Oh ffs. I had a long response to this, but the internet ate it.
I'll try to respond in full later - I agree it should be addressed, but the answer everyone will come up will be different depending on each person. 2014 != 2009, for better or worse. The decision shouldn't rest entirely (and arguably even significantly) on employment statistics that will be five years old when you graduate. It should rest on how much risk you're willing to take, and what you're willing to do to make things work.
Agree, I don't think anyone wants to mix gloomy economic reports with heavy drinking. Plus, on a totally unrelated note, anyone know approximate cab fare from the airport to campus? I'm staying at La Quinta 2 blocks east of campus, and am debating whether or not to rent a car.
If you go to DIA's website, they have transportation options, including cab fares (they're all a flat rate from the airport, but I'm not sure how much to go to DU). I think it's $50 to $60, but you can also take a Skyride bus, a Super Shuttle, or just rent a car.
