While I agree that Highlands Ranch, Columbine, Lone Tree, Littleton, Aurora, etc are a bit suburby. . .I kind of think Denver is a subrby kinda city.  Well at least compared to Washington DC, Boston, Chicago, etc.  Anyway. . .I think kill the headlights has kids (??). . .which would make living south of Denver probably more reasonable/affordable.

I am actually from Boston, though I haven't lived there for about 4 years. I love suburbs. I would never want to live in the actual city again. And I agree with the comment that Denver is a suburby city. The actual downtown area is really small, but suburbs and cookie-cutter houses extend forever. But, I like suburbs, so that is ideal for me.

I love Highlands Ranch and Lone Tree because the cities are planned out so well. When you make an entire city in 20 years you have the opportunity to plan it out right. I love the twenty feet of grass on the side of the roads, with the curvy sidewalks through the grass, I love the bike trails. It is a great place to live. Also, they have many Qdobas and Chipotles, and I could live on those fabulous burritos! And you get a much larger house for less money than within the city limits of Denver. And I like newer houses, I grew up in New England where all the houses are a hundred years old, so the new stucco houses are gorgeous to me.

I'm from Colorado and go to CU.  I would think Colorado is an easy choice over Denver.  Boulder is without a doubt the nicest place to live in Colorado, while Denver is very low on the list of places I would live in Colorado.  Plus, CU is ranked a lot higher and they have a nice shiny new law school.

While  I wouldn't want to live in the actual city of Denver I would love living in South Denver, like Highlands Ranch, Columbine, Lone Tree. All those places are fantastic. It is also hard to comment on such personal statements, like the blanket statement that Boulder is the obvious best place to live. How many people live in Boulder, how many people live in Denver, I don't think it is as much of a forgone conclusion as you make it sound. In fact, the majority of people disagree.

Also, I don't think the school choice is a forgone conclusion either. If it was you wouldn't have people that get accepted to both going to Denver, which does happen.

To be honest, I am excited to hear back from the University of Colorado so then I can post my real stuff. I can fill out my LSN account with all the stuff that would be of interest, and that was on my application. And I could post a link to my blog, which I love having by the way.

Anyway, I really am anxious to hear back from Colorado. And my wife and I are extremely excited to come out for the weekend for ASW! A weekend without changing diapers!  :)

Too bad Colorado and Denver couldn't coordinate as a nice gesture to students. That would be convenient.

They actually do alot of that for current studnts, joint networking/info programs, some happy hours and such

That is nice they do it for current students. It would make sense to do it for people who are traveling from out of state also.

 
you should really just look at the previous thread that is the first post on this thread. There is one called MyWeb on there. All these questions were answered.

I called when my status changed also. They said a decision had been made and that they don't give decisions by email. I got an email the next day saying I had been admitted, then two days later I go the snail mail. They day after I got the email I called and asked about scholarships and the lady said that my name was in the pile that was being reviewed but a decision hadn't been made. The next day (with my general acceptance letter) I got a letter marked two days before offering me a 15K per year scholarship.

So the moral of the story is that although the University of Denver's office of admissions people are very nice they don't seem to have all their information streamlined. I got a different answer from each person I called.

I don't think they tell you over the phone because it sets a precedent.  Also, it would suck to be the receptionist having to tell someone they got rejected.  I think they are just playing safe.

Yeah, that was my guess too. I thought either the different offices don't talk much or it was the fact that they don't want to open the floodgates. I thought they were probably just giving a standard response to avoid opening pandora's acceptance box. All of the actual admissions people have been very helpful, the front desk has given me information that was just wrong, it seemed. Both have been quite nice though. I am yet to meet an unpleasant DU person, in person or on the phone.

So have we decided where this story came from? Was it just an email from someone. I am surprised people aren't asking for credentials a little more from the OP. I loved the comment that said, "I looked at my past posts and saw that people could easily get my identity. The original post is true then" That was great. It was an LSAT question just waiting to be had.

So where did that original email come from.

On another note, I got an email today which invited me to the admitted students day. I RSVPed and said I was going.

Is anyone else?

I think the street view could change everything. That is a part of the way my wife and I are looking at apartments. We just cruise down the street, looking at neighborhoods around the houses.

So, how much? Unfortunately the schools I want to attend are not visible. On school has the next street over covered but the other school is too far off the beaten path.

But drop the street view man in San Diego, it is gorgeous there.
