NYU LLM 2018-2019 Applicants


Question: I have been admitted and haven't been offered a scholarship. If I decide to decline my admission now, and trying again next year (19-20), how does it affect my chances on being admitted next time? Do they increase or decrease? Also, would it be more likely to get a scholarship? I haven't applied to other universities and I might decide to try NYU again next year if I don't get a scholarship until enrollment deadline

I can only tell you from my personal experience. I was admitted in 2014 while I was still in law school. I had to decline the offer because I was given no scholarship. I had only applied to NYU so I didnt go anywhere else. 3 years (and a lot of work experience) later I applied again -- this time I secured admission and the dean's scholarship. But in these 3 years the cost of living in NYC has increased and so has the tuition fee. I have also spent the last 3 years fully immersed in human rights work which leaves me with very little savings. So I will have to decline the offer and the scholarship (this time) again. Anyhow I don't think it will reduce your chances in any which way just because you refused the offer once, however to get scholarship you may have to show some growth in your work profile...also bear in mind that next year will have a different pool of applicants with diverse resume.. so you never know.

I could wait for another 3 years and maybe... third time is a charm? But I did what @Kavovic9 rightly suggested ... applied to other places as well and got equally promising offers that I would love to pursue.

So if you want NYU badly I would say you need to show growth in your work profile as its a merit based scholarship.

I am yet to hear back from NYU and it's simply beyond me. I think the fact that I ve lost hope of getting in, enables me not to care and serves as a coping mechanism

The wait is real... I asked them for an answer because of other deadlines and got the standard answer. On the bright side, I have another brazilian friend that said her due date for acceptance was April 2 and she declined. One more spot!

I did not receive a financial aid offer therefore I have declined my offer of admission from NYU in favour of a full scholarship offer elsewhere, therefore there is another spot now available for anyone still waiting.

They do both pretty much at the same time. So, unless you keep refreshing the status page, it is likely that you'll receive an email before you see any changes there. Good luck!

I have a question: what happens if I accept the admission, and then decide to withdraw from the program afterwards? I know I will lose 500USD, but are there any other implications? Am I on the hook for any other amount of money? Would it hinder my chances of being admitted if I decide to apply for an LLM againg in the future?

I ask this because I'm also applying to jobs, and could accept a job instead of getting an LLM
