I'm trying to find out more information about scholarship opportunities available 2L & 3L. I can't find much. I was hoping some current students would have some input.... does anyone know about probability of financial aid for 2 & 3L?

Its hard to weigh full-rides and generous offers from other schools with so much "unknown" about CU, particularly for years 2 & 3.

Does anyone know if they are willing to adjust the full/10/10 to an equal distribution over 3 years? Asking b/c it works better with an external scholarship that way.

There are a bunch of internal scholarships you can apply for for years 2 and 3. I honestly don't know how much the average person gets from them - you have to write essays on specific prompts and they don't have specific amounts attached (iirc). It probably depends on how many people take the time to apply. You probably won't be qualified to apply for all of them (e.g. You might need to be from the Western slope/going into tax law/etc).

The full/10/10 is based on the fact that you'll all get in state tuition after 1L. It was admittedly a better deal when in-state was cheaper than it is now.

Has anyone interviewed with them? They sent me an email a few days ago requesting that I email with them. Is that good? Bad?

Received my acceptance packet, said they are reviewing my app for merit scholarships, so no info yet. Anyone else get this?

Thanks for your input. Still wish we could find someone who knew more about it for 2 & 3 L. And yeah, the in-state tuition was way cheaper only a few years ago!

I also had this in my acceptance packet when I received it back in December and they followed up with an email a few weeks later with my scholarship info. Don't worry! I'm not sure why some people get it right away but I still received a good amount of money.

Anyone who applied to CO as a "reach" school, how long was your application in review?

Hey all, checking in since I was just accepted to Colorado Law today. Got the same full/10k/10k offer like many of you. Stats are 168, 3.63 and I had three LOR from CU professors. I personally went to undergrad at CU Boulder so I love both the school and the city of Boulder (cool people, great food/beer, and so on). I ate a ridiculous number of meals at Motomaki (the best place ever!), snarf, half fast, the sink and a few other places the past few years. Not sure on where I'll end up yet but I will definitely follow this post.

From what I can tell on LSN, it looks like they release a large batch of decisions every 7 days. The last large batch was February 7th so here's to getting some love from Colorado on Valentines day.

UR 2/13. Anyone UR in late Jan/early Feb - how long until you rec'd a decision? Seems like 2 weeks is the norm but am thinking it will be longer because of how late it is in the cycle, thoughts?

Nope, what do you have to do for it?

I did get a response that they had received my reconsideration letter.

I would love to know as well. I may have already played my hand by telling them that I plan to attend with my current offer. :shock:

Full tuition for all 3 years? That sounds very interesting if that's the case

Ok so I just got accepted the other day 3.3/164 and it's been my dream to live in CO ever since I was 10 years old and climbed my first 14er. Problem is, I have to be back in MN for drill once a month for the Guard and I don't want to transfer states because MN pays up to 36K a year tuition so it would be crazy to throw that away. Plane tickets look to be pretty cheap round trip from Denver to MSP (avg $125 a round trip for a fri-sun trip). My question is would that be entirely unreasonable to go to CO and fly back for drill once a month? I just have no idea how much of a problem that would pose to academics, how much professors would be willing to work with me, and as well as how often flights get cancelled out of Denver etc...

Totally not doable...
