There is no need to dress business casual. Our orientation included a long walk in the heat. I'm pretty sure I wore shorts, a tee and flip flops and most people were dressed similarly

If they make me wear an XL bright yellow shirt around NYC I will be...unhappy.

Purple on the other hand, I can live with :)

Then do they make you streak through Furman Hall and do mystery shots?

Anbryce Scholarship, can anyone give some more info on this? I'm the first person in my family to attend schooling beyond college, but I'm not exactly from a "poor" background more like middle class. Can I still apply or no?

AFAIK, Ann Bryce is for anyone who is the first in their family to attend grad school regardless of economic background. I would also be interested in hearing more if anyone has actually received this award.

Could you name some of the professors who have reputations for being great teachers? It's so easy to research the big names measured by scholarly work, but much harder to find the great teachers. In my grad school, often, these two were not the same, and the impact of the great teachers on their students was immeasurable. I'd love to be able to research some of them, sit in on their classes before deciding, etc.

Friedman was mentioned earlier. It'd be great to hear some more.


Anyone else want to weigh in on this? I liked most of the professors I observed, but all in all, would you say most of your professors are good teachers, or are there a lot of really boring professors?

I actually hear most of the big name professors are really good teachers too (Miller, Epstein, Stevenson). My personal highlights of professors have been Friedman, McKenzie, Siegel, Scott, and Upham, all for different reasons- Friedman's class was always compelling and easy to pay attention to, McKenzie and Upham are funny, Siegel likes to tell funny stories, give advice and is just an awesome guy and Scott is really funny/nice/knowledgeable. I had one professor I didn't care for (who I won't name) and 2 or 3 others who were just kind of boring/not engaging. Overwhelmingly I've been pleased with my professors.

Anyone on here an IILJ Scholar? If so would you mind if I PM you to ask a question about the application process?

Thanks

Hey! Thanks for answering all these questions.

I am trying to figure out where I should apply early decision next fall. I have a 3.6 GPA and a 173 LSAT score. Average softs and possibly 1 year work experience.

I don't really care which school (NYU or Columbia) that I go to - both seem equally nice. I don't really care whether in NY I end up living, all I care about is getting into one of these two schools. Which school do you recommend?

Would you guys mind chiming in on my situation (UCLA$$ vs. Duke$ vs. NYU) (here: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=151710 )? Since you guys know what's going on at NYU I'd really appreciate any input. Thanks a bunch.
