Where should I go next fall? / Re: EVERYTHING on DENVER STURM LAW

Hey Matthies,

So what is your schedule like taking a class and working during the summer?  I think I am going to try and take summer classes and transfer the to the full-time program for 2L.  I would like to graduate in 3 years if possible, and the people I spoke with in admissions said it was possible. 

If you do not mind me asking, what kind of internship do you have this summer?

I have a few questions:

1.  Does anyone have any experience with the summer prep course for entering 1Ls?
    (ie. is it worth the money/time?)

2.  I was told that law students get a free light rail pass, when does the school distribute these?

I am planning to secure an apartment next week while visiting, and I hope to be moved in by mid-July.  If possible I would like to get the light rail pass before classes start.

Wait List / Re: IOWA

You probably do have the most recent info, my info was current as of about 1 week ago.  Maybe I should have stayed on the waitlist...jk I will be happy at Denver. 

Are you in state?  I ask because I was told that in state people are given some preference on the waitlist.

The name of the game now is to be as proactive as possible, and get noticed by the adcomm. 

Good luck to you, and I honestly hope you get in to Iowa!!!

Keep in mind that Collins Byrd said that there was a 30-50% chance of even going to the waitlist .  So your 2.22% chance is dependent on the 30-50% chance that the waitlist is even used.  I would not leave other opportunities for that chance though, sounds like a bad bet to me!

here is what I know about the Iowa waitlist, direct from Collins Byrd:

-There are currently about 350 people on the waitlist

-In the next 2-3 weeks they will be cutting it to 225

-The chances of needing the waitlist are about 30-50%

-If they use the waitlist Collins Byrd predicts it will only be for 4-5 people

-They will have a better idea about the waitlist in a few days, since the 2nd seat deposit was June 1

I am on the waitlist, but I think the odds are too far against me.  Good Luck to those riding it out!! I think you will need it!

My cycle is over as well.  I am going to Denver. I will withdraw all my other apps tomorrow.

It feels good to have this figured out, now I just need to find a place to live.  Good luck to all of you still making decisions!

Hey DU folks!  I just got back from Colorado where I was able to spend 2 days in Denver checking out the school and the city.  I loved the school, and I am very excited to start this fall!  My SO and I are looking at some apartments south of the city where I could ride the light rail to class.  All of the advice you all have given has been great, and it helped a lot!  See you this fall!!!

If the school looses accreditation while attending, even if you still get an accreditated degree, would you not be concerned about the stigma of having graduated from a school that was clearly on the decline according to the ABA?  I would say to stick with the already accreditated school, but that is just my opinion.  Good luck which ever you choose
