25 pages a night at Chicago? That's freakin sweet!
We used the Epstein book, and we did not come close to finishing the book. But a lot of the heavy reading load days involvled a combination of the book and supplements the teachers gave out in class. We didn't read 80 pages every night, and often had 20-30 page nights, but I had at least 1 or 2 nights in every class where we were assigned at least 80 pages. Now, as time went on we learned that we didn't have to read all of that, but as poor lowly first semester 1L's a month into the semester, we were all still very diligent. I wasn't even online in class yet at that point.
Z, Would you say the NYU environment is particularly collegial? Also, I don't think I can swing the on campus rent so I'll probably be living in Brooklyn, will this commute present huge challenges to a 1L? Thanks in advance.
How does the grading at NYU work? One of the main reasons I chose NYU of Georgetown is that the school apparently doesn't release class rank. I also got the impression that baically everyone gets a B or B+ so it's not as stressful as it could be. What's your impression of this? Also, what are your plans for this summer? Thanks for your input.
