Love it. Free drinks are definitely the way to my good graces
When I get to Boulder, I'm going to do my best to do 12 hour days Mon-Thurs, so as soon as the last class dismisses on Friday it's time to hit the slopes and the bottle.
1. You won't need to be doing 12 hour days (unless a legal writing assignment is due).
2. CU Law students start drinking on Thursday (traditionally, we have a few kegs of free beer in the commons on Thursday afternoon, then hit the bars afterwards - it is your duty to keep this going; the current 1Ls are failing at this miserably).

When I flew up for the open house... Three years ago? Man, law school really does fly by.
Anyway, when I flew up three years ago, I rented a car from Dollar. There was an under-25 charge, but it wasn't that bad. I would never have gotten as good a feel for the area had I not been able to aimlessly drive around after the open house events.
That said, if you don't want to rent, the RTD AB route is the best option, followed by SuperShuttle (the latter of which is way quicker because it uses the toll beltway). If you can't find a rental car for under the $180 a cab would cost round-trip, even with the young driver surplus, you fail at internet travel shopping (I mean, using Southwest, a round trip flight from most airports to DEN would be cheaper than that cab ride). Unless you're drunk and it's like ten below, there's no reason to use cabs in Colorado.
If anyone is looking for accommodations, use Hotwire's blind deals and choose the cheapest place in the Louisville/Superior geographical area. All the hotels in that geographical square are newer and are pretty nice. The worst you can get is the pretty-new Louisville Comfort Inn, which is perfectly acceptable. More typically, it's the Louisville La Quinta, which is great. 10 minute drive from the law building, but usually way cheaper (and nicer, at the lower price ranges) than anything with a Boulder address (and still a 10 minute drive from the law building).
