Longmont is so far, but the traffic is probably not nearly as bad as if you commute to Boulder from the south. I just can't imagine taking the bus for 1hr+ each way or spending that type of gas money. Broomfield is okay. I have some friends who live a little outside of Broomfield (closer to Lafayette) and it doesn't seem bad at all. Their apartment is way way nicer than my apartment in north Boulder and I also pay more. Because they live outside of Broomfield proper, they don't have to take 36 to get to Boulder. I don't know if I'd want to live any place you'd have to take 36 to commute though. The traffic is awful and it only gets worse when it snows. This winter wasn't bad, but some of my friends had 2+ hour commutes on snowy days. A lot of students who live outside of Boulder commit themselves to arriving first thing in the morning and not leaving until the early evening in order to avoid the ridiculous traffic. This is not inconvenient at all in times like now where everyone is studying 12 hours a day for finals anyways, but it has to be annoying early in the semester when there isn't much to do.
I've Google mapped the directions for all of the Places to the law school and I get the following results
Superior 16 Minutes
Louisville 18 minutes
Broomfield 18 Minutes
Longmont 22 minutes
Lafayette 23 minutes
From Pufer's comments it seems traffic isn't so bad but I can understand the occasional delay and the rare stop and go as is the case in any decent size urban area. These commute times seem pretty reasonable though. Where does the hour + time come from?
Also, I too would be interested in the remaining availability as the Kensington if you wouldn't mind.
