A New Framework for Success:

The Office of Student Affairs is proud to host the March 6 Milbank Tweed Forum dedicated to helping you fine-tune your academic approach.   This workshop is a follow up to our January panel titled “Making Sense of Your 1L Grades.”  Join Professor Troy Mckenzie and fellow students as we discuss ways to retool your exam taking skills and explore new approaches to studying. In an effort to build upon your first exam experience, we will highlight best practices for outlining and using outlines as your exam prep framework. Click here for more information. We look forward to seeing you there!

To submit a FIX request, go to http://www.law.nyu.edu/operations/facilities/index.htm. Once on the page, select an Academic Building or a Residence Hall then enter your net ID and password.
