After reading the first 8 pages of Case of a Lifetime, my blood is boiling. :evil:

Yep. I'll actually be a bit late probably. I hope they don't kick me out for it.

Has anyone been able to get financial aid on the phone? Every time I call it goes to voicemail, and the woman who responds to my emails never gives me complete answers to my questions. I'm so frustrated!!! Does anyone have a direct number for a senior financial aid administrator? SOS!

Call the main financial aid office in the Bronx at 718-817-5069. They may keep you on hold for a while but will eventually answer all your questions. Just don't let them shoo you off. Tell them that the ls financial aid office cannot see your complete file because of their new system, which is exactly what is going on.

Lady gets sentenced to life in prison based on a single witness's highly questionable identification of her as having been at a gas station the day the gas attendant was murdered. This is a page turner.

Haha, yeah, I just finished it. It's quite unsettling. Guess criminal defense isn't for me! :? I can see why Smith felt the need to write a book about it. That case may not have stripped Smith of her freedom like her client, but it obviously left a deep, painful mark on her she's never going to shake off. And how could you? It's horrible to feel helpless like that when so much is at stake.

Just got the Intro to the Study of Law book. Definitely not a page turner. Still wish this book didn't cost so much, but I can see that the use of many different journal articles upped its price.

Rejected from BU waitlist. That really leaves BC as the only thing that I would potentially consider over Fordham.

:cry: I'm sorry, geo. You might hear from BC at the last second, but then again, the thing we both discussed with DB might also happen.

You're lucky! They don't even answer my e-mails and I still don't have my tuition bill!!

I accidentally called financial aid instead of my super a few days ago and they answered on one ring! Unfortunately it was a waste of an answer because I didn't need to talk to them. Try right when the office opens?

I also only get voicemail, and they still haven't returned my calls. It's like pulling teeth with that email person, but she/he does eventually respond. I'm pretty sure they don't like me though :?

Case of a Lifetime is a great read. I'm quite thankful for that. It's very serious, thought-provoking stuff. I can see why it was chosen for Orientation.

I wish they'd post the Legal Process syllabus so I can intersperse my narrative reading with the dryer stuff...

Thanks! I didn't find a course schedule because I'm apparently not registered, but I did find out that I am in Section 5.

EDIT: In order to find out your section, follow the instructions linked by ag123 all the way through step 5. Instead of clicking on the registration link, click on the student records link, then click on the view student information link. Your section is listed next to "Block."

FT.

The sched looks a little weird to me:
Torts (Conk) Mon 10:30-12:20, Wed 10:30-11:50, Thu 9:30-10:50
Property (Macey) Tue 9:30-10:50, Wed 2-3:50, Fri 11:30-12:50
Criminal (Marcus) Tue 2-2:50, Thu 2-3:50
Writing & Research Wed 9-9:50, Fri 9-10:50

Doesn't seem too bad though... and I don't know anything about the professors

It isn't good! How will we see our classes if we aren't registered?
