Hey everyone,

Had a quick question that I was hoping someone on the forum might be able to answer. Was thrilled and humbled to received an alumni scholarship from NYU Stern upon admission, in the amount of $60,000, for the first year of study.

I was also offered a full-tuition scholarship to another, peer program however, and so in weighing my decision, I couldn't help but wonder what, if any scholarship aid I might be able to receive for the second year at Stern. In talking with Admissions/Financial Aid, there is additional scholarship money awarded for second-year students, but it's not determined/awarded until the summer following the first year.

As you all will likely understand, it's challenging to make a decision with certainty in one offer, and a lot of unknows regarding the other. Does anyone, by any chance, happen to know how frequently such scholarships at NYU Stern are renewed for the second year? Or how frequently such recipients receive additional aid? Just trying to have as much of an understanding of the proverbial "odds" as possible, before making a final call. Having that same amount of aid for year two, rather than having to pay the full $70,000 tuition, obviously is a big factor in any decision.

If anyone might have any added info, it'd be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

I'm in the same position - did you ever find out about how frequent it is to get a renewed scholarship for the second year if you are a recipient for the first year? Financial Aid wasn't much help...

Yeah, I'm trying to talk to financial aid one last time, but I get the sense that unfortunately, the reality is simply going to be that the 2nd year scholarship remains unknown, and you just have to dive in, not knowing if there'll be any additional support. (Which is truly less than ideal, obviously, but I don't think there's any sort of assurances coming.)

You have to blindly hope that everything will be fine. Or try to clarify with the responsible.
