Here is the biggest piece of advice I will regarding books - do NOT buy all the overpriced legal writing books. Now many of you are still going to want to drop a couple hundred on them, but when they sit in your locker all semester and you never ever opened them...you were warned! If must buy them and the editions haven't changed, mine are exactly where I left them on my locker and are unopened, so let me know.

Also, don't read the book for orientation. You're welcome. Definitely DO NOT go to the technology seminar unless you need to be taught how to use the Internet.


Is the internet the same thing as the iterwebs thing I have heard of??????

Oh, and thanks....

I only want the bare minimum - I'll figure out which supplements work for me within a week or two (though any tips are greatly appreciated)
If you will be willing to part with those, let's get in touch in August and I'm sure we can come up with an equitable arrangement

Thanks, by thè way

dingbat wrote:Question for the 1L/2Ls on this site.
At what point do we find out what books we need?
Is it in the syllabus and is that released a few weeks before class?
Also, how often has a professor changed the required books?

Basically, I'd like to know
1) if I'll have time to order the books online
2) if there's a chance that I'll order the wrong book.

I've had previous classes where a professor changed the edition at the last minute, or where the syllabus was just wrong (teacher wanted a different book).

What are the odds of me getting screwed this way?

I've never purchased a book from the bookstore, have only ordered from Amazon/bought from friends. Have never had a problem. Amazon offers their "Prime" service for free to 1Ls (or used to) and you can get your books 2nd day, that way. Just keep checking your course syllabus. Also, if anyone has Greene for Crim next year, let me know what your text is - I'm selling mine, cheap. 8)

Has anyone that got in off the WL recently received any scholarship information?

So are you saying they insinuated that there will not be movement, or that there will be movement after the second deposit? Also, when is the second deposit due for accepted applicants?

Second deposit is due June 1st
I figure that's when they see how many they lost to other waitlists

So, dumb question for the students already there. I am a college football fanatic and was wondering, can we get student football tickets for the Fordham games and how much are they?

There are some, well, less than safe areas in the Bronx as well....

We plan on moving to Bayside Queens. It's where my wife was born and raised so the stadium is a quick trip across the Whitestone for me....

Also, my final semester wasn't too impressive, should I avoid sending in an updated transcript until it's asked for?


Would be curious to hear people's thoughts to this as well...

Works for me..... Big 10 has some teams I can get behind; not as much as my beloved SEC football but some great games nonetheless.....

To my knowledge, graduate students are not eligible for free tickets, but may purchase tickets at student rates.

Yeah I most likely will be at Tonic East for most of the PSU games (unless I can score some tix and go out before the semester gets crazy!) Watching on TV is not the same =/
