FWIW, even people accepted off the WL (especially splitters) got some money last year, so I don't think there's a point at which they "run out" of money. Good luck to the UR3-17s!

NYU is a dragon that lives on top of a pile of money (and owns half the village).

I can't load the status checker to see if my date changed. I blame you all out there constantly hitting refresh

Edit: still stuck at 12/13.

I know I'm probably going to be made fun of for asking such a stupid question, but how do you know if you'll get offered a scholarship? And what do you have to do in order to get one?

They offer named schollies that you'd have had to apply for before deadlines (gone now I think), other merit based schollies that you're automatically considered for, and need based grants that you'll have to fill out needaccess to be considered for.

ETA: I don't think people 'know' that they'll be offered a scholarship. I think it's more of an educated guess based on past cycles and other people's experiences.

YOU WILL GET IN! And then when you decide not to go to law school anyway, you'll feel good saying "No thanks" to NYU. :)

I have seen the website that allows you to check the status of your financial aid package. Do we receive an email when they make a decision?

Yes, you will receive an email with the link to the website asking you to log in and check your award.

Sent in my need access and Fafsa on February 11. I applied for no named scholarships. I am still "currently under review". I am losing patience.

There doesn't really seem to be anything inexplicable about being UR for months without word from NYU. They haven't released WL notifications yet. The huge majority of people who have been UR forever without word are in that group.

Schools that have been WLing all along and have still been sitting on some apps for months are a bit more strange, but NYU isn't in that group.

Assuming you're responding to Noodley, he's referring to financial aid.

Btw, weren't you going to "blow up their phone," Noodley?

I'm interested in how this turns out. If I get admitted, I'm gonna have a problem similar to yours.

Considering that Harvard is apparently not even gonna dignify me with an interview, I somehow doubt I'm gonna get into Stanford, or really any T10.

Then again, cycle isn't over yet, but I have a bad feeling.

Well, I guess it's safe to say all the Root invitations have been made by now?
