Will I have a better chance of receiving financial aid by applying early decision?
Thank you.

    Whoops, nevermind. After researching this question more, I found the answer.

    What was the answer you came to?

    Sadly, applying early decision won't improve my chances. Apparently, NYU gives financial aid based on an applicant's desirability.

    Depends on the school...my understanding is that Stern and Tisch for example, start at need -if no need, no $...if there is need then they give $ based on desirability...while others such as Steinhardt offer $ with no need...

    @drama2020 Steinhardt only gives money without need to music and art students--talent based scholarships. But these merit based talent scholarships without need are only given out to RD students. They are awarded in April. If you apply ED, you will not be considered for them.
