From what I have seen of Boulder, it seems like a great place to live. Sofar, I really like being in Denver (I actually live south of Denver)
It just seems like there is so much more going on in Denver.
I like how Matthies worded it though, Boulder would be a nice place to retire.
And Boulder is a popular place for retirees. It's a quaint little town with pretty mountain views and only 30 mins from a Denver. Besides, it's really cute.
I'm from Colorado and go to CU. I would think Colorado is an easy choice over Denver. Boulder is without a doubt the nicest place to live in Colorado, while Denver is very low on the list of places I would live in Colorado. Plus, CU is ranked a lot higher and they have a nice shiny new law school.
Are you at the law school or UG at CU? Becuase there is a CU thread with people wanting info on the law school you might want to check out if you can answer some of thier questions, not many CU law students on here!
But why all the city of Denver hate? I admit Boulder is very pretty, and I would not mind retiring there someday, but there are not many lawyer jobs in Boulder. Odds are good if you want to be a lawyer in CO you’re going to end up in Denver, Colorado Springs, Fort Collins, or Pueblo before Boulder. And of those choices, hands down I would take living in Denver myself.
Yea, why the hate? I know a few current CU law students & they are all really nice so I won't judge based on your response.
I would say that the two schools have a good relationship (very friendly competition but nobody thinking they are better than the other because they go to CU or DU). In fact, some of the organizations I'm a part of at DU regularly organizes events with CU. Both schools are also invited to the same networking events, participate in intra school competitions, etc. I've been to the CU law building but I prefer DU's. . .ours seems more open (which, by the way is new & shiney). . .but, that's just me.
But as I've said before, the ultimate decision should be yours. . .not what I, Matthies, Tienfenbr, US NEWS, or any one on this board says. And again, I emphasize, VISIT. Afterall, you are going to spend 3 years at the school.
I hope the weather during ASW is nice for you. . .right now I'm weariting flip flops one day and Ugg boots the next.
