    I sent an e-mail to NYMC regarding financial aid yesterday. They said that they give out 50 15,000 scholarships to first year students by May 15th. Would have gotten one with your initial acceptance or can they send a letter later saying you got one? I'm not getting my hopes up but it would sure be nice.

    You think they would give one to someone who they put on the waitlist?

    I don't know. I just want to know if scholarships are usually given with your acceptance notice or later on.

    Scholarships are given with acceptances and after. They usually come with acceptances late in the process, to make sure those kids come there (instead of taking kids off WL). After I received my acceptance to downstate, I called NYMC, to tell them I'd prefer to come to NYMC but couldnt afford it (Little did they know I was going to come either way). A few days later I got a call from one of the deans and was offered a scholarship. Basically it doesnt hurt to ask, worst is they say no, best is you get 15k for 4 years. Best of luck

    I called the admissions office and was told that to be considered for the 15,000 scholarship you must fill out your parents info on the FAFSA, and they do it mostly by need based. Its a real expensive school, I think 60k a year (including living), 15k only makes a slight dent.
