So I have a somewhat random question, do current students find themselves eating out a lot? I have a really hard time sticking to a food budget, mostly because I'm a snob, so if I'm going to be eating out a lot I'm gonna have to figure out how to deal with that.markakis wrote:missv463 wrote:i think if you are pursuing a jd/llm the semester away restrictions are different.
but as someone already said, if you do 2 or more semesters away, the question is, are you really earning a Cornell degree? it made sense to me when they discussed it during ASW. oh, and i don't think people want to do 2 semesters away because cornell sucks, but rather because they had the opportunity to.
but yeah, call the admissions office for the official reponse.
I really hope this is the case. i'll definitely present my case to whom it may concern when the time comes. I love Cornell, but I'm all about pursuing my dreams.
Question for Cornell students: how far is Myron Taylor from the main undergrad campus? Is there ever any occasion for undergrad students to intermingle with grad students?
At the ASW they said the change they made for JD/LLM folks was to allow them to take more credits on their semester away, not to let them spend more time away, and only because they have take more credits.
My sense on the 1 semester limit was something like the ABA was getting all hung up on people spending an entire year not actually at the school... but I don't know why I thought that so....
why, they make it sound like they are in control of the policies of the other school involved. when i say JD/LLM, I actually mean that my LLM will be coming from another institution and the JD from cornell. If the ABA is cracking down on such a program then it should somehow reflect on the policies of the institutions that let JD candidates from other ABA-approved schools to participate in such programs. Anywho....
