It's gonna be so weird meeting everyone from TLS because I have mental images of what I think you all look like and I'm sure none of you look like what I think you look like so it'll just be mind warping the whole time

What day next week works for everyone? Also, where should we meet? I'm not really familiar with the area, but I could google locations. :)

There are quite a few bars within a block or two of the school, we could probably meet at D'ag on Monday/Tuesday and go from there.


Tennis, I want to hear you describe what you think people look like! Also: who is your favorite tennis player?

Forewarning: I'm a doofus.


Would people be up for grabbing a drink somewhere around NYU on Wednesday or Thursday? I was planning on throwing the idea out there on the facebook group as well, would love to meet as many people as possible before classes start.


May I be so bold as to suggest the Art & Crafts Beer Parlor on 8th Street, Thursday at 5PM (HH is 4-7).

This sounds great to me. I also threw the Thursday happy hour idea out on the facebook group so hopefully we can get a sizable showing.

Well I thought you would look like Will Smith because of the Philly username/Fresh Prince :lol:

And my favorite tennis player is Nadal. I like Federer too but no way to Djokovic

Hahah, not quite.

I don't like Nadal or Djokovic. I respect both a ton, but Nadal plays so slow. Federer is my man, and I used to love Andy.

And of course, who doesn't love Serena?

Noooo! I'll have to convert you to liking Nadal. I like how aggressive he plays & no one beats him at baseline play. And ahh yes, Serena. I didn't mention her because it was a given lol. Maria Sharapova might be my least favorite tennis player ever. Haha I love how this thread turned into a tennis discussion.

I also thought fkt would be a party girl because I saw a movie with Emma Watson playing a party girl in the bling ring. And I thought BOM was a guy(sorry! I shouldn't have assumed #feminism) and would look like Steve from Blues Clues :lol:

I definitely like to go out, but I'm not sure if I would describe myself as a party girl, tennis! But I'm sure law school will turn us all into alcoholics.

I don't know if I'll be around for next week's meet-up (since I won't be at D'ag until probably 9:30 on Tues night), but I'm super excited to meet everyone.

So which section has the best schedule? I want to know who I should be jealous of, because it's not Section 3 with four 9am's and a 10am.

That sounds pretty good to me... 9am every day with Section 1.

Same for Section 5

Then again, we are done at 11AM on both Wednesday AND Friday. I'm pretty happy with our schedule.

Section 3. Not bad, but not great.

Being done at 11 on a couple of days sounds amazing! I'm pretty bummed about having class until 2pm on Fridays. But I do like the balance of Section 1 - I essentially have class 9-11am and 2-4pm every day (with 12-2pm on Fridays).

Section 3 is alright. Section 5 or that gets out at 11 on 2 days def has the best schedule.

And I'm away on vacation until orientation so no meetup for me. Ah guess I will have to show up on the first day not knowing anyone.

Section 2 is probably the worst. 9 AM every day with the exception of one day which is an 8:40 AM. And on Fridays we aren't done until 2



Off topic: do we pick up our IDs when we move in? My photo got approved but I didn't hear anything else about picking it up

I remember reading that if you submit your own picture they will have your card ready. You go to the same place to pick it up, and you don't need to wait to have your picture taken or for the card to print.

Not that advantageous I don't think since we are getting there before all the undergrads anyway
