You got a fee waiver from DU? They told me they were only doing it for people with financial need, not merit based.

Exactly. Half of my office is gone this week.

It doesn't help AT ALL that my SO and two of my bffs have taken a day off of their respective jobs to hit the pow that is pounding the mtns today. Wahhh!!

I got a fee waiver from DU. In my email I specifically asked for a merit-based fee waiver. They must have just stopped the policy and never communicated to the admissions office that they had previously issued fee waivers.. That or someone in admissions doesn't know how to say no very well (or accurately).

Apply anyway DU is a good option if you want to start off your career in Colorado.

Barbie, please keep us posted :) I'd apply to DU with a fee waiver in a second as a second option to stay in CO. Otherwise it's either CU or I'm outta here and coming back 3 years later!

Great minds think alike... I emailed DU after it was mentioned on here, and they very promptly got back to me saying they will grant me one when I provide me LSAC account number! WAHOO!

Same here... Actually, it's all ready to go, I just need the fee waiver to kick in...

I wonder how that will affect $$$ decisions, being a few months late?

Yes, yes... DU is simply a back-up plan for if CU doesn't work out in our favor, which should illustrate our absolute love for the state and extreme desire to practice there after graduation... :D

Unless DU was significantly cheaper, in which case I'd go to DU because I think its a great school too.

I didn't apply to CU when they never responded to my request for a fee waiver, but I lurv the state of Colorado (current college student in CO) and would be interested in talking at length with you applicants about how wonderful the state is.

Fresh air, 300 days of sunshine, tons of hiking, fishing, camping, skiing/snowboarding, mountain biking, etc. Beautiful state in general. Low taxes, good education opportunities, attractive populace, strong economy. I may be biased because I grew up in this state, but I think it's a really great place to live, whether it's in the cities or suburbs or the country.

They responded to mine when I contacted them before the cycle started... then told me to contact them the day admissions were open. I didn't receive a response for over a month and so decided to just re-email them my inquiry... they quickly sent over a fee-waiver after my second email.

Sounds pretty great. 300 days of sunshine? Is it really that good? That would be an amazing change coming off of a year living in Seattle haha... I haven't seen sun since August!

Yes, it's for real :) Some of the things I love (current Denver resident): all of the above plus the large young professional population, friendly people, great music/concert scene, amazing food in Denver/Boulder, and well, man I guess the list could go on forever so I should just stop with that...
