    apham,

    Congrats on the interview! I am applying for the July start date. While I can't speak to the school itself, I can give you some info about Denver, apartments, etc. I would recommend looking for a place somewhere along the lightrail, or uptown. The school is downtown, so most apartments around there may be a bit on the pricy side, but it is fairly easy to commute on public transportation down there. There are a couple of college campuses downtown (Metro state, UC Denver, CCD) and near wash park (DU), which is right next to the lightrail, so you may be able to find roommates that are students from those campuses.

    Weather can be all over the place (its about 3 degrees with 8 inches of snow at my house right now, but it was like 60 on Tuesday), but it is almost always sunny In my opinion, Denver doesn't have a 'big city feel' but there are a lot of great local restaurants and shops, and a ton, ton of parks, trails and outdoorsy things to do, and of course skiing, all within a couple hours of the metro area. Good luck with your interview!!

    Thank so much for the info! I'll definitely keep it all in mind when I go apartment hunting.
