The first year of my MBA program was a joke. Minimal effort required to pass the class with an A or a B. Then in the second year, classes finally hit "grad" level of intensity. The tough classes definitely made it somewhat worth it to come, you definitely get what you put into it and learn a ton. |
However it barely makes up for how much the people suck. The faculty isn't too bad, although they can be arrogant and condescending. But I found it very hard to make friends and get to the know the students. They are snooty, unfriendly, and uninteresting. The best you can hope for a social life is grabbing a beer at The Crimson and Gold and attending student galas held every quarter.
I also need to highlight a growing problem at Daniels: A great number of students are international students (i.e. from China) and there is palpable tension between the international student and American students. The international students are largely ignored and they tell me it's hard to meet get to know the American students as they don't seem very open, interested or friendly. They are isolated and resort to helping out each other (some even say they cheat as a result). This level of isolation is completely inappropriate IMO compared to how I've seen international students being treated at, say, CU Boulder.

| Know what you're getting into. DU is EXTREMELY liberal and ideological. You are presented with a very narrow view of the world and differing opinions are not appreciated. |

| Stay away from any Cornerstone managed apts on the Denver University campus, these guys are a joke, more into promoting their social events then real work, they really like the young girls, Denver University is really losing money because of the amateurs.|

| While the faculty is helpful and supportive, the classes offered do not provide a diverse education. Grad students are expected to already be experts in the field they are studying, and having a diverse academic background is a handicap. The students themselves are competitive to the point of rudeness - monopolizing resources, hiding tips for getting ahead, and becoming irate if another student is meeting with a professor when he/she wants to walk in. On the plus side, graduating on time is easy. |

| The quality of my certificate program was at about the level of high school. There seemed to be no criteria for selecting participants, and the quality of the work showed it. All but one of the teachers were accessible, knowledgable, and positive, though not very helpful. The sixth was a useless tool, inspite of being the only one with a PhD. For example, the totality of his commentary on a paper counting for 25% of the grade consisted of "Good." |

| I have enter the Masters of Legal Administration Program at the Sturm Law school. Overall the program lacks. The program entices the student by telling them that it is an easy way to enter law school and that 10 credits of a completed MSLA program will go towards a law degree. However, once enrolled in the program the student finds that the program lacks the curriculum and the instructors lack the teaching skills to make the program worthy of the time or money invested. In fact, students who recently graduated said the only reason the completed the program was because their education was being funded. Other students have said that they had invested too much money so they felt they needed to complete the program. |
My advice is seek an MBA and paralegal certificate.Otherwise this program is master's with low quality education.

| DU's Law school was great! Beautiful building, great professors, and extremely challenging! Law students were a little too hard core for me though. There was a lot of cut-throat competition. All in all, it was a great experience, it prepared me for life as a lawyer! |

| I made some friends, gained some life experience, and learned a whole lot about the business world. It is what I was looking for. |
