Does anyone have any recommendations for a good place to get casebooks cut and bound?
The printing place on La Guardia does it (Advanced Copy Center? Something like that), and I'm pretty sure they give a NYU discount.

On Albert, 3/4 of my classes have 004 following them. Can I safely assume this means I am in section 4?
Yep, that's what that means! The last one without 004 should (I assume) be your lawyering section.

Where did people find course evals? I have been looking but haven't been able to find them. http://www.law.nyu.edu/academicservices/courseandfacultyevaluations Ahh thanks! I kept trying the Albert link, which... wasn't working np! You'll soon find that NYU's online interface is endlessly frustrating.

Any idea as to when we could expect our schedules/sections to be released? Says before orientation online, but when was it in years past?
I got mine exactly a year ago today, actually. Keep an eye out on Albert, I'd guess it'll be sometime over the next week or two.

Re: PI Summer Stipends by School

Are these all grants or are some of these loans? If I remember from my visits, Harvard does their summer funding as an actual grant, but Michigan gives summer funding in the form of an interest-free loan. It would seem to be a pretty important distinction. Thats a great layer to dig into! I’m not s...

Hi everyone!

Hey! I'm figuring out where to live next year and considering either campus housing or somewhere in Brooklyn (where I'm living now). However, I have a cat, and I see that there is a "no pets" rule for the campus housing. Is this a hard and fast rule, or do they turn a blind eye to small/nondisrupti...

How do first-semester class assignments work? Do you choose your fall courses? You're assigned to a roughly 90 person section, and your fall classes are predetermined.

Hi all! Was wondering about the comments re: anti prosecutor attitude. Is it a big deal? If you were someone interested in pursuing that type of thing would you see that as a serious deterrent?

How does NYU do in CA? Would it be insane to go to NYU over Berkeley with the goal of CA (with ties)?
