The debt is rather staggering, but hey, at least we can all have free birthdays in the city now.

Is anyone having trouble with the admitted students website? I can't log in anymore. It doesn't say "this does not match any records" like it does when I type the wrong password - it just refreshes the page instead...

Has my offer of admission been revoked??

No, the website is just retarded. Try logging in again, or try to get to it through the law school's front page.

Is there a link from the front page? Could someone post the link they're using to access the ASW?

Shit happened to me, too, for like 3 days. One day it just started working again.

True. But at least he's optimistic about job prospects. Obviously a little too optimistic, but the fact that someone was willing to say that tells me that perhaps things are looking up a little bit. The flip said of that is I'm pretty sure that guy can do just about whatever he wants when he leaves NYU.

Yeah I know what you mean. And yeah, he was def oblivious to the fact that not everyone at nyu owns law school like he does.

I feel like I should post here in case I do end up going to NYU. I received a finaid offer last week of $62,500 over three years (or $75,000 if I do PI after 2L summer). If Columbia can't match the offer then I'm going to NYU. Can't make it to this week's ASW though :(

Yeah I think so. I can't believe how expensive this whole proposition is, even with such a generous scholarship offer.

Folks who went to the March 4-5 reception--can we expect to receive a schedule of any kind before we arrive Thursday? Also, any thoughts on what panels / tours would be illuminating vs. coma-inducing for an S.O.? Looking forward to meeting everyone on Friday (we we we we so excited).

You should receive a very generic schedule a couple days prior, but you won't really get anything specific until you're there, IIRC. Regarding the SO, I would recommend to steer clear of the Corporate Law Panel. I was head nodding and I know there was something a lot better at the same time (maybe a clerkships panel?). That said, depending on your SO, anything could be pretty boring. Incompetentia put a list of the schedule somewhere on here. Either in this thread or the In at NYU thread, too lazy to look. Who knows if the schedule will be the same though, odds are it won't be identical. Hope you enjoy NYU!
