Law School Admissions / Parents' Income and Financial Aid
« on: April 01, 2007, 06:05:23 PM »
Hi all. I was wondering what kind of effect your parents' income has on the financial aid you receive from schools. More specifically, my parents are definitely in a position to be able to afford law school for me; however, they expect me to cover most or all of the expenses for it. The schools that I am applying for aid to -- specifically NYU -- require disclosing parents' holdings and assets. Anyone know how it works if your parents can clearly pay for it? Am I looking at all loans and no institutional grants?

Thanks all.

Law School Admissions / NYU Financial Aid
« on: March 18, 2007, 03:52:15 PM »
Hi all - I'm kind of confused about the NYU financial aid process and was wondering if someone might be able to explain a few things for me. It says that to be considered for institutional aid, you have to submit the NYU Financial Aid application. If I am not trying to get government loans, is it sufficient just to fill out NYU's form, or are you required to fill out the FAFSA as well? Also, they say that they do not take your parents' income into consideration - does that mean that my package would be based exclusively on my income?

Thanks so much.

Choosing the Right Law School / NYU Student Body/Social Life
« on: February 17, 2007, 12:36:59 PM »
Hi all -

I was wondering if anyone familiar with or attending NYU would be able to answer a few questions for me. I was recently admitted to NYU but haven't heard a whole lot about the social experience there. Basically, I am coming right from UG and am interested in a collegiate, friendly, more laid-back feel. Are a lot of NYU students right from undergrad, or are there quite a few people who have been out in the working world for awhile? Also, considering I'd assume people are pretty spread out around NYC, is there a decent sense of community? My other option is UVA, which I've heard amazing things about in terms of a low stress, laid back close-knit community, and I was just hoping to get some similar insight on NYU.

Thanks so much for the help!

Visits, Admit Days, and Open Houses / Old US News Rankings

Hey all. I remember a while back someone posted an excel sheet that compiled a lot of the old US news rankings. I looked but couldn't find the post, does anyone happen to have that spreadsheet? Or know where I can find rankings from previous years?


Law School Admissions / Still Nothing from Columbia?

Just wondering how many people went complete around mid-December (or earlier) and have still heard nothing at all from Columbia - no ding, no reserve, no hold, etc. Anyone else in this boat?

Law School Admissions / Boalt Application Problem
« on: December 24, 2006, 09:41:15 PM »
Hey guys, Merry Christmas.

Quick question about the Boalt app. I just went to submit it on LSAC, and as I did I chose to pay the electronic fee with my credit card. But on the bottom, before I could click checkout, it kept telling me to sign & print the certification letter. So I clicked OK, went to checkout, paid...

Now I'm going back and actually trying to print out the certification letter, but it's not showing up. Is it not required that you submit a letter if you just pay online? Any idea why this was popping up and making me click OK if now it's not letting me find a certification letter?
