in Denver, it seems as though there is exactly the opposite bias. if grades are all the same, those with work experience are favored to those right out of undergrad.
By the way, I read on DU's website that the light rail pass is only good at certain stops in Denver. My wife and I are moving to Sante Fe/Mineral and I was wondering if I will be able to take the light rail for free from that far away?
The light rail pass is good for all stops on the light rail. I have used my pass, and been checked, on every light rail route. Here is the website: http://www.du.edu/transcenter/#passes
Hey all... I received my schedule as well
Civil Procedure: Marsh
Criminal LAw: Still doesn't have a name...
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. And thanks SoManyQuestions, for the tip to check out the evals.
I move in three days!!! Finally!
I got my schedule of classes today! I can't wait! Matthies, can you give me any info on the following Profs?
Any insight would be greatly appreciated!
The new website at DU is a significant upgrade. I was impressed. I am getting ready to plunk down my second tuition deposit.
Hmm.. I was under the impression that you use Substantial Factor to determine factual causation. I'm pretty sure it is used as a test when But-For doesn't work. For instance, in a multiple-sufficient cause scenario (two fires burning the woods) but-for won't work because even if one fire had not occurred, the other one would have done the same amount of damage. As such, you would use substantial factor in order to show 'factual' causation.
I haven't ever seen substantial factor discussed in relation to proximate cause.... proximate cause is more of a matter of public policy/duty than it is about actual causation. Even with the intervening superseding causes, the idea isn't to determine whether the intervening actors are substantial factors, but rather if their actions were so unforeseeable/extraordinary that liability should be cut off.
