From what I've seen in other threads a lot of people at the bottom of the class at least find SOMETHING since a lot of people self select into public interest and to a much lesser extent academics. Also keeping in mind that not everyone stays in New York so people would be going to other cities like New York, LA, Chicago, possibly some secondary markets they have ties to, etc. Of course employment isn't guaranteed and things on your resume can make a difference but I don't think it's necessarily a total death wish to be at the bottom.

Many years ago, while playing a street pick-up game, I met a guy that told me that he did his first year at NYU Law, but that it was very challenging for him. He transferred to Fordham Law and said that he was having a much easier time.

I felt kind of bad for him. Thinking back on it, I hope he wasn't going into too much debt.

That's a depressing thought. Poor guy.

Has anyone sent in their final enrollment confirmation? Did you get an email confirming you sent it or just the message on the screen saying "Thanks for your submission"?

Nothing but the confirmation screen. It hasn't been reflected on the status checker, either. Submitted almost immediately after the Docket email.

Same here. I even tried to resubmit it (just in case it hadn't gone through), but the page said my confirmation had already been submitted. I guess the forms just haven't been processed yet.

My status checker says final confirmation received (box is checked). I did the online form 2 days ago

I'll just give it until August 1 before I freak out then.

Also: I was slightly hoping that long housing email they sent us today would have our roommates in it but got to the end and was disappointed :?

1. Where is the tracker to see which documents NYU has received thus far?
2. Anyone planning on asking for a waiver for the mandatory school provided health insurance?
3. I'm freaking out of not getting my immunization forms / getting to see a doctor before Aug 1st.
4. Does anyone know what the "Law Prof Reg & Svcs Fee" for $653 is?

1. It's the same status tracker you used when you first submitted your application/followed before your decision, etc.

2. N/A

3. I'm sure you'll be fine! My shot records weren't signed by my doctor nor was it the form NYU sent us and NYU was fine with it.

4. I think everyone has been seeing these random fees but they change over time. I think the consensus was that it was just a placeholder for something

2) I asked for a waiver and it was approved within 24 hours. All I did was enter my parents insurance info. It was pretty easy.

3) You don't actually have to go to the doctor or fill out the forms. I just faxed them a copy of my vaccine history with my name and my NYUid. They confirmed that I was in compliance with the law 2 days later. I knew that it was going to be hard to make it to the doctor, so I'm glad they accepted the fax.

Ooh perfect. The form looks ridiculously tedious. I'm going to see if I can just fax a copy of my vaccination card too! Thanks. And thanks, tenniscourt, too!

Edit: Don't see anything about immunization on the tracker. Did they send you a confirmatory email about that, or did you simply follow up? Also, says they've receieved my final undergrad transcript / college questionnaire, but that I owe LSAC a finalized transcript (lol wat?)

I received an email directly from health services saying that they received my immunization information, so you just wait for the confirmation and you're good! I also didn't send the official NYU form and it was fine.

My schedule is shit-tastic. 9am, and 2pm, pretty much everyday. Awkward 3 hour break, how wonderful.
