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


thanks for the responses guys! I have a random question about need access....did any of you say yes to the sections asking if they are allowed to disclose your/parental info for purpose of reporting as recipient of funds and/or to outside parties for scholarship consideration. It just seemed vague to me but I didn't want to say no if that somehow affected my chances at $...

I said yes, though I doubt it'll make a difference. I'm guessing it's for organizations/foundations that offer specific scholarships (X ethnicity from X state with X background, etc.) so they would ask schools if they have anyone that matches their criteria and if you said yes, schools would be able to release info to them for consideration. It can't hurt, but you're probably not missing out on a whole lot if you're uncomfortable with it.

Not a January admit, but I did apply for the RTK scholarship. No word on that yet, though.

I said yes for this, as well.

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!

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:


I don't blame him, it can be hard to hear that one of your friends is going to go to one of the top 6 law schools in this country on a good scholarship. :)

Congrats on all the scholarships guys!

it sounds like a lot of people have heard back on $$$ already. For those of you that have, did any of you apply for a named scholarship?

If so, does your dean scholly mean you arent getting named scholarship?
If not, does that mean they are waiting to interview you first?

and are all of these coming via email?

Yeah. if I remember correctly, getting a Dean's scholarship before named scholarships were announced meant you didn't make the finalist cut

Haha, I didn't mean to say that getting a scholly now was bad news, but, getting a financial aid email now and finding out that not only did I not get any money, but I'm also not a finalist for the named scholarship, would be very bad news. If NYU throws a dime my way under any circumstances I will be ecstatic.

Got a 50K + 10K (PI conditional) offer from NYU today. Don't know what to think of it as I don't have many other offers to compare it with. Still waiting for that elusive NCE from columbia, but my hope is dwindling as everyday goes by.

Early in December. The finaid decision came about 4 business days after I submitted my Need Access.

I'm below median on LSAT and above 75th on GPA for NYU if that matters at this point. Is it better to start negotiating now or wait until the end of the cycle (April-ish)?


how do you know you got 0 already? unless you are anticipating getting something better, i dont think it hurts to send your uva offer and ask for something, anything. itll proabbly be like 25k


I was a December admit, and got word last friday.

ETA: Should I e-mail admissions or financial aid?


RSterling, you send that email yet? get any response?

I got 62k (75k if PI).
I'd love to go to NYU but can I justify choosing NYU over UVA's $135k?

depends. if i were you, i would consider the following:

(1) will I be significantly happier at NYU? if yes, you may be better off going there because you will do better, increasing your odds of long-term success.
(2) do I want to live/work in NY or VA?
(3) what do I want to get involved with in ls? are those programs/organizations/curricula comparable?
(4) will the kind of law I want to practice allow me the opportunity to pay off my debt or will I struggle with the financial burden?

also, I would definitely attend the ASWs if you can.

Thank you Audeamus! Considering these questions, I think NYU wouldn't be a bad choice after all..

A quick question! I have read through parts of the thread and tried the search function but I can't seem to find the email address where I should send a LOCI. Or is that something I should snail mail?

Could anyone help me out? :)
