Transferring / Part-time to NYU?
« on: July 04, 2006, 01:14:04 PM »
Hi, has anyone ever transferred from part-time to NYU?  I know they stipulate 28 credits minimum and 32 max.  Does that mean I won't be able to transfer after 1L?  But if I wait till after 2L my credits will be over the max limit.

Any info/advice appreciated!

Hey Cannotpick, just wanted to say a big "Thank you!" again and that your help and advice is really appreciated.  I especially appreciate your positive attitude.  I know law school is going to be tough and a its certainly a major endeavour and investment, but some of the negativity out there just drags you down and can make a soon-to-be 1L way anxious!  I plan on taking your advice and enjoying my last Summer before school starts.  I also plan on "enjoying" law school and enjoy learning the material rather than seeing it as a means to an end.  I'm hoping this way I won't be driven to craziness with stress.   

When do you think you will hear back from Columbia?  Are you close to deciding whether you will go?

Anyway, good luck with your decision.  Hey, if you decide to leave for Columbia, I'd love to have your outlines!   ;D  If you decide to stay, I hope I'll get to meet you some time.  Actually, that brings to mind another question I have for you.  Did you join any associations at all?  Were there any sort of social functions for the whole class?

Cool, thanks for the advice!  Guess I'm a little apprehensive about it all.  Excited but terrified at the same time.  What  was it like for you the month or so before you started 1L?

Cannotpick, what were the study aids you used?  Which ones do you recommend for each particular subject?  E&E's?  Emmanuels?

Thanks onepoint, I'm hoping my current laptop will do because I definitely don't want to buy another one at around $2000.  I thought I would get some opinions.  Plus, Lenovo has a special on which ends today!   

OingoBoingo, I'll be attending Brooklyn.  I haven't had the opportunity to check out the campus and won't be able to for another two weeks.  Which LS do you go to? What type of computer do you have?  Dell? Thinkpad?  Thanks for your help!

Hey hope you get in!  That may be a route I will choose down the road too.  Hope I get the marks at least to have that choice.  What ranking in class does Columbia generally accept for its transfers?

On another topic, I asked this on the other list, but I thought I would get a quick response from you, Cannotpick.  I am contemplating getting a smaller computer (Thinkpad probably) because I fear my current Dell with 14 inch screen may be hard to work with in class.  Are the desks really small?  How do you work on the computer and look at your book(s) at the same time while in class?

Hi all,

How do people find using computers in class - space-wise?  I have a Dell Latitude (15 inch screen) laptop but was thinking of buying a small 12 inch (probably Thinkpad).  Is there space for your computer and your books in class?  Should I get the 12inch or stick with my big laptop? 

Thanks for any advice!

Cannotpick,

Do most students at BLS use laptops in class?  Do you?  Doesn't the typing of keys distract people?

Thanks for the reassurance!  I actually can't wait to start.  I'm so excited!

I second that - fantastic post!  Thanks so much!  Can I ask you what your UG background is?  My biggest fear going into law school is that I come from a science background and wonder how difficult it will be to adjust to legal studies.
