Yeah. Don't expect it until next week. (hopefully Monday)


Checked my bank account this morning.. I received some of my loan refund but not all of the total amount.

This hasn't happened before and I find it strange.. anyone else experience this?

I know these often go unanswered, but maybe it'll be worth a shot.

I have Liebman for Torts, Katz for Contracts, and Johnson for Civ. Pro. and would GREATLY appreciate if anyone who's had these professors and is willing to discuss their testing/teaching style and what they like on their exams PM'd me. Thank you in advance.

Does anyone have any advice about switching units in UAH? I'm pretty unhappy in my living situation and would like to move to a studio. I've heard it's relatively easy/possible to move but wondering if anyone has had experience with the process?

Hahaha. It is not easy if you have a specific type of housing in mind. If you are willing to move to any vacant room in any apartment, it can be easy. If you want as studio, it could take a year. You can set-up an appointment with them and ask what is possible. Make sure you file on time!

How is being in law school in NYC? I am applying this fall to schools and obviously Columbia is a great school.

Im from the city but went to ugrad in Boston which is way more slower paced than NY. Just trying to get a feel in I would like law school there since i havent been in New York really for for 4+ years and havent lived there being 21+ Which is a whole other ball game

I don't think there's anything unique about the law school experience in NY.

For some reason I assumed college in NY would be hard so I left. I guess in law school most dont get distracted by NYC stimulation?

Columbia is pretty far away from everything else in the city. It's not that distracting.

Any recommendations for the best bar prep course? Billing to firm so cost is not a consideration. I'm leaning towards Kaplan for the $500 gift card at the moment but it seems like Barbri is what most people use.
