They mentioned at the open house tonight that the EWP won't be available for MFA students anymore.
What WanderingTree said is pretty much correct—if you're lucky and get a merit-based fellowship, they tell you that during the acceptance call. If not, you can apply for the various teaching/community outreach fellowships available, but there's no guarantee you'll get one and you can only apply after you accept NYU's offer (meaning you're gambling a little bit by accepting if your attendance hinges on aid beyond the 50% that everyone gets). If you get no aid above and beyond the 50% tuition remission, you'll end up paying around $20,800 ($1,300 per credit x 32 credits to graduate / 2), not including food/housing/&c, which is pretty steep.
You do have the option of working part- or full-time during your MFA studies, however, so long as both your employer and NYU are okay with it.
Hans Landa: You'll be shot for this!
Aldo Raine: Nah, I don't think so. More like chewed out. I've been chewed out before.
