, here's the language from NYU if it helps at all. You shouldn't need to do this for the FAFSA since that doesn't require parent info anyways. It looks like NYU is all about the formal documentation. Good luck!

"What if my parents are unwilling to complete the Need Access Financial Aid Application?
In order to be fair to all of the students and families who comply with this requirement, applications without parental information will not be considered for any institutional aid. Requests for exemption from this policy are handled on a case-by-case basis and are granted only in extraordinary circumstances. If you believe your family situation warrants an exemption for one or both parents, you may submit a formal written appeal to our office setting forth the basis of the request. You must provide detailed information and, whenever possible, documentation in support of the appeal (e.g., court documents, letters from social worker, member of the clergy)."

Just sent them an email with a letter and got a response in two minutes. Hopefully this will help me get some movement from the 12/12 UR and keep me away from the waitlist. I really want NYU

Just got my offer. $35k per year for the first two, and $17,500 for the third (unless I make less than $15k during 2L summer, in which case back to $35k for the third). I'm pretty pleased with this...going to make deciding a little more difficult, with the full rides from UVA and Michigan.

Similar offer, minus the full rides at V and M part.

I wish someone would contact, because some of us have auto-admit numbers (or at least highly competitive numbers). But we'll probably get a bureaucratic response: "All apps are considered in their fullest blah blah blah"

Yeah, that's exactly what's stopping me, because I'm definitely in that boat. I feel like it's not completely out of line because three months is kind of ridiculous especially when we all applied relatively early. I would at least appreciate a response saying "we have too many applications and you'll hear from us soon; we haven't forgotten about you."

Just received my offer as well. $20k for 1L and 2L, and $10k for 3L. Although, I can't find the stips- does anyone know off the top of their head? Also, does anyone know if it's possible to negotiate these amounts?

Congrats to all of those of you with scholarships! For those who heard today, are any of you January admits? Trying to figure out if admit-date is correlated to when you get your scholarship package or not. Also, did any of you also apply to a named scholarship or no? Thanks!

Congrats Shntn, that's an awesome offer!

It seems like just yesterday Sunny was telling me that I "suck at life" when I pointed out how amusing it was that CCN w/ money locks where sweating out getting into the Vandys and the Michigans of the law school world. This cycle has been a trying and stressful one for us all but I am glad to have suffered through it with this group. I mean that sincerely.

Congrats bro, you deserve it!

Need Access a couple weeks ago, FAFSA on Monday. Pretty quick turnaround, I'm impressed. I was an early December admit.

Thanks, it's definitely an interesting offer that I honestly wasn't expecting. And +1 to the stressful cycle. The past months have been...very trying indeed.

And yeah, that was sunny being a bit protective of me. :lol:
