Incoming 1Ls / Re: My take on the first year of law school

How would you define the 'it' that you mention? To be honest with you, your post makes alot of sense to me and I am wondering if my own inate talents and abilities fall within the realm of the 'it' you describe. Of course, the only way for me to find out will be to attend law school, but you seem to have a pretty good grasp on 'it' and I also have a pretty good understanding of what I am and am not good at.

Question: If I am attending a part time law school, am I permitted (ABA regs etc.) to take classes at another school at the same time? EG: If I am interested in taking a theology class through a seminary school at the same time, is this ok? Another example would be an online MBA program where you can get the MBA in 1-year online. Assuming one has the time, is this legit?

Yes, it is looking like my top choice and I am excited to come out to Denver. I do have a question for you about commute times. How reasonable would it be to live NW of the school, towards Broomfield or even north of there? We would likely live south, but in the event I get a job elsewhere I was just wondering if it would be doable.

I applied to the PT program with approx a 156/3.0 and great soft factors. Honestly, I should get in as I have also gotten in to a few other similar ranked schools PT programs. O ya, I just checked the ststus check and I am able to open up the housing application! A while ago someone posted that if you can open that, you are admitted, but then they took that feature down. Well, I can open it so hopefully thatis good news.

Anyone know if there is a way to tell if you have been admitted by looking at the DU status checker? It no longer says pending so I know a decision has been made. Have read some things about trying to pull up the housing application, but heard they took that down now?

Thanks! I agree - the admissions staff has been great, and when I call never appear to be put off!

Request for a current DU student: If you know anyone in admissions, can you please ask them if they plan to send out another batch of admittances anytime soon now that the first deposit deadline has passed? 7 months and still waiting for a decision, a letter, an email - something from DU!I did verify that I am complete and at committee.

Lesbian, bi-sexual or transgendered? Decide to be right now and it might help you, and you might consider coming up with a hardship story for your essays as schools seem to love these. Perhaps your grades are lower due to a death in the family, or the fact that you graduated by age 20 - a feat most of us could never pull off. Admissions offices welcome sob stories - as if they have anything to do with your ability to do well at their school. Nonetheless, I suggest you find a way to show them that you are as different from the standard straight, white American as possible, and make them feel as sorry as possible for your life experiences you have overcome. Otherwise, retake the LSAT and get a 162+ and I bet Iowa will let you in. I know, if you are Han Chinese, take a stand against China's violence in Tibet and let that be known in your essay. Seriously. Chinese applicant taking stand against China and pro Tibet = giddy law school deans who likely love Tibet and all that it represents = admitted for being unique applicant.

Matthies - Does DU typically send out another 'round' of acceptances once the seat deposit deadline passes? I haven't been rejected or waitlisted yet, so I think I have a decent chance based on my numbers.

Ladivine - Are you going to put down multiple deposits, and is that permitted?
