Truly though, it's one of the older lines in the system, which means the trains are dated, and it runs local. But swapping to the N train is easy and will drop you off right at NYU on 8th street. If I attend, that's how I plan to make my way in from my apartment in Bay Ridge.
I've found the D even faster (and the West 4th St station is closer to the law school). Usually, I just get off the R at 36th and take whichever comes first, N or D. But yeah, there's no reason to ride the R all the way from Bay Ridge into Manhattan, unless you're getting off below Canal/Grand.

It's closer to the law school? That's good to know! Currently I take the R from Bay Ridge into the Financial District, which is almost exactly 30 minutes on the train. Not fun, do not recommend.

Hmmmm...would you take the R over the G?? It's kind of like deciding which circle of purgatory you want to live in.

I live on the C, which is going away (if you believe the MTA hype), but my rent is ridiculously cheap so I'm not moving!
Chances are that the A will take over and I can take that to West 4th St, a block or two from campus. Actually, would the Spring St. station might be closer to the law school/Furman Hall?

Nope, West 4th St. is a lot closer. One building is right on the park, about a block and a half's walk from the W. 4th St. station at most, and the other building is right around the corner on Sullivan St., within spitting distance of the first.

Does anybody know when does NYU generally announce merit/need based awards?

So, I wasn't able to get my applications in until mid-late January. NYU has a clause in their instructions that states, "Applicants who wish to be considered for any of the School of Law's Scholarship and/or Academic Scholars programs should complete their applications by January 1 and have a complete law school report ready to be requested by our office no later than January 1."

-- My question to you all, how strict do you think they go by this? Does anyone know of an applicant that submitted after Jan 1 but received scholarship monies? This cycle or past. Thanks!


The "should" leads me to believe this is not an absolute rule, but it would be hard to receive anything if submitting after Jan 1. Thoughts?

Anyone else in the DC area here? We should put together some sort of meet up. I know some admitted UVA students have been doing this for a while.

I am in the DC area. I'd be down for a happy hour, if there are enough of us on here that want to come out.

today, I embarked on my plan to visit NYU because I can't go during the admit days. I awoke at 5:40am and took a 7am train to get to NYC and have time to visit the school in time to visit a class. I trekked through the snow and the blizzard, my feet got wet, it was cold, and I thought the wind would blow me away, but eventually I made it to Furman Hall, feeling pretty proud of myself. And then the security guard who met me at the door told me the whole campus was shut down because of the snow.

fail.

:evil:

I can still go on monday, but good lord.

lol. fair. mid-atlantic area... I check weather reports, but what can i say- im from the midwest originally, and I often forget that not everywhere is as sturdy/good at snow as we are. Plus I have other plans in the city for the weekend so i was coming one way or another.

Fair enough -- I still mock these cities for shutting down in a dusting like this, too, so I understand completely. Let us know what you think of the place Monday!

hey, I might actually be able to! I'll PM if it seems like it's in the works ;) do you like the class? I hear the word admin and immediately feel terrified/bored at the same time, but that's based on pure speculation since I don't know anything about what that class would actually entail...

I've heard horror stories about admin. This is a good one for visitors, though?

Rascoff is the man and he makes admin (usually a boring course) a ton of fun. He's also been noted to be on a short list of lawyers under 40 who might have a realistic shot at SCOTUS. You should definitely come into the class, but remember ... he will call on you.

I am still a 1L so I haven't gotten involved in any clinics yet but we just got an email detailing the upcoming clinics for 2010 - 2011. If you want I can forward it to you.

In at NYU, but will be withdrawing. Applied 1/19. Never got a complete email. Good luck everyone still waiting, a spot will be opening up for you!

Does anyone have an idea when non-named scholarships are announced? the earliest I saw on LSN was 3/25 but a full month after their application deadline seems long.

I called last week and they said mid to late march so looks like it'll be the same as last year
