Named / special program scholarships aren't the only forms of aid though! Also it's better to skip the essays than force an essay trying to invent ways in which those special programs are a fit for you (at least, that was my reason).


That was my reason as well.

Personally I'm not crazy about the idea of being financially obligated to a particular career path.

I seriously considered the Root Tilden Kern because I know that I eventually want to do public interest work. But in the end, I felt that the requirements were a little too rigid for me.

At least everyone is going through the same thing and this has happened in previous years. It would be so much worse if people were getting acceptances while the rest of us were in UR status.

If you want, you could put the actual essays on the poll (I think there's an option for voting more than once). It would capture a different concept, but could be interesting as well.

Ugh NYU. Way to get my hopes up for a decision this week with that weird status-check-message-masquerading-as-decision.
