So are the bar passages rates calculated on both adminstrations or first time takers or what?
For those of you that are attending either of these schools what is the worst thing/biggest disappointment that you have with the school?
While were at it what is the best thing? (I dont really care about cheerleading thought so feel free to skip this part.)
Bar passage: As far as I know, our latest was at 80% or something for first time takers. Go to the CO state supreme court for more info on that. And yes, the administration is doing a lot to raise the bar passage. . .some kind of over the top(see #4 & 5).
1.) 2 professors who teach bar prep classes for 3Ls
2.) A supplementary weekend bar prep program
3.) Encouraging profs to give closed book, timed exams
4.) Grade distribution not posted
5.) Curving most classes
Worse/biggest disappointment = it's expensive & admin comes up with silly ideas (see #4 & 5 above)
Best = there's always something going on. law firm networking events, lunch time talks, awesome speakers, (just this year we've had sandra day o'connor, mitt romney, co supreme court justices, etc. . .oh & did i mention that barack obama & bill clinton are coming to du tomorrow?)
Any word on the admin problems that have been mentioned previously. It seems there is a strong focus on enviornmental law related programs, if this is not an interest, would you be at a disadvantage at DU?
DU's envorinmental law program is really strong & pretty popular. There is also a lot of focus on international law & corporate law. . .and I would say that the three areas of law have equal amounts of interests.
