As someone who visited DU this past Friday, I thought I would let you know what the financial aid officer had to say. We were talking prices and he was being quite frank and told me, that there is no way he believes he can compete with in-state students who have been accepted to CU. To come out of a top 50 law school with only $21,000 dollars in debt, as opposed to the almost $100,000 Denver will cost- how do you turn that down? For me- CU didn't offer any classes in my area of interest, but the guy at DU insisted that the experiece you recieve after law school is so much more important than the classes you take during law school and so the VERY best idea is to limit your debt as much as possible.
However... and this is a huge however... there are rumors that CU is in risk of loosing its ABA accredidation. I have friends who have applied and who are not going for that very reason- they are too afraid of that risk and can't seem to get any information out of CU about what is going on.
Good luck with your decision
