Just out of curiosity, why don't we use the DU page to post? It seems like that would be the best place.



Agreed.

There is the thread I started. It is under DU. Let's use this one, everyone posting on this thread is already admitted or already attending.

kill the headlights-- I believe I have the same schedule. Are you in section 1?


...does anybody know the password for faculty evaluations page? I emailed a while ago and didn't receive a response..

Yeah, I am in 1A. It looks like we have the same section.

Just out of curiosity, why don't we use the DU page to post? It seems like that would be the best place. It doesn't seem like that page gets a lot of traffic.

Thanks for the bus info. For some reason I thought that I saw that the pass we get makes it so you can only ride from A-B, B-A; B-C, C-B. I must have been misreading something. The pass will make it nice and far less pricey.

Book options on campus: DU Bookstore in Driscoll (building in front of the law school) or the SBA bookstore
Off campus: amazon, half, etc

1st semester 1L year, I got all my books at the bookstore.  After realizing I didn't need brand new books, I never went back (other than for a car decal & sweatshirt).

The book list is usually on the advanced assignment page (under registrar, course info).  OR. . .you can go to the du bookstore website and check to see if the booklist is updated (you have to know your course # & prof name).

You're ganna buy your book now?  WHY?  Understandably (is that even a word?) you are excited but you still have plenty of time to purchase books before classes.  You have 3 weeks or so til orientation?  TAKE ADVANTAGE!!  Go buy/borrow/steal some FUN/NON Law books and read away because you won't have time once classes start.

**This message brought to you by a 3L who spent 3 hours and $60 at B&N buying fun/non law books today. ;D

Yeah, not the reason I was asking. I didn't want to get a jump start on the reading, I want to get the online so I can save money. I wanted to find the best deal and still get them in time to have them on the first day of class.

Don't worry, I am doing nothing right now. Well, I am moving to Denver on the first, so I am doing a lot of stuff to get ready to move my family there, but other than that I am have no scholastic pursuits at the moment.

By the way, I read on DU's website that the light rail pass is only good at certain stops in Denver. My wife and I are moving to Sante Fe/Mineral and I was wondering if I will be able to take the light rail for free from that far away?

I received my schedule also, well it isn't actually a schedule, it is just a list of classes and who is teaching them. I wish it had time but it does not. Here is the list:

Torts- no teacher
Civil Procedure- Katharine DuVivier
Criminal Law- Sam Kamin
Lawyering Process I- Tanya Brown

What do you think? Is there a place where I can see what times these classes are at? I have clicked on every schedule link but to no avail.

KK is really nice but so boring.  As if civ pro wasn't bad enough, her soft spoken voice and lectures will put you right to sleep.  Her final is a typing test. . .whoever types the fastest wins.  She has a midterm (which virtually doesn't count so it's a nice practice test).  Again, I suggest checking out the faculty evals. . .under the registrar's page.

For the schedule of classes, try this:

Try this:

Log on to WebCentral

Then click on the “myWeb” tab

Then Banner Self Service folder

Then Student and Finical Aid folder

Then Registration Folder

Then Student Detail Schedule

Then choose “Autumn Semester 2008”

Click submit

You should see each class and under “scheduled meeting times” the days/time/classrooms for your classes. If its not here, its not posted yet.

I had Kamin for Crim Law, he's good, but has some ideoscracies, like don't ever walk in front of him if your late and he has started class, he will lose it. I thought he was going to have aheart attck when a girl in our class did that.


Thanks for the comments and instructions. They worked. I have class until 4 :( and I also have class on Friday till 4. That is far from ideal, but it shouldn't be too bad.

Where do you guys get your school books from? Where can I see what the required texts are for the classes I have?

Law School Admissions / Re: Do I have any shot at DU with a 3.3/156
« on: July 15, 2008, 01:44:49 PM »
Also, for what it is worth, I got denied at CU with the 162/3.43 stats. So it could have been because I applied very late there or because I was out of state, but I got denied. According to websites and similar places it seemed I had about a 50/50 chance of getting in. Maybe they just didn't like what I had to offer, but it was worth an application. I would have chosen my 70,000 at Denver before CU anyway.

Hope that helps you gauge your chances a little better.

I would apply and try it out either way though.

Yeah, the DU/CU combination gave it away. Also, I think with schools like Duke they are well known enough where people just say the name--Duke. And the abbreviation is as long as the name.

Your shots are mediocre. I would check out law school numbers. They give a nice snapshot of some applicant's numbers and their successes and failures. It is worth a shot however. Your numbers aren't horrible for Denver. I had a 3.43/162 and I got in and I don't have to pay tuition first year. So my LSAT is better but the GPA is marginally better. I would, however, retake the LSAT. I figure studying hard for the LSAT made me 70,000$ because I received a 20,000 per year scholarship and a 10,000 dollar grant because I was so poor from studying for the LSAT. So I am very glad I studied like crazy for the LSAT.

My advice: retake the LSAT and apply even if you don't. But look into another round at the LSAT. It would be worthwhile.

I checked with the office of financial aid and they said that it is a grant that I do not have to pay back! Sweet! I am only going to be paying a couple grand for tuition. Also, the Celts won today, so I am ecstatic.  Thanks for the response.

I saw this on my financial aid page:

DU Need-Based FFEL Grant LW 10,000$

What is that? I am assuming that it is a grant, but I was not notified about it. Does anyone know anything about these grants?
