I usually keep up on current events, but I'd never heard of this scandal before today (my bad). Certainly adds an air of intrigue to the upcoming year.

I haven't been on the forums in forever, but I logged on to see if someone had already broken the news. The prodigal melon has arrived! I (along w/ Prof. Ben Liebman, I suppose) am kind of excited to meet him

I don't know if this has already been addressed earlier in the thread (and I don't really want to search through 60 pages haha), but apparently the gym at Columbia leaves something to be desired? Has anybody heard different things? Or have contingency plans in case the gym actually sucks?

I'm pretty concerned about this as well. Generally I have heard that the gym is quite small and crowded. However, I have heard that other options cost a ton of money...so it looks like I'll be getting up at ungodly hours in the morning to beat the rush.

The consensus from what I've read is that it's a bad gym (mainly for space reasons) and even off-peak times you'll often get kicked out, but the cost of getting a membership anywhere else makes it acceptable. So pretty much what Sgt Pepper said.

Were we supposed to have received anything beyond the first admissions letter / enrollment info and such? I don't have an orientation packet or anything. My mail is a bit fucked as I've been traveling everywhere.

I don't think so. The only other stuff I've gotten has been financial aid... one requesting more information, one saying my gradplus loan had been approved (no word on others yet). And that's all been e-mail.

Did get a Columbia sticker in the mail though. So you're missing out on that.

I got a brochure for the bookstore and an advertising letter from Citibank, if that counts.

Oh, I did get a sticker! Awesome, thanks. Good to know I'm not missing anything super important.

Does anybody know when our class schedules will be released (or when they have traditionally been released)? I'm anxious to know how the next few months of my life are going to look.

YES. MY DEAN'S CERT HAS FINALLY BEEN RECEIVED.

What do you mean that's a ridiculous thing to be so excited about? Shut up. I have a life. I swear.

Also, are y'all doing community service?

As one of the few ways to meet people that doesn't require getting past a bouncer, sure am. :P

We get schedules at orientation I'm pretty sure.

Yep, on the website it says, "Pick up packets and registration materials. Packets will include your
class schedule, ID cards, and your first day assignments."

Maybe they will be online before then though?

Probably not, haha, but can hope.

few questions:
1) is everyones @law.columbia.edu email working? I've sent 3-4 test emails to that address and they aren't coming up in my lionmail. Do they not forward to the initials+rando #s email?

B) law school login and password isn't something we have right now, right?

III) Has anyone done recon on nearby boozy establishments?

I am pretty sure you have to set it up in settings. Log in to your initials/rando#s. Go to settings. Accounts. Add your @law.columbia.edu and set it default.

I meant that I can't/don't know how to log into my @law.columbia.edu address. I was operating under the assumption that the new email was just so we didn't have to give out the ridiculous one and all emails would go to the same place.

I think we don't log into our @law.columbia.edu. All emails sent to that will be directed to the initials+rando if you set it up under settings.

Mine works (as does firstinitiallastname@law) and both I was able to set up in Lionmail.

However, while you should do that (click the gear in the top right, then settings, then "accounts" or something), I didn't have to set anything up for it to arrive to me (it was automatically sent to my initalsnumbers@columbia email. Maybe go talk to the relevant person once classes start up?

(Love the numbering.) But no. Nearby boozy establishments for me are you guys.

Can anyone recommend a brand of air conditioner? For those of you who have moved in... is there one that will necessarily fit the windows in 420 W 116th, or are they all random and I'll have to wait to ask the super?
