Denver / Re: Any Advice about possibly Choosing DU??
« on: March 12, 2013, 02:47:27 PM »
Thank you both for the advice! I guess I forgot to mention that I am not from Colorado, or Virginia. I am from Western New York, about 1 1/2 Hours from Buffalo, and I know that I do NOT want to go to law school in this area. I am visiting Denver, and have visited Virginia, and as far as my research has shown me, Denver is a great city to live (especially for a 22 yr old Single person). I really appreciated your insight LivingLegend, I guess one of my main questions was whether or not taking quality of life into such a serious consideration was a "No No" for choosing Law school. Some people I talk to are sort of only interested in higher ranking.

Sorry about the typo too, the "not" should be a "now."

Denver / Any Advice about possibly Choosing DU??
« on: March 11, 2013, 08:01:24 PM »
Hello all,
I am about to finish up my undergrad degree, and am planning on entering law school next fall. I applied to a lot of schools because I was paranoid about getting a good deal, and am not faced with the choice of deciding where to go. I have been accepted at DU and have gotten a full-tuition scholarship. However, I have also been accepted at some higher ranked schools, like William and Mary and Washington and Lee who have not given me quite as much money, but still a good amount (probably around a $10,000/year difference). I know the career prospects at W&M and W&L are better than DU, but frankly I am much more attracted to living in Denver. At this point I am thinking about sacrificing the higher ranking to come out to Denver, but I am still not sure. Is there anyone with any opinions about what I should do? Would it be a poor decision to sacrifice the career prospects for the Quality of Life?? Thanks a lot for all of your help!
