Do you live in / are you from New York? It probably depends where you're going to, but in my experience the people on the subway at 11 p.m. are kids out partying and workers going home. I've never really felt nervous, like I would in a bad neighborhood.

Lsathalon pretty much covered the housing issue, but just to add: as someone who lives off campus, I definitely don't make it back to campus for every social event. But I also wouldn't go to most of them if I did live in D'Ag. For the evening happenings that I actually want to attend, it's not a huge effort to come back to campus, and if I were single and liked loud bars, I could see myself doing it a lot more often. Alternately, I think what would usually happen is that I would just study on campus until the event began. (My one caution about doing this is that, unless your backpack/whatever smushes up a little, it may not fit in your locker. But you could always have a friend in D'Ag who would let you leave it there :D and some nights the coat check is open pretty late.) I think the only thing you definitely miss out on living off campus is whatever informal socializing goes on in the common spaces of the residence halls.

I am ready to buy my plane ticket for the March 3 & 4 ASW, but wanted to make sure that these dates are firmly set. Has anyone heard these dates from official sources?

Thanks!

Any idea on when we will see an admitted students website or when there will be scholarship notifications?

I'm actually from Jersey, so I've only been up to NYC to visit from time to time. If you don't mind, another question: I noticed that you mentioned backpacks...how big a backpack do people generally need? I know it sounds like a ridiculous question, but I have a messenger bag right now that is relatively small. Are books usually huge?

What I was told by my NYU tour guide was that a lot of students prefer to have their textbooks separated into multiple smaller copies so that they don't have to carry all of them around. Just a cool idea to keep in mind :)

To answer this question: last year we saw it come up in late January with a password to access it.

Scholarship Notifications for named came in Mid to Late February depending on when you applied.

Not sure about unnamed...sorry. :(

This is truth. To answer earlier question, books are huge...cut them up if you live off campus.

Thanks for the info! Does that mean you got a named scholarship? Do you happen to know what stats are like for the IILJ or others?

Admitted students website just went live--got an email. Also got another email reminding me to apply for financial aid.

Nope. And I'm anxious to create my NYU e-mail too.

Sooo I figure I'll post this in here:

Here's the RSVP stuff for the NYU ASW (for TLS. obviously not official at all)

So here's the form for RSVPing:

& here's the spreadsheet with the summary:

Why is everyone set on that one weekend??? Was there some kind of TLS NYU visitation club I wasn't invited to? :(

Well I'm doing it because it's later than most of the other ASWs I'm planning on attending, so I figure I'd rather spread it out. Dunno why it seems that every single TLSer is planning on that weekend...maybe there's a sekrit lolcat convention?

I feel like I'll get very lonely alone (only time I ever lived alone I was in a relationship the entire year and I was alone like 10% of the time, so I don't know how I'll fare with that + the sometimes overbearing pressure of NYC). On the other hand, it would be nice to be free to watch TV, have people over, be able to have overnight guests/family visit, etc. whenever I want, and not be subject to the whims of my roommate during finals. I guess I just have this nightmare that I'll move all the way to NYC and have absolutely no human contact outside of class-time. That, and if I have family visit a few times a semester (I have a big family who I'm sure will use this as an excuse to visit NYC frequently), the money saved via hotels for just a few nights will kind of outweigh the savings of living with a roommate... Obviously there's no straightforward answer but is anyone else really wondering about this?


Ugh. No roommate for me again, ever. I lived alone one year in college and then in college-extended (aka Teach for America-- where you have a built in social network) and I never feel lonely. I have lived surrounded by friends both times, and I'd imagine law school- or really any school- is the same way. It's a nice transition to "adulthood."

Then again, I might like a little more alone time than others..


I'm in a different version of "college extended" (the JET program), and it can get lonely, but that's mainly b/c we live rurally and generally pretty far apart from each other (and by "we" I mean the only Westerners in my area :) )...I can't imagine that having a single in a dorm w/common rooms, organized social events, etc. can be all that isolating...

Edit: Woops, sorry, didn't realized that I had linked to a page back...

Do people make it work living on the UWS? Not too keen on leaving the neighborhood...

That's totally workable in terms of trains, obviously, but I would be surprised if there were that many law students up there.

Has anyone tried to fill out NYU's institutional financial aid app? Already did Need Access/FAFSA, but NYU has its own unique app as well. I thought this was recently made available, per the email a few days ago, but I don't see any links on FAAPS (assuming that is where the app resides) to begin...
