If you want to work in Denver, you should come to CU. It's kind of a "duh" actually. I just finished 1L there. Many of my classmates have legal jobs for the summer. New building is sweet. Boulder's great. Job prospects in Denver are good.

Denver! Denver is great for young people. (Think LoDo). Also, the winters are very, very nice. More sunshine than almost anywhere in the country, and many winter days are shirtsleeve days.  We do get snow, but it melts off quickly, and I for one really like the variety.  Reasonable cost of living. Low crime for a big city. Rocky Moutains right in your backyard.

I have heard that the Denver area is overly religious in a weird way, is that true?

No way. Colorado Springs is a conservative place, though, but it's not Denver. Denver/Boulder are in no way overly religious. Although there are lots of Buddhists in Boulder because of Naropa. But it's just not the same.

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Vandy vs. Colorado Vs. Minnesota

I'm a 1L at CU (but only for 3 more weeks! Yay!) and I say if you want to practice in CO then go to CU.  I have never regretted my decision to come here. It's beautiful, laid back, the faculty is generally great, and our bar pass rate is over 90%.  Just a note about those class standing scholarships, though: everyone comes to law school thinking he/she will be top 1/2-- and 1/2 of them are disappointed. CU's incoming student body has a ridiculously high median GPA, and Stuje1 is right about people choosing to come here over higher-ranked schools. It may throw off the curve a bit. But seriously? After first semester grades came out I thought there'd be a lot of depressed people in my classes, but it just wasn't like that. I think it's one of the most humane places to study law.  The first-year professors take preparing 1Ls for their first semester exams very seriously, and that includes dishing out a healthy dose of perspective along with exam-taking advice. All in all, it's been great. And Boulder is awesome, and it's not as hippy-ish as you might think.  Good luck with your decision!

i hope that isn't some evil ploy to glue us to our computers all night...

Aw, I'm sorry.  No, it's absolutely true to the best of my recollection.  Remember, though, we're talking about December results, with the holidays and all that. Maybe LSAC people just wanted to get outta there...

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Latest time of day for LSAT score delivery?
« on: October 19, 2005, 05:22:28 PM »
We got ours last December in the evening.  I think scores started coming out around 7:00 p.m. or so Mountain time.  That's 9:00 Eastern.  I didn't believe it at first.  For the October test, though, it was more afternoon-like I think.

It was well into the evening last December when scores were released.  I want to say it was about 7:00 or so Mountain time, which is 9:00 Eastern.  I had given up on scores being released that day and because of the time I didn't believe the first 'Scores are out!' thread. But they were.

Oh you poor people. I would have thought you'd have your scores by now.  I took it twice, last October and December, and the scores came super early both times.  I have a friend waiting for this score report.  All I can tell you is that I found out scores had been released right here on LSD. (I kept checking...) I didn't get my email, nor did my score show up on LSAC's site, until well after (15-20 min.) I heard scores were being sent out.  Good luck to you!  It really is a big deal.

I'm a 1L with three kids.  We moved out of state so I could go to law school. So far? Completely manageable.  It's not that I don't work hard, I do, but it's been fine.  Advantage is that I'm in a f/t day program and my husband makes enough to support us.  That said, we have really downsized and we live on an extremely tight budget.  I hate that part after being used to two incomes.  It depends on how badly you want it I suppose.

I'M ON FIRE, BABY, AND DON'T YOU FORGET IT!!  

I, for one, am a little insulted that I was not selected as a Julie's Lover candidate.  Insulted, I tell ya... insulted!

And no, Lane, little Stewie still flings poo.  They won't let him out of the asylum until he learns to control himself.



There was no magic to it, really. All you had to do to be selected as Julie's lover was to defend Julie against the obsessive troll Blondie.
