Hi,

I am also sailing in the same boat. You need not do anyhting at this point of time. They will send you all information regarding the loans in month of April. Orientation is staring from August 2nd and classes in Sept 1st week. I talked to admission office just now. Do you mind sharing scores with me? When did you interview at BU?

Good luck,
Nidhi

Hi Tweety,

You need not apply for loans before March1 . I called the lady yesterday. She said you need not do anything now. And thats right. I am in contact with other students too who accepted at NYU. We just sent them a check of 1000$ in Jan. Thats it.

I was interviewed at BU on April 10 2003. I am still on the waiting list. They atre crazy. My part1 is 89 toefel 260 and GPA 3.43. They will start reviewing the applications now as they are done with the interview process yesterday. Should hear from them soon positive or negative whatever.

Good luck,
Nidhi

Hey Tweety,

I am on F1 over here. But my brother is a green card holder. So he will cosign for me. I also called BU today. They will be mailing the letters on monday. We cannot apply for the loans before june, no earlier than 2 months.

Whats is your Visa status? You are a guy or a gal?

Good luck,
Nidhi

Hi tweety,
I am also accepted at NYU. I cannot apply for fafsa but when we spoke to the financial advisor she said to those who are greencard holder or citizen can apply for fafsa right away before getting acceptance or rejection letter.
She also mentioned that it takes time for them to reply so do it soon.
I think if you are finally planning to join NYU and not waiting for reply fron other schools then go ahead and apply for fafsa today itself.

regards

Ketu

As far as I know it does not matter if you apply for fafsa now, I think you have to put in the highest amount so its not a problem if you ask them for less later. I mean when you get in BU or Upenn.
also Bu has given us some forms after interveiw for loan, did they give you the same?
I havent gone through them but surely will go through and let you know.

regards

Hi tweety,

Congrats on your acceptance in NYu. As far as i know one is eligible for FAFSa only with a completed green card cos they ask for your registration no. in the FAFSA application. I guess you have completed finger printing process atleast by now to be eligible. Also,If you are planning to apply for FAFSA i would highly advice you to apply as early as possible . NYu advises its students to apply before march 1st so that you get what you are eligible for, before funds fade out. I also read in the dental forum that one can write the names of all the possible schools you might be attending in the FAFSa application. Why dont you do like that? P.S - I will also be attending NYU this fall & hope to meet you there.

Tweety,
Let us know if you are able to file FAFSA without actual GC approval. I have an Alien Registration # and have filed fingerprints too. So we are on the same boat. Let us know your experience. When I inquired I got the information that, we have to be Permanent Resident or citizen to fileFAFSA.

Thanks.

Hi All,

Did anyone get their Student ID from NYU ?
I was told that the financial aid award letter/package would contain the Student ID and other information for International/H4 students to apply for Private loans.
Did anyone start applying for Private loans for NYU ?
Please let me know ...
I am still waiting for my Student ID ....

Cheers,
Cherry.

and about the financial aid package, i went to NYU on monday and lady from financial aid told me that they havent mail financial aid package yet and we will get that soon.and that package would contain all the information about how much aid we will get from FAFSA and how much we have to take loan and all that, whatever correlates your status.

hi smi,
I think you have to get it before june 1st because form june 1st onward we can register on torch tone phone. and that requires a student ID, so go ahead and call the office so they will give your ID.

Stomat
I did recieve a fianancial aid package long back. you can call and ask them to resent it to you.
btw are you applying for federal and private loan or only for private loan?

Hi Mepa,

I am also waiting for the award letter from Financial aid office to apply for Private loans. Please let me know if you find out anything.

Also does anyone know the exact amount needed for first year (Tuition, Housing, instruments etc..,) ? They said that the tuition fee might increase by 5% this year.

- Cherry.

hi all,
i got my financial aid packet yesterday. It contains all information we need.
cost for the first year is $82,000 including tutuions, instruments, boarding, health insurance, personal expences and everything.
and you will also get to know that how much you can get from federal loans-subsidized and unsubsidized if you are eligible and how much you will have to take from the private loans.
i already have sent them my medical reports so i dont know whether its necessary to get the financial aid packet or not.
