Does anyone have any insight on what it's like to attend law school with an SO? Does your SO get bored of hearing about law related stuff? is it hard to balance the academic/social demands of 1L with a serious relationship? I know this isn't specifically NYU related but since I'm planning to go to NYU in the fall I thought I would ask here :)

Yes, your SO will get bored of hearing about law school stuff, so try to be a normal-ish human being at home.

I don't think it's any harder to balance the academic demands of 1L with a relationship than it would be to balance a full-time job. You might become slightly more intolerable around exam time. When it comes time to get your summer jobs (and beyond), you should have already discussed long-term plans with your partner to make sure that you're making a decision that works for both of you. That might mean that you can't apply for a really sweet gig in Alaska or that you have a harder time getting a clerkship (because you can't apply as broadly), etc. Same as any major life decision you make with a partner: you need to communicate with each other and have clear expectations.

In terms of social demands, it really depends on what you consider those to be. If you absolutely must attend bar review every week and refuse to invite your SO along, then it'll probably be a drag on the relationship. If not, then it won't.

Short version: if this is a decision you made together, it's not going to be that big a deal. Lots of people make it through law school with a significant other.

Hello, this is just a curiosity question, but how is the law library? Is it a nice building or old and busted? Is it enough seating? Is it large, medium, or small? Any pictures would be great.
