I am not sure what her deal is. 

So I should avoid Aurora when looking for housing?

hey I thought you would all find this funny.  There is a girl on LSN that loves to bash Denver.  As of now she is trying her third round at law school, currently on the waitlist for Cooley.  When I asked her what her problem with Denver was here was her response:

DenverTuesday May 15th 2007 9:37pm
What is that based on? Well...of course the firms have DU graduates in Denver....that's cause their grads can't get BIG TIME REAL jobs....Colorado is not what you'd call a wonderful legal market...and in fact, Colorado actually has an EXCESS of attorneys...

Believe me, I have plenty of reasons for my opinions of the school. I had lawyers who came out of that school. More than one of them, having lived in Colorado for 8 years. The types of attorneys that come out of that school are just, well...I won't even say on open postings. But I have my reasons and everyone is entitled to an opinion. As far as I'm concerned, you are much better off going to Michigan State. And if you're not going to go there, then would you please kindly withdraw your application so those people waiting on decisions can have a chance? I don't see why you would pass up MSU for DU. But I guess you have different standards and you didn't live in Colorado, so you wouldn't even know. DU is in a TERRIBLE neighborhood, in case you didn't bother visiting.

I mean, come on. You even said that MSU would be a great school. So why would you choose DU instead? Just because of higher rankings? Because if that's your only reason, then you need to learn some more about that school. Their bar passage rate is not even good for Colorado's bar.

Good luck to you. But having lived in Colorado and knowing a lot about the school and what kind of attorneys come out of it (loser idiots, in other words), you are much better off at MSU. If you're not going to MSU, then please withdraw your acceptance, so other people have a chance. That is only fair.

i hope its ottawa vs. anaheim.. so it will be a good series... ottawa will walk all over detroit.. they are too old and too slow!!!

I think what you meant to say was that detroit has much more experience!!  I cannot believe some of the guys are still playing at 40+  Chelios, Hasek...etc.

btw.. i FINALLy changed my profile.. figured this is much more appropriate! i had enough of the 'likesithard' comments....

anyone here hockey fans?? the game last nite was incredibleee

Finals:  Wings v. Senators

The cup goes to hockeytown

...offers notes to anyone, even the guy/girl that missed class because of bar review.

Is this really the norm?  I don't mean to sound like a jerk but if someone missed class because they were drunk in UG that is one thing, but in law school I would find it hard to take that person seriously.  I would willingly give notes to anyone who had a decent reason for missing a class, but I think missing class in law school for being hungover is extremeley irresponsible. 

Anyone want to give a reason why peers should bail out a fellow student for their irresponsibility?

By the way I am just a OL, so what do I know

Well, because you would hope they would return the favor for you.

I mean, if it's someone who never ever goes, then don't share, fine.  But if the person who sits next to you has one or two rough mornings and they miss...you really wouldn't share?

You'll probably need it at some point, too.

I understand what you are saying, I have just always been the kid in undergrad that even after a night of partying has been prepared for class, and thus been asked a lot for notes from people who missed or were incoherent in class.  I think I will have a tough time getting myself through LS, let along babying someone else through.  

I get it though...karma...help someone else out, and then in the future they may help you when you need it.  I just know how some people are and once you give them and inch they take a mile. I am not saying that I will never share my notes, but I guess I just don't understand this "share your notes with anyone who asks for them" mentality.

Matthies,
Thanks for the great info, it is very helpful.  I will probably see you this fall!



Do students have access to the ice hockey rink for skating/playing?

Sweet another hockey player!  Where did you play?  I played basically my whole life through high school.  I checked out the rec website and it looks like they have pick-up hockey, so if I have time I will probably be doing that every once and a while.

hey everyone, just wanted to tell you all that today I got accepted off the waitlist at Denver!!!  I am soooo excited, looks like I will be seeing some of you next fall!  I will be starting in the evening division.

Congrats! I am in the evening division if you have any Q's, though they changed it somewhat from when I started.

Thanks!  I actually do have a few questions. 

1.  Are most of the people in the evening division non-trad, or is it a mix of people?



2.  Is it possible to transfer to the day division after the first year? 



3.  Is it more difficult to get summer work from the evening division? 


4.  I read your posts regarding housing and was wondering if there are any areas to avoid for reasons such as safety, driving time, or undergrad invasion. 


I am visiting with my SO on the 24th, and we plan to look for housing and just check out the city.  We will be staying up in Estes Park.  Other than the housing info on the website, is there any other resource for apartments?  Or does the usual apartments.com, rent.com, and forrent.com cover it pretty well?


Thanks in advance for helping me out!

Wow, that is so exciting. How long had you been on the waitlist??? Did they call you? Congrats!!!

It is very exciting!  I was on the waitlist for about 1 month.  Yes they called me, and it was one of those moments you wish you could bottle so that you could experience it again!

Thanks for all the nice comments.  It seems like there is a good group headed to denver, and a good group already there!
