Congrats! I'm a 3L there (in the middle of exams ATM though) so if you have any questions let me know.

How do you like Denver? A big part of my decision to apply was hearing such great things about the city and the surrounding area. Do you have a job lined up? What are the job prospects like? I'd like to know as much about the school as possible...any information/advice you can give would be much appreciated!

I love Denver! It is just the right size town for me, not too big not too small. There is so much outdoor stuff to do with an hour drive or less around here you could never get board.  I love the school, I am very happy here, and while I had the chance to transfer to CU, I decided to stay at DU. I only whish it was cheaper, but I would likely say that at any school. I currently have a job clerking, and I have several offers on the table for jobs after school, but I am PT so I still have 3 semesters left before graduation.

We are right in the middle of exam week (through the 14th) so I do not have time to say much more, but let me know if you have any more Qs. There is also a Denver thread somewhere, and there are other DU students who post here, but they are likely studying!


If you don't mind my asking, what sorts of offers to you have for after graduating. Are they jobs in Denver? Any idea on the median salaries offered by Denver firms? Do you feel like your degree can get you out of CO if you wanted to?

Notified by email today (December 3).
I was wondering when you went applied and how long it took you to go complete

Sent my application through LSAC on October 2. Went complete on November 15.

Where should I go next fall? / complete at UNC?

Anyone complete at UNC yet? I am in-state and they say they are still determining my residency status...any residents complete yet?

I agree with the above poster, although I am kind of surprised that he doesn't like Chapel Hill.  I think it's a very cool place, and I think most law students that visit/spend a weekend would agree that it's (one of) the coolest college town(s) in the US.


BTW:
Alabama - 3.56 / 162  |  25% - 3.29 / 159  |  75% - 3.83 / 165
UGA -     3.62 / 163  |  25% - 3.39 / 156  |  75% - 3.85 / 164

(I believe these are a year old)

From what I've read, UNC is the best out of all of these. UNC also has one of the most annoying applications I've encountered. They require at least two separate application essays, both of which have to be at least 3 pages long.

Is this true? The way I read the application, you have to choose at least 2 topics which combined have to be 3-5 pages? Maybe I am misinterpreting.

midway through my arguments (which i hope was the experimental), i noticed it was exactly the same as one i had done before...

threw me off, but then i just put down my pen and chilled for 15 minutes haha

I had that as well...as soon as I started reading it (the passage about Stilgoe...railroads...etc) I knew I was dealing with the experimental.

I have a 159 LSAT and a 3.4 GPA, have residence in NC, and 2 years work experience at a large corporation. Do I have a decent shot at getting into UNC?
