Yes that was a bit confusing to me as well. Let's reiterate: WashU= Washington University (St Louis) UWash=University of Washington (Seattle).

I saw it mentioned before, but these pictures of Stetson need some viewing:

It doesn't hurt that it's in the nation's official sunniest city, either.

The buildings seem nice (modern, but nice) in every photo I've seen. And the campus backs up right onto a state park.

You would love the U-Mich Graduate Library.

The undergraduate library is a giant clusterfuck.

I've heard about the things that go on in the "nooks and crannies" of the grad library. Apparently there are more law students in there than in the law library around exams.

The law is taking him!!

For what it's worth, I think Michigan does look pretty awesome. Not that I'd ever get in...

I also second Colorado, UWash (and WashU, too), and L&C. Colorado's buildings look amazing, especially the new Wolf one, and L&C is in a giant forest. You can't get much better. When I visited W&L, both inside and out of the law building were awesome. Not the biggest library, but it was still cozy, and outside the hills were great. It was hard to drive through them and keep my eyes on the road.

I do second the Big 10 schools' cities, though. Bloomington, Iowa City, Madison, and Minneapolis all seem like awesome places to live, even if the drive through Iowa is less than impressive. (And believe me, it is.)

Wow. I had no idea CU-Boulder was so gorgeous. I mean, it's Boulder, so ... yeah. But hell, that building is way nice. And the scenery is unbelievable.

I know, man. As if being that close to the mountains/skiing wasn't enough incentive; now they have amazing buildings, too. Check out the inside:

I visited Boulder and I wasn't too impressed with the inside of the law building. Nice and new but nothing too amazing. Denver on the other hand..... 3 story law library encased in glass with huge entryway/study area. So beautiful.

I couldn't find a picture that does it justice... but these aren't bad.

Nice shots, Cal. I'll admit, I didn't really think Denver had as impressive of faculties as Boulder. I think Boulder wins on other factors, but seeing as how this thread is not a battle of the CO schools, I think they both deserve a spot here. And Denver is only a few hours from the snowy mountains, too. Less ritzy, perhaps? I've not been, though I did drive through it, but I know Boulder is about as expensive as Aspen.

This area of Denver is generally considered expensive. Just down the road is Cherry Creek, the glamor area of Denver (aside from downtown). Denver is the same distance from skiing as Boulder. The University of Denver is considered a "rich kid" school with very nice facilities and a very good academic reputation in Denver. Not so sure about outside of the Rocky Mountain region however. Boulder might be better for that. Thoughts?

I like that rouge little table at Boulder. That's awesome.

Is inside the walls at Boulder as nice as it is on the outside? Because outside is pretty nice.

I've heard/read that Boulder is king for placement in the entire rocky mountain area, not just Colorado. It may just be what has been said, but it seems like it has great placement, especially in Environmental Law areas. Not completely convinved I want to do Env. Law, but I've certainly thought about it. I don't really care about living in a "rich kid" area, just somewhere nice, modest, and, especially, safe. I can'y vouch for either school in those respects, as I've never been to either, but I imag=ine Boulder surely does well. Denver is a much bigger city, so I'm thinking they'd have slightly more things to take care of, but, again, I've never been, so I could be completely wrong.

Boulder is probably safer. Although, Denver is in the suburbs so it isn't dangerous at all. Boulder is its own little world though, very, very, very liberal. Still a great place though.

Ha, certainly. Not the worst thing in the world, but something to note, for sure.
