Are ASWs fun times?? Worth missing class?

Postby 1212 » Wed Feb 01, 2012 12:30 am

I am trying to decide whether to visit NYU. The pro is that they'll cover the cost, but I will have to miss class and fly across the country.

Have y'all found going to the ASWs of schools you are not very seriously considering (NYU is probably #6 on my list) to be enjoyable? I've never been to one, are they something you would go to for fun/networking?

I had a blast at ASWs and went to as many as I could. Got to meet people, eat and (usually) drink for free, and hang out in a different part of the country.

Even though you're not going to attend NYU, why wouldn't you take the opportunity for a FREE vacation to NYC?

i doubt it...maybe some partial reimbursement, but not completely free. I could be wrong though

Thanks for the input guys! :D

They are providing a $300 travel stipend which is more than my plane ticket. I'll be staying with a friend and will have most, if not all, meals provided. I may incur a few minor unanticpated costs that aren't factoring into my decision.

Thanks again, everyone!

how did you get the stipend? did you qualify for one of the full scholarships or what?

Yes I received the stipend because I am a finalist for one of the full scholarships. I haven't been selected yet though. :)

I just went to an event at NYU that admitted students were invited to and it was actually incredibly fun. I'd say if it's mostly free and you're a finalist for one of the big scholarships it's absolutely worth visiting. I'm sure you're already in some excellent law schools so who care about missing a bit of class at this point. :)

This was an interesting bump.
