Perhaps, but problem is, I believe they have a 25% in-state quota. And Michigan only accepts top students to their law school. And what is the top school in Michigan? Oh, that's right, it's Michigan! So, they don't really have much choice.The kid from Michigan who went to Princeton is still likely in-state in Michigan. So is the guy who graduated from MIT but is working in Michigan. And "top students" means "top GPA and LSAT" not "top undergrad reputation".
That's what I was thinking too, but I wasn't sure about the residency rules. Another thing I've heard from native Michiganites is that, even though UM is a (the?) top public school, they still wish they'd gone out of state for undergrad. So I imagine a lot have done just that, but may then return for law school.
