As the dean stated in his morning address open house is basically to invite people in and show the school (at its best) I geuss that is why the overwhelming niceness just seemed a bit much for me.
I actually attended the mock class on the death penatly and I too enjoyed the style and manner in which he taught. He kept me going with his small jokes and was not at all as scary as I thought he would be. After the class I attended the Teachers are from Mars students are from Venus seminar and I did not learn anything new from it. It was just a basic "this school is great" seminar. One of the professors where actually boring me to death and the other seemed interesting. The students were not able to answer some questions and I as an evening student was left rather unsatisfied in that department. (I will email in order to get some more information). After this I attended the Financing Law School, now this was something I very much needed. Only 18500 a year in loans while tuition is 29000. Scary!! It is quite expensive, however I did not receive my financial aid package yet so I will keep my fingers crossed. After I took the tour of the school. I must say the tour guide was boring. However, I actually like the intimate feel I got from the school. Coming from a big school this was good for me.
Like the rest, I too feel that they should invest some more into the building. It is a bit old. Lunch was good.
The location of the school is nice, Tribeca, Court houses. I actually lived on Lafayette last year and I enjoyed it.
My only fear is that I have not had anything to compare this school to? Anyone visit Hofstra or any other schools who can compare them to NYLS?
