Anyone know if Criminal Contracts and Legal Writing is all the courses for Fall for the Evening division? Why did I think there was one other...

That sounds right, but I'm not sure. Full Time has Criminal, Contracts, Legal Writing and Property so having one less makes sense. I wouldn't take that to the bank though.

There's a new section on the admitted students website that says "New Reading Assignments" but the instructions are to read it before your Legal Practice class. As far as I know I don't have a legal practice class. Anyone know anything about this?

Perhaps this is referring to "Legal Process" which is scheduled for Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday on the orientation schedule?

That's what I suspected and after opening up the files, Im pretty sure that its for Legal Process. Damn all this AEP and orientation work...I guess its a good warm up for law school.

I think they updated the Orientation Schedule too slightly but there is a "Legal Practice and Legal Writing" session on Tuesday and Wednesday from 2 - 330

Does anyone have an idea what we need to bring for orientation? I don't wanna gun up the place with my laptop and notebook, but I dont wanna get caught with my pants down and have to ask for a pen and paper!

Just dropping in to say that although I was waitlisted and withdrew from Fordham, and although I confirmed with them months later that I did not, in fact, want to stay on the waiting list, I was dinged via email today! :( Must you take my pride, Fordham? Must you?

I never thought I'd actually have the chance to post in here but I'm really excited to be joining you guys as part of the FT class of 2013!

Getting off the WL last minute is a bit nerve racking though, I'm eagerly anticipating getting my login and section so I know what first assignments I need to prepare. Whatever they are, I'm glad I'm getting to do them at Fordham :D

I know we talked earlier, but congrats! And yes, I'm up at this hour due to OCI. Early Interview Week starts tomorrow, so if you see us in suits, you'll know why!

For those who haven't ordered their Property textbook yet, I found that the cheapest place to buy it is Barnes 'n Noble online (cheaper than Amazon) and ships almost immediately, as opposed to the 1-3 weeks it takes right now to get it from Amazon.

SEVERAL of us are having this problem. I can get in about 50% of the time, now. Admissions says it's a problem with my computer (I disagree.) You know about the Monet book, right? Have you logged onto my.fordham.edu to set up your account, yet?

Yes - there are 3 supplemental readings for Legal Process - I'll try to PM them tonight!
Also, your sections/syllabi will be on there. Please call Admissions and tell them about the problems you're having - there really are a number of us struggling with this! Will find those files... (Oh, do you have the orientation schedule?)

One of my professors says that he is posting assignments and extra reading on TWEN. What is TWEN, and how do we get access to it?

Had the exact same question. TWEN is part of Westlaw (http://lawschool.westlaw.com/twen/), which we will receive access to during orientation.
