Where should I go next fall? / Re: U. Colorado or U. Denver? Help!!

So it seems like Dever would be around 47,000 dollars total in tuition for me right now. Colorado, assuming I didn't get a scholarship (which is probably likely), would be 66,000 dollars.

So, do you guys think the higher ranking is worth 20,000 dollars of additional debt? I am undecided.

And I am specifically speaking about CU v. DU. Clearly Harvard compared to DU would be worthwhile. But DU and CU seem quite comparable in the area, which is where I plan on practicing.

Keep in mind that not all scholarship offers are locks for three years. Neither is in-state tuition.

I am aware. Denver's is contingent upon a 3.0 cumulative. In-state tuition at Colorado does seem like a lock for the second and third year.

But thanks for answering the question!

I think they disabled the housing app access for everyone because people were finding out about admissions before they told them.

Rest easy...at least for a day or two!

Just for the record, and to be helpful to those still waiting on decisions, I now cannot access the housing app. I called and asked if there was significance to my being able to access it. I made that call before I had heard. Maybe that made it so people couldn't see it because the MyWeb things started a mini-riot.

<------- from nebraska



i'll pay the higher tuition thanks  ;)

Ha, I talked to a Nebraskan yesterday. I think CU would be a sweet school.

I got mail yesterday with a 15,000 scholarship a year. I am jealous of the 20,000 a year scholarship. Assuming I get accepted to Colorado I have no idea which one I would choose right now.

First off, that whole spat about thanking me was hilarious. I appreciated the congrats though. But it didn't even cross my mind that she didn't thank me (she did on LSN). I love the community rules. And also, I think that TLS is a fine site. I think it caters more to the top 14 schools, which I am not applying to, and it doesn't have as many people applying to Colorado or Denver, where I am applying. So I decided to come over here. The comments about bringing the rude stuff over there were humorous.

drleather, the scholarship info came in the package with the acceptance letter. It was in a big envelope with pictures all over it. Also, Karen Higganbotham wrote a little note on the bottom of my acceptance saying congrats and she said she thinks I will do well there. Did anyone else have this written? I am just wondering.

oh! man..
what's going on?

"complete/ready to review " section is gone..it is completely blank..yet,
i can not get acess to housing and registration information. it looks like
they made decision on my file...
am i in or out??
any thought?

I think you should be able to access the housing app if you are in.

On another note, I got a $15,000 a year scholarship in the mail yesterday. I was very excited, especially because my first couple of LSATs were 145, 150,151. At that point I was hoping to just get in. Then I got a 159,162 on the real thing and now I have a half tuition scholarship! Things turned out well. I was hoping for $20,000 a year, but beggars can't be choosers. If I get into Colorado though, and they have a built in 12,000 dollar a year scholarship for second and third year with the in-state aspect, that will be a hard choice.

I will be attending Admitted Student Day. It is the 28th of March.

Also, I called yesterday and the adcomm I talked to said that they only give full scholarships to people who are interested in public interest. She said that she think the highest offer they are giving people right now is 20,000 a year. What have you guys gotten there?

Also, I heard that CU signed the top running back prospect in the nation. Is that swaying anyone :) ?

I got in today also! It looks like there is significance to the MyWeb business and the housing application. I might actually have to make the decision between Colorado and Denver! That would be great!

Yeah, I am hoping for some money also.
