NYU - Next in line for scholarships


Bla Bla

I'm not sure if it's true but it makes sense to me. I heard that those who are to be admitted with potential scholarships will hear from NYU soon after 9th March deadline for the first batch of scholarship holders. So, should it be good news for those who have not heard from NYU so far?? Especially those who possess great credentials and are sure that they should be offered a place at NYU.

I have the same exact confusion! This wait is killing me!

Can anyone throw any light on what the status of scholarships/aid is at present? Have all the Grotius/Vanderbilt scholarships been awarded? Full/ Partial Tuition waivers?

More importantly, what conclusion do we draw if we havent heard from NYU yet??

I have applied for the International Trade Regulation program. Any admission decisions made in that stream? Schols/waivers?

This is the way NYU works:

Hauser scholars: they are around 10 per year, with a separate waiting list of a few (given the chances of someone turning down a Hauser, this waiting list is very short). If someone doesn't accept the award it goes to one of the waiting list, but if the number of refusals exceeds the waiting-list they do not look for more people (i.e. they will never "upgrade" a Vanderbilt to a Hauser). I don't know what would happen to the guys in the Hauser waiting list if they run out of Hausers to award because there are few or none rejections (maybe they get a Vanderbilt?).

Varderbilt/Grotius/Kelsen scholars: they are 15-18 people, but there is no waiting list for these. If someone turns down a Vanderbilt NYU uses the money to help other applicants (half tuition award, 10k, etc.).

A member of the committee explained this to me.

Oh shit...does that mean there is no waiting list for even the Dean's Awards?? Let's say if a Dean's Award recipient from one country declines the offer...the money will not go to anyone else??????????? Seriously, that will ruin all my little bubbles of hope. I don't need Hauser or even the full scholarship...I only need some financial assistance.

When you said that there is no waiting list for Vanderbilt or so, how will they distribute the money declined by the first batch then since offers with scholarships have already been made? Shouldn't there be a list for those who are considered worthy of the financial assistance (obvioulsy not as worthy as the first ones who got and declined it)? It seems to me that people are likely to decline Vanderbilt than Hauser...having a waiting list for Hauser but not Vanderbilt, therefore, doenst make much sense to me.

Thanks!

I am actually wondering whether those who have been granted non-Hauser scholarship (incl. partial tuition fee waiver) applied for Hauser scholarship. If yes, I still have dim hope to hear from NYU positive news since I did not apply for Hauser and speculate that NYU might be only sending decisions to Hauser applicants for the first round who are in theory supposed to take NYU as the first choice and immediately accept the Hauser scholarship after being granted according to NYU's website.... This also explains why they are given such a short decision-making period. Of course in reality these Hauser applicants are possibly granted Hauser, or other scholarships or not at all.

I have to say I did not apply for Hause not because I did not take NYU as the first choice but because I was short of time then because of work....

I don't think that you'd be considered for a Hauser if you didn't apply for it in the first place. This is because the elements to be eligible for it contain both 1. NYU as your first choice and 2. The 3 essay questions. You can, at most, be eligible for the full-tuition waiver such as Vanderbilt though.

Thanks! I did not speculate people who did not apply for Hause would be considered for it. My question is just whether people who have received NYU admissions (with whatever schoarship or not) are those who applied for Hauser.

Same here. Please also note that, as far as I know, all of the people who received scholarships and awards, have to accept/refuse before Tuesday 5pm NY. You will therefore know if there is a waitinglist for scholarships (which I think makes a lot of sense) this week.
