bush, not Bush - I both visited the school, talked to students there, talked to employees there (admissions, deans, etc), talked to several people I knew that went to DU (other schools than the law school though), talked to several lawyers in the field in Denver. The school does suck. It was built in the 50's, shows it, and is definately not ready for the technology age. However, the students were extremely nice and appeared to be very down to earth. The employees I talked to there were very nice and very knowledgable. Overall, it seemed the school to go to.
melissa2781 - The only areas you have to be worried about is the Miss. River until you hit about Denver
Actually it shouldn't be that bad. Kansas - extremely boring. However, if you have never driven through it it can be really pretty for a while (but very flat). The other thing is (depending on what type of things you are into) is getting information about what you can see on the drive. There are a lot of history destinations if that thing interests you (such as some stops for the Oregan trail, civil war, Indian sites). The other thing you might want to do (depending on whether you are driving as quick as you can or taking it slow) is stop here and there in the little towns - some of them have things going on such as rodeos, town fairs, etc. Especially in small towns, town fairs are a strange thing. Everyone is there and you see a very, very different side of life (even growing up in a "hick" town as small as Denver, some of the stuff that the small towns in the plains do is strange...)
