Wait, my mistake. Missed criminal law -- which we can't order yet. 770 pre-tax; extrapolated to ~2.2k annualized. :\

And yea, you can save a few bucks per book buying on amazon. Also it's more convenient than having to go get the books yourself.

Not sure how they split up our schedules. Might just be a factor of 2 then.

Is there an option for in-store pickup instead of shipping? My undergrad allowed for this but I didn't know if NYU did as well.

Also, we can charge our books to our student account, correct?

Looks like no in store pickup, although they'll ship to dorms.

Also for the charge..

"Payment Method - Please select NYU Bookstore Gift Card, and/or NYU Campus Cash if applicable, and by default a Credit Card will be required. If the NYU Bookstore Gift Card or NYU Campus Cash is selected and the balance is not sufficient for the entire order, your Credit Card will be used for the difference. A Credit Card entry is always required. If using more than one method of payment, the transaction will be processed in this order: NYU Bookstore Gift Card, NYU Campus Cash, with any balance charged to your Credit Card. Your Credit Card will be authorized for the full amount of the order, then if applicable when the order is processed, reduced by any other payment methods selected.

You will be prompted for your Credit Card information on a subsequent page."

Is everyone getting the book lists from the NYU book store search, or is this info available somewhere else as well? Just prefer if possible to double check I'm buying the right thing before dropping that kind of money :P

If you aren't going to buy it from NYU, make sure the ISBN# matches so you know it's the right one.

$550 and $800 for books? I'm buying my three required books from Amazon for Torts and CivPro, plus a bluebook, and I'm at $350. Are yall buying supplements now, and is that what's driving the price up?

I bought all the required books for Contracts, CivPro, and Criminal, along with the bluebook and two apparently required supplements for around $550 on Amazon just now.

Barnes & Noble doles out some coupon codes (~20% off) if you are signed up to their free student account. Haven't had the time to shop on their website, but I'll let y'all know if the coupons help any.

Is it wishful thinking to think we'll find out our roommates today?

I read somewhere that shower curtains are already there. Not sure about window coverings.

thoughts on renting/buying used/buying from bookstore?


I've heard from a few law students that buying used/renting is not a good idea for 1L year--will likely get marked up books that can be confusing to work with.


2L here -- and just wanted to throw in my two cents -- I wish I'd bought used books for all of last year. I only did second semester and it saved me a bunch of money. You can also specify on coases how much marking you're willing to put up with before you purchase.

Though personally I liked having marked up books for torts and LRS; it meant I was able to skim through a lot of reading very quickly. Also used books will often come cut (if you live off-campus, it sucks having to lug a giant casebook around so you'll want to get them broken into smaller bound versions).

Thanks! I'll remove that from my "need to buy list," which is much longer than anticipated.
