anyone had orientation?

<p>thanks so much for your answers guys!!!</p>

<p>NYUGirlie are you from cali? i remember reading it in another thread?</p>

<p>yup...newport....represent!</p>

<p>u?</p>

<p>do sternies have placement tests?</p>

<p>im from palos verdes ( i dont know if you know where that is) its like 30 minutes up the 405 from newport. are u going to session C?</p>

<p>yeah..i've heard of it...
session c..early arrival! u?</p>

<p>im arriving early but im not staying at NYU...im staying with some friends of mine for tuesday night.... i didnt know about early arrival when i was planning my trip.</p>

<p>What's the math test like? Is it just general stuff, like a harder version of the SATs, or is there more specialized with Calculus questions etc? Should I study for it?</p>

<p>i heard its really easy</p>

<p>Anybody learn anything at orientation, or otherwise, about which laptops work well, or not well, with NYU's network?</p>

<p>Why would a specific laptop have an affect on your ability to connect to the network??? As long as it has a working network card, it's not going to make a difference...</p>

<p>You're probably right, but a friend is heading to Colgate, and Colgate advised everyone that they had to have their laptops pre-approved before they could hook up to the network, and that got me thinking. (I think too much, such men are dangerous.)</p>

<p>If you're deciding between mac and pc, I suggest getting a mac. I asked at orientation, and it seems like most students use mac (esp. in tisch) because most of the nyu computers at the kimmel center and bobst library are macs.</p>

<p>Colgate didn't say computers have to be "pre approved" they just sent information about what mininmum requirements were in order to fully utilize the University network. Mostly that, if a PC it needs to run Win 2000 XP Pro (not Home). A few other recommendations but no preapproval.</p>

<p>thanks for the clarification mhc! </p>

<p>by the way, for those post-orientation, do AP credits get you out of the MAP math/science classes? On another post someone was saying that for the class of 2009, AP scores don't get you out of math. And, if so, does this mean everyone has to take the placement test? The stuff that they sent in the mail seemed to imply that AP scores [4 or 5] meant you didn't have to?</p>

<p>I'm a little confused, and dreading the idea of taking math...heh. Any info would be much appreciated :)</p>

<p>AP credits do get you out of math and/or science. You need at least a 4 on them though. (Damn my 3s in physics and calc...argh)</p>

<p>AP credits CANNOT get you out of a math course at Stern. They can only provide advanced placement (if you want).</p>

<p>Oh, yeah sorry I forgot to clarify. I was talking about CAS, I'm not sure about the other schools. Also, if you're a pre-med major or something that has to do with math and you're going to have to take math anyway, the AP test score just places you in a higher level.</p>

<p>?, I tried to edit a tag in college life... and now I'm.... here?</p>

<p>Well, might as well introduce myself :) </p>
