That being said, my letter from NYU (pulled from the studentloans.gov website, after logging in) says that my Fed Direct Loan and Direct Plus Loan will be disbursed on AUGUST 18th. Um... how am I going to pay for housing (Mercer)??

I'm finally checking in here after taking a break from TLS since April! When do we find out roommate assignments? I'm in D'Agostino Hall.

I'm on my phone so it's not easy to search but when did people in last year's thread find out?

Edit: Nevermind, just checked. They found out in Mid June :shock: it's August and we still haven't gotten it

Two more weeks!!!

Also, my impression was that we're only responsible for whatever part of our bill that financial aid doesn't cover - if you don't owe out of pocket for Mercer then you should be okay. Unless you're doing private loans?

We can't register for the 1L Reading Groups yet, right? Some of them look pretty cool and I don't want to miss out!

Not yet, but hopefully we'll know more soon. The topics do sound pretty cool and I definitely like the idea of getting to know faculty in a more informal setting!

I just looked at the list and there are so many I want to take! I'm really excited about it.

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


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


There's more info about what to bring here if you scroll towards the bottom: http://www.law.nyu.edu/housing/oncampus ... allcheckin

Does anyone know NYU's C/O 2017 stats (medians, class size, etc), perhaps from ASW sources? It seems like the C/O 2017 Facebook group is abnormally small compared to peer schools (fewer members than the 2017 groups of both Columbia and Penn, both schools with classes typically smaller than NYU's). Could this mean NYU is shrinking its class size for 17ers?

To anyone thinking of renting their books: I saved around $250 renting 4 books through Amazon and received them in two days. Two of them were in good condition (a few of the pages had marks) the other two were heavily highlighted/written in. You get a full refund if you send them back within 30 days, so I plan to do that and see if I can get some new ones shipped out in better condition.

P.S. You can sign up for 6 free months of Amazon Prime with your @nyu.edu email.

Section 5 here!

Behind a couple days on the discussion 'cause of dumb dental problems, but I bought all my books on Amazon/Ebay and spent $370. Three have come already and they're a little marked up, but I don't write in my books and the notes don't bother me. I did this all through college and it always saved me a ton. Just make sure to search by the ISBN, and you'll get the right addition.

Ooh I feel really behind, wasn't even thinking about getting books for a week. Are you just taking the course numbers and looking them up at NYU bookstore for the ISBN #s? I also need to buy a new laptop before school starts. Thinking about the macbook air especially since I'll be commuting from off campus.

You can look up the books by your student ID number as well! Just ordered mine yesterday on Amazon.

I got a new laptop as well - debated getting the Air but ended up getting a Lenovo instead.

In case any of you is looking for last-minute 1-BD apartment, this one is available immediately. It's right next to Washington Sq Park. It doesn't have a broker fee. I need to transfer the lease, as I will be attending school out of state. Thanks!

Ooh that is a neat feature! I see that one of my classes (contracts) is missing when the site returns my results. Anyone else encounter this? Also I wonder if all sections are using the same books?

I have Torts 10th edition by Epistein, Civil Procedure 6th Edition by Marcus, Federal civil rules booklet 2014, and bluebook 19th Edition.

Are we allowed to move in before we get our IDs or do we have to grab our IDs first when we get there?

Section 3, right? Our contracts professor is visiting from Northwestern. I am guessing he just hasn't gotten NYU his booklist.
