$$$ @ NYU, Columbia ?
« on: June 27, 2005, 06:40:29 AM »
Does anyone know what kind of credentials are necessary to get significant merit aid (say, half or full tuition) from NYU and/or Columbia?

Thanks.

It varies. If you and you parents qualify, you can get need-based aid from both that will be roughly similair. If you don't, you'll have to hope for "merit-based" aid, which can be a named scholarship (NYU has a ton of those, both big and small; I can only remember the Hamilton from Columbia) or nameless-merit-aid (I've heard columbia will give some of this out when presented with offers from other schools).
