Just received my award! And still waiting on the pizza box, not at all near New York....

Congrats on receiving aid :) We have similar numbers and you give me hope.


Thanks! :) The best advice I can give you is to be poor ;)

Oh :oops: .... :) Yeah, probably, I think you could add my parents and I up and you might hit poverty level, so thanks NYU!

I missed a call from NYU admissions today and they left a voice mail about wanting to discuss my waitlist status... Has anyone else gotten a call?

3-5 years in BigLaw is the goal. Basically, I made my choice between CCN based on NYC/DC biglaw placement. Columbia won't really be sticker anyways. Assuming 2L SA, I'll graduate with about $160k+interest if you add my parent's contributions.

Nope, but last year calls such as the one you received were followed shortly after (few days) by admit calls, so seems like GREAT news for you!

+1

This is good news. They (in the past) made a round of calls to gauge interest before accepting people. Maybe they saw how many are declining in the first round and are shifting to interest calls again :lol:

Has anyone noticed a trend so far in NYU's picks off the waitlist? Are they going for LSAT, GPA, Gender, Regionality, etc?

Dean's scholarship, $25k/$25k/$12.5k. Oh boy, really tough decision as my Penn scholarship is higher and COL in Philly is cheaper, but NYU is NYU.

I have a lot of thinking to do later :shock:

I promise I'll decide as quickly as possible in case I decide to decline, so this money gets back to your guys asap.

PM'd. Anyone else that wants #'s I'll PM as well. But below both medians. I think it's due to financial need despite the fact they call it merit, most of my other scholarships have been need (except for lower T14's).
