Re: NYU c/o 2022 Applicants

Based on a quick read of the intent to enroll form at NYU and the scholarship acceptance conditions, we do not have to withdraw pending applications in order to accept a scholarship offer. Can anyone confirm this? Still waiting on a few schools and not sure whether to send a request for an expedited...

Re: NYU Students/Grads Taking Questions

Could anyone please explain the significance of being “affiliated” with a center or institute at the law school? Part of a scholarship that I have seen included the ability to affiliate with such a program before you enroll. It sounds like a play at the concept of “institutional support” in addition...

Re: Which would you choose?

Congrats on the awesome options!! I think the posters above have fleshed this out enough that I won’t be able to help much, but I wanted to drop in anyway to say I love your username. You deserve $$$$ for that alone. Good luck!

Re: NYU c/o 2022 Applicants

Do we have any idea how much leverage a Harvard acceptance offers for financial aid negotiations? I assume it could raise $ —> $$, but what about $$ —> $$$ or $$$ —> $$$$?

At what point would it be an insult to NYU to try and increase a scholarship with H as your best bargaining chip?

Both ideas are thoroughly foolish. If full tuition at Columbia isn't good enough for you then you probably shouldn't bother with law school.

Re: Harvard Students and Grads Taking Questions

Does anyone know if MBB still actively recruits law students on campus? And does anyone know what it would generally take to get an interview?

Anyone else with relatively high numbers and an early app being ghosted? Figure I'm headed for the WL, just kind of wonder why. Similar boat. I want to say that, although I had a good interview, I may not have shown as much interest as I did with my other interviews. Also been trying to figure it w...

Checking in! Columbia noted that they’d like an addendum if you’ve taken more than once, so be aware of that.

How worried should I be about not having got an interview request still? I'd put my #s at competitive-but-not-guaranteed, myLSN 86%.
Did you ED? Correct me if I’m wrong here, but I didn’t think interviews were necessary for admission to Columbia? I wouldn’t stress yet (didn’t get one either).
