    School of Mines is THE place for engineering.

    Known a few people who went there. Never heard anything bad.


    Infact, don't we have a CK5er that goes there now?

    I go to Mines :dunno:

    It's pretty tough (significantly more so than the others here in Colorado) but is considered the best engineering school in the region. Lots of good wheelin' around, plus if you ski Golden sits right at the base of the mountains. Golden is a pretty sweet town too (downtown Denver is ~15 minutes away).

    If you decide to come down here and check it out shoot me a PM and I can show you around :thumb:

    Yep, School of Mines. One of my sister's was accepted there, but decided to have a family instead.
