NYU Cost


Alawyer
I have seen in NYU website about the cost as

The 2008-09 Federal Student Expense Budget is:

Tuition 42,890$

Health/Registration/Technology Fees- 1357$

Room and Board 20593$

Federal Loan Origination Fees 410$

Books/Supplies 1100$

Health Insurance - Basic Plan 1388$

Total
$ 67738( excluding personal expense)

But what do you think about the personal expense as in the website they have written 2287$ per month that means 20,000 for 10 months..

Means NYU will cost us

approx 87,000$

Is that true?

The "personal expense" element corresponds to "Room and Board" above (see second paragraph of the linked page). The USD 67k total does not exclude personal expense.

Seems to be an incredibly low amount. More realistic will be an all-incl of about 80k$ I think.

Can someone who has been there done that tell us exactly what the expense would be for the entire year including everything, tuition, books, facilities, personal expenses (standard) etc etc...

How easy is it to get scholarships/tuition waivers? 80k seems to be a lot!

Santa was absolutely right. I wrote to NYU asking them the expected budget and was told that one can expect a rise of about 5% from the budget of the previous year which makes it about 72k. Mind you this is strictly the academic budget and does not take into account the other personal expenditure. So overall, it's about 80kish. I also wrote to them about waivers and was told that as a policy they do not grant waivers. Scholarships are awarded along with the offer itself which means if you've not heard from them as yet probably you've not been awarded a scholarship.

This is one of the factors why I am leaning towards LSE. I have a couple of days to decide!

I didn't know that! I was planning to apply for NYU next year and I was working on the assumption that like any other top law school, they have financial aid - I'd be really upset if they don't provide for any grants as part of financial aid. Anyone care to clarify please? :(

I'm in the same situation ruleoflaw...
however, in order to accept LSE we just have to tell them we accept, don't we ? I find it a bit "light" !

@ Nicolas
I hold a conditional offer so I have to just tell them I accept and meet the condition!!! LSE is a very attractive option on account of its reputation and the fact that it's cost effective. I don't aspire as such to work in NY. I want to return to India or work in London (for which a US LLM may be more beneficial, I am aware). But my priority is to come back home, and if need be I can always do a second LLM in the US. But all that is just a little too far fetched at the moment. Are you paying the NYU deposit? or Have you done that already?

nah, not yet, but I might do so just today !

I kinda share your views, and I don't really know where I would like to work... however, from what I've heard, working in London is quite rare, even with a UK (or US) LLM

I answered to your priv. msg !
