Haha my UG did that too. That still doesn't solve the problem of all the traffic though. Unless there's going to be a giant parade of people wheeling to campus from another location, which I have to admit would be amazing.

Bring lots of monies for the ridiculous taxi waiting fee while you unload every little box that you have, and sit for hours in frustration at the mass blanket of dandelion yellow vehicles around of you. Duh. :mrgreen:


pack light and bring like 4 boxes of stuff with you to NYC.

Better yet, pack light and ship your stuff to your building. The mailroom will hold it for you. Way way easier.

I'm just curious to do an informal poll here...

1) What did you major in during undergrad? Did you take any law / pre-law courses?

2) Any law-related work experience or otherwise?

I'll go first...

1) What did you major in during undergrad? Did you take any law / pre-law courses?

Japanese, minor in Poli Sci, only one course that could be considered pre-law

2) Any law-related work experience or otherwise?

Not really, other than political activism which has exposed me to some constitutional law and coming from a family of lawyers.

-philosophy and poli sci. here it's a 2 in 1 type of thing, not two separate
2) Any law-related work experience or otherwise?
if interning counts then one at a d.a's office and one at an in-house group

Chemistry and music theory. The closest I even got to anything law-related were macro/micro.

2) Any law-related work experience or otherwise?

Not for me. Primary WE is teaching or something similar.

1) I ended up with two UG degrees--one in 20th Century American History, and the other in Jewish Liturgy. For real.

2) Nope. Tried to paralegal and ended up at a foundation; before that, I worked in NYC politics.

1) Undergrad was a long time ago, but.... I did a double major in Romance Languages & Literatures and Economics. I took one class that could be considered pre-law, an econ elective called 'economics and law'

2) I have no experience in law other than free lance writing letters for immigration officers. But I don't address any legal issues in the letters, I just sing the praises of the person who's applying for a visa. So, I'm pretty sure that doesn't count.

You can probably get some sort of a visitor pass to scope it out again, but I doubt they'll let you in daily.

Dealing with unnecessary drama immediately before law school is silly.


I thank you for the advice, which is also what others are saying too―early access to the school/law-library is not in the cards. I think I’ll save the $375.00 rent money for three months and move in a week or two before classes start. Thanks.

Just got off the WL so I'm new to the forum but I was wondering if anyone here is planning to bring a pet to NYU? I will not be moving with my bf but I have a dog I don't want to leave behind, and it seems more and more unfeasible to afford an apartment on a student budget that isn't a) super far or b) inhumanely small for a dog to hang out in all day.

Congrats on getting in!!! And I'm bringing my cat with me. It's not the same as a dog since obviously she doesn't need as much space to run around, but from what I've seen Brooklyn is very pet friendly. And the commute isn't that bad depending on where you're at. Just look in the neighborhoods closer to Manhattan and you should be fine, and the prices are still reasonable.
