Can you current student recommend which commercial study aids to purchase?  It seems like everyone has a different opinion, but I'd love yours!

Thanks for the insight!  Hardaway sounds hilarious, although his exam sounds insane...good to know, though.  I have a feeling that I will be on the love side of Miccio since I am big into feminist issues and gay rights as well. She sounds fascinating. It's too bad that nobody liked Pepper in your section because I am really excited for Torts. I guess we'll see.

Killtheheadlights, the only reason I know about the schedule is because I called the registrar (getting antsy) and they had be added to myweb.  You can check there under the registration tabs. 



Ladivina,im in your section :) I just joined this forum but anyways, I guess I'll be meeting you soon.




Hi!  So, I'm pretty sure that I know who you are because you friended me on facebook (I think, based on your screen name).  I'm glad that you are in my section...my friends who are current/former students have good things to say about our profs, for the most part. Looking forward to meeting you!

I have a friend that lives in the Covington.  She really likes it...it's pretty nice, although I don't love the area it's in.  It is not within walking distance of DU.  I'm building a townhome in Lowry, which isn't walking distance either, but I LOVE the area. 
Question for one of the current students:  Do you part in the law lot?  Is it pretty easy to get a parking pass?  The website said that passes go on sale on May 20.  Thoughts?

I'm getting SO excited! I still have't decided whether I am going to take the summer preview course or not, and I'm stressing about what kind of computer to buy, but I AM PUMPED!

Well, to address your second question first, I am a Colorado native and certainly not an east coast hater.  However, I am a professional opera singer (big career jump for me, right?) and so I spend a lot of time back east for auditions and such. Not that it is east coast, but I spent 4 years in Chicago while getting my masters at Northwestern. I loved it, but am not a fan of the midwest. Colorado people LOVE Colorado, but are too happy to hate anything.  The thing that you will probably not like about Denver is that, compared to east coast cities, it doesn't have a great "city identity" if you know what I mean.  It is a very transient city, so you won't find many natives, and I personally think that the sports fans are very fair weather.  Anyway, no one will hate you because you are from the east coast. 

In regards to EVERYTHING about the ASD, I will try my best. The Dean welcomed us to the school and spoke about why he chose to become Dean a couple years ago.  Then a student panel took about an hour to answer any questions.  Then a  faculty panel did the same.  At that point we took a tour of the building, which is amazing.  Then we split into break out sessions based on our interests.  I went to the International Law session and the Trial Advocacy/Moot Court session.  The head of the International Law program is AMAZING.  Professor Nanda is totally the type of person that could mentor you into great opportunities in this field.  I also really like how practical everything is at DU.  It seems like we should have tons of time to practice our trial skills.  After the break out sessions there was a reception and I met some very nice people. 
Other thoughts:
-I love their Clinical/Internship programs
-I felt a little old...not really old, but I am 27 and could definitely tell that I was not coming straight out of undergrad. My friend who is 29 and a 2L said it is not a problem for him, but still, I hope there is a more mature crowd.
-I really want to be selected to go to the Hague during the summer (it is a writing contest).
-The international trial team sounds like it is doing very well (Matthies, any thoughts?)

Um, I am happy to answer more of your questions, but that's all I have for now, skinsfan.

I'm not sure if anyone posted, but I went and loved it!  What would you like to know?

I haven't decided yet.  My others aren't due until the 15th, but I'm not sure if it is even worth delaying the inevitable because I'm pretty sure that I want to go to DU.  Paying multiple seat deposits is ceratainly allowed, but it's kind of like burning money, if you know where you really want to go. 

Matthies...may I ask you what kind of laptop you have?  Thanks!

Yep, they are due today.  I just paid mine over the phone!  I'm sure that if you haven't gotten a decision from them yet they will give you a different deadline for seat deposits.  Now I just have to decide if I want to make any more deposits or if my decision is made. Why is this decision hard? I really want to stay in Denver. It's just hard to close doors of opportunity I guess.  Good luck to you all as you make decisions!

I am also about to make my deposit.  This is terrifying!  I really think that I am making the right decision, but who can be sure?  Anyway, is there a facebook group for the class of 2011 yet?  What about a thread in the decided forum? 

Go DU! I think...
