It's true. And with the Governator, we are sorely lacking in funds + raising tuition. Soon it'll be as expensive as Harvard.

Such grade deflation is fairly common amongst public schools, and though adcomms know this(I'd be willing to bet), it doesn't help with USN&WR to say, "But half of our students came from publics!"

The average GPA is 2.99 here, and we're too much lower than W&M.

Where should I go next fall? / Re: UMich 2L taking Q's

What's the meal plan like? Does it allow you to eat meals at other places besides the Lawyer's Club Commons? Are there RAs and the like in the Lawyer's Club? What's the layout like?

How's the snow? I'm from Southern California, and have never spent any significant time in a real "Winter," and indeed only a little bit even in Northern California, which is temperate compared to Michigan. Will I be all right provided I stay indoors and get big coats?

How is it meeting undergraduates? Does Michigan tap law students to TA any classes? Are there any other available opportunities for fellowships/the like?

More in a bit.

Thanks for the info-you've pretty much confirmed all the good things I've heard about Michigan. I'm strongly considering it as my #1 realistic choice.

Tell us all about the Lawyer's Club, if you lived there!

How is the food? Eating in those wood-paneled rooms must be nice.
How is the social life? Do people date a lot? Are most people(women especially) already attached?
Are there many offical and un-official get-togethers for the law students?
Where do students generally hang out?

How competitive are the classes? Generally collegial or intense? What's the grading like?

You were placed on probation for taking below the minimum number of units?

Usually, they do require you to take a certain number of units without a petition for deficit, but I'd be surprised if this were an academic thing. You should contact someone in the school to see if it's on your disciplinary report. I can't see this being in the same vein as things as getting caught cheating. It's like you forgot to pay your tuition on time and you had your registration held or something.

General Off-Topic Board / Re: POLL: Who will win the Rose Bowl?

I'm a Bruin fan, but come on, the Trojans are going to win, just like in the Trojan War...

Seriously, though. USC.
