Harvard 2012 decision


Natasha06
I have received a full tuition scholarship from NYU last week and have to decide till 19 of march. Yesterday I informed HLS about it and asked about my application status. Now they want me to send verification, that means scanned copies of the NYU offer (especially scholarship), to them. My question is, can I do that? I am not sure if it is ok to give official NYU documentation to other universities? What do you guys think?


i think u should send it asap! i mean there no bar on populating an offer letter addressed specifically to u!

martin, I think it is a common procedure to follow when you ask for an expedited decision.

Martin, they are asking me to do the same thing at Columbia.. i must send the official offer and the scholarship award.

That makes me sad, though... because Columbia has already sent many admission offers, it may be a bad sign..

Thank you for your quick answers!
You all think that it is a common procedure and that NYU won't have a problem if I send their official documents around?! I am just asking if NYU would be mad at me if they get to know...

Yes, @martin7, NYU would be mad at you. They would put up black and red banners with "We give you a place and full-tuition scholarship... And you go to Harvard?" on them. Police officers would be on the watch for you, if you decide to visit the campus.

I am facing the same question, but how can you tell? I mean, if two universities are asking for such documentation, that may mean that they wouldnt be mad if you sent their own offers to another school. So, maybe, NYU wont be mad either..
I think I am going to send them... but now, after listening to you, I am feeling uncertain about it..

You are over-thinking it. There is no such thing as an "academic black list". They just wanna proof of your statements. Just this. There is nothing personal nor private in an admission letter. Scholarships are just strategic decisions. Universities aren´t declaring love to you.

Oh, if they gave you full scholarship... It ain't love, but it's pretty close. (:

man, im sorry if this might sound harsh but, are you really a lawyer? First thing you should do is to inspect the documents NYU sent you and see if it says CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION anywhere (which I doubt). If it doesnt, then no problem.. Relax.

It is just a strategic decision, made in a competitive environment, designed to atract the best international students (assets).

They give you a short deadline because, amongst other reasons, they don´t wanna give you much time to assess all other possibilities.

You should try to maximize your position by getting access to all information related to you.

You have short time, limited information, and is required to make a decision that will affect your next year, your purse, your life.

thank you for that smart idea! you won't believe it but i studied law! (thanks by the way for the friendly manner to give advice) nevertheless i am not always thinking about the legality of things only...but as it seems nobody here is seeing a problem with sending the offers out. so, at the end you might be right as i said and i was over-thinking it...

No prob sending around the offer. You are indeed worrying for nothing. It's common and NYU knows that people are doing it. Having said that, why do you not ask for an extension from NYU? They will likely grant it, as it seems that they really want you.
