For merit aid that's not part of the special scholarships listed on their app, I think you just wait for them to contact you about it. Maybe you could try to negotiate with them if you get another offer.
From the Dean's Award page on the website:
"To be considered for a Dean’s Award scholarship, individuals must complete the NYU School of Law financial aid application. This application is available to all admitted students and may be accessed through the Admitted Students link. We encourage all admitted students to submit this application, including students who applied for a named scholarship program as part of their application for admission.
Institutional aid is awarded in amounts up to full tuition. Institutional aid may only be used at the School of Law.
Upon receipt of your completed financial aid application, the Committee on Admissions and Financial Aid will review the application together with your application for admission. You will be notified of any award(s) following the Committee's review.
The financial aid awarding process is done on an ongoing basis but is generally completed by early May."http://www.law.nyu.edu/financialaid/sch ... /index.htm
So I guess even if you applied for a special scholarship, you can submit another form (though the wording of this makes me think it's need-based aid rather than merit-based aid; I guess it could take both into account) once the Admitted Students site becomes available.
