    Campus Safety

    Security is stationed at all entrances and each member of the security team carries the weight of their job splendidly.

    Greek Life

    There is not much a Greek life, but it may be a good way to build connections with other students if you were part of the same organization they were.

    Clubs and Activities

    It is a good idea to join clubs, because most likely the members of the club had your professor and are willing to give you tips. There are some more elite clubs like the Dispute team and Trial teams, but most are more laid back.

    Bang for the buck

    Word of advice: Bring your own lunch, the lunch from the cafe is a bit expensive.

    What to do for fun

    What can I say...it is New York City. If you cannot find something to do in the city, then you just don't know how to have fun.

    Food and Dining

    As it is in NYC, there are many great restaurants available. Given its location in Tribeca, Chinatown, Little Italy and SoHo are all within walking distance...or one stop on the subway.

    Dorm Life

    The dorms are situated in Brooklyn Heights, which can be reached by subway from the school. Also the access to the subway is literally 10 yards from the front door of the dorm. Currently, the dorms are situated in an old hotel and have the usual amenities short of a cleaning staff.

    Academic Rigor

    Like any Law School, in order to succeed you must put in the effort. If you can get the syllabus early, plan to read at least one week ahead. If you do not read then you will not understand the class.

    Tips for prospective students

    1st. Take every opportunity you can. Even if it does not apply to you now. 2nd. If the professor is doing a lecture or event that is not directly associated with your class, because the professors take notice of who attends. 3rd. Depending on where you live, plan your day two hours in advance in case of train or subway delays. 4th. Watch your budget.

    In three sentences

    If you get an opportunity to go to New York Law School take it. The facilities, location and faculty are all top-notch and there are many programs that can help you succeed.
