NYU Tax Domestic Decisions!


It was never my intention to rub anything in. I honestly thought people would like to know how and when the scholarships came out. That's been an oft-debated topic on other threads and sites. I thought that, plus the irony of having not even heard anything from NYU, would make an informative post.

i was only joking...no harm done (I forget that tone doesn't post well to internet boards and I am sorry if I sounded harsh.)

On another note...any domestics receive rejection letters?

I didn't think you were rubbing it in ;)

I understand some's frustration though in hearing others getting in especially with money....I am one of them

Just NYU.

Most 3L's graduate, take the bar exam in July, then start the program afterwards, and get bar results in time for thanksgiving.

I'd imagine most employers would extend time to make a decision, and the ones that give you the 1 or 2 week deadlines - well that just tells you what you're going to be if you work for them.

I think the majority of NYU tax decisions are out by March - April, especially if you applied early. If I recall, there was a holdup with my recommendation on my file being complete.


Thanks for the information att333!

Waiting until May or later isn't too big of a deal if you are already out in practice, but if you are a 3L...that wait is stressful. How do you plan for a bar exam? Or a job? This fall I turned down an offer from my summer program (mainly b/c I didn't like the ppl I was working with), but I don't want to turn down any offers I recieve in the next month or so!

att333...did you apply to Georgetown or UF last year in late feb? If so, how long did it take to hear from them?

Thanks for all the info!

Hey guys, I've officially withdrawn my app from NYU and I'm going to G-town. I like to think I preemptively rejected myself. :-)

It's almost April. I haven't heard anything from NYU. Does it mean my chance is ZERO?

My friend didn't get into NYU until late April / early May last year. The wait was a killer.

In, although I can't decide whether to go. I'm around the top 5-6% at a T2, law review editor, non-tax related work expereince and legal experience. I only had one tax grade when I applied, a B in fed income, but I wrote a good cover letter where I explained that I had overextended myself that semester. I just took Corporate tax and expect somewhere I got something between a B+ and an A. My app went complete around March 15th. I was late because I wanted to be sure I liked corp. tax before I applied.

I liked tax and I'm interested in tax policy, and would ideally work for IRS, maybe after a tax court clerkship. I think if I went that route first, and later decided I needed to make money, firm doors would probably be open.
Any sort of scholarship would probably seal the deal, but I haven't actually gotten the acceptance yet, I just followed the link from this thread and logged in successfully.

I'm acting on the assumption that around top 1/3 get big firm jobs, a handful get tax court clerkships, 1/4 go to accounting firms, 1/5 go to IRS, and the rest are unemployed. Obviously, this is unscientific, but it seems fair based on waht I've read.

I haven't heard anything yet, and my application was complete at the end of January. If I do get into NYU, I'm hoping for a $250 scholarship to cover the cost of the deposit I already paid to Georgetown.

I went complete around March 15th and STILL have not heard anything. Although, some went complete that same time and have been accepted -- I guess I should be scared now! I'm top 35% at a top 25 school, on law review and have a published article.

Has anyone heard anything? Or know someone who has been accepted? rejected? Or spoke w/ the admissions office about decisions?

The only helpful info I have is that the deposit deadline for people already admitted is May 1st, so I'd expect a second wave of acceptances shortly thereafter if the class isn't full.

You can also try to log onto the admitted students website....(https://its.law.nyu.edu/admitted/login/login.cfm?dest=/admitted/index.cfm).

I'm from a T4 law school, have a 3.4 overall gpa, and a 4.0 in 12 credits of tax classes. Was on law review and also had a great tax-related summer job.

Good luck!
