Missed a week of classes because of Sandy. Finals on Xmas?

Postby victortsoi » Wed Oct 31, 2012 8:57 pm

Cardozo 1L here. In all, we basically lost a week of classes (and a day of law library access on Sunday, for our LRW memos) due to the hurricane. Hopefully power will be back on Monday, but that may or may not happen.

It would be horrible to reschedule all the makeup hours on the rest of the semester, especially since 'Dozo already had so many Jewish holidays off.

In a broader sense, my question definitely applies to NYU and NYLS students as well. Do you guys think that the semester and exam schedule, in my case scheduled to end on 12/19, might actually be pushed a week, with exams around christmastime?

Thanks.

How could any of us possibly know this? Contact your school.

I'm not asking if you knew, only if you could guess. School hasn't made a decision yet. Also, I'm curious as to whether having finals on New Years (Eve)/Christmas(Eve) is so taboo it wouldn't happen, according to TLS consensus.
