Another non-trad here. Glannon's E & E for Civ Pro is a must!!!  Also pick up a copy of a surviving law school book.  I have one by Ramy you can have for free if you want it.  Prosser on Torts is a good call.  Also consider Perillo & Calamari on contracts. 

Sent you a PM.  :)

Check Craigslist.  I picked up 11 sets of flash cards for $75 and a million supplements (literally everything I could need 1L year, plus a couple of 2L ones) for about $5 each.  I was also able to introduce myself to two practicing attorneys in my area, which will be invaluable in the future, especially since one of them has offered to act as a mentor to me throughout LS and beyond.  The only thing I've been told to buy new is the Glannon CivPro E&E, since the FRCP changed in 2007 and the sixth edition uses the new rules.  Casebooks can be found on Craigslist, too--I picked up the full Chemerinsky casebook as well as his hornbook for just $10 total.

How hard is it to get accepted to the NYU tax LLM program?   

I've heard T14 with median grades and/or biglaw associate = auto admit
T2/3 = need top 20% or so.

Thank you! I appreciate the info.

Is there anyone on the forum who will be attending UO this fall?

Yeah, I haven't been able to find any substantial data on admission numbers for LLMs. If only LSN would publish that portion of its website at some point....  ::)

NYU tax and a few others excluded

NYU tax is still a lot easier to get into than NYU JD.

How hard is it to get accepted to the NYU tax LLM program?  If I get a tax law certificate with my JD at a mid-T2 (80ish), what kind of grades/class rank do I need to have to get into the program?  Thank you!

Book Sales and Trades / Re: Looking for Sum and Substance Audio CDs

Great; thank you! I actually already have those, but was told the Sum & Substance would be much more comprehensive. If those will be sufficient, I'd love to save the cash.
