anyone taking the bait on the summer preview class?

I've heard mixed reviews about this.  My year, it was free. . .I don't know why they started charging people.  I say it is more a psychologicial help than anything else (calms the nerves about law school, etc).

I finally found an apartment for next year and i'm beyond excited... Though it is nerve-wracking, as I have not seen the place in-person.

The complex is called The Covington at Cherry Creek and is only about three miles south of DU. For a 3rd floor, 1065sq.ft, 2bed/2bath place rent is around 880. Utilities aren't included, though :( I was seeking out a place with a good pet policy and a washer/dryer in unit, and The Covington has both. My sig. other is a pharmacist in the Denver area, and I will living/splitting rent with him, and am very thankful for that opportunity-- It's letting me cut back on my loan amount by about $400-500 each year, and every little bit helps.

Have any of you heard of this apartment complex before? I'm praying that I didn't just put a deposit on a total dump, but based on online reviews/photos it seems nice enough. Only three more months!!!  ;D

I'm stoked that it's biking distance from DU (and walking distance if I have extra time on my hands)

A couple of my friends lived & some still live in the Covington.  It is a pretty decent apt complex.  I'm not sure if it's walking distance though. . .at least I couldn't walk that far.  But then again, maybe I'm just too lazy or out of shape.   :P

Even during rush hour, traffic in Denver isn't really that bad.  Unless you've lived in a rural area with 1 stop light for the most of your life, you'll find that Denver commute is really doable.  I have classmates who commute from Colo Springs!  Would I do it? No.  But it's certainly doable.  From Broomfield I would look at about 30-45mins depending on the time of day and how fast you drive.   ;)

Hope good news is on your way!  Let us know.

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.

Hang in there, not hear anything is always better than hearing no. I did not get my accpatnce until April I think.

I agree. . .it probably means you  are still being considered.  I didn't hear back from DU til May.  If you are really that curious, call them. . .everyone in admissions is nice.

Yes, go to the link.  :)  Lots of good discussion & probably a lot of answers to what you're looking for.  Good luck!

I don't mean to downplay your learning disability & I really hope you can reapply but isn't time the biggest problem for most people on the LSAT? 

Again, I really hope you find the answers to your questions and good luck! :)

Skinsfan123: PM me w/your questions.
We are in EXTREMELY similar situations (international law, relocating after graduation, etc). . .minus the dual degree (which I considered for a while but decided against).  I've been talking to A LOT of alums, career services, current 3Ls who are moving after graduation, etc with many of the same questions you have.

Denver isn't exactly the international law capital of the country.  Many attorneys here will attest to that.  That being said, Denver has the most federal government agencies after Washington, DC.

On the location issue, I agree 100% w/Matties (as if this is new).  Outside of truly national schools, go to schools in the city, state, region you want to practice.  It is easier to network, find jobs, and get your foot in the legal community.  Also, alumni and school ties has A LOT to do with who gets hired from what school.
