I am currently filling out the Financial Aid Application form for NYU grad film and I could use some guidance. How much is it reasonable to say we will need in institutional scholarship funding from NYU - meaning how much are they really willing to give? If you have any other tips on this matter please do let me know. Anything will be of use as I am unfamiliar with the US application process.
You should ask for however much you need. NYU is an expensive school and they know that, so they won’t think it’s crazy for applicants to ask for a large scholarship.

Took the advice and checked my vimeo analytics - no view at all. Since the interviews are coming up, does it mean I didn't get in or it's possible they just take it slow????

I learned from someone at another film school that their number of applications went up by 30% this year, so it’s very possible things were the same everywhere else and that things are moving slowly due to that. It may also help you to know that invitations for interviews went out primarily between Feb 8-18 last year, so I probably wouldn’t assume anything unless it’s after Feb 20...

If I remember correctly, before I submitted my slideroom app I believe there was like a statement I had to check off. It said something along the lines of "views may or may not be counted via Vimeo, even if someone actually viewed it." So, I think it may be a bit early to be worried :) Best to you!

Yea I remember seeing something like that when I was completing my application

Very possible and very reasonable. I would wait till 20 to see then.
