NYU@NUS: application and scholarship


The rep there was quite positive about that the reps are meeting May. As far as the SOLAR pass is concerned they are yet to ask us and then they will forward that info to NUS who in turn would apply for the student pass. She said that the formalities regarding that will be completed by the end of this month. Wonder how when they are yet to ask us. I without asking them forwarded all the info including my pic...would suggest you to do the same as she said that my info has been forwarded by her to NUS and its NUS who needs to response. Accomodation is still a worrying factor...even I am confused about that.

Another thing I am quite sure that they are still offering. They offered different deadlines to all of us to confirm the offer I am sure many have rejected the offers and that's why they are still offering.

This is the reply I got from the rep in NY.

"My colleagues in Singapore will be in touch with you regarding the Student Pass process. I understand that you have sent them the required information, rest assured that you will receive more information about the process and what is to be expected from you.

Please note that my colleagues in Singapore will also be sending you information about course registration. You should expect to receive information in mid-March. As noted in the Admissions packet and on the Admitted Students Web site, orientation takes place May 5-7. You should plan on arriving a couple days before to settle in before the start of orientation and classes.

In terms of tuition and fees, the Office of Student Financial Services will be updating the information as soon as it is available. I would encourage you to review last year's student expense budget keeping in mind that the increase for this year will be between 3 and 5% (http://www.law.nyu.edu/financialaid/nyunus/index.htm). Should you have specific questions about payment methods or plans, you should feel free to contact their office directly (law.finaid@nyu.edu)."

And this one is from the rep in Singapore

"We have already applied for your student pass in SOLAR but have not sent out an email as there is still some pending matters that need to be taken care of. We note our timeline and we would let students know this month of the subsequent procedures. Please bear with us as we get the outstanding matter sorted (ie. medical examination information). I expect to hear from NUS by this week. If its still unresolved, I would keep all of you updated on the status.

As mentioned at this point, the tuition fees figure for academic year 2010/2011 is not finalized yet. However, you may wish to refer to the estimation at: http://www.law.nyu.edu/financialaid/nyunus/index.htm
Note that all fees (except health insurance) is paid to NYU. The billing cycle is twice; the first half is to be paid by beginning of summer term in May and the next cycle is by early August. For more information, you may wish to refer to: http://www.nyu.edu/bursar/payment.info/dates.html The payment deadlines on the website also apply to our NYU@NUS students, but the unofficial payment deadline is the first day of classes: Summer term will be 10 May and Fall/Semester 1 will be 10 August. If you are not able to make each terms full payment by the first day of classes, you should contact NYU Law Schools Student Financial Services directly in advance to work out how you can make your payments.

For more information on payment modes, please refer to: http://www.law.nyu.edu/financialaid/bursarandbilling/payment/index.htm and http://www.nyu.edu/bursar/payment.info/methods.html
Your NYU@NUS Deans Awards, will be offset in the student billing in two halves.

Note that Health insurance is paid to NUS and will be billed at the start of each semester (summer, NUS Semester 1 & NUS Semester 2). Deadline to make payment would be about a month after the student is billed before the late charges kicks in. You can make payment at the NUS Student Services Centre, or via https://myisis.nus.edu.sg for online payment when you have officially registered in NUS."

And this is the reply I sent to her...

"Just wished to once again clarify with you that (as mentioned by you during our conversation), the tuition fee for 2010-2011 will probably be decided upon in May, when the representatives of both the universities meet. Was just wondering even if keep one keeps buffer for the first tranche it may be difficult to calculate as to how much
would be the first sum of deposit. Two years back in 2008-2009 (when I had an offer for the same programme and the same award), if I remember correctly, the tuition fee had been around USD 38,000 and for last
year i.e. 2009-2010 it had been USD 43,855. Assuming, if there is a fee hike of even USD 2,000 for this year, the same shall be around INR 96,000/- and arranging such an amount at a short notice may not prove to be easy especially when the admitted student is out of his home
country. I understand that the universities may give us a grace period to deposit the tuition fee, still it may be an uneasy task for the students."

Sorry just forgot to mention the x-change rate fluctuations.

Their reply to my aforementioned e-mail...

"I understand that you have written to the Office of Graduate Admissions as well. My colleague, Lauren, has mentioned that there may be an increase between 3 to 5%. I am sorry that it cannot be any sooner as it's the decision from NYU (not NYU@NUS office) as the tuition fees has to be in-line with the NYU LLM at New York City. Of course, we would let the students know as soon as we receive news. I have checked around further and I would say that for the first bill, it may come out to be about USD22,410 (tuition fees only) and the balance based on the actual tuition fees would be charged on the 2nd bill. Perhaps you could work based on that and use 5% increase to give you the necessary buffer at least for the first bill?

Yes, the tuition deposit of USD500 will be offset on your first bill."

Was just roughly calculating the total cost of the program for one year based on the estimated budget given for 2009-2010...even on deducting the scholarship award the cost would not be anything less than 1.7 to 1.8 million INR/-. Wonder how do people afford the programs at NYU...there the scholarships are n't many and cost of living is also more. Appears the cost there would not be anything less than 3.5-4 million.
