So, instead of sleeping I decided to poke around on NYU's website, and I came across their ResNet policy which seems hopelessly outdated. We're not allowed any routers- wireless or otherwise! Maybe it's just because I'm 3 years removed from dorm rooms, but I've gotten kind of used to having more than one computer online at a time. We're also only allowed to register two computers. This is especially disappointing because I'm in married housing, and guessing that my spouse will want to get online from time to time over the next year. The requirement to register your computer also seems to rule out any possibility of using the online capabilities of a video game console (not that I plan on having any time to use one anyway).

Please tell me that there's something I'm missing?

In my undergrad, we had to register computers, but I know of people who connected game consoles to the internet. Also, they probably allow more than two computers for family housing--something to ask IT about. The ResNet policy is probably written for undergrads.

Edit: Yeah, the main ResNet page lists only the undergrad dorms, no mention of Mercer or D'Ag or the smaller law ones. I assume we have a different set of rules.

Has anyone decided what computers they are getting for law school? I love desktop computers with big screens ( the new 27 iMac is pure joy) but since we are required to have laptops, I'm worried that it would be redundant. Would it make sense to have a cheap laptop for glasshouse and exams and a sexy desktop for working at home, or should I just get a sexy laptop and make do with a minuscule screen?

What about the sexy laptop + a large monitor for home use?
As for what I'm getting, I think I'm going the Macbook Pro route (prob 13').

I'm getting the Macbook pro 15'', I'd love to have a desktop but I would hate having to deal with moving it (coming from Texas).

Sent in my final intention to enroll document but NYU didn't get it per my call today. Does anyone where it is online? It is not in the 1L enrolling documents section.

Is it online? I haven't heard anything of it being so...

I got a tiny netbook because I'm feeble and then a regular laptop for home + exams because the netbook is pretty feeble too. It's a Dell Inspiron 1010, I think. (My husband has convinced me that Dell are not the company they used to be, but we got a killer warranty anyway.) For me it's almost a plus to my productivity that it doesn't approve of me tabbing manically through eight different windows without actually pausing to do work in any of them, but I can see it getting annoying if you wanted to use it for much more than note-taking and such - hence the "real" laptop at home.

Hey, did anyone else notice that the orientation schedule is online?

http://law.nyu.edu/ecm_dlv2/groups/publ ... 066153.pdf

It looks like instead of a scavenger hunt they have a bunch of cool optional activities to get to know NYC that look like fun.

This looks like a pretty good schedule...it seems like there is a reasonable amount of time for getting to know people, something I know last year's class complained about not having.

Who else is excited?

Found it--it is on the admitted students website inside the "enrolling at nyu" link. The penultimate checklist box i think.

Orientation looks good. Btw, it may already be obvious, but the tenement museum is not for anyone even mildly claustrophobic. Tenements were crazy small.

Picked up my NYU ID this morning; I am now officially an NYU student! Anyone in the city, the ID office is at 383 Lafayette, and they're open 9-6 (10-5 on Fridays), so you can pick up your ID before orientation.

Thanks! I was hoping we would be able to do this.

I was told we get into all the big museums for free (Met, MoMA, etc), anyone know if this is true? My roommate goes to grad school at Columbia and it's definitely true for them.

Ugh, I was just in the area this morning, had no idea i could've done this too :( Is it just a card, or are they putting our photo on them?

Most places at least have student prices. Also, the Met and the MNH are both "suggested donation," so even without a student card you can donate a dollar and get in if you're strapped.

They do take your picture. There's a huge photo that takes up about half the card.

Hey guys, NYU 2L here. Don't get gouged by the bookstore- buy your casebooks from me instead! I've got Civ Pro (Miller, Hershkoff, et. al), Contracts (Barnett), and Torts (Epstein) in great condition! Some of you will definitely need these, so PM me once you know your classes.

Also, the scavenger hunt was not nearly as fun as it sounds. It was like an Iphone competition in the blazing heat. The smart teams were the ones that quit early and went to get a beer.

All I know is that they said to accept your loans by the end of July to ensure a timely disbursement of the funds...

All I've seen is a "suggested reading" list.



Where did you see that?

I think we get our book list with our schedule on the first day?


Billy Budd & A Man for All Seasons are both outstanding.

You're not going to get cash in your bank account until around the beginning of semester, if I remember correctly. They will, however, pay themselves tuition from your loan before then.

EDIT: just checked my account from last year - it looks like the loan money was disbursed on Aug. 18. Make sure you have your direct deposit instructions set up as this will get you the money quicker

I talked to Financial Aid earlier this week about this. They said we'll usually see the money in our accounts by the 2nd week of september.
