If i could pack up and run out the door right now I totally would..... but i work for family and I still have to face them at holidays ...... so i guess that wouldnt go over too well.
I plan on working late nights until the very end of July... and i plan on packing up my car and making my way from New Jersey to Colorado on July 30th.  That way I'll have money to hopefully eat at least once a day for the next three years. 

I wish Donald Trump would adopt me and pay for my law school :*(

i dont see how ppl can afford to go straight into law school.  my savings from one year of working is paying for my relocation and furntiture and all that stuff that isn't included in the estimated cost of attendance.

Marista99 & Pub. Interest gal ~

that was a typo... im driving 27 hours :)  i'm coming from New Jersey.... and i was able to manipulate one of my friends into thinking that this is going to be an awesome road trip and she's agreed to come along :-D   While flying out there... all we passed was dead field after dead field after dead field.  So its sure to be a very scenic and excited drive  :-\  But living in Denver and going to DU is worth it.  Im most definetly going.... the deposit is in the mail as of this morning....   ill suggest the apartment bldg im moving into, and maybe we can have an emergency back up drive to school if something happens to one of our cars, if not at least have someone in the same complex who understands what you're going through.

When i walked through the law school building all i kept saying was "wow".  it was absolutely amazing.... you can be on the toilet and on the internet.  It was so nice and new and beautiful and technologically advanced.  They have trial training rooms that look just like a court room, with the jury box, judges chair, witness stand.... the whole nine yards.  there were crevices everywhere with little study rooms, and some of them overlooked the Rockies.  The library seemed decent... it was three stories high in the same building... but i don't really know how the content of the library is.   Their moot court was beautiful, and almost all of the classrooms are shaped in a half circle, so everyone can see and face each other pretty much.  they have a parking garage right below the building, and the campus as a whole was well kept and pretty.  Coming from a small undergrad school... i was very impressed by the size of the school and the grounds, and how its like a mini city.  everyone was so friendly, everyone smiled and said hello. 

I talked to alot of ppl in denver about the law school, and everyone is aware that CU might lose their accredidation and that is totally affecting their perception of their law program.  Everyone is also aware of the awesome new law bldg DU has, and they are looking more and more favorably towards DU.

as far as denver.... absolutely gorgeous.  Ive never been to Colorado before, but i really do look forward to moving there this august.  I did alot of apartment shopping and furniture shopping, and i found the perfect apartment with a view of the mountains and a fire place.  Im a little nervous about not living on campus, only because i wont know anyone and the best way to meet people is in the community you live in... but I think im a little beyond the whole living on campus thing.  the other graduates in the other graduate programs seem to take school less seriously and partying more seriously, and they seem to be the ones who take up the bulk of the on campus graduate housing.  if you go to DU for a tour, which i highly recomend, try to make an appt to see their grad housing. You'll see their apartments are a little outdated and they arnt putting much effort into their upkeep since they are planning on knocking the bldgs down in a few years anyway.

but denver was so beautiful, and so clean, and i felt so safe and comfortable there.  I can't wait to move their......... even though its going to be a 37 hour drive :-D.  Im up for the road trip.
