I'll be up there the week after the 4th, to go apt hunting. As for dorms, the price is very appealing but between the rules and my desire to live alone the first year, I think I'll have to pass. As someone who comes from a Jesuit High School I can attest to how stickler those Jesuits are with their rules.

this sounds just fine, but i can't do it this week (so i'd prefer next...)
should also just keep in mind that most people will have off on friday, due to 4th of july...some may also skip town a bit earlier as well....wed/thurs could even work
So let's say happy hour on wednesday of next week? I heard that Pony Bar on 10th Ave and 45th is pretty good for happy hour (cheap beer and not too loud).

yes lets. i'd be down for 7/1. and if we wanna go even cheaper there's 123 burger shot beer a few blocks up from pony.

Thanks to everyone who gave me housing suggestions. Astoria is lovely, and I have some good friends raising a son there, but I am used to sacrificing for Manhattan. My current apartment has no living room (my room is almost studio sized, though). It is, however, three blocks from Union Square, and two blocks from Cardozo. I believe I might be closer than their dorm. (I should probably pop over to Cardozo 2012 to see if anyone wants my lease.)


Who else applied for the Stein Scholars, btw? There must be more than three of us.

Oh Silenz, good luck! We had better hurry, though. People are being interviewed as we speak. I know I have no chance, but I seriously can't help myself.

I'm just happy Fordham has a good number of PI kids in the class of '12/'13.

Don't worry; mine isn't exactly done, either. My macbook picked a most inconvenient time to crash. (Seriously, wtf? I've been using Macs forever with no complaints until now. Does anyone know a good repair place in NYC?)

BTW, I finally watched Michael Clayton. Damn.

I kind of want to start reading for school so I'm looking to buy Introduction to the Study of Law, Third Edition (2009) and found it for $45 on LexisNexis. Has anyone else looked? Any cheaper at other sites?

I ordered Getting to Maybe. I heard it was difficult to read without having started classes.

i'm about 100pgs in so far...i would not say that its necessarly difficult, but they do cite a number of cases and do use some terminology/etc that is probably common knowledge after having taken classes, etc

i'm just using it as an intro type piece/way to get me in that 'bigger picture legal way' of thinking

but then again, i'm only 100+ pages into it, so maybe when they get into more detail i'll become completely lost

I'm reading Getting to Maybe also. I've decided to skip the entire section about policy, since it did not seem productive to delve into that at this point. On to reading their practical tips.

Is it the '99 edition? Sorry I'm a bit lost. Have no idea what I should be reading.

I have yet to receive any packet yet, but to answer your other question you still need to:

1. Send two passport size photos with your name and division (day or evening) on the back to the student affairs office

2. Send your final transcripts in

3. Send in your immunization form to health services.

I got this letter. The AEP is a two week preview program for incoming 1L's; like Law Preview, but free. It's "available to an academically diverse group of students and those who come from backgrounds traditionally underrepresented in the field of law." You learn how to brief a case, time management and note taking, some legal writing, outlining, etc. It begins on July 27.

I would go if I could, but I won't have my caseload resolved by then, and I can't afford to leave my job so early and be in NYC for three weeks without money. Le sigh.
