NYU Application 2020-2021

Just received Dean's Scholarship of $15K. UPenn offered $10K, UCLA $30K, Columbia $0, Berkeley $Pending.

It's a hard decision - if NYU are up for bargaining then I'll consider it! Right now it's looking like UCLA as I want to work in Los Angeles.


Did you get an email from Columbia? I'm still waiting on a financial aid decision...

Yeah it came with my letter of admission - said you're not going to get a scholarship. I wrote to Dean Polo re bargaining and other scholarships. She said nope...

Hi everyone! I just received the Gerard L. Wallace Fund Scholarship! I applied to the International Tax Program and was admitted on Feb 6, and I'm from Mexico.


Congratulations

Is it full tuition?

Hello guys! I read that some of the scholarship decisions have been released. I did not receive any email from NYU and I enrolled 9 days ago. I was granted very good scholarships from Vanderbilt, UCLA and Northwestern. I am wondering if I can still hope to receive it from NYU. I have some questions:
Does somebody know if, in the past, NYU released all its scholarship decisions on the same day? Also, now that I am enrolled, could I still hypothetically tell NYU (in order to bargain a little) that I received scholarships from other universities and that I am still considering other options that I did not decline yet? I know that would mean to lose my deposit fee but do you guys think it would be worth a try?

Yes!, if you see the last messages on page 13, Hauser scholarships were granted the last Thursday. However, nobody has written about Vanderbilt...

It is just a little bit weird that the one person just wrote her/his first post here and got accepted everywhere.
And the other thing is that last year there were a bunch of people who got a scholarship about 45k and also the note that they were in the "waitlist" for the hauser scholarship...

so maybe not all decisions are out about the hauser scholarship.... so maybe we should have some hope for it

I'm still waiting to hear from NYU regarding my application for the International Tax program.

My application was complete 20th December.

I emailed admissions a few days ago regarding scholarships.

They told me that if my application is successful by May I will still be eligible for scholarships.

Very confused indeed.

My application is also very strong.

Tough decision but if I were you I would go for NYU. It is not just about better ranking which is mainly based on JD statistics, but also the reputation of NYU and the fact that most LLM graduates end up practicing in NYC. With some additional costs, it is a long-term investment and worth it if you can afford it.

It depends on what you are going to study. If you would like to study environmental law/energy law I would say UCLA. I got 15k scholarship from NYU but I am going to decline because of its policy and terms. I don't want to withdraw other applications...

Scholarship Policy and Enrollment Terms
Our merit-based scholarships are intended to assist those whose first choice is NYU. In making this offer, we are committing our most precious material and reputational resources—one of our prestigious merit awards—to you, as someone of great accomplishment and for whom we hope NYU is the most desirable place to complete your master’s degree. Therefore, the Committee requires that you are not a deferred student at another institution, withdraw from all admission offers you have received, and not initiate any new applications nor request reinstatement at an institution from which you have withdrawn in order to accept the award and enroll at NYU. It is our expectation that you honor the terms to which you will agree when you accept the award. We rely on your good faith and professional integrity in this matter.

Received a dean's graduate award for 25k. Applied for domestic tax program, and accepted around the end of January. Not sure whether to take it or not, given the uncertainty in the job market because of corona. Stats for those curious:

T25 JD
top 15%
law review
some tax work experience
