My thinking is that more or less the general finaid policies are designed to help students strike a balance between judicious borrowing and manageable living standards, whereas LRAP policies are separately designed to benefit students as much as possible on a theoretical future small income at minimal cost to the school.

Seems like the two just don't interact with each other too pleasantly.

I can't seem to access blackboard. The instructions say to click on the course link in NYUHome > Academics, but my courses aren't linked, and are marked as "not open," and the FAQ page that explains "Why aren't my courses open" also won't load.

Any tips on other ways to access blackboard? I am still in the dark as to what my section is and who my professors are...

Check albert for your section info. A lot of courses still aren't open on blackboard.

Yeah, the two don't mesh very well. Also, what do you think happens if you ask for the max and then the increase for the computer now, and then at semester you decide to take out less for the spring?

Does that happen right at check-in? I've packed pretty much everything that's formal/semi-formal/anything way away in my suitcases, and the best I'll have is a polo and some shorts for that day.

I suppose if that's the way it goes, at least it's a deep purple polo...

there's a smoke in the water joke or something in here SOMEwhere

No... I spent Friday through Monday at an, ahem, medical facility. Which kind of threw a crimp in my preparations. I was considering skipping Wednesday.

This orientation picture bullshit is bullshit right?

And have they disbursed loans for off campus folks yet? I need my rent moneys.

I was thinking going light purple polo. No joke to be had, unfortunately.

It's for the class roster, I am sure you can take it another time, or get out of it. If you do skip Wednesday, Thursday is going to be a bit of a rush, their "late registration" is a half hour before the true orientation events.

The photo is just going to be a head shot, right? I'd like to wear shorts on what looks to be the hottest and most casual day of orientation.

Apparently the class photo 'follows you around' for the next three years as it was described to me. It pops up over and over, even at EIW, etc. So, try and get a good one.

Anyone have an example here? I've never even seen an announcement of it, but then again, I don't really read their emails.

Okay, so polos look like they'll work all right.

Just need to not look goofy in the actual picture.
That's the most difficult part.

If you scroll through those pics you'll realize that there is a large portion of people that look pretty goofy.

It's law school, not FIT. And I can't get the damn link to work. No one wants to see my ugly mug anyhow.

In other news... LOCKER ASSIGNMENTS! Woot!

edit: The locker assignment email was pure lies. Stay tuned.

Good grief! I was all excited. I guess I'll have to leave my locker organizer and pin-ups home until further notice.

I was going to say...I'm living in D'ag - I don't need a locker. Besides, all I'd do is keep copies of my goofy headshot in there.
