Yeah. From looking at previous Fordham threads, it looks like section assignments and schedules come out sometime in mid/late July

Hi all, there are probably like a billion other threads about this, but i was wondering specifically for fordham....i'm not a particularly quick typist, are all law exams taken on computer? Is it upto the student or prof.? does it depend on the class? just wondering in case i need to increase my typing speed before school starts...though i know i'm cutting it close at this point...

I'm planning on sending my photos out to Fordham tomorrow to the Office of Student Affairs. Anyone know their address? I have one on hand, but I just want to make sure its the right one.

I'm pretty sure you can just send it to any Fordham law address and put Attn: Student Affairs and they'll get it there.

Ooo that looks cool, you should do it (at least for the free rent if you qualify). I would, but I don't think I'm diverse enough. Unless economic diversity counts, but I'm guessing this is more of a racial thing.

I was accepted off the wait list last week, and had a great time at the Admitted Student's Day today...I'll probably be depositing by Friday! I'm so excited to be part of the Fordham community!

It's the Academic Enrichment Program ... This is the description from the email:
 AEP begins at the Law School on Monday, August 8, 2011 with an orientation and reception starting at 5:30 p.m. in the Law School Atrium.  It then continues for two weeks until Thursday, August 18 from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. in Room 311 of the law school.  Classes will not meet on Fridays. During those two weeks and under the direction of the AEP Program Director Carmen Morales, law school faculty and law student teaching assistants will present lectures and workshops on reading and briefing cases, legal writing, exam preparation, and other helpful advice and techniques that will help ease your transition into law school.  


It's free...I signed up!

Soooo not fair, why haven't I recieved that???

I probably wouldn't do it because I'll be too busy moving in and just trying to relax and stuff, but stilllll. SO NOT COOL. :evil: :evil:

eta: Also, I thought that's what orientation week was for...

idk why you didn't receive it...they said the offer was extended to but not limited to people who belong in groups usually underrepresented in the field of law and/or those who have been out of school for a while.

...i fall into neither of those categories. but idk about the orientation part...no idea. it's kinda gunnerish but i'm sure it'll help SOMEwhat.

Oh yeah, you'll be more prepared than me when school actually starts.

It's weird that the program is at night though...

ok does someone have a list of places I can look for apartments that aren't $239412903410823/month for a 2 or 3 bedroom? I've tried:

Craigslist
Streeteasy
Apartments.com
Padmapper

Don't most of these sites allow you to set price limits? I just put 2400 max for craigslist and I get all the corresponding shitty places.

Someone suggested rent-direct.com. You have to pay for their no-broker-fee listings, but it looks promising.

City Connections has some ok-looking options, too: http://www.ccrny.com/
