2. It's a very nice school, not terribly expensive and a very decent reputation

It's in downtown Denver, co-shares campus facilities with University of Colorado at Denver. What's your son being recruited for? My sister played soccer for them for 2 years and they've had a very good Mens' basketball team. I'd say give Metro a look - it's a good school in a great city.

5. cross country. they want to fly him up. i want to drive him up, lol.

i will stay in the hotel and let him do.

he has really good grades and other stuff, so maybe academic also, but at those prices, not as desperate for scholarships.

this is really good to hear.

7. Very cool - I hope there's a good visit for you both!

I'm sure if he attended here you'd enjoy visiting - Denver's a pretty cool place.

8. Metro a good school

I lived near downtown Denver and Metro State for 21 years and have lived in Boulder for 17 years. Colorado is a great place to live and study. Metro has a fine reputation and I have known many people who received their undergraduate and graduate degrees there and are doing well at their jobs, such as social workers. Good diversity and support for low income, minority, and international students. But I know little about athletics.
The school was set up for urban and commuting serious students, most of them living off campus and working at the same time. It does not have the "fun and party" rep of CU or the cost of Univ of Denver (which I think are good things) Also not the rep for outstanding programs in science etc and national grants as CU and CSU at Ft. Collins have and some good scholarships, but out of state tuition is high. Colorado College is an outstanding small private liberal arts college in Colorado Springs but very expensive.
Many Metro students probably don't have time or money for all the great things to do in CO like skiing, but there's no place like CO for enjoying the outdoors and good liberal instructors at the same time (except maybe CA)!

9. My wife has a degree from there

She thinks highly of it.

She also has a degree from Enormous State University in another state, one with a top reputation in her field, and she preferred Metro.

12. I go to UC Denver, which is also on the Auraria campus.

Metro State is a solid school.

14. Metro state produced the sole right winger in my platoon!

but I can hardly blame the school for his problems. I know some people who have gone there and they all seem happy with it and came out educated.
