Certainly it is in all of our personal best interest to hear as soon as possible, but I'm struggling to see what difference it will make. Most (if not all) seat deposits are not due until mid April, so if the scholarship information takes a couple of weeks longer than they originally stated, I'm not really getting why it is so important. I can understand that people just want to know so they can make the decision to be done with the whole process, but unless you're planning on moving/looking for an apartment immediately, there is little need to be impatient. Personally, I am going to CU's first admitted students day (the one in March), and I plan on looking for an apartment while I am there. If we still haven't heard by then, perhaps I will be upset then (not that I am thinking I will get any money anyways). Is the hooplah over scholarship money just people being anxious or what?


The short answer... lawyers (and prospective lawyers) are neurotic.

Colorado has no status checker, so don't stress out looking for one. :)

I applied at the end of October and received my confirmation email three weeks later, give or take a few days.



Thats just what I needed to hear, appreciate it.

Now someone define, "on the verge of sending out merit based scholarship info". Does that mean out next week? Or is that just my interpretation?


I have no idea how to interpret that. I originally interpreted "late January" to mean, well, the end of January, but that was obviously the wrong interpretation. :lol: So I don't even know how to begin to decipher, "on the verge of." I hope you're interpretation is right, but I'm not going to count on it. :? I'm just going to personally choose to take it to mean "sometime between next week and July" :P

I got that e-mail 12/18 and haven't heard anything from CU since, FWIW.


Numbers in profile. Quoted myself for timeline...

IN TODAY VIA SNAIL MAIL!!!!!!!! I have never been out west, but Boulder is a city I've been fantasizing about for years. A decent scholarship at Boulder would definitely put it high on my list. According to my letter, dated February 12, those offers "will go out starting in late January." :lol: Nobody here has gotten anything yet, correct? I really hope I get that by April, because it will be a huge factor in my decision... for now I'll start growing my mountain beard, just in case...

In case there are those of you who have been accepted and don't get the scholarship money you were hoping for, please don't let that discourage you. While CU doesn't have the type of scholarship availability that some other schools do, it is still worth considering. The quality of students here really surprises me on a regular basis - both in character and intellect. I just see the comments about how a good scholarship would put it at the top of your lists and worry that a relatively small scholarship will automatically eliminate it from your lists. We all are aware of the possibility of huge debt loads, but try to consider everything.

Congrats man, looks like we're applying to the same schools.

The fact I am local, and do want to eventually settle down in Colorado, puts CU in for the long haul.

Anyone have any idea how difficult it is to gain instate tuition after your first year at CU? This is what I read on the law school's website...

Nonresident students may establish Colorado residency by maintaining a legal residence in Colorado for 12 consecutive months. Once they have established Colorado residency, they qualify for the lower resident tuition rates, except for LLM students. State statute governs residency classification. The admission staff and the CU Tuition Classification Office classify new students as residents or nonresidents for tuition purposes based on admission application information and other documents. Applicants may have to submit evidence substantiating their claim of resident eligibility. The Admissions Application is for U.S. citizens, permanent residents, refugees or asylees, and certain noncitizens with temporary visas who wish to be considered for in-state (Colorado) tuition and who will be Colorado residents for one year as of the first day of class. Exceptions to the one-year requirement are granted for active-duty military, Colorado National Guard members, Olympic athletes, faculty members at state-supported colleges, and employees of companies moving to Colorado with State economic incentives. Married applicants under the age of 22 and applicants who are not Colorado residents but who are married to active-duty military personnel who are Colorado residents or who will be stationed in Colorado should seek further information as indicated above. Find details on residency regulations and exceptions at CU-Boulder Office of the Registrar.

I have heard that it is difficult from some CU undergrads. I do not believe that they will count any time that you are a student as going towards those 12 months.

This is because CU undergrads are not allowed to change their out-of-state status after admissions except under very special circumstances. For graduate and law students, it's easy enough. You just have to make sure to get a license and put your name on a property lease, as posted above. And the time you're in school does count.

Exactly! It is very easy and almost all (except those who ignore procedure) gain residency.
