Yes that's UR2. There are anywhere between at least 0 and 4 changes. Nothing to be read into it.

Not much NYU action today, huh? There was one UR update, so we know they're working.

Come on, NYU! Spread some more love!

Does anyone have the link to that site where we can check on our financial aid decision progress? For some reason I can't find it in this thread now or on the site. Thanks!

I think it's been posted before over in the NYU Accepted thread.

I think I'm gonna stop coming on this website. I'm getting too upset. Already changed my profile description. I think I'm having the worst cycle ever for someone with my numbers. The months of silence it looks like i'm just heading for every waitlist that exists. I quit TLS, i quit law school applications, I quit.

ETA: Just realized this was my 100th post. Very fitting for it to be a frustration post. Sorry for complaining

Cycle ain't over yet, brah. If all the info in your profile is up to date, nothing out of the ordinary has hit yet, except the straight rejection (as opposed to WL) from Penn. You'll be fine.

I'm a bit confused as to how the merit- or need-based scholarship process works. I've filled out the Need Access and FAFSA applications but aside from listing NYU as a school I may attend on both of those websites, is there anything else I need to do to alert NYU that I've filled out the applications?

If you're paranoid like me, log in at this page: https://faaps.law.nyu.edu/studentmain.html
Within two days after my acceptance it registered that my application was complete. All I did was complete the FAFSA and Need Access (which I had done before my acceptance. If you did not complete them until after you were accepted you might have a longer delay before they register on FAAPS).

You're a lifesaver. Looks like my financial aid application is currently under review. Thanks!

Received my scholarship package! Only $15K/year but I'm pretty excited to get some money from NYU. I don't know if this is standard for my numbers or lower than usual yet and worth trying to make larger but I'll wait to be concerned about that.

BTW I never submitted FAFSA, only Need Access on 2/7, and they had it ready a week later. If I submit FAFSA now will that make any difference or is the determination final?

Good luck everyone!

Congrats!! FAFSA is for federal need-based aid, so that won't make difference in NYU's package for you, but it will impact whether you're eligible for Federal grants, and which type of Federal loan you're eligible for.

You give me a lot of hope. If I get $15k from NYU I will be VERY excited.

If I get $1k from NYU I will be very excited.

Any ideas for what the turn around time is after you submit FAFSA an NeedAccess?

If you didn't apply to a named scholarship, it could be anywhere between a week and god only knows. The first big wave of notifications went out on 2/8 with another one last week and most people had only submitted it a week or two earlier. No idea whether that's a hard and fast rule though.

My current financial aid status says "Application in final stage of review" I submitted last Thurs. Does anyone know if this means I should be receiving notice pretty soon?

From what we can tell, the applications move to "final stages" pretty quickly, then they hang out there for a while. If you didn't apply for a named scholarship, you could hear this week or next.

How'd they inform you of this amount?
