Hi All,

This thread is aimed at people who completed/are working on a Masters of Urban and Regional Planning at the University of Colorado Denver. I want to get your thoughts on how strong the program is.

UCD is near the top of my list of grad schools with planning programs (the main one being the University of Illinois at Chicago). UCD seems to have a decent program and Denver is a nice place with good networking opportunities. But I want to get some thoughts from current and former grad students. I would be focusing on Community Development, and possibly Urban Transportation.

Any and all input is appreciated!

Sounds like maybe UCD is the better option - although I'm not sure if the test results are a product of the quality of the program or the quality of students that those programs attract.
