Just found out I got in via snail mail (regular decision, non-resident)! I called my roommate and had him open my mail.

Congrats! I kind of enjoy the excitement of not having a status checker.

Hi! I have a question for you. I am a non-trad: I've been out of school for (cough) nearly 20 years, have a husband and 2 little kids... I'm wondering how I would fit in, at CU? (My husband is an alum of CU, UG and we would very much like to move back to the area.) Any info/advice you could give would be appreciated! Thanks.

Thanks - I'd actually seen that on the site, but the Non-Trad association is currently inactive so I was wondering about the reality of the situation (if they have one 48 year old student and everyone else is below 32, that makes a difference!) Thank you, though!

What do you mean how will you fit in? In all of the law classes I have sat in on, there were only 1, maybe 2, older students (30+). I think that would be par for the course even if 10% of the entering class were 30+. I don't think it would be a problem though.

Several of the other schools I'm looking at cater more to "older" or Non-Trad students and all have very active NT associations.
If you are the only one in class who has kids/family, it can be isolating. I'm hoping to wind up in a school where there are other students who are going through a similar experience.

Which schools cater to non-trads?

I will be 35 in two weeks, and have two daughters, ages 10 and 11. How old are your kids?

Mostly schools with evening programs - Fordham, UConn - although some of the larger urban schools like BU also have very active NT groups. This makes sense, of course: those of us with families would prefer to go to school at night, while the kids are sleeping/doing homework! Admittedly, I'd prefer to do a night program... but I miss Boulder and we would love to move back.

Wow! That's great! (And congrats - you're in, right?!) I'm a few years older ( :shock: ) and my kids are 3 and 5.
edit: also 2 girls

I've been admitted and am very seriously considering Colorado. I'm a bit older than average, and I'm married with a two year old girl.

Also, I applied Oct 1st.

Yes, I will be attending.

Boulder is such a great place to raise kids. The three of us have been really happy in this community, and especially with the public schools here.

(I had my daughters when I was quite young- most people get college out of the way, then have kids. I had kids first, did college later. This is great if you want your kids to grow up with a strong involvement in education.)

anyone have any predictions for me? 164/3.6 applying regular decision.

I applied last year out of state and got waitlisted. I removed myself from the waitlist because I decided to defer a year, and now i'm applying again (with somewhat updated app info) and I'll be in state this year.

let me know!

CONGRATS to everyone who has already gotten in. Boulder is amazing!

I am in a very rigorous MA program right now. I can tell you that those of us with a child(ren) have way more stress and have to work quite a bit harder (same with grocery shopping :D ). But it's doable. Somehow it has all worked out for us.

Thanks so much for posting this! I have a very involved spouse and while I know it'll be hard, I'm sure we'll muddle through. (like grocery shopping!)
Hooray for grad school with kids!
