Section 5 has MWR at 9 am. I figure being forced to wake up early 3/5 days will eventually get me up at 8 or 9 everyday. Otherwise, I would sleep until 12 or so. It'll probably be good for me.

I don't appreciate our one class on Tuesday being 2-3:50. It's almost as if I have to wait around all day for class to start.

I'm not crazy about section 2 scheduling either, 10am start everyday would be so much better than 9. But the good thing is that we don't ever have long stretches of straight class nor really long stretches of break really, plus only having one class on Wednesdays is great, it can be either be a good work day or a good relax/recharge day.

I believe edcrane was talking about Section 2's schedule. As in "section 3 'is greater than' section 2, in terms of scheduling."

I know, I was just saying I don't think section 2 is THAT bad.

So, NYU has five sections now. Does that mean that NYU admitted more students or does that mean each section will have fewer srudents than usual? I wonder if NYU admitted more students in order to pay for that professor's apartment...

they added a section to trim down the sizes of each section. I do not believe they increased the class size

Faculty evaluations are on that site...

Looks like Epstein has the lowest ratings of section 3, but the other two look great.



Lawyering Section 008 for me

Revesz said the sections were trimmed to 85 people each (ideally) at ASD. Down from 100 something

It begins. I guess I am going to buy my books on tues or wed. :cry: I was enjoying my vacation in the city.

By the way my blackboard link isn't up yet, do you have a link to this page you speak of?

The link is not on blackboard (mine's not up either yet). From the teacher's faculty profiles, there are links to the courses they are teaching this semester.

the syllabus says Fall 2007, but I think she probably just used last year's syllabus.

By the way, Cup, are you Section 3

Quick question: when/how do you find out what your student ID number is (the one that begins with N and is followed by 9 digits)?

Stavand: I am a middle child, section 3. Although the first assignment link may be correct, it was not intended for this year, because it says classes 2 and 3 are the following week from the first class, and I think that we have 2 classes, Wed and Thurs, the first week this year.

EdCrane: Go to home.nyu.edu and log in, click "Preferences" in the top right hand side, when new page loads your N# should be on the left of your screen.

Hi,

Just in off the waitlist. I've been living in NYC for the past two years (and in the village for the past year). Anybody still looking for a roommate? PM me!

Thanks :)

Sorry if this has been posted, but some of the profs have assignments up at http://www.law.nyu.edu/academics/course ... /index.htm

Adler and Fox both do for Section 2.

So if none of our profs are listed, no assignments?

Also, did they send out an e-mail with this link? I haven't been getting e-mails because some how they got my e-mail wrong.
