New Coke Baby!

And per Frank the Tank, we're going STREAKING!

New Coke was an unmitigated disaster and is taught in business schools as an example if what not to do


Unless of course you believe the conspiracy theory that they introduced it specifically to make old coke more desired and increase sagging market share in the long term. Which it did both when the old coke came back regardless if it was intentional or not. Thus, the reference to unintentional marketing.

Soooooo, if I can't wear a suit day one how do I establish mylef as the ultimate gunner? :wink:

In all seriousness I'll be the old guy that looks like my tar minus the jungle hat. Come up and say hi. I would love to meet some of the folks from here.

I still have a onesy around somewhere.

(onesy = slang for a flight suit indicating the nonflyers in the USAF's view that pilots are overgrown pampered babies) aka bags aka 8 zippers and a tude

I am in Section 5. I have Ethan Lieb for Contracts. Deborah Denno for Criminal Law. Leslie Cheblie for Legal Writing. And Carl Minzner for Property.

Any 2Ls or 3Ls have any advice on these teachers or possible class outlines?

Do we have any other Section 5ers out there?


Lieb is a giant douche. I didn't have him for contracts but those who have told me he liked to concentrate on the holdings of judges. Which is ridiculous in a contracts class.

Minzner is a GREAT guy and you will learn a lot. He's a great professor to start your first semester because his teaching method is very cognizant of it.

ETA: as for class outlines, I recommend you join a student society on westlaw- TWEN. LALSA always has a lot of outlines to offer.



Thanks..its good to know I'll have at least one great professor even if the other one is a doucher.

By the way, does anyone know where the Orientation Schedule is posted? I can't seem to find it.

I am not in NYC yet so couldn't attend AEP.

I am pretty obvious even without the uniform or a name plate.

Now that you're back on top of things, it's all you DB.

And I will be moving and such in the next few days so won't be around much myself.

a little confused by Kathryn's email. Where do we see our section and syllabi? Will our syllabi be posted on my.fordham under "Student Detail Schedule" or somewhere else? I can see my schedule, but that's it.

That is very helpful. Thanks. Anyone having issues with Fordham's admitted student website? It seems like the entire Fordham Law website is down. I want to take another look at the orientation schedule and checklist, but there seem to be tech issues...
