NYU Fall 2015

Hi pjvh,
I don't believe admissions offices communicate with each other. My advice is to ask those schools for an extension as you're waiting to hear from NYU.
You could also look into some deposits schools require upon accepting an offer and whether those are refundable. Good luck = )

Thx bokzzz!

I'm going to try and call NYU later today and ask them how many people are on the wait list to get a better overview.

The normal deadline for accepting or declining an offer at NYU is 8th of April, so probably therefore no one has gotten from the wait list just yet. Once they have a clear view of how many people accepted they can send remaining offers to people on the wait list.

Thx dude~ I am waiting for a response from the NYU for Tax LLM. Why did you decline the offer if I may ask? It's because of no scholarship?

Just got an email letting me know I was added to the wait list.

I enrolled at GULC last week, that won't change, but I'm glad I finally heard from NYU and I can move on now.

Good luck everyone!

I'm still waiting for the decision.

You know what they say "No news is good" but who can tell. I hope I receive something soon.

I have been admitted to LLM (corporate law program) but without scholarship.

I would like to know if we have to apply separably for scholarship? and is there any funding options still available?

All LLM students are automatically considered for scholarships except for the Hauser, You must apply separately for that.

http://www.law.nyu.edu/graduateadmissions/scholarshipprograms

So if you haven't received a scholarship offer by now, you likely won't. Very expensive school to attend if you don't get any scholarships as the cost of living there + the tuition is very high.

My offer letter says " with your outstanding academic record and professional and personal achievements, you have earned this opportunity to learn from extra ordinary faculty, whose scholarship and expertise influence every aspect of legal thought and practice.

Does this mean I am awarded a scholarship?

Hi guys! I was wondering whether anyone has had an experience similar to mine. I received an email long before the decisions were made that the NYU Committee on Graduate Admissions had reviewed my application and that they had asked for my next semester grades (which was understandable, as my grades for the last submitted semester were terrible and a deviation from my record otherwise, so I assumed they wanted to see whether the trend continued.) On calling the Graduate Admissions Office, I was informed that my fall semester grades would finally decide the status of my application. There was no deadline set, and I was only told that I should submit them as soon as possible. Those grades only very recently became available. However, before I could send them to LSAC (as the email and phone conversation has told me to), I received an email informing me I'd been waitlisted. Thus my decision was made without the grades that had specifically been asked for (and which were indeed better than the ones before.) This seems to suggest that had I sent in the grades earlier (which I was not in a position to do, as when the University takes out results is not within my control), I may have received a different result. The first email sent to me by the Admissions Committee was essentially moot, as I'm in the same position I would have been in had they not sent it. And yet I may have been in a different position had only my grades come out earlier. I found this rather strange and was wondering whether anyone else also had a similar experience?

I am so sorry to hear this and no I haven't heard anything like this before. It doesn't surprise me though. If it is any consolation, I am going to reject NYU's offer and go with SLS so there will be another space open for someone.
