Nyu is legitttt so far. To the poster who asked about clothes, most people are casual.

The only thing (and I lold when it happened - other tlsers will confirm this) was when a 2L on a student panel was fielding a question about biglaw, and he goes "if you come here and want biglaw, you will get biglaw, 100%. I legit couldn't believe he said that.

Me and Birdlaw are in a crim class right. Very laid back.

Taking ?s

hahaha tbf penguin might be a bit too out there. needs to be something that blends into the conversation. like the guys from that one movie state troopers who would replace the word "now" with "meow".

Ahhh I'm so jealous that you're there right now! Quick question - have you been able to get a feel for the atmosphere there yet? Does it seem to be pretty supportive, competitive, or somewhere in between?

As cliche as it sounds, it does seem very laid back here and not competitive. ESP in this crime class they all just like laugh and help each other out ad what not. Also: pretty much everyone has fbook and gchats up haha

i only visited for a day myself but i can at least say it was VERY hard to tell on the surface with things like this, and i dont think there's too much of a difference in competitiveness, as all the people there were obviously very intelligent and motivated individuals like at any t6/t10/twhatevermakesyounottrollmeforstoppingatacertainnumber. that said, most of the people there didnt just arbitrarily choose nyu over cls or chicago and, combined with the pi/village things, a different breed of personality is somewhat noticeable... personally, i found it a little, teensy bit more laid back and friendly than what i picked up at cls (which is kind of why i decided to ed to nyu instead). but either way, there still is a curve, and this is a perennial top 5 law school, so to say the students there aren't also extremely competitive would just not make sense.

We're sitting in an auditorium right now and theclient just keeps on hollering out penguin. No joke.

Crim class was really chill. Lots of awesome discussion. I was definitely impressed.

It doesn't sound like it's working though. I think it should we should notice a loose "thread" on our shirt or something. And yes I am this cheesy IRL. :(

Depending on the schedule I'm down for a lunch or something prior to this to avoid having to scream penguin in large crowds of fellow peers.

I will wear the most bedraggled sweater I can find. There will be loose threads everywhere. You will recognize me.

Oh man, NYU law revue is at the top of a long line of arts/theatre students signing up for a JD!

I initially read that as "bedazzled" and it made me really happy.

I read that as "Beadazzled"... which is the name of a store near my house which sells beads. It made me kind of confused.
