QFT. Look for that that green cross
around Boulder or Denver and you'll see that the above is only a minor exaggeration... if that. I'm not a smoker, and I had no idea that 4/20 is a very special event
(more so than it is more generally) in Boulder. On the plus side, you'll get to see hemp in all its many and varied forms

Anywhere else I should really consider neighborhood-wise? I know it's come up in this thread before. Guess I'll dig later if no one wants to remind me.
I can attest to the fact that the area immediately east of the law school (30th Street area) is a pretty nice place to live. The area is full of partying undergrads, to be sure, but it still manages to be fairly calm. The roads connecting to the school all have bike lanes, and the campus is littered with bike paths, if that is your thing. Further, there is quick and immediate access to the bus system which is always a good thing. Unfortunately, I don't get out much, so I can't give much advice about living in Boulder. However, this
(skip to the 'Life in Boulder' part about 2/5 of the way in) might be helpful in getting an idea of potential livings areas.
If it isn't too weird or creepy, please feel free to send me a PM or whatnot about an area or even a particular building in which you're interested. I know what a pain it can be to find apartments from a distance, and I'd be happy to either check out the potential domicile or see if I can find anyone who has an impression of it. Maybe this isn't helpful, but I'm leaving it out there if you think that it might be. Of course, I offer this to anyone in the incoming class.
