NYU Class of 2007


aurora

I have just read through all the materials and it says that the first lottery goes through everyone's choices on a random basis. I think this implies that they wait for everyone to submit their forms and then randomly allot courses without reference to how early or late you put in your form (or to the alphabet etc). So, 'yes' is the answer to Rippy's question I think.

But feel free to contradict me!

Anyone else as delighted as I am that they have lifted the onerous requirements for core courses in the ILS programme? :)

Hi everybody!

My name is Luciana, I am from Argentina and I too will be joining NYU's LLM in International Legal Studies this year.

As for housing, I will be living off-campus, in the upper west side, ´cause of course apartments are much cheaper and bigger. As aurora said, it is really striking that they suggest that the liviing expenses are aprox $ 18000 a year and yet the on-campus housing is much more expensive!!

Haven't made up my mind about courses yet! I want to do them all! Any good or bad reviews on faculty of the ILS program?

Regards,


Luargentina,

A friend of mine is looking for an place in NYC. Did you use any real state company to help u find your apartment? If so, can you give their web site or phone number?

There are some big real estate brokers that you can use, but be prepared to pay a fee of 15% of one year's rent. You can try www.corcoran.com, www.citi-habitats.com, www.douglaselliman.com, or some others. I would try to use www.craigslist.com and try to find a no fee apartment. Just my 2 cents.

Thankyou!
These firms were also listed in the NYU website, wonder if there is any other...
You will be staying off campus also?
Anyone here applied for D'Agostino?

You can't walk down the street here without finding a real estate broker's office. There are tons of them. A good way to find others is to look at listings on craigslist and then follow the links to the broker's websites. I live in Brooklyn, about 30 minutes fro NYU.

Hello,
I am most probably joining NYU for the General Studies LLM. I really don't know whether off-campus housing is cheaper, but for me the social life and experiences campus housing offers is important - my undergrad hostel days were some of the best years of my life. Also - is the NYU estimate of USD1500 per month living costs a realistic estimate? Please tell me it's on the higher side and one can get by with half of that.

I had a chat with someone in the financial aid office (who was v. kind and helpful by the way)... and he reckoned that rent, cost of books etc aside, that living expenses would be $350-$450 a month. Personally I think it might be a little low, esp. for someone who has to travel to the campus (that reminds me that a monthly subway pass is $74 per month) but it's still considerably less than $1500!

Is that what you wanted to hear Balaji? :)

Hey, thanks, aurora!
If you add on-campus living and books to that estimate, you are looking at around $1500-1700 per month! That's not a small figure...

Hi!
I didn' use a real state company. A friend of mine has been living in NY and she rented this apartment two years ago. I know she has a brother that lives in the US, though, which made it easier for her to find an apartment and with the guarantees they demand.
Sorry I can't help.
