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.

The firday class thing was new last year, they never had 1st year frid classes before that. I know only one section had friday class last year, I think that was legal writing. Do you know what section your in? Have you checked my web detail schedual of classes to see if it says what classes you have?

It doesn't have anything on there, no section number or anything. I guess I just have to wait it out.

Thanks for the reply.

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.

Nobody knows?

Just a curiosity question. I am eager to get my schedule to see how early I start and if Fridays are going to be class days. Does anyone know when the schedule comes out? I heard it is at the end of July.

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.

What percent of full-time students have classes on Friday?

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?

The new website at DU is a significant upgrade. I was impressed. I am getting ready to plunk down my second tuition deposit.
