I'll be wearing a bathrobe with a tie.

Versatility.

Just like my eventual JD.

How about just the tie


Or just a bow-tie.

I'm kind of a minimalist (*exception: my debt)

Eh a lot of people don't know the whole "suggested admission" deal, and I think they plan on adding more as the program develops.

In the interim, I'll enjoy not having to wait for free times for MoMa. :) (also will feel like less of a dick now that we're 'supposed' to be able to get in for free instead of awkwardly only paying a dollar haha).

Also, with Issacharoff, his exam is very "straightforward" and has an extremely tight curve. The issues covered on the exam are going to be very predictable and the most important thing you can do is take as many of his practice exams as you can. Until you get to the point that you basically have answers pre-written in your head for each concept, I would take and retake as many exams as you need. To that end, I wouldn't waste time making a complete outline for him. Find an outline that someone else has written, maybe work through some things but spend most of your time taking practice tests until it's basically a reflex.

You will have three writing assignments this semester, use them well to work through how you would approach an exam question.

+1 but from what I can tell, everyone loves Barkow (at least they say their friends who had her do), everyone loves Neuborne (but they've only had him in seminars), and everyone loves Bar-Gill (I think he might be new here). So, it's not really helpful, but at least they're nice people? Approachable?

Wondering how much time people are spending studying. My buddies are saying they are spending 10 hours a day. I'm not there.... too many distractions from NYC, mixers, etc.

Interested to see if I'm alone and should crack the books more....

Definitely not 10 hours. I'm even doing some supplement reading on the side and I have found I have plenty of free time right now. I'd say 6 hours outside of class? And my weekends have been about 10 hours total.
