I was going through the applications looking for people who may have applied to NYU and USC and gotten into both and hoping they choose USC. LOL

They just sent estimated costs of tuition and it's literally 100k a year without scholarships/aid (including their overpriced housing which tacks on about 30k, which I wouldn't live on campus because heck no). But still!

When you said financial aid do you mean loan or scholarship? We have a new scholarship awarded amount field if you feel like sharing in your Application on our database but no worries if you don't.

Honestly the sticker shock for tuition--although I knew it was coming... is a lot. I got a bit of financial aid, but woof.
Right???!! I know I’ve officially lost my mind because I’m eager and hoping and praying... to get hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt for this program LOL 🤣😱

Well, I'm going to AFI and I know it's hella expensive. If you want to be the Bonnie to my Clyde, we can go 50-50. Just saying!

This is giving me so much optimism right now! Not giving up yet! Here's hoping we'll be classmates! 🤞🤞🤞

I'm feeling the same way ... happy to be in but the cost is crazy ... looks like $66,000 before any living expenses/housing. Im scrambling to try and figure it out ... small scholarship.

Honestly the reality of it has sucked out a lot of the joy of getting in for me. It's likely I'll still go... RIP. But yeah. Yikes. Here we go, might as well gamble since the world is dying a heat death anyways. Sorry, too dark...

Oh wow. Yeah update your application with scholarship info if you can. I think that'll be helpful to people. 👍👍

Nice. You guys should create a Waitlisted 2021 thread for all the Waitlisted people from different programs.

We used to have a Waitlisted thread and a rejected thread for people to commiserate.
I'll do this tonight once I've been home alone long enough that my despair starts kicking in. :D

Actually one was already created.


Someone still needs to create a rejected 2021 thread.

Created one.


Also do I could share one of the best animated films of all time. 🤣
 
Hi all, I didn't know this forum existed. I got in! I only applied here, so... thank god.

Where is everyone seeing their financial aid info? I logged into NYU Home but I don't see it. Is it rolling out person by person?
