Sorry, biased cause I see you around most.

No worries! If he doesn't want to helm the fantasy league anymore I would be happy to be the new organizer anyway

I'm paying $840 for a 1BR on Dryden. That includes electric, heat and water. I did a lot of shopping around, and this one was an absolute steal. All the other ones in the area are $1,000+.

Oh wait, no it's cool, I have a whole year to drown my sorrows with you and only a little time of not being in Ithaca left.

hey guys! i'm too lazy to sift through 66 pages so bear with me if this question has already been thrown out there...

is the AOP worth attending? do most people who are invited attend?

i've already seen ithaca so i don't know how much i'll have to gain getting used to the surroundings-wise from the extra week other than being able to check out the bar scene; will there be much academic benefit, do you think, or will it just burn me out faster?

I believe it's actually not run "officially" by CLS but it is a program that got started a few years ago as a sort of "joint venture" of various CLS identity groups. Now it's just kind of a tradition. I wouldn't take too much issue with it either way. If you feel insulted, don't go. If you feel as though you're not included, just show up. I'm sure they would welcome you.



the academic orientation program is an "official" cls program, funded in full by the school, and run by faculty members as well as representatives from various student diversity groups.

as you will learn from almost any former participant (myself included), aop really doesn't provide participants with any academic advantage over non-participants. rather, aop was first created to establish a welcoming environment for minority students in what might otherwise have felt like a rather unwelcoming environment.

historically, the minorities represented at aop have been underrepresented at law schools across the country, and especially at schools like cornell. while it might seem a little strange now, imagine being one of only 2 or 3 african american students among a sea of wasps in the 1980's. aop aims to reduce feelings of isolation, by connecting minority students, and also to reduce feelings of being an "outsider," by allowing those students to arrive on campus and get settled in first.

in short, aop's goal is to lessen any psychological burden that often comes with being a minority student in higher education. the fact that, as a minority, you might not feel that burden is perhaps a testament to the effectiveness of such programs.

so, to participants who are insulted for being included, know that the law school does not think that you're stupid and need an academic "boost"; and to non-participants who feel that minority students are receiving an unfair advantage, consider that, on top of the general anxiety of starting law school that you'll feel, many aop participants will also face anxieties and insecurities to which, fortunately for you, you probably have never and will never relate.

hope that clears things up!
