I understand the dangers of using quotes to emphasize words, as opposed to the more standard use of italics, for example. In this case there was little confusing my word as ironic, nonstandard, or as a quote. Since this is a non-academic, non-professional setting I still find the all caps word surrounded by quotes to be more visually pleasing and compelling, given the point I was trying to convey.

Also, that blog isn't actually funny. It was too one track.

I've never seen anyone use that like you do. It is not aesthetically pleasing, correct, or easier to do. Also, don't attack BOM she is way, way cooler than you.


Your little slightly-more-senior-on-TLS club is cute, but she started it, so I will defend myself as needed; not that it concerns you.

Also, your lack of familiarity with a common colloquial style does not mean it is not common. It just means you are unfamiliar. Consider yourself more informed. I guess I should also point out that aesthetically pleasing is subjective. I find it pleasing, you might not. I never claimed that you would, however.

You are a dork. I find your online persona to be fairly grating. I hope (and honestly, am pretty sure) that you are less grating in person.

You are talking about off-topic posts in an on-topic forum. I'm nothing but my usual charming self in the on-topics. :D

The last few posts here were perhaps a bit off-putting but yes, mostly judging by the off-topics which was pretty clear trolling so I probably shouldn't judge you all that much off of it.

Well, before we get into another round of this I should make it known that I am aware I used an ellipsis a few posts back in a nonstandard way.

Please note it was a style choice. No blog links are necessary. :lol:

Whoa what's up with all the butt hurt here! I'm sure we'll be grabbing some drinks and laughing soon enough.

Also, I find it amusing how many people at the top law schools know about TLS. I was speaking to someone a few days ago who kept saying a particular word, and I asked where he/she heard it, and sure enough TLS came up. It's funny though because everyone goes 'yea i just read it, I don't really post' including myself :D

I wonder why so few NYU peeps in the TLS c/o 2017 thread. Lowest number in CCN, which is surprising given Chi's class size :|

Although given the aid situation this cycle, maybe that's to be expected :| :|

This just a random rant but I can't seem to figure out why I give a single f*** about grad school grades right now...

I'm sitting in the library studying my butt off in a humanities field that could not be less related to law school and stressing out over language quiz grades. Cannot wait to be at NYU.

This morning I really wanted to call out sick to work [I am perfectly healthy], and I have no earthly idea what made me get out of bed instead of doing that.

Couple of questions...

If we submit our housing application by May 15th, are we automatically subject to the cancellation fee policy or does this only apply after we officially receive our housing assignment?

Also, do we know how soon after May 15th we should expect to receive our housing assignment?

Official language is "to be without penalty, notice of cancellation must be submitted by 5:00 p.m. on June 27, 2014, or the date indicated in your initial assignment, to cancel an academic year or fall only housing assignment letter. Applicants who cancel after 5:00 p.m. on June 27, 2014, and prior to 5:00 p.m. on August 1, 2014, will be assessed a $1,500 late cancellation fee. Applicants who cancel after 5:00 p.m. on August 1, 2014, are responsible for all fees due under or as a consequence of the License for the entire License period."

critical mass wrote:Also, do we know how soon after May 15th we should expect to receive our housing assignment?


Mid-June according to: "We will begin to send out confirmations in mid-June and weekly thereafter. The actual date of application for those applying prior to May 15 is not considered when processing individual assignments. Entering students are assigned via an assignment, not a lottery, process."

Also there's this on the Admissions Timeline: June 16, 2014 - Notification of first-round housing assignments.
