Also, can someone post their schedule, just to give us 0L's an idea?
NYU has hands-down the best faculty anywhere (ok, maybe outside of Yale).
The professors are incredible, and the school really rolls out the big guns for the first-year classes. I mean, seriously; Arthur Miller wrote the fucking rules of civil procedure. Literally. He smacked down Scalia in open court. Who wouldn't want to learn Civ. Pro from him?
I have found the professors to be very accessible. The school provides a budget for each 1L professor to take students to lunch in small groups, and most take advantage of this. To be fair, I think that in general it takes less effort to get to know faculty at a small school than at a large one (like NYU), but I don't find this to be a real limitation. It just means you need to take the extra step of approaching professors you want to get to know.
As for the schedule, I don't want to post mine (it will out me to my classmates, and I'm not 100% ready to do that). But see if you can access this without a password
. It changes a bit, but hypothetically, you might have Civ Pro in A block, Contracts in F block, and Torts in E block your first semester. In addition, you might have Lawyering scheduled in M-U block, but it wouldn't meet all the time.
