great thanks...will call tomorrow. tried calling today, but the office stops taking calls after 4 pm. called admissions office to see if they could help, they had no clue about the issue, and aren't very nice (never have been in any of the calls i had with them)

You should call the Office of Financial Aid, not admissions. They have a clue and are quite nice.

I am greatly appreciating TLS right now as the very problem I was getting ready to post about has already been discussed (and solved) by other users. Thanks for the tips everyone!

And, to be clear, I called the law school office of financial aid, not the NYU office of financial aid:

School of Law
phone: 212-998-6050

Yup, thanks. I called office of financial aid first, but they were closed, so I wanted to try my look with the admission's office.

Hi,

Sorry--Catan needs to happen on Wednesday because of the all star game. Sorry. Wednesday? 7-7.15 pm?

I actually won't be able to make that, but I'll be there next time. Enjoy!

I'd be able to make it, but how many other people can?

I can, but also open to rescheduling.

Maybe it would be better to reschedule if we're not sure how many people can make it. Could we get together next week some time?

We absolutely should. Although law school orientation can't possibly be as painful as those of previous programs (in my grad program they gave us a folder full of handouts and then made us sit in an auditorium as they read each one aloud to us), I suspect it will be thirsty work nonetheless.


yes, the whole "orientation" thing does not sound like a barrel of monkeys, but there might be some useful info thrown in there (and Bai I have also been to a few orientations exactly like the one you described) . I'm considering that week the "adjust to NYC week" since I can't justify the expense of moving in any earlier than when my lease begins, and I need the time to work anyway.

Besides that.... does anyone know anything about how it's going to go? I'm planning to drive into NYC at around 8 a.m. on the 25th. What are we expected to do that day? Is that just move-in day, or do we have to go to something after we get our apartments, or what? Anyone have a clue? Any 2Ls want to explain what Day 1 is all about?

This guy is a NYU Rising 2L who has a pretty interesting blog I've been following. Scroll down to see his entries about orientation from last year. Apparently students complained and changes have been made for this year, but this will give you a general idea.

Ughhh on second thought I dunno if I can make it tonight either... I may have let work and general chores pile up to the point where I can't justify taking a night off. (Work aside, I can't see the floor on my side of the bedroom and my cat is foraging for food in the cupboard.) But sign me up for a reschedule and/or rematch!

In that case, I think we should reschedule, since no one has confirmed that they will be able to go except myself and fahd. :? Next week works for me, though, or thereafter.

Right, bummer. I was looking forward to insulting future classmates over rolls of die. Oh well. I'm good for next week.

edit: You might have to play Catan to understand I mean no ill will with the above statement.

I think I've taken care of my medical/other admin b.s. Tomorrow I'll call nyu/nyu health and verify.

So am I the only one who hasn't received the medical forms yet? If so, I suppose I'll call and get it sorted.

I got mine in North Carolina about 2 weeks ago, so it might be time to call!

Got mine a few weeks ago. Still trying to figure out how to verify my stuff since my doctor moved across the country 10+ years ago.... Any ideas anyone? Should I just initiate a doctor-hunt?

Your undergraduate institution should have all your medical information on file- most schools require that you submit proof of immunization for you to attend. So I would call the student health center there first.

Yeah I was thinking about that or even going back to my high school. I'll check it out next week. Thanks.

Hey guys! I'm still out of the country, and can't access any of the loan info/medical papers - are there deadlines for them?

Also, any future meetups being planned? I'm coming back next week, and definitely want meet y'all :D

Medical info: Aug. 15th
Loan Stuff: There's no deadline, but they encourage you to complete it before the end of July to ensure it gets distributed in a timely manner.

We should have an NYC meetup mailing list. That way it won't fill up the thread and everyone will be updated and whatnot. Anyone want to PM me (or someone) their e-mail addresses?
