Did these 3Ls hold this opinion about Law Review, too? Or just all the non-LR journals?

We need a code word/phrase in case you wonder if someone is a fellow tlser, with an appropriate code response. Any suggestions?

Works for me. Though I don't expect you to be hard to find. Where's the kid that won't shut up about Israel? <3

TBH, I think my strategy is to just find TL and wait for everyone else to join. I want to steal some of his glorious presence.

Yesssss, I have no idea what most of you look like, so we'll have to do the "I'm someone from the internet!" conversation.

Also, I'll be the guy with one of these:

I haven't decided which. I'm thinking (Left to right ABCD) B and D.

Nice. Oh, have you had a chance to look through the book you got for Christmas? Is it any good? Also I'm expecting a new lens to arrive tomorrow. I'm very excited. I'll definitely taking it to NYC with me.

ETA: B and E? What's option E?

I did! It's very comprehensive. Thanks again!

ETA: Which lens?

ETA2: E is all of them or "joke option."

Sigma 30/1.4

You would look pretty awesome with 4 cameras around your neck. But I would avoid it if you don't want everyone asking you why you're going to law school and not being a photographer professionally. :lol:

Congrats! Mind sharing when you submitted?

I really don't expect anything from NYU, but it's hard to make a decision without hearing back first...

Niiiice call on the Sigma. I've heard about and seen some really great stuff from their f/1.4 line.

For sure. I submitted Oct 31, later than my others b/c I was waiting for the special rec. I think that's still pretty early, so hopefully anyone can hear. Best of luck!

Hmmm... I'm wondering if they're doing these in the order they were received. I was bumping up against the deadline when I submitted, so maybe there's a chance I won't hear back for a while?

:lol: Wishful thinking?

I booked a hotel near Penn Station (Times Square South/Chelsea/Garment District are the areas tossed around on the hotel search sites). Subway got me to ASW in about 3 min.

That...looks pretty awesome. Would be a really cool place to shoot some models (with cameras, not guns).

The Jane is also a really awesome place to go out! It's semi-hard to get in to though, so you'd have to go early (~11 pm or before)

This is why I'm so excited/grateful that I'll most likely be in NYC next fall :)

There is just so much that is awesome. And, even if I don't have the money to actually go out on what free time I have, the photographic opportunities are just insane.

It should be said that I am saying this after all of one visit to the city itself.

I fell in love after one visit and after 4 years here, I still love it more every day. I'm excited for you!!

HOLY SHIT! Just got the call, interview for RTK scholarship out of nowhere. Never expected this, especially not now. WOW. The interview sounds really intimidating though...

A free trip to New York sounds good though.... :D

Edit: Man, I'm so torn now! I feel like I should decide now-ish because the turnaround time of 3 days is too little to make an informed decision. RTK was my absolute dream when I was first looking at schools, but now I'm not so sure. I am still leaning towards Harvard because I think I'll have the same public interest opportunities (possibly more due to Harvard's name, connections, international reputation etc) and the fact is with the Low Income Protection Plan at HLS, I won't have a problem taking a non-profit job. I guess I don't see how the RTK would be THAT much better than taking a low-paying job out of HLS. Either way I wouldn't have to pay much - if any - of my loans. I do feel like I would love the atmosphere at NYU, the focus on public interest, and being in NYC to do internships on the side with organizations I love. Another downside to NYU, though, is grades. I really don't want to have to worry about grades.

Congrats!! No downside to doing the interview though, right? I'm doing the interview for the AnBryce even though I have some idea of where I'd like to end up already (and 3 days is a ridiculous turnaround). Does this mean you'll be at the March 30th ASW too?
