How's everyone's financial aid process going? I received my aid package when I got my acceptance letter on Friday. It stated it was a combination of merit and need worth $27,500. I just now received an email with a scholarship from a private donor that NYU put me up for worth $25,100. I called the financial aid office to clarify since I was confused and they mentioned that I should disregard the first amount and that the second amount has been confirmed plus that I'll be having "some money coming from Tisch" but that my award was explicitly NOT the 25k + 27K (which is a bummer...)

I emailed them yesterday though asking for an increase in amount based off being up for a fellowship at UCLA, but now feel embarrassed since nothing has been finalized, even though they sent me an award letter already. Really confused...

Be sure to join the tisch group if you haven't already.

 
I just recieved an email with an admission offer for the MFA/MBA dual degree program(previously on waitlist). I've already committed myself to another school so I'm giving up the spot. Don't give up hope yet, apparently they're still calling in more students!

Hi,

Can anyone remind me what the maximum running time of the visual submission was in this application year?

It would also be so helpful if anyone would be willing to share their application materials with me?

Thank you!
